Keepsake Tiles by Sadie Ryan

Sadie Ryan Keepsake Tiles are unique gifts and the perfect way to display a copy of the invitation to your wedding.  Her tiles are crafted by hand using the age old practice of sand casting.  This process results in an antique white finish that is a perfect foil for your wedding invitation.  Each tile has a design at the edge to highlight your invitation information.  At this time they offer The Fleur-de-lis & Scroll Antique Finish shown on their web site. Tiles come in two sizes: 8.75 x 7 inches or 10.75 x 6.5 inches. If there is some information you do not want on your tile, talk to them when you place your order and they will try to accomodate you.  The stand is sold separately, but this makes the perfect keepsake for the newlyweds. They also do birth announcements and baby tiles.
