More Wins and a Baby Shower

This has been another FUN week to go to the mailbox! This past weekend I won Cari's giveaway of.....get this.....a $50 gift card to JCrew! I was beyond thrilled. I had visions of cute tops, scarfs, and jewelry but this is what caught my eye. I told Cari it was because I have a feeling my world is about to be invaded by all things boy and blue so I picked out this pink tote. It will even be monogrammed with my initials. Thank you so much Cari! She was one of my very first bloggy friends. :)

I also won these cute "Harvest" blocks from Connie at Shady Creek Lane. She was kind enough to offer these on Cheri's big giveaway post. I love these! I had been wanting something extra in this spot in my living room and these were the perfect fit. Thank you Connie and Cheri!

Can you believe I won something else? I also won this great handmade purse from Kate from Kate Designs. She has an adorable etsy shop here. I love her zippered pouches too. She uses the cutest fabrics! This purse is the perfect size and even has a pocket inside. I love it! Thank you Kate!

This past Sunday our Connection Group girls had a baby shower for our friend Lindsey. She is due with baby Adeline in just a few short weeks. I'm so excited to meet her!

I had fun setting up the table for a baby girl. My mom bought me this antique baby scale a couple of weeks ago because I mentioned I wanted to put one in the nursery. I thought it was the perfect thing to use for the shower.

I made a few smaller arrangements in some antique silver baby cups.

I know Lindsey likes milkglass so I used this vase for the flowers.


I was so excited to get to use some of the silver baby cups I've collected. I saw the idea of hanging some from a chandelier a long time ago on a blog (I'm sorry I have no idea where) and have been waiting to do it ever since. :)

Some of the yummy petit-fors.


I really can't believe this is the only picture I took of people! Lindsey is in the middle with some of the hostesses. We had a great turn out, great food and Adeline got some great things!

Great goodies you have won, and the baby shower pics were great. The nursery is going to be wonderful, and I would stick with some sort of neutral for the walls because it could get too dark if not. Thanks for sharing. Jackie
