Welcome to White Wednesday

Welcome to White Wednesday hosted by Kathleen at Faded Charm. Check out her blog to see all the wonderful white posts for this week.

Last week for white Wednesday I featured some of my wedding collection mostly wedding cake toppers and this week I will continue with my collection. I am featuring wedding memory boxes. These are my favorites and I will start out with my best of the best. I have two French Wedding boxes shown here. They are in glass with a small throne with the wedding head dress sitting on it. There are small mirrors with hand painted flowers on them. I love the detail the French always give to their treasures.
These sit on my mantle in my living room under my other prized possession (which is not white, but I won't tell if you won't) an oval mirror with cherubs that represent all the art forms. Each cherub has either an instrument, paint pallet, book or dancing etc.

Love the ormolu

Funny how the camera picks up certain colors...that red is not that bright and the head piece is white - so in the house it looks much more subtle

This is another French piece. It is a French wedding basket with a letter written to the bride from her groom, it is in the back ground. The basket is made of moss with silk ribbon and velvet flowers.

These next boxes are memory shadow boxes with the brides head piece made of wax flowers inside. Some have the veil also.

This is a bridal head piece made of wax flowers and I made a wreath out of it and hung it on my window...

Hope you enjoyed my white offerings this Wednesday. I always love hearing from you and I will be around to see your wonderful white treasures.
