If you are anything like me you have your wedding dress stashed somewhere around your house. Maybe it is in a box in the attic or stored in a spare closet like mine.
I was on the hunt for a beaded, white Christmas tree skirt. The ones at the department stores were a fortune and even $50 or more at TJ Maxx and Homegoods. That is not a bad price, but more than I wanted to spend.
Then it dawned on me that I had the perfect thing at home. The train on my wedding dress was completely detachable. It was white satin, beaded and round. Perfect!
If your train does not detach, you could always cut apart your dress. Insert gasps here! Are you ever going to wear your dress again? Do you have daughters that would actually want to wear it? I have boys, so that isn't even a consideration. Why not make into a new and useful family heirloom.
Happy Sunday! We made a Family Winter Fun list last week. It's a good way to ensure the Christmas season is not soley based on shopping and hustle and bustle. We crossed one item off the list last night by visiting Hillridge Farms Festival of Lights.
I had the most wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and hope you did too! We did tons of decorating! Handsome Hubby put the lights on the front of the house while I decorated inside and on the back porch.
We still need a rug for the patio, snowflake lights, pillows and more, but it is starting to come together. I am hoping to wrap it up this weekend for a post on Monday.
