A great weekend of celebrating. First a friend’s birthday; here is the semi-homemade present:
Container Garden with corkscrew grass & peppermint, perfect for the kitchen. I added shells for her love of the beach.
Sweet homemade garden marker with a vintage spoon & scrapbook paper, sealed with this product for waterproofing.
Also finished a baby shower present:
Sweet Baby Gap spring/summer dresses
Embellished with hand-stitched flowers
Fabric-flower frame with children’s book art
Fabric frame was made from scraps of dusty rose fabric & lace remnants
Baby button bouquet made in a vintage salt shaker
Then off to a wedding shower for a childhood friend. It was wonderful, filled with Latin American culture & Spanish speakers; great practice for when the kids come home! And I am proud to say that I understood most of what was being said (thank you Spanish class & online courses)!! Forgot to take a picture of the shower present, I gave her a monogrammed apron with her new last name’s initial, and other kitchen accouterments. But here are some lovely details from the party:
Me’me enjoying herself in a tiara 🙂
My mom got to practice her Spanish speaking tools too; proud to say they came back to her pretty quickly!
Some of the fun details
A great game of Bingo (also great Spanish vocab lesson)
El Ginególogo…the gynecologist…gave us all a good chuckle 🙂
