We celebrated our seventh (copper and wool) anniversary with a trip to Scotland!
Anniversary gifts
I gave Nick a wool sweater, wrapped in a copper-coloured box, with this handmade card keeping to the theme.

Nick gave me a copper farthing and these sliver shillings, all dated 1898 (100 years before we met). We will use the shillings in our Christmas puddings.
Anniversary cake
At home, we celebrated with a chocolate truffle cake, dusted with copper
In the lovely and highly recommended Ayden Guest House, we breakfasted on porridge and eggs Benedict.
