Morning sweet peeps...and the suns out..but dont shout it out it may disapear im sure its shy!!!!....well after yesterday visit another surprise to quickly pop and see one of my resis,,,,i had a inquiry from her to possible amke a very ott card for a wedding in France..but her friends wanting list went on a bit..as my resis friend was visiting her last week and admired the egg i made her (which even though easter has gone she still keeps on show aw how sweet..)well this friend saw it and begged it off her to take home to Crick,,,,because her grandaughter is getting married in France on the 9th May and she had been trying to find a very unique card..the story was...her grandaughter whilst moving to France from her parent's home ages ago and went into the attic for some of her bits and found much to the amazement of her mother a wedding dress that along with a couple of very old photos was the dress her great gran married in back in 1912...and although her great grandmother would have nearlly been a 100 this year the daughter's mum had inherited the family home had never gone to the attic..so this find was very sentimental and although it was slighly discoloured it had survived all these years in brown paper and string ....the grandaughter wasnt at the time even courting but vowed shed wear the dress when and if she ever married....so!!!hope you havent fallen asleep...yet..quite a long post so grab a cofee and a sandwich you might need refreshement if you stay with it..LOL!!!!!
anway to cut a long story short ..she moved out to do a aupair in france meet and feel in love...and yes the dress having been taken to bits and re modelled sligtly ie the size her gran must have been a average sized lady..ie the grandaughter is a size 8....(oh i wish i was.).anyway they took it to a seamstress all the way York..who restored old garments and stiched and stiched the few holes got rid of the moth ball smell...and although still very much the style except for a lower neckline..its being worn on Wednesday in France....so back to my egg..the colours aparently matched this lace on the said wedding dress..and i was asked if i had any left which i had..and could i make a very femine lacey vintage themed card..we were going to use one of original picci's but as it was very delicate( and didnt fancy using it because of the sentimentality attached to it i came up with a alternitive picci from http://dezinaworld.blogspot.co.uk/ ladies in Lace..which she liked and the card was born..phew what a long post hope you havent fallen asleep.....it has been delivered..she is over the moon have left the inside very plain as her daughter delves in Calligraphy....so sassy walked off merrily with payment firmly in her little hand .....and the card is being taken to the wedding in its box,,, by car..by ferry..by car..to destination in Bordeaux ...But talk about short notice was up till late Thursday night to finish...but it will be on its way on Tuseday for the vintage themed wedding...so wowow!!! i was thrilled to be asked and thrilled she loved it....just on last note..many huge thanks to all my new followers hope you visit now and again and for all the lovely comments..its such a boost...sassy hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
