Next is a really neat retro PINK SWAN TV Lamp that I sold on eBay last year. Isn't it just too cool? To the right is another of my little cherub lamps that I outfitted with a pearl drop shade. To the left is another pin money purse, PINK of course!
My last picture shows another little pink pin money purse & one of my new favs to collect, a Lefton china hand vase. I have lined the back of my armoire with Laura Ashley Isabelle fabric & love the soft pinks & stripes.

He also made both of us this little spice cabinet. He said he would never make another one of these as he didn't like carving out drawers to fit. I love it.
He made the weathered wood column for my birdhouse one year for Valentine's Day. Just showed up & surprised me with it. I was so blessed to have my parents living close by ~ only about 5 minutes away.
I can only hope that there are plenty more good, - no - great men out there like my Daddy. The world would be a better place & today's children would be much happier. A loving dad that is always there for you makes all the difference in the world.

Also got these gorgeous red roses with tiny fairy dust glitter on the baby's breath. I may not have a garden, but I have some beautiful flowers, too, now!
We had a wonderful Italian dinner at our favorite restaurant, Mamma Emilia's, complete with yummy raspberry cheesecake. Now I need to jog around the block!

So I did a little research & found out that originally wedding cakes were fruitcakes (ugh ~ we all know what THOSE taste like!). When Queen Victoria's daughter got married in the 1800's, she decided to buck tradition & wanted a WHITE cake. Monkey see, monkey do, everyone started wanting WHITE bride's cake. If you were affluent & could afford WHITE flour & REFINED sugar, you flaunted it by serving a WHITE cake.
In the 1970's people started thinking it might be nice to offer a different flavor option, plus what if there weren't enough bride's cake to serve all the hungry guests? Thus a new tradition of serving chocolate groom's cake was begun. Think this was also the start of a boost in the Southern bakeries businesses & in our Southern waistlines!! :0)
Here is a traditional two-tiered groom's cake with gorgeous swags......
A unique TOPHAT groom's cake complete with matching HATBOX in masculine stripes made by Sugar Cakes of Santa Barbara............
A not-so-typical cheesecake covered in chocolate ganache, decorated with Belgian chocolate "tiles", also made by Sugar Cakes. First seen in IN STYLE magazine.....
An adorable "Tuxedo" groom's cake made by Freed's Bakery of Las Vegas.........

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!
