Silver Anniversary

Hi friends! Wow. I can take a break I think.

On the 3rd was Brian and my 25th wedding anniversary. On Saturday we had our celebration. We had a joint party with my mom and her husband, as they will also be married next month for 25 years this year. The party was wonderful. We rented a hall in the town I grew up in. The one my mom and most of my family still lives in. We had family and friends, a meal and a good time.

I had on display this:
Forever Be My Always by Emma Congdon
 Do you like the frame Brian and I picked out together? We went to Hobby Lobby to have it done.

And after I gave this to Mom and Jim, we displayed this also:
They loved it and were very appreciative I am happy to announce.😊

I have been stitching just a little on AotH, Moonlight Visitor. I am sorry, I do not have a picture for you today.

I won a giveaway from our friend DJ. This is a super chart. It will make great gifts for friends.😉Sorry DJ, I did not remember to take a picture of the chart AGAIN and I am not putting off posting about this gift from you another day! So I borrowed the picture from your blog.😉

That's it for today for me my friends. Break is over! Back to packing! Oh yes, I must tell you all. The moving date is NOT the 13th, this Friday. It is the 27th. That truly was the original date. The buyer is a first time buyer and also an underwriter at a bank. So she THOUGHT she could move it up to the 13th and was pushing for it, but no, it will be the 27th. That is okay. We have the apartment cleaned and over half painted. Think pink my friends! (Very, very pale pink) Woo hoo! Yes, my husband loves me.💕

Take good care of yourselves. There is only one you!! And I am so glad YOU came by.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Silver! The perfect frame of course. Congratulations to you both and also to your mom and husband. Hope all the work involved with preparing to move hasn't caused any flare-ups.

Barb said...

The frame is so perfect. I'm glad your celebration was memorable. Congratulations to both you and your DH and your mom and her husband.

Angela Tucker said...

The silver frame is perfect. How nice to have a big celebration...and twice as much to celebrate! Next month will be 37 years for hubby and I. And they said it would never last. LOL

So if I read that right, you have two extra weeks? Sweet!! Now you can get a few more "pink" rooms painted and ready to go! LOL

Remember to take care of yourself, sweetie. You are the only YOU!

RJ said...

Glad the party was such a huge success, Vickie. Your stitches were perfectly framed and look amazing. Love them both.

Good luck with the move as it is getting real close.

Can you tell us DJ's blog for us newbies? That is a wonderful chart ... you will really enjoy stitching it. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Congratulations to both couples! Those are lovely stitches you made to celebrate. I'm sure the silver frame will look great on those pale pink walls!

Congrats to you and your family.
Loved both of the stitching and frames they looked wonderful.
Good luck with the move and everything.
Enjoy your week and yes pink sounds lovely .

Brigitte said...

So great to read that you had a wonderful anniversary celebration. And a double celebration, how cool. I love both anniversary pieces that you stitched, and the frames you chose are just awesome. Everyone must have been so happy.
Good that the move will be nearer to the end of the month. That leaves you more time for the painting and then for moving everything there. Will you show pictures once the painting is finished?

Manuela said...

Two wonderful stitches for the anniversarys. Both frame are great.
Good luck with your move.
Hugs, Manuela

Maggie said...

Congratulations on the double wedding anniversary celebration, the stitched pieces are wonderful, a great memento.

Good luck with the move, we moved 3 and a half years ago and I know just how stressful it can be!

Stasi said...

So happy the anniversary celebration went well. The silver frames are perfect for each piece and I'm sure there were lots of oohs and aahs!
I hope the next three weeks go smoothly and you are enjoying your new home before you know it!

Mary said...

Vicki, Congrats to both you and your Mom on your Silver anniversaries. Both the stitches are lovely and you chose the perfect frames.

A little more time for packing and painting is a good thing. Less stress in rushing. Can't wait to see your pretty pink walls!

Do you have a link for DJ? Such a nice stitch that you won. Mary

Sending hugs and love as well!

Carol said...

Sounds like a wonderful celebration of your silver anniversary, Vickie--for both you and your mom :) Both pieces are so lovely and how wonderful to have it so well received--you just never know with stitching gifts, do you? I'm sure your mom knows just how long it takes to make all of those little x's :)

And now on to your move--wow! You sure have a lot going on this month. I'm sure you'll be anxious to get moved, settled and surrounded by your pale pink walls :) Wishing you the best of luck!

Lovely anniversary gifts Vickie.

rosey175 said...

Happy Anniversary to you two (and mom too!)~ Of course your silver frame is perfect. I'm not sure whether to be happy your date isn't the 13th! On one hand, it'd be over, on the other... panicpacking. It will give you that much more time to paint the whole apartment pink. :D

woolwoman said...

glad you had a great time at your anniversary party. 25 years is a milestone. Your anniversary piece looks great and your folks 25th too. Hope the move goes well. Mel

Sally said...

Perfect stitching for a very special anniversary, I'm so glad you all had a wonderful time!
Sweet chart from DJ. I certainly agree with that statement, especially after yesterday's conversation with my mother. 😖
