Bridal Stuff

One week ago Saturday, Lydia's friends came together for her bridal shower. We live in California without any relatives, but you wouldn't know it.

We had 60 sweet friends there!
From her work and mine...

by the way, this is little Zoe with her Mommy, Dawn!

From Jeffs' family...

from our church friends...

and friends that are like family.

Mrs. Ginny Bakan brought a lovely devotion on the making of a home, and her speech was seasoned with scripture, jokes, and gifts to go along with each point, and there were a lot of points! Two baskets full from Ginny! Carrie was playing "Vanna" for her Mom....

We were blessed by the whole day, thank you dear, dear peoples!

Lydia and Stephanie worked hard on this beautiful wreath, and Lydia has some smaller wreaths for table toppers. The flowers on this wreath are some of her felt flowers....

These are fabrics I'm using to make table runners for the big day. I completed 2 for the shower, but I still hope to get 2 or 3 more....

uh, forgive the clean clothes on the folding table...

And, finally a peek at the wedding dress. It has a finished bodice, and this is a picture of the bell sleeves, also attached! Up next, the neckline, then the skirt....

Happy Creativity, whatever it may be!
Love, Pokey
