A Weekend of Baby And Wedding Showers

A dear friend of mine recently gave me a large black notebook full of old pattern packets that I designed over several years. She thought that I might like to sell them so I am listing them over the next few days on eBay. You can check them out here.

Friday evening my daughter, Amber, was given a wedding shower by a dear friend. This is what I made for their home. I learned to mosaic by purchasing directions from Penny's blog, Lavender Hill Studio. Her directions are very easy to follow. You can click on the photo for a closer view.

My daughter and her sweet fiance, Scott, will be getting married on July 11th in Eureka Spring, Arkansas. We are looking forward to this event and I will share some photos of the newly weds soon!

I also attended a baby shower for my niece. She and her hubby adopted this sweet little guy, Carter Ashton, and we are so excited to have another sweet angel in our family! Here he is pictured with my daughter. Don't you think she would make a great mother! Hint, hint!

Below is a photo of the lovely toes of my niece, Gabby. I asked her who did her nails and she said, "I went to the Toe Place." Kids are so cute!

The above toes belong to this little cutie pie.

Congratulations on the new little one Amy and Ryan!
