Wedding -Six Pence

Today’s Wedding Superstition is the Coin Tradition. 


Coin Tradition in weddings –

  • In Great Britain, the well-known tradition of the bride wearing ‘something old, something new,’ originally stems from the rhyme, ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.’ A silver sixpence in the bride’s shoe is a traditional good luck wedding gesture and customarily, it is the father of the bride who places the sixpence as a symbol of him wishing her prosperity, love and happiness in her marriage.
  • Sweden has its own variation of this tradition; before a wedding, the bride’s mother gives her a gold coin to put in her right shoe and the bride’s father gives her a silver coin to put in her left shoe. The coins represent their wish that she will never be without.

The Joyful Soul Creates

I feel like I have wedding on the brain at the moment! I spent a large chunk of yesterday working on some thank you cards that will be a wedding present. I made a wedding card today, and have plans for another one tomorrow. And a week today I’ll be in England in readiness for a wedding that weekend. I suppose it is wedding season, so we can put it down to that. I think four or five of my Facebook friends (people I went to school with) have got married this past fortnight, and at least that many more weddings have appeared on my feed from friends-of-friends’ weddings. It was making me think about how everyone is getting married and I’m barely managing to adult, but then I remembered I’m already married and have been for about four years, so I can’t really complain..! 😉

Okay enough of that…

Wedding Superstitions – Something Blue

Today is Wedding day #26 – Yes I have been posting wedding facts , tips , links and doodles for 26 days. Only 4 more days of June Weddings -hope you had fun and maybe learned something new. 

Something Old,New, Borrowed and Blue 

Martha Stewart Weddings

We’ve all heard this rhyme used when someone gets married, but what does it mean? Wearing “something old” represents the bride’s past, while the “something new” symbolizes the couple’s happy future. The bride is supposed to get her “something borrowed” from someone who is happily married in the hope that some of that person’s good fortune rubs off on her. “Something blue” denotes fidelity and love.

Many brides like Me -uses a blue garter as part of our attire






Tossing the wedding garter is an old time held tradition. It is said that in the days gone past, the bride and groom had to show proof of their wedding consummation. In order for it to be proven, it was common tradition to have people like family and friends come into the room with the couple

Vacation – Yes or No?

Happy Monday !

It’s a hot and humid day in Louisiana . Normal weather for us and will only get hotter.

Makes me want to go on a Vacation and get away from it all.  My family have never been big on vacation but I remember going with my grandparents on big adventures- mountains, amusement parks  and famous places. They loved to travel and we would all go on weeks long car trips -those were the days  .  Lisa

The horseshoe is probably one of the most well-known good luck symbols of the Western world.

The horseshoe has a long history of being a protective symbol.

The symbol is quite common in Egyptian iconography. It is also known in Islamic art.

The horseshoe is a very auspicious symbol, a charm used to protect against any form of evil and bring good luck.     Lisa

Cousin’s Day

Happy Saturday !

I’am on my way to Cousins Day ! Something my family started last year  -for all of the first female cousins -good food and gossip.  Will share more later. Lisa



A cousin is a relative with whom a person shares one or more common ancestors. In the general sense,cousins are two or more generations away from any common ancestor, thus distinguishing a cousin from an ancestor, descendant, sibling, aunt, uncle, niece, or nephew.

Cupids arrow – Cupid is winged, allegedly, because lovers are flighty and likely to change their minds, and boyish because love is irrational. His symbols are the arrow and torch, “because love wounds and inflames the heart.”

Flamingo Day Cards

Today’s cards are made using this fun paper from Authentique. I got this set in the mail as part of my monthly kits.

Today theme is flamingos 

That pink bird we all love and official bird of the Bahamas.  Lisa 

Happy Pink Flamingo Day !

June 23rd – Happy Pink Flamingo Day ! 


Perhaps not shockingly, the pink flamingo lawn ornament was invented in the same decade that polyester pants, pink washing machines, vinyl wallpaper, and Naugahyde lounge chairs were cool. Featherstone, a sculptor, was hired by Leominster, Mass.-based Union Products to make three-dimensional lawn ornaments. He created the first pink flamingo lawn ornament, his second assignment, in 1957. –
