Treasury Tuesday

maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday, Wedding Crochet-03This past Saturday – October 17, 2015 – was our 35th Wedding Anniversary ……
I felt like saying “thir-ty-fi-ve-years!!” out loud all day – it’s a big number, really.
And, every time I did say “thir-ty-fi-ve-years!!” a different memory from those years surfaced from my 55-year old brain……..
maRRose - CCC - Mar&Lex 35 yearsIn the morning we had coffee and cake with our extended family; my parents, 81 and 84 years old celebrating with us being very special.
After that Lex and I left for an overnight stay in a lovely boutique hotel in Noordwijk – “Villa De Duinen” – and truly enjoyed our short, but sweet little trip.
Sunday night we had a festive “rijsttafel”-dinner with our kids at our favorite Indonesian restaurant of 35 years, “Djago”, in Amsterdam.
If it’s up to us, we’d love to spend at least another 35 years together…….

This is a kind of lengthy introduction as to why this week’s “Treasury Tuesday”‘s theme is “wedding crochet” – I sure hope you’ll like my latest collection as much as I do – pun intended ;).

What’s your favorite? Mine are these two:
