Four sure signs there’s going to be a wedding: a frog at the door, front of the dress on fire, cups with two spoons and mother cuts the sign of the cross overhead

Sharry based her collage on a combination of four pieces of folklore:

A frog coming to the door is a sign of marriage in the family

If a girl’s apron takes fire in front it is a sign of marriage

Two spoons given in cup signify an invitation to a wedding

Some mothers cut the sign of the Cross with tongs held in left hand three times over the head and three times at the feet of a girl going out to be married
