Tuesdays Treasures

Do you have a cupboard full of ornaments and trophies, and books and photographs, and souvenirs from holidays? In other words a cupboard full of Memories....Well I was searching through my cupboard the other day and came across this.....
This was the centerpiece of our Wedding Cake. I'd forgotten all about it and I haven't taken it out of the cupboard in a very long time. This July it will be 25 years since we were married.
The centerpiece is a beautiful, delicately hand-made glass bird bath. It has two glass doves, one on each side facing two wedding rings tied together with ribbon right in the very center. Around the base are pale pink flowers, a lucky horseshoe and a small butterfly.
It's very old fashioned (now) but I just love it. I'm so glad I kept it and put it away somewhere safe. I thought it was the perfect thing to show today in Melody's Tuesdays Treasures, but I will have to get it out again this July for our 25th Anniversary. Maybe I should make a Celebration Cake and put it on top?
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Hello Teresa,

Just beautiful. I have to confess we still have one of our cakes, it still looks the same. I really should do something with it, but what.
Happy days.

We had our 25th last november, and when we got married we had a glass ornament but we had a horse and carriage with a little half bride and groom. Very daggy now! Ours broke unfortunately.
Yours is still elegant and lovely.

Definitely re-use it for your silver wedding anniversary. Very special!

What a gorgeous cake ornament - they don't make them like that anymore, it is exquisite and wonderful that you have kept it so long. It definitely deserves another cake, an anniversary cake!!!
