Rustic Memorial Wedding Display

I fell in love today. With this rustic memorial wedding display. It seems simple enough to make - with weathered wood, a small black chalkboard, some twine and mini clothespins. We live in a time where our extended families aren't scattered close together like chocolate chips in a freshly baked Toll House cookie. But it wasn't always this way. My husband's grandparents had a large, three story house on Orleans Street in Lowell, Massachusetts. Even after the youngest girl was proudly sent off to nursing school, the children (now married) returned to live with their parents and an odd assortment of very old aunts they barely knew. That intimacy - of loving and being loved - on a daily basis by aunts and uncles, cousins and grandparents may be lost to some of us today. Many are gone before we have a chance to say goodbye. Keep your sweet memories alive with a thoughtful "Until we meet again" memorial photo display.
