Welcome to White Wednesday

Welcome to another White Wednesday hosted by Kathleen at Faded Charm...
it seems lately I only post on Wednesdays, this has been a busy summer probably the same as yours. I wish I could say it has been all fun but things could be a lot worse. This week I am enjoying my grand daughter Savannah, we have been making crowns, purses and paper dolls. She is a very girly girl at 3 years.
This White Wednesday I am featuring my collection of wedding treasures. I love the old cake toppers with the French paste' work and the old wax flowers.
Collections in my opinion should be edited and contained. I love them and have lots of different little and big collections but they have to serve a decorative purpose. Here is where I keep most of my wedding collection, it is in my dining room.















Just love wedding pictures also - I have quite a few of them but keep them in an old album...this one someone put on linen with lace around it.








These little bouquets of wax flowers in paper tussy mussy's I bought from Judy at Tapestries of Nature, She made the tussy mussys...I just love them.









This is my grandfather and grandmother Bauman's wedding photo - so lucky to have it in the original frame,which I happen to love.












Wedding Veil and wax flower head piece



This is one of my favorite pieces, it is a victorian table display it is under glass. It is a swinging gate made of linen flowers
I wish you could see the creamy color and the gate posts are wooden painted in a faded robins egg blue.



I have another collection of wedding boxes with the marriage certificates and head dresses, which I will post next WHITE WEDNESDAY.

Sorry blurry. but the bell is French Paste'

Thanks for stopping by this Wednesday...sorry I posted late but I am not used to getting little ones ready in the morning anymore :)
Grace and Blessings

  13. These are beautiful pictures of your family, Rebecca...a treasure to cherish. They are valuable beyond measure, and I'm so glad you shared them with us. I'm looking for some vintage frames to display some old photos of my family as well. There's something about them that gives me a sense of history and belonging. Thanks for sharing! Mary

  18. I am glad to hear that you had fun spending time with your granddaughter.They are alot of fun.Being that I only put 3 early hours at the YMCA I see what 6mths to 6yrs do and oh.. yes the things that they say too.
    I can see why you collect such beautiful wedding pieces.There are to many shades of white and the textures are so very neat.I bet each of the cake toppers has a story to tell as well.Very nicely displayed.Have a great day!! (PS.. I too have had a few late white wedensdays,he he.)Fun Finds 2 U...Chickie

  22. Hello Rebecca
    Let me start by saying I'm not sure why I've never been on your blog, cause I love it! I love your store, your home and your studio! I found you this morning and I'm glad I did! I would love to visit your shop! I am trying to figure out how far it is from me! I am adding you to my blog list, if that's ok?
