Something Old...Something New...

My husband and I are celebrating our 15th anniversary with a family trip to Hawaii.  While there, we're planning to take a quiet moment to renew our vows!  We've been so happy, learned so much, and had so many life adventures in the past 15 years that we wanted to celebrate with our kids.

When my oldest son was born, my mom and I took apart my wedding dress to make a Christening gown with a lace blanket.  Both my boys were baptized in this piece of my wedding dress.

For our vow renewal, I wanted a piece of my original wedding dress also.
I took a couple scraps of lace, several buttons and lots of beads off my veil and created....
...this bracelet.  It will go perfectly with the dress I have for the occasion and it will be a perfect reminder of my original dress.  I am so excited!


  1. You are so crafty! What a great idea. Looking forward to the pictures and hearing all about your Hawaii trip :)

  2. I love this idea!

    And since I love your blog, I have tagged you in a meme. Share your blog philosophy/motivation!

  3. That's such a cool idea!
    I'm sure I couldn't squeeze my hips into my original gown. Problem solved!


I love hearing from my readers...please leave a comment!
