Wedding Groom and Bride

I still have the cake topper from my wedding.
It is getting yellow and I wouldn't know how to clean it
but then it wouldn't be an original.
The little cups and mugs are from the Soviet Union
They are tiny but expensive for way back when.
They keep toasting this Bride and Groom,
so they stay forever happy and in love.
So far so good.:)
Selangor makes fine Pewter items.
These are napkin holders.
The cherry metal shot glasses came from the then Soviet Union
when Vodka was quite popular.


Who needs to go up north when you can sit and watch this happen in your own back yard.
Too bad it's all gone now and just plain ol green.

Isn't it interesting how much certain relics of our past -- both distant and recent -- mean to us? Loved your photos! Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas for you and your family!

Kathleen I keep everything lol
Some people keep the top portion of the cake but I found this to be a bit too much even for me. lol

My mom doesn't even have her old wedding dress from her first marriage. She didn't have a traditional wedding the second time (with my dad) since they went through a court to get married.

A Lady's Life said...

Adam I still have my wedding dress as well.

I guess the experience itself is what's most important. Our wedding ceremony is beautiful so I wouldn't have liked to miss it even if I did it after a court signing.
I think the ceremony was more important to me than the party afterward. But everyone is different.
People today marry under water and sky diving,and all sorts of other ways. lol

Stopping by to wish you a wonderful Christmas and a wonderful Holidays with your loved ones. Thank you for all your lovely comments and visits in the past year.:))

Very appropriate comments to your young admirer Adam. I agree with your sentiments.

I still think of Russia as being part of the Soviet Union. For me the Soviet Union refers to a culture and a time period of history as well as a geographic region.

I have traveled to Russia and that part of the world but I would like to do so.

One of my favorite books is Doctor Zhivago. I have never seen the movie (think there is more than one) as I enjoy the book so much.

Take care and have a very nice Christmas.

Russell - My husband used to travel a lot and I took up the russian language in hopes of becoming a translator as I was in International relations at the time.
So he was the one who visited The then Soviet Union.
All the Russian stories are fabulous! Pushkin, Leo Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky
are my favorites. War and Peace, Dr Zhivago with Julie Christie & Omar Sharif.Anna Karenina, Anastasia,Brothers Karamazov
The First Circle by Solzhenytsyn.
Russian Literature is full of soul, very rich in many heartfelt, heart breaking stories and courage about both the rich, the poor and the God fearing. They ran into stories from France like Les Miserables also following along the same lines.I loved reading. Give me a good book and I will always be happy.
