Something old...

and blue enough that I'm calling it my "something blue."

I was thinking about how I would love to wear or to have something at my wedding that reminds me of my grandmother. She's been gone for 16 years now (half my life!), but I still miss her. She was a tiny, ferocious woman. I think of her often, particularly since I live in her house.

My aunt looked around for something I could borrow and found the absolutely perfect thing.

It's the handkerchief that my grandmother gave my aunt at her wedding! And it is lace trimmed with a lovely little bird and two rings and oh my, do I love it.

I mean, seriously - look at that bird!

I plan to wrap it around my bouquet (perhaps with some tissue below it so it doesn't get further stained).

My aunt might have to fight me for it to get it back. :)


  1. Gah!! Want!!! -You can keep her hot-pants, though ;)

  2. Trust me, no one wants to keep grandma's hot pants! I miss her. Still makes me laugh.
