2 Days to Go

2 Days To Go
My sweet friend & PRH Sister Rhea of SweetNShabbyRoses gifted us with this yesterday for the wedding!!

She also sent some adorable Christmas goodies for me that I will post soon! Suffice it to say that if you are needing some GORGEOUS unique gifts this holiday season, Rhea is the "go to" girl!!

She is truly one of the sweetest, most thoughtful, & talented pretty women I've ever met. She sent the kids a beautiful sheer organdy gift pouch decorated with a sweet tiny gold angel, just full of pretties!!

Two of her gorgeous wedding tags, a large chocolate wedding card with such a sweet verse on the back side, 3 adorable vintage tiny wedding cards (hey, these would be awesome in my wedding memorabilia collection, Bree!), & a very pretty mirrored picture frame with chocolate velvet ribbon. She even included a large bag of goodies for last minute fix-ups ~ ivory & white bows with beautiful tiny flowers & pearl sprays & pearl streamers, & several large bunches of dainty flowers. See what I mean about her being such a thoughtful person?

These are from my PRH sister Bertie.
Miss Bertie of Aunt May's Cottage is playing a big part in this wedding! I purchased many of her wonderful handmade medallions to use as pew bow centers, for the backs of chairs, & for holding up lace overlay swags on the cake tables & guest registry. If you are in need of spicing up your life with sumptious Victorian beauty, please check out her wonderful store!

Below are just some of her beautiful creations.I love all the gorgeous lace trim, the sequins, the pearls, the floral sprays! WoW!

This gorgeous tulle pew bow Bertie gifted us with is actually a deep chocolate, don't know why my camera made it look black. It is beautiful & I'm going to use it as the center of the swag over the French doors to the ballroom at the reception!

Here is yet another gift she sent Bree & Anthony!
Glittery handmade heart ornies for the feather tree, an entire dozen of them! & a darling Victorian bridal fan for Bree!

I would love to just bottle up both Rhea & Bertie & zap them here to help with all the decorating. Between Bertie's flair for Victorian & Rhea's great sense of style they would really be a dynamic duo! Colin Cowie, watch out!!

Tomorrow is the rehearsal! Wow, time is flying.

More tomorrow (I hope I hold out!)

Such a beautiful and wonderful time in your life and I can't wait to see all of the pictures of the actual moments.
Happy Thanksgiving my friend,
