That weddding and another

My sisiter and I were talking about that wedding last night, which prompted Barb to mention our mother's lovely lace wedding dress, and she reminded me that I have the top which was made up from the lace after the wedding.  I wish I knew what happened to the rest of the lace.  This top looks pretty special, I would never have fitted into it unfortunately.  The lace is still in pretty good condition ( the wedding was 1936), but has yellowed a bit over time.  I shall take a bit more care with this lace now I have remembered I have it.  I didn't even have it wrapped in tissue, just shoved in a storage box - how bad is that!

Photo does not do this justice, but was the best I could get.


  1. Lovely photo of your Mum Robin, and what a gorgeous dress and veil. She wouldn't have looked out of place in Westminster Abbey! Fantastic to still have some of that lace.

  2. What a gorgeous frock, veil and bouquet your mother had Robin. I love wedding photos 'from the past'. I think I have my in-laws' somewhere, must go and look for it. Your lace top looks lovely, and I'm sure it makes you feel special to wear it. Don't panic about your 'storage', we are all guilty of such things at times.

  3. Robin, the lace is lovely - as is the picture of your mother. The flowers look really spectacular.
