I was fortunate to be married to the love of my life for 43 years before he passed away to his heavenly home. Our 50th anniversary would've been this past Saturday, June 27, 2020. As a way to celebrate the day and to honor our life together, I brought out our wedding album and some other mementos.
Yes, I still have leftover napkins from our reception.
This plate was a gift from my late Great Aunt Kitty, whose china painting teacher made this pretty plate.
Our wedding cake topper still looks pretty good after 50 years, but just a little yellowed.
I had some English breakfast tea in this pretty cup, which was again painted by Aunt Kitty's teacher, but Aunt Kitty painted the matching plate. How do I know? They signed their names on the back.
I was thrilled to be one of four lucky recipients to win this adorable cake stands from the sweet Linda at Life and Linda. It arrived on my doorstep this past week. I can see using this for so many things and for many tea parties. Thank you, Linda!! My friend Debbie at Mountain Breaths was also a winner, and she suggested that I make some little heart cookies for my anniversary. I thought that was a great idea.
My friend Lynn at Happier Than A Pig In Mud had made some cute tie-dyed spritz cookies recently, and I had been wanting to try them. Lynn showed how to form the balls of dough and place them in the cylinder of the cookie press. I colored mine to match my dishes. On my third round of filing my cylinder, my cookie press broke, and I had to slide the rest of the dough out and did slice and bake. They still turned out really pretty.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
