Vintage Wedding Mosaic

Our one and only daughter is getting married later this year. It's hard for me to believe she is old enough to be doing such a thing. But alas, she is. She will be 25 by the time the wedding takes place. We have been busy planning and making lots of decisions ~ her more than me. Today her future sister-in-law is throwing a bridal shower for her and she is so excited! I wonder if all of this will finally sink in for me as I see her opening gifts for her first home. Remember how back in our day we gingerly removed the ribbons from the packages, being careful not to break any of them because that would be the number of children you would have? Do they still play that silly game at showers or am I dating myself? And surely I must have broken more than one ribbon at my bridal showers. And wasn't that only yesterday? Where does the time go? All of you with little ones sill running around, don't blink because they grow up faster than you think!

Funny you should post this mosaic...
I was in flickr this week typing in the vintage wedding category, too!
I was also looking at vintage wedding cake toppers.
For some reason (wink) I have had weddings on the brain this week.

Funny how they do that! All the stepping stones...mine just got her permit to DRIVE! I know you will have fun helping with the planning. I haven't been to a wedding in years, so not sure what they do! By the way I love the green quilt if I didn't comment before on it!
