married 45 years ago---today!



It was a rainy day in PA--got married, had a tiny wedding--small meal at a hometown restaurant and left for CA in the same day! I can't believe it's been that long--well, some days, I can! ;>)

I was reading the etsy forums today and on cccoe, oceanavesilks has started a flickr discussion groups, concerning blogs---which reminded me---It's been a while since I posted!

I posted in the flickr about 'Artful Blogging'--a relatively new magazine put out by Stampington/Somerset Studio---if you are able to see it or purchase it--do---beautiful pictures and bits of blog posts---something to strive for!

I do have a new item that I haven't listed yet---maybe tonight---I've been working on it for a while, waiting for the mod-podge to dry - recoating it, etc,etc,etc!

So here it is---haven't come up with a name for it yet--it's an old cigarbox covered with bits of pages from a vintage boy's model making catalogue and instructions sheets, the removable lid is topped with a vintage toy railroad handcar, as the handle, lined with scrapbook paper and painted red wooden 'feet'.

see you after our anniversary dinner---ClaimJumpers, with the whole famdamily!

Congratulations! Wow! How time flies, eh? I can't imagine leaving PA on your wedding day and going of to sunny CA. It must have been a real fresh start!

My darling hubby & I followed a similar pattern by moving to the great white north after we had honeymooned there.

Who says you can't live in Disnyland??

Congrats to you both!

Wow! 45 years! That is a long time in this day and age. I did manage to get to 20 years with my first marriage. Hopefully this one will be longer (14 now).

Cute box.
