Odds and Ends (Photos)



The lace on the handle of this bouquet was on the grandmother's dress of the bride for the wedding tomorrow. What an incredible piece of history for this bride to carry.




Mel's bouquet looks good enough to eat! It looks like three flavors of sherbet with a dollop of whipped cream!








My roses - 2010.














The moss roses shown growing here are in the backyard of an abandoned home near where I work. I like to imagine the loving hands that planted them many years ago, and wonder where she is now.







This is the wedding cake from the Iranian wedding last weekend. Donna of Sweet Memories is responsible for this intricate icing! Click to enlarge - the view is worth it!

Ooooo.. pretty bouquet! I love the lace on the handle. Back when I got married the wrapped handle wasn't popular yet, but I think it's a wonderful look.

Each and everyone of these photos is delightful. I just planted three teeny tiny moss rose plants that I managed to grow from seeds..

That icing is miraculous! However long did it take her? And she must have the steadiest of hands to do that! Fantastic!

And a lovely 'sherbet' arrangement of roses! Very delicat1e

What a neat idea to use the dress to carry the bouquet, retaining a piece of history.

Have you considered digging up some of the moss roses and bringing them home for yourself?

I love the idea of the lace of her grandmother's dress. Something old and also a transmission of love

Odds and ends of a lot of hard work and a lot of creativity.

I am SO impressed by that cake.
How did they stand to cut into it??

The mid-east culture has always come up with ornate and intricate patterns on their buildings, but this cake 'takes the cake.' I can't begin to think of the hours and the steady hand it took to decorate it. It's a work of art and should be fossilized instead of eaten. I'm glad photography preserved the image for the bride.

That icing was amazing. It would be criminal to deface that by eating it.

What an unusual and gorgeous cake. I loved that lace from the grandma on the bride's bouquet, too.
