20th Wedding Anniversary - paper or wood? ...

A twentieth wedding anniversary is a biggie. I know this because my last one, which was eighteen years, wasn't listed on the 'anniversary listing' of things to buy. However, Simply Sam Trading customer Charmaine, managed to convince her husband to purchase a lovely vintage Milliners Hat Stand Block, for their wedding anniversary recently - not because wood is what you buy for your twentieth wedding anniversary, but simply because she loves these interesting hat blocks which are quite a rare find.
Her current collection of Milliner Hat Blocks now stands at around twenty three and although the suggested gift for your twentieth anniversary is Porcelain or Aluminium, Charmaine says she just loves wooden objects. Her passion for wood even extends to wooden rolling pins, a love she thinks she may have acquired from her 'Ouma'.  I think Charmaine's husband couldn't have been happier that she'd managed to find the perfect gift for him to buy for her. Now that's love for you...
