This ring bearer pillow is one of my personal favorites. Not only was it the first wedding postcard in my collection but I also love the sentiment it expresses. " As you go journeying down the years, May time forget to deal you tears. May you be ever glad and gay, as on your happy wedding day."
The original postcard was postmarked in 1912 and the message on the back is very faint but still legible. It says, "Dear friends, Let me wish you many more happy years. Always look glad, but not sad. " It looks as if the postcard was accidentally postmarked on the front too. We do not retouch any of our postcard images as we love the authenticity a few imperfections give them.
The body of the pillow is made from Belgian linen and is embellished with pieces of a vintage table runner as well as beaded lace appliques and tulle from an old wedding dress that we have repurposed. Occasionally we come across vintage wedding dresses that are beyond repair. By repurposing them we hope that they will impart their wedding magic to a new item!
The ring bearer pillow measures 10 inches square and is filled with a down like poly cluster fill before being hand sewn closed.
Please note: All of the postcards from our collection are scanned, printed on fabric and then sewn onto the linen pillows. (You will not receive the actual postcard)
The pillow will ship within 2-3 days.
