WEDDING GIFTS – 20 YEARS LATER – WHAT WE STILL USE
January 22, 2015
I kind of miss it. There were a few years there where I was in at least one wedding a summer…
…and many, many more that I simply attended. It was so fun, traveling, dressing up, seeing old friends… making new ones, dancing, cocktails, drama, decorations…little flower girls and ring bearers…and meeting adorable babies…and then. Finally ME! and then….
We were ALL hitched….then came the BABY YEARS…and so on and so on and so on. Now I have friends whose children are getting married and one friend who is expecting her first grandchild!…the beat goes on…one door closes…another opens at the same time…it is JUST LIFE!
Today I thought it would be fun to take a tour through my house and see if I can find
10 WEDDING GIFTS (20 YEARS LATER) THAT STILL IN USE…
1. THE CHERUB MIRROR (ABOVE)
2. THE HAND-PAINTED WOODEN SERVER TRAY
3. THE “LESLIE AND DAMAN” PLATTER
4. THE SEARS BOX

6.VINTAGE FIESTA WARE PITCHER
7. GRAMS CHAIR
8. IRON POTTERY BARN CANDLE STICKS
9.REED AND BARTON FLATWARE

…..poking around, it was fascinating and eye opening to see what we no longer use…what has lasted and what we have destroyed…many times over…I bet we have been through 100 drinking glasses and at least 3 sets of pots and pans.
One thing is for sure, as I poked around the internet, looking at Weddings ON PINTEREST now days…THEY have become such a wonderful opportunity for creativity!!! I could spend all day looking at all the little personal touches…special LITTLE THINGS AND HOW personal they have become!!! My head was spinning, maybe when all the kids are out of the house, I can turn our house and our yard into a place where people get married!!! who knows!!!
