Some one we know is getting married...and so there was a shower...and so we wanted to give a gift...we love giving gifts! The person getting married lives far away...and it was suggested that she may not want to haul lots of things on the plane home with her. This, I think, was a good suggestion - they probably frown on bride-to-bes getting on the plane laden down with teapots and mixing bowls and cookbooks and the like.
I put my brain to work to come up with a tiny gift that would be useful and easy to take home...
You know the saying:
and a sixpence for her shoe
This could be the something new...well there is the gown...and the veil...and the shoes...well one of the something news then.
Best wishes to our bride and groom....and if you need it I know where you can get a sixpence!
