We are celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary this month and while going through our old wedding photos I realized I have a few things to post here  Smiley

This is my garter.  DH was in the Marine Corps so I (with the help of a family friend/sewing genius) made this from Red Velvet and Gold lace (Marine Corps colors) and I used a spare button from the Marine Corps dress blues (uniform).  I love it so much and I have it hanging on the corner of a picture frame in our bedroom now.

Here it is on my chubby little leg

That looks like a perfectly proportioned leg Cheesy, The garter is lovely and it must be great having something like that hanging up to reming you of your special day.

I'm making mine too and I plan to have a skull and crossbones on it. No real meaning except I love them Tongue

And after posting all that I just realised this is Murbeck's post, lol. HI Murbeck *waves*.

Oh dear, it's September 27! And of course I still don't have all my paperwork to put in my tax return... which I need to help pay for the wedding... and I keep putting my other projects off too...

Oh my! lol, I will get there eventually. As long as the celebrant is paid for that's all that matters!

I LOVE it! I'm the mom of TWO Marines, and my middle Marine & his wife are having their big (unofficial) wedding as soon as he gets back from Iraq. I'm going to send this page link to my DIL. THANKS so much for sharing!

Great job! OOH-RAH!

Semper Fi and thanks. LOL I sure am proud. A bit too "moto", but hey, it's all good *snort*.

This is my first day onboard here, and I'm hoping to learn a lot from y'all. Are there any times/days that are more active here than others? It seems pretty quiet right now.
