something old, something blue
I have a special gift for ms*louisa..... my dear Nan - Jean, loved to keep all her gorgeous lace handkerchiefs for 'good' and lucky me, was given them all when she passed away. I treasure them with my heart. I have one special one, which still has the little sticker on it and I am going to give it to ms*louisa tomorrow as the 'something old' * along with a collage card that I made for just this day. I photo copied a picture of my nan when she was a little girl and cut out her head. I also found a picture of a vintage wedding gown which was the PERFECT size for the head! so I made a collage, with romantic words stuck here and there as well as a gorgeous flower right on the waist. Looks delightful. I wrapped this and the hankie up in blue tissue, tied it with a blue vintage ribbon and finished the whole parcel with a vintage flower. something very, very special for tomorrow.
