Tuesdays Treasures

Today is our 25th Wedding Anniversary! I thought it only fitting that todays Tuesdays Treasures (hosted by Melody ) should be something related.
What better than my (very '80's) Wedding dress. It was nice to get it out and have a good, long look at it again.I'd forgotten all the pearls ... remembered all the lace and how huge the sleeves and skirt were... but forgotten all the gorgeous pearls. As soon as we'd set the date for our Wedding, my Grandmother told me she wanted to buy my dress for me... it was her gift to us and our wedding. Makes it very special to me.
I'd also forgotten how much fabric and lace went into making it... it is quite heavy.Of course Squeaky had to check it out and photo bomb another photo!
So what did we do on our special Anniversary?????
Well we spent the whole day at the Hospital!!! My husband is still having trouble with his leg from his motorbike accident. There is some "foreign" material still in his leg and causing problems.
We did, however, get to spend the day together as he would normally be at work...
And we did have a very nice lunch at the Normanby Hotel, just down the road from the Hospital!!
We still have those Wedding glasses too!
I'm off to Melody's to see who else is playing today and sharing their treasures!
Have a great day,

Congrats. Hope you had a wonderful anniversary & nice lunch at the Normanby Hotel.
Hope the leg heels well. Ask the doctor if bathing in 'biotex' might help remove the 'foreign' material.
