Belating Wedding Loot Bonanza

Finally, six years after we said our "I Do's" much of our wedding loot has found its REAL home. You see, our china, crystal, silverware, and God only knows what else had been in storage at Mark's parent's basement for years. We didn't have room for 12 place settings at the townhome. Then, with the arrival of Marly and Dean, even those possessions I loved (like two Waterford Crystal bowls) got exiled to the basement to clear more space in our cramped quarters.

Saturday Mark cruised up to Lindstrom to clear a few more tubs from his parents house. Here is what we discovered!!! It was like gift opening all over again!

Look at that! Brand new bakeware, china with every serving piece, Lenox silverware, crystal, and more!

Ohhh... those white fizz dott serving platters from Crate and Barrel (near the back). We were wondering if we would still love them!

Umm - Do you think three brand new cake pans is enough for someone who doesn't bake?

Marly found a true prize! One of my old barbies, along with doll clothes, and a dolly baby blanket my mom had made. Next to her feet is the box of Melberg/Nelson family silver.

Perfect! This stained glass hanging was a wedding gift made by my Aunt Bonnie (okay... she is actually my Dad's cousin). It is a replica of the stained glass she made for our windows at our house on the farm. Mark and I are simply delighted with this nearly fogotten treasure. It looks outstanding in our blue kitchen. We absolutely love it (again)!

My continued apologies to my Aunt Carol. We STILL have random items in storage in two of her sheds!!!

What a true delight for you. We can use your good dishes when we bring a pizza.
