This was a welcome home greeting gift to his family. To our Pastor Smith, on the 38th anniversary of his pastorate, from the appreciative and loving members of the First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro, North Carolina.

Grissom , on West Market, last night, the occasion being the celebration of the fifteenth anniversary of their marriage - their crystal wedding. Out of invitations issued, were present, showing the esteem in which these good people are held. Inclement as was the evening weather , this large crowd gathered to pay their respects, to wish the couple God speed in their future voyage through life. The congratulations and words of esteem were many.
Grissom wore a black brocaded satin, ordered especially for the occasion from Paris, trimmed in jet passementrie and accordion plaited chiffon. In her hand she held a handkerchief of real lace which she carried to the bridal altar with her fifteen years ago, while the trimmings of the front of the dress, also of real lace, were the same used on this memorable occasion.
Her little daughter wore a dress of pink nuns' veiling, and looked charming. Following the congratulations showered upon the party, Miss Alta Cozart, of Greensboro Female College faculty, read an original poem, written by Mrs. The decorations were superb. Excellant taste abounded everywhere. The hall was decorated in palms and ferns; the parlor entirely of uncut flowers; the dining room in white and yellow chrysanthemums; and the library, in which sat the Brockmann's Orchestra, in red.
The eye on entering the house, first rested on fifteen lighted candles, representing the number of years of Rev. Grissom's married life. The menu was elaborate in every detail, of the substantial as well as the delicate order. The presents were numerous - to be exact, there were in all - and they were not of the ordinary kind, but of fine quality, useful as well as decorative. The Grissoms have been residents of Greensboro only a few years, and have made many friends - lasting, life long friendships - as last night's occasion plainly told.
The guests departed, wishing the "bridal couple" the greatest joy and a long life. Philip B.

Little May-Blossom Little May-Blossom, bright as the morn, When Aurora is painting the silvery dawn, Sweet as the flowers, that bloom in the spring, Gay as the lark, on his sun-tinted wing, With eyes of soft azure and ringlets of gold "A wee, dimpled darling," today, two years old. The roses may gleam in their diamonds of dew And violets smile in their heavenly hue The birds of the wood, in their musical lays May echo the streamlets in accents of praise, But fairer than these on this 19th of May Is dear little Mary, just two years today.

The May Queen. Two years had passed! About Researching to find information about this Mary. To Jennie Wilson. May sunshine linger round thy way, And life be one glad holiday, Where flowers shall bloom and gay birds sing And joy shall never droop her wing, Where Love shall tune the Harp of Time, Whose golden strings make joy sublime, So mayest thou stand at even-tide, A gentle, loving, happy bride. Yours Always, E. Hundley Greensboro, North Carolina March 23, Silver Wedding Bells. Silver Wedding Bells Oh, sweet and fair and all aglow, With the silvery radiance of long ago, Are these autumn days, with their skies serene, And the earth a picture in amber and green; While nature makes a pause in the hush of noon With a lapse of waves in a rhythmic tune, And over all comes the musical swell, The beating pulse of a silver bell.
Sweet silver bells, so soft and clear, What a tale you tell to the listening ear — The wonderful story that never grows old, Of wonderful love that shall never grow cold; The fountains flash up their silvery rain, As the nightingales join in a glad refrain, And chant on the air, whence the dewdrops fell, While they echo the song of the silver bell. Hundley 19 Jul About Inscribed to Mr. A Pastor's Anniversary. Thirty Years Oh! Now thirty years, down History's tide In life of this church, calmly, side by side Pastor and people have floated on Loving and loved in the days that are gone As the billows of Time have borne them away From the star-lit dawn, to the golden day.
And now we stand by the river's brim Where the waves are singing a festival hymn - A solemn hymn, for the glorified years That shine through the past of smiles and tears Like a rainbow of Peace, in the flooded skies, Rich with the tints of Heavenly dyes. A little "isle" in this stream is found, Where blossoms and buds are scattered around; Where we rest today 'neath the waving trees And breathe in the blessings of fragrance and breeze.
A Welcome Home. Old Rome, amid her ruins grand May stay the wandering feet, And smile as fair as native land, But oh! Not half as sweet. No sunny plain, nor cloud-capped spire No golden-glittering dome Can touch our hearts, with half the joy That lights up home, sweet home. We bring thee greetings, on this day — Praying thy life may prove With wife and babes and sheltering home A perfect life of love.
This is so beautiful, great design. That's one for the memory banks. Michelle x. Hi Dawn, wow beautiful wedding card, love the fab birdcage and colour combo.

Stunning xx. Oh wow! This is absolutely stunning, very shabby chic and so pretty and elegant, love those flowers Lindsay xx. Saturday, March 24, Wedding Bells. What a beautiful day just right for a spring wedding so here is my first wedding card of this year. I wanted to make something a little different and noticed that birdcages seem to feature as wedding centrepieces or decorations on some of the websites for weddings I have looked at. I think my inspiration came from HERE.
I tried to stick with neutral colours for the card. All the backing papers are from Pink Petticoat. The bird cage has been stamped in silver embossing powder which is from Papermania Chatsworth House collection and the butterfly is from Papermania Summer Bloom collection.
All three stamp sets I love as they seem to cover most occasions. Barbara March 24, at AM. Anonymous March 24, at AM.
