I didn't, sorry...but i did have to go look up sixpence because i'm a dummy and wasn't up my traditions. for anyone like me, it's the oft forgotten part of Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue...and a Sixpence in her shoe! It symbolizes wealth for the bride and groom.


so now yet another thing to add to my growing list of things to purchase!

I am not wearing shoes... however I am making my own barefoot sandals (with the help of fmil). They are going to be my something new, blue, and sixpence items all in one. I am getting a sixpence similar to the pendant one on silversixpence.com and adding it as a charm to my left barefoot sandal.


Look mom, no shoes!
