47th Wedding Anniversary

My parents would have celebrated 47 years as husband and wife today.

 They met in 1963. My mum was only 19 and my dad a year older.

In 1966 they got married.
A year later my big brother was born 
and in 1973 it was time for me to join the family.

At least they had 43 happy years together
before my dad passed away in 2006,
at the young age of 62...
...way too soon!

  1. Way too soon indeed Pernilla, but your remembering their anniversary is something I'm sure your mom and your dad, wherever he may be, appreciates A LOT! CHEERS!

  2. Love this collection! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love making new blog friends!

  3. Thank you for sharing a sweet anniversary with us. I think it is important to remember those who have passed on special days. I love the soft gleam of the aluminum molds.

  4. Sweet memories and a wonderful tribute. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  5. That is a lovely wedding picture to remember your parents by. My parents reached their 62nd Anniversary before my mom passed away in 2009. Your vintage collections are lovely too. Thanks for stopping by and following along, I'm now following back.

  6. So sweet of you to share memories... beautiful picture of your parents!

  7. What a wonderful wedding picture it sounds like you have lovely memories.
    The vintage items around the picture are great.

  8. Love the wedding picture and your vintage things around the picture! Sorry about losing your father so early!

  9. Love your sweet memories Pernilla. Their picture is beautiful! Thanx so much for sharing your special memory with us at THT!

  10. What a nice tribute. Your dad was way to young, but as you said at least they had 43 years together. My folks made it to 50 and my dad passed later that year. It's wonderful that we have the good memories of our loved ones. I like your mom's wedding dress. They both look great!

  11. Are those your parents on the picture? They look great together. I am sorry about your father has gone way too soon! Love all the cake moulds!


  12. What a great memory, and you have honored them so beautifully.
    I love the mellow tones and homey textures that make this vignette so very beautiful.

  13. Such wonderful memories and yes, it was way too soon! I like the cake moulds.


  14. Wow, way too soon my friend. I thought dad also died too soon and he was a few days shy of 78. My mom would have wanted to celebrate 50 years together, but was not possible. Beautiful couple your parents. Thanks for sharing this lovely tribute.

  15. A wonderful picture to cherish Pernilla. That is such a young age to pass. My father was only 43 and I was just a babe so I didn't get to know him. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  16. a lovely tribute. My Father passed away 6 months before my parents 50th. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop xo
