Lace and Loveliness

Yesterday I went to visit my parents and to give my Mum her weekly bath. Quite unusually my youngest decided to come with me. After bathtime we all sat around the kitchen table and Dad made a pot of tea, we all chatted and laughed and spent lovely time with each other.

Just before we left my youngest reminded me that last time we were down we had planned to see if my Mums wedding dress fitted her. Mum and Dad married back in August 1952, it was a double wedding with her twin sister and both had identical dresses made my Dad's youngest sister.

As you can see above, 58 years on it still looks old-fashionably beautiful and I truly have to admit (although I wouldnt wish married life on her for at least another 10 years!) it did make me go all mushy to see her looking so lovely!
