Almost ready!

Ok- I'm almost ready for the shower. I have to glue the labels I made onto the water bottles and a few more last minute things. Whew!!

Then I can start working on the Seasonal Simply Summer Sister Swap. We are suppose to be assigned our partners on the 2nd of August. This should be a fun one! I have a few more projects I want to work on too.

I went to an antique shop here that I had never been to, and found some cool things. Found a small suitcase in really good shape, a Samsonite, Some blocks, one has a sail boat on the back, cute! Also found this piece of sheet music and these bridge tallys, one of the tallys has a drawing that someone did on the back, of a woman's face. And I got this lighter for my husband, he collects old lighters. The last pic is of another little thing I made for the shower, one of those fortune teller things we all use to fold and make when we were kids, I did it in pink and white and am going to put some candy and nuts in them.

Finally getting some baby shower things done!

Finally-- I'm getting some things done on the shower! Have my lists all done and the gifts pretty much put together, just need to wrap them. and today I finished up the favors. I made small pink tussie mussies and covered the edges with white glitter,then put little silk bags with bath soaks inside, and ribbons to hang. We are going to have a raffle for those who bring diapers, so the raffle prize is a picture box (really cute little polka dot one), with all kinds of goodies in it.I wrapped it with some hand dyed gauze and tied it off with some ribbon and white feathers. Hope they like them!
