I remember my grandmother telling me that it is lucky for brides to have “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe”. Patti has cleverly used this as her photo challenge for this week. Having just returned from a hiking event this morning, I’m too tuckered out to do a scavenger hike with my camera this afternoon. So, I’m putting my feet up and “visiting” my archives. I may even include an actual bride on this one!
Something old…at my daughter Susan’s wedding, that would be her grandmother. No offense, just pride in that. And she’s wearing blue!
Something new…obviously, brides are new wives. Here are a couple: my daughter and my daughter-in-law.
I borrowed the mannequins at David’s Bridal for a close up. My daughter’s wedding party borrowed the dance from Rocky Horror Picture Show. My brother borrowed his bride’s bouquet.
Something blue…decorations that my daughter-in-law made…
… and my son’s eyes.
And since silver sixpences are hard to come by, we’ll just go with some sparkly silver stuff that I’ve photographed around wedding time.
Now, if I could just get invited to bring my camera to two more wedding celebrations…(hint, hint).
What a fabulous post, Priscilla! I love your choices for old, new, borrowed, and blue. Your improvised “silver” is a great choice. It makes me smile to see all these happy faces celebrating a wonderful event.
Thanks for hosting, Patti, and for your compliments! Seems I tend to travel into my heart more than to places overseas. But I love to see where others have been!
Yes, I agree. I love to see where others have been, too. Very inspiring. Thanks for your kind words.
LOL for your not-so-subtle hint Priscilla! And a clever, fun response to the challenge
Thanks, Tina. One of these daughters is already married, just hasn’t had the ceremony inviting others. Still looking for that photo op!
Wonderful post Priscilla.
Love your take on – always happy smiling people here! And o my, your son has got a handsome beard there…Hopefully your hint did not go unheard either!
Thanks, Ann-Christine. I do love pictures of my favorite happy, smiling people. 🙂
