Something old...

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something the old saying goes.  So a garter was made for the beautiful bride using new lace, vintage lace and a blue button.  Only the something borrowed left to think about...

The lace flowers are still in the process of being made and are coming along nicely.

A very pleasant couple of hours spent with beautiful lace old and new.  Some beautiful laces to match a beautiful bride and certainly made with love.
The wood element of the wedding is now being worked on, the coasters have now been cut by my wonderful husband they now need sanding, stamping and waxing.  The stamps are inspirational quotes such as "there are many good times ahead," and "one smile can warm the world".

The large centre pieces have been cut and are ready for sanding and waxing.

Last but not least the cake stand ready for some magic...

All the elements are starting to come together just needs some concentrated time spent on it, but its looking good.   I will keep you updated with progress.
See you soon.
