    Smile I made cosmetic bags for the wedding party

    My nephew is being married on January 19 and his bride asked me to make cosmetic bags for her attendants- all 9 of them! After many prototypes, I was finally happy with a zippered bag. They are made from different combinations of white, black and pink silk. Each one is different and has a sparkly button on the side. I hope she likes them. I really hope we don't have snow that day, I'm still not sure why you would choose to be married in Toronto in the middle of January but, oh well, just hope for a nice sunny day!

    Nicely done and a special treat for her attendants!
    Now aren't you making some for the guys too? (kidding!)

    Weddings in the depth of our winter usually mean that they are heading south for the honeymoon!
    (or they're farmers and can't get away in the summer!)

    Love will keep them warm ... even if we have a Big Chill !!!

    They look great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Beautiful bags.They will love them and I hope you are pleasantly surprised with their enthusiasm! We married on Dec. 19 in northwestern PA and it RAINED! That was 42 years ago. I was student teaching, and he had to use his vacation time or lose it, so it made sense then, but we hardly ever have a real anniversary celebration. His niece was married on New Year's Eve!

    Lovely bags ! Maybe they should have picked this upcoming week end (Jan. 12th) since they are predicting temps. of +12 & maybe even +15 degrees celsius (this is about +60 degrees in Farenheit) which is way above normal for this time of year in Toronto.

    I love the bags. I laughed at your comment about the wedding in January. A dear friend was married in Toronto in April 55 years ago and she had to be carried into the church because of the snow--feet of it everywhere.
