Wedding Gift Registries ...

My brother is getting married very very soon :)

He and Davina (he is David!) have a gift registry and today I took an item (an ironing board) off their list and am REGRETTING it. I know that they need one. I know that it will be used each and every day, hopefully for the next 60 odd years, but how boring boring boring, especially from ME! I have a store full of gorgeous gifts and I succumbed to a little insert in their invitation. I wish I had bought them a cupboard full of a range of Pantone mugs in all the colours of the rainbow. Now that would be a gorgeous and fun gift! Not only would their cupboards look awesome, but it is a great way of keeping track of which one is your mug when visitors are over. Maybe I should put it down as my Mother's Day gift to myself!

I wonder if I can put the ironing board back on their list ........

That would be a great gift!

But don't worry, I'm sure they will love your gift. After all - it's useful.

At least they put reasonable things on their registries. I've been to some wedding where the cheapest gift on their registry was over $200. Poor form I think.

Glad you like your Peony Rose! :)

LOVE my peony! Thank you.

I console myself knowing that there will be lots of other occasions to give gifts :)

All I need to do now is track down the right model - I had no idea there were so many types of ironing boards. I use my mums one from the 1970s that she brought across from NZ!

Oh I love these! I have the purple and the red. I feel like such a desaign nerd though, getting so excited about pantone mugs!

I hope they release more stuff in the range!
