HAPPY 25TH ANNIVERSARY!

Made this for a very special couple - can't tell you who in case they read this - who are celebrating their Silver Wedding next week. I don't know them very well, but they have suffered such awful tragedy in their life and I wanted to make them something a bit different.

So I've decided to move away from my usual formal style for this occasion and go to the shabby chic that I've developed a real passion for!

I really enjoy making this style, with lots of different textures and a bit of bling - gotta love white and green pearls! - and string!

I hope it conveys the message that I wish them all the happiness in the world and good things for their future.

Thanks for looking xxx
