Before I start the party, I would appreciate if you guys would say a prayer for the families who have been affected by the storms. North Alabama has been slammed twice today. In fact, there is a rare “100 % chance of a tornado within 50 miles of you” if you are in the Northern part of our state. This is really scary. Thankfully, so far we have gotten some strong wind gusts, but nothing major. I think it is supposed to be worse here tonight.
There has been a lot of media coverage on Prince William’s and Kate’s Royal Wedding during the last week. I thought it would be fun to reminisce about our wedding for Treasure Hunt Thursday #4.

Not a Royal Affair, just a small, simple wedding
My wedding dress had been hanging under plastic since our wedding in 1974.
28 years later…
We had it professionally cleaned and boxed!!!
I have to admit, I think it is a little scary looking!
There is a clear plastic body under the top of the dress.
My dress wasn’t formal, but the lace is stunning –
and y’all know how I love fine lace.
Sister #4 made a simple band of flowers for my hair
Alex styled it on my pretty French bust
Close up of the flowers – they almost look like linen
Alex photographed my wedding rings in a
Royally adorable miniature chair fit for a Queen
That’s as close to a Royal Wedding as I can get!

Here are some amazing treasures from last weeks
Treasure Hunt Thursday
Christie @ Carters Cottage found these
beautiful French pieces on Craigslist.
Some people have all the luck!!!
Gypsea Nurse introduced us to Isamat.
She could have come from a real treasure hunt.
She has a lovely friend named Mithy
Betsy @ My Salvaged Treasures
shared lots of her beautiful treasures.
I could go shopping at her house!!!
This stunning armoire resides in
Courtney’s French Country Cottage
It would be right at home at the Royal Palace!
