a silver holloware wedding anniversary

16 years of marriage should be marked by gifts of silver Holloware apparently! Who knew? I missed that memo. I didn’t even know what holloware was until 5 minutes ago (sugar bowls, creamers, coffee pots, teapots, soup tureens, hot food covers, water jugs, platters and butter dishes for the curious among you).

Last year I wrote of not needing gifts and cards and being oh so thankful for our sweet baby boy. This year we did exchange cards and are oh so thankful for our fiesty sweet toddler who’s as excited about his sleepover at Nana and Grandads as we are about going to cinema!

Not doing too badly to have spent half our life together and still be smiling!

    It’s 16 years for us too (31 Aug) – I’d never heard of silver hollowware before either! Congratulations!

#onefromthearchives in the days when I had time to experiment with preserve recipes and create edible gifts
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #chutneyaddict #allotmentgardening #foragersdelight #preservemaking So totally stoked to receive my #thisisbritainphotobook this morning.  My gut feeling was right - bedtime stories with our Lumie bed bug was the photo chosen by #rankin for inclusion.  Overjoyed to see my beautiful boys in print

I say grew but I actually just forgot about them and they did this all by themselves!
