What is this piece? and the Shower (for girls only)

Seed packet added to show size

Hello, Sweetie Pies! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far! It is rainy and cool out today but I love it and the flowers seem to also.

Can you guess what the item above is? It was bought at the local thrift shop for $3. No one seemed to know what it was but I thought it was pretty and might be a nice prop for my photography.

The top finial can be unscrewed but the rest appeared to be solid.

The mother of the bride- to- be held it and unscrewed the bottom portion. Can you tell where I am going with this?

Sorry about the unappetizing dirty plates
 She unscrewed the bottom and ASHES came out....well a little bit, before she quickly screwed it back on. Yikes! It is a funeral urn! It is now in the possession of Father Jose who will be making arrangements to bury it on consecrated ground.


Please don't judge me on the cake my daughter made. Can you tell what it is?

Since we had about a day in advance to get this party rolling, Katie bought a lot of food items at Costco, like chicken nuggets, mini quiches, and a "ring leader" sub sandwich from Publix. We filled in with plates of fruit and cheese.

Girls nowadays are much more....hmmm...what do I say? Racy? My daughter said that this was a very low key party compared to some bachelorette parties. I thought it was a shower but it was a lingerie/bachelorette party without the male stripper. Did I mention the cake? You have to look close. 

Tara enjoyed the game Katie chose: to give everyone a strip of tp and make a fashion item of it.

Now for the opening of gifts:

For the wedding night

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today! May the peace, joy and love of Jesus be with you today and always!

I can't believe that someone would donate/sell their urn WITH ashes!!
Looks like you all had fun - and the cake!! Hehehehee- same with my girls!!! One of their friend's shower had 4 cakes like yours and they divided into teams and had to decorate their cakes then decide which was the "best!" No shame!
I love Costco!!

Oh, dear, on the urn! Holy cow, I would've freaked out. It is a pretty piece, though.

Looks like the shower was a success--especially with such short notice to prepare. All the fresh fruit made for some terrific color. I giggled at the cake. :)

I thought it looked like an urn but didn't think to unscrew the bottom! Goodness!

Looks like a fun party, especially when I got a closer look at that cake. Katy!!!

Ashes? Yikes!

Oh my gosh, who would give an urn with someone's ashes in it to a thrift store! That is awful yet somehow really funny.

The shower looks like it was a success. The food looks like it was really tasty, although I don't know if I could bring myself to eat that cake? Hahah.
