I’ve had some inquiries concerning my recent whereabouts.
I’m in Pennsylvania at my parent’s house. I’ve been here for about 3 weeks. I’m actually going to drive home on Friday. That’s good. I miss my kids and my darling. I came to PA to help out for as loing as I could. My youngest sister will be taking my place when I leave.
I need to go home because we have a short vacation planned for the end of next week and also Plyaway is coming quickly and even thouigh I packed up all of my materials before I left, I need to ship the boxes and get some other bits ready to go.
While I’ve been here we’ve gone through some family pictures and joked and laughed a lot. I also found my wedding hat and the jacket to my wedding dress. The rest of the dress is at home in my closet.
Your eyes are not deceiving you. It is pink. Victorian-like. When I got married my parents owned a victorian mansion that they ran as a bed and breakfast. I used to work there. We had the wedding out in the back yard with a tent and all the things. It was the best wedding I’ve ever been to.
My mom made my dress, the bridesmaids dresses, did all of the flowers and most of the food. Here’s her picture:
The dress story is kind of funny. I had been to several dress shops and tried things on but nothing was right. We were sitting together at a bridal show waiting for the dress fashion show to begin and I saw the lghtbulb appear over her head. I quickly got her some paper and a pencil and she sketched my dress as well as a hat to match. We didn’t even see any of the dresses before she was done sketching.
After that we went to Philadelphia to choose the fabric and this pink brocade was the perfect thing for the dress.
I had brocade pumps dyed to match…I wonder where they got to.
So, the question of the day is this: without taking the whole thing apart, is there a way to clean the tulle on the hat? It’s very grey and dusty.
I’ll be taking all of this home with me on Friday.
