Wedding Dresses and the Frugal Life

 Have times really changed that much? I know I'm old fashioned, but I thought wedding gowns were supposed to be saved, maybe for your daughter, but maybe only to try on after 10 or 15 years and see if it will still fit; maybe just for memory's sake.

I'm not overly sentimental, but I saved my wedding dress for many years just because I felt as if I should. My first daughter got married in blue jeans and my second daughter is still not married. So much for that.

I will tell you a secret, though. I bought the wedding dress at a thrift store. It was beautiful, with trailing ruffles and puffy sleeves (this was a few years ago!). And... I got rid of it. I'm not sure if I want to tell you how or not.

Oh, well.

I used it in a rag rug.

The house we lived in had a hole cut in the bathroom floor for some distant past reason. It had been patched but not very well, so I made a rug to cover it. Since I didn't have enough of the right colors, I went looking and I found this dress hanging inside a plastic bag that hadn't been worn for years...

The rug is only a memory now, along with my wedding dress.

I should have sold it. Then I could have used the money to buy a rug??
