Show and Tell Friday ~ Sunny Days

As a child, I was given this sweet book by an aunt. I don't know when or how she aquired it, but if you look at the third photo you will see it was patened November 22, 1887.

Ring Bearer Pillows with Vintage lace

 Our middle daughters (we have 4) are twins and they were married in a double wedding ceremony in 2002. I found handsome pillows with beautiful tassels at a local store. I stitched vintage hankies onto each pillow as well as a ribbon across the back for the young Ring Bearers to use while carrying each set of wedding rings. Then I added a beautiful lace piece that came from the blouse my mother (their Grandmother) worn for her marriage in 1945 ~ 57 years earlier!

Here are a couple of links to posts about Jill & Brad and Jamie & Josh's wedding
