Baby Shower

I went to a baby shower last weekend. It was so delightful! The party was thrown by some artist friends for another artist friend, Connie, who will be a first-time Grandmother -- and for the mother-to-be, of course!

Hostesses Michelle and Lu did a lovely job decorating with butterflies! They were everywhere.

My very favorite gift to give is books! I don't even bother looking at the registry. I know lots of other folks will buy all those necessary items. And others love buying cute little girly clothes (I do too, in fact). But mostly, I love picking out books! I usually choose ones that I enjoyed reading with my kids.

I chose On the Day You Were Born, Jamberry, Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? and Good Night Gorilla. I made this little tote for them.
I hope Baby and her Grandma will enjoy lots of special times reading together!

Love the butterflies! I'm such a sap, I actually cry when I read "On the Day You Were Born." It's that beautiful. Mr. Brown and Goodnight Gorilla were big hits at our house too.

This is my favorite baby shower gift, too. Is this my friend, Connie? I hope to meet her some day. I must get to Texas.

Deborah, I love books too and I'm glad you thought of these special ones. Your bag is a treasure as well.
