Oh Caroline. This is so beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. What a sweet memory for a daddy to leave his girls. I'm so sorry for your family's loss.

Sweet, sweet memories.


What a beautiful post about a dad's contribution to his daughter's wedding. I had my dad learn to cross-stitch (mid-80's was all about cross-stitching) so that he could help make the bird seed holders that I wanted.

Just today I was looking at photos of brooch bouquets for my daughter's September wedding. I'm looking forward to your post about this.


Oh Caroline, I'm so sorry for your family's loss. What a beautiful post, and such beautiful weddings too. I am so glad you all have such wonderful memories of him and he was able to do something so wonderful for his daughters that will be remembered forever. Congratulations to your sister too.

Wow... brought tears to my eyes. Sam would have had a good chuckle over this. Makes me smile just thinking about it. Love you sister for such a tribute to our brother-in-law.

Caroline, this is wonderful! I was sitting here crying while reading it.... I will never forget those poms. He was so proud of them, as I was proud of him for coping so well during that hard time.


What a terrific tribute, Caroline, to one of our favorite men and his family! Loved it!

Hi there-

I am sorry to bug you but I am looking for jacquard ribbon that has ducks on it. Not baby shower type duck- more like masculine/mallard type ducks. I don't see any on the website for sale but also can't find it anywhere. I thought I would take a chance and ask just in case you know where I might be able to find a few yards.

Thanks so much!

I'm touched. I'm sorry to hear that one family had to endure so many events and struggles all at once. I hope they are all doing okay and that you are as well. The wedding photos are truly lovely.

Sono molto apprezzato per questo blog. Mi sento fortemente su di esso e l'amore saperne di più su questo argomento. Se possibile, come si guadagna esperienza, ti dispiacerebbe aggiornare il tuo blog con più informazioni? E 'estremamente utile per me.
