These gifts say, "I was thinking of you." These gifts are from the heart & speak to my heart. They could be extravagant or picked up from a dumpster.
My lil' sis knows me well. She knows my heart. She knows I am a lace & pearl romantic, and have a wedding shrine in my bedroom. She knows I love wedding gowns of all shapes & sizes, and have a small collection of them.
My sweet sister happened across two and brought them down for me over Christmas.
the lace -- the ribbon -- the chiffon -- the horse-hair braid in the hems...
She also knew that if I didn't want the gowns themselves, I'd certainly find a way to use the fabrics.
Thank you, Beverly!
