  • @flutterfly88 I am glad to see someone else doing the six pence :)
  • before planning my wedding, I didn't know about the sixpence part, it always seems to be left off the poem, but I saw one at DB when I was shopping with my mom for her dress, and liked the idea, didn't buy it b/c FI likes to collect coins, so thought he might have one. He didn't so we ordered one off ebay, and I love that I found a 1913 one :)
