more engraving

I'm attending a franco-german wedding next weekend, two great friends who already seem to have everything and didn't give out any lists... So yesterday I hit up Galeries LaFayette in Caen and managed to catch the end of the sales. I picked up 4 of these little glasses for a great price and then took them home to engrave them. As my friends plan to open a flower shop one day I thought something with flowers or plantes would be nice and came up with this wrap-around ivy pattern with a few little hearts, but nothing too cheesy.

I thought they'd make nice little verrines so I went to another store and picked up little mini... well actually they are sporks... because I couldn't decide if I wanted mini forks or spoons... its funny they remind me of lunches in elementary school except a metal version!

Then as a final touch I added their names and the date to the bottom of the cup. I wanted something that would remind them of their wedding but at the same time something they could use everyday. I hope they do!

Now what am I going to wear to this wedding next weekend?? Humm...

Karina, I love how creative you are with your gifts! And I'm still loving the glass engraving... Enjoy the wedding next weekend! I'm sure you'll find just the right dress in your closet, something you've forgotten you have! That's always what happens to me...
