CHOCOLATE GIVES YOU WINGS!

Yes, thats right...forget about the drink advert! A woman knows its really chocolate hahahahaha. I had a gorgeous little octagonal box which I decorated for the Bubbly Scrumptious Blog.

Sadly...or not hehe....there were a few tears while I made this one. The pretty pearl beading came off my wedding dress from way back in 1984. My daughter tried it on and said it was old fashioned (hahaha) and I didn't want anyone else to wear it so it is no more now! But I do have some lovely pictures and memories of a fantastic day.

As I was unpicking it I remembered how long it took me to tack it on before covering the tape with ribbon. But the dress is no more now and I am left with about a mile of these pearls and the lace as well!!!!



If you would like to see how I made this then take a look -here- . Oh and the chocolates are from Thorntons, a pressie from my hubby beacause I was feeling under the weather....ahhhh bless him! Thank you for taking a looksee. Happy crafting XXXX

Karen, so interesting about your wedding dress. I see the ballroom gowns that now serve as wedding dresses and feel sadness and a little disgust. The old-fashioned dresses were really special. You are very brave to pick it apart. The box is so gorgeous.

Awww, what a shame she couldn't have had it remodelled! Nice that you're finding a use for the various bits and pieces from the dress and that you enjoyed some nice memories while you took it apart! Off to BS now!

Shame the chocs have all gone though!
