June MMP Friday Theme: "Something Old, Something New"!!

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.....all things a bride wants as she walks down the aisle! Treasures usually bestowed on her as gifts
by close friends and family in keeping with wedding tradition!

Grandmother's tiny, well-read Bible; a lovely new piece of jewelry as a gift from her groom; her mother's lacy handkerchief, carried in her own wedding long ago; and the blue garter worn beneath her gown will assure that the bride will begin her marriage traditionally on the "right foot"!

In the current time, we honor the traditions of the past with the way we decorate our homes. Family treasures make our homes warm and cozy. A family quilt worn with love, the tablecloth Mom or Grandma used beneath the plates we now collect to decorate our walls; shining silver; lovely pillows made from vintage needlework; and, yes, even the jewelry from the past that have begun to show up on our necks, wrists and fingers are all treasures whose worth have nothing to do with their monetary value!!

The boutiques at Make Mine Pink have beautiful items to bring the past alive and warm the decor of your homes and jewelry boxes. Visit Grandma G's and the other MMP boutiques and find a meaningful treasure for yourself!
Honor tradition and keep the past alive in your home!!

See you Friday!

Hi Georgia!

Just had to come over and say hello and thank you for the sweet comments. You're a sweetie. Hope you are doing well and enjoying the summer. I love it because my kids are off from school and love spending time with them even if they drive me nuts at You still love them to pieces. ;-D
Have a great week!
