The flowers are brunsfelzia commonly known as yesterday, today and tomorrow that is the love will last, small blue forget-me-nots and blue trefoils with double picots on the centre petal.
The tatting consists of a little bit of node stitch- the rough patch in the marriage, lots of lattice for the intertwining of the lives, spiral tatting for the many twists and turns ahead mignonette for the froth and bubble of married life, gold for wealth and pearls for health and happiness.
The little basket is embroidered calico using the fancy stitches on my sewing machine and the circular foot attachment then a small tatted edge around the top.
The small mauve box is decorated with tatting.
You can just see the edge of a wedding horshoe.
