Hi all, and happy Sunday.
I have been hold up all weekend in my studio working like crazy. I have a lot of stuff to show you and tell you about in a future blog post. It's a little secret.
More about that later.
This coming Saturday is the wedding of my good friend Joan's son. I have been helping her with a few wedding details. It is a travel theme wedding. I made a few of the decorations, escort cards, table numbers etc. I will try to get some photos at the wedding to show you what I'm talking about.
Anyway, this has got me thinking of wedding cake. Don't you just love watching those cake shows on TV? I really do. There is one called Amazing Wedding Cakes, The Cake Boss, and Ace of Cakes. I thought you might like these graphics I found in my little collection, plus this really cool photo of my grandparents on their wedding day in the 1920's. Just look at the detail on the dress and veil, amazing!
I also wanted to use this funny wedding song that I found for my blog. Listen to the words, it's cute.
We are having dreary weather here, and it's suppose to rain, just as long as it's clear by next Saturday for the wedding. Well, I'm getting ready to go over to my daughter Amanda's house for Sunday dinner. It's a fun thing we do every Sunday. She cooks for us, we get to play with baby Jake, and I do the dishes. It's a win, win!!
Have a great week!
Chat again soon.

Love that picture of your grandparents! Fabulous dress! Funny, I just found a little wedding cake topper and a bridal veil at the flea market this morning...we must be on the same wave length!
Have a great week!
Give Jake an extra hug for me!

The picture of your grandparents is so wonderful!

I bought an old vintage cake topper recently and I am going make a faux wedding cake with it!

I hope you have had a wonderful day!

I love wedding cakes! So beautiful and grand.

Your grandparents look so somber -- what a big day for them -- the dress and hat are gorgeous.
