Anniversary Heart

Anniversary Heart, Silk Rose Heart Wreath, (12" x 12")
Fannie Narte

Tremayne and I celebrate our thirty-first wedding anniversary today! We were born in the same year, only five months apart, and grew up in the same country town and went to the same school. Our fathers worked hard on the sugar plantation in Hawaii. Tremayne's father decided to seek a better life, and moved his family to California when we were nine years old. Tremayne and I were reacquainted as young adults by one of our classmates, and we became fast friends. We discovered that we shared many similar experiences. A year after that first meeting thirty-one years ago, we were married.

Anniversary Heart

I created this silk rose heart wreath to decorate the guest book table at Ku'ulei's and Kenny's wedding reception many years ago. I first created many rose corsages, and then secured those clusters onto a wire heart wreath using white floral tape.

Fannie: 3-1 wow and double oops, triple wow. Congratulations Fannie & Tremayne. What a wonderful fairy tale story. That is worth telling to your grandchildren. I hope you have special time set aside for today. It passes so fast, where do all those years go? Where did they live in CA? Happy Anniversary, dove
