Wedding Cakes, Toppers & Bride Dolls
Wedding Week 2007

June is just such a wonderful month for a wedding! Of course, I would think that, as our wedding anniversary is June 14th, Flag Day. Below is our Bride & Groom Wedding Cake Topper. Hmmmm, it is turning slightly "ivory" where it once was bright white......wonder what THAT means?!?!

Below are a couple of pictures of a cake my daughter designed for me. Ours was originally an all white confection which I think is just timeless classic beauty, but these days, if I had it to do over again, I think I might go "PINK!" So, I can keep this one out year round now & satisfy my need for a pink wedding cake in my wedding themed bedroom!

This is my prized porcelain Scarlett O'Hara Bride Doll by Seymour Mann. I was lucky enough to purchase her from a fellow GONE WITH THE WIND enthusiast that was sizing down her collection. She is exquisite, especially with those green glass eyes & pearl necklace & tons of bridal satin & lace. Thanks, Deb, I'm giving her a great new home!
Funny story, my granddaughter who lives with us, says this doll absolutely creeps her out! She recently made us remove all dolls with glass eyes from her bedroom so she could sleep. What is up with that?!? Maybe she saw my pal Karla's post on what she did to a poor nephew when he came home for a visit! Check out her cute sense of humor at karla's cottage!!

I've got lots more wedding pictures & things to share with you all this week ~ please join me & my friend Lori at pink faded roses for more wedding goodies & tidbits! Would love to see some of you post some of your wedding stories, goodies, trivia, etc, too! Hope to see you here again tomorrow!

Stephanie, What a lovely Wedding cake! Your Daughter did such a wonderful job desiging it. It looks just like my wedding cake from 1966. Mine too was white but the pink is so much nicer... June 14 is a great day for a wedding & it's my birthday too. What fun I've had viewing all the lovely Wedding photos on the blogs.. I just may have to join in on too. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed yours. Have a good day :-} ~Mary~

Stephanie, Thank you my friend for joining me! I love that big cake! You made me remember how much wedding stuff I have...I have got to borrow a camera from someone before Marc returns from Leadership camp in FL.! Plus now I have a home project of re-displaying my wedding things! Oh, I have 3 nieces with a daughter each who is also afraid of glass eyed dolls!! Now I could see if it was a "Chuckie doll" Love, Lori
