Hello girls! Today is such an exciting day! As so many of you know, Andrea is pregnant and expecting a baby girl. A perfect addition to their already adorable family! A bunch of other blogging friends and I have been keeping lots of secrets from her! We've been planning a surprise baby shower for her and today is the day of the big event! Hope and I are the lucky girls that get to present her with the abundance of handmade baby gifts that are sure to make her swoon! I can not wait to see her reactions to all the presents! Right now, I'm on my way to Leesburg. Hope and I have planned to arrive at Tuskie's for lunch a few minutes before Andrea is set to arrive and set the table with all of the lovlies. We'll return to the parking lot and just walk in with her, as if we too are just arriving! My goodness, the suspense of this is already too much to handle!
So, this is my gift for Andrea and her sweet little girl. It's a mobile to hang in the nursery. Layers upon layers of hand dyed and hand cut fabric and tulle flowers... 100 or so, I lost count. I can't wait to see that nursery! I know Andrea will have it looking like a little girl's dream! Lots of tutus, tiaras, and dollies in dresses. I don't have a girly nursery anymore... otherwise, I'd show it hanging over a little girl's crib. It's rather tough to photograph. Hopefully you still get the picture.
I had a few other things already purchased for here before Jenn organized the online shower and I'll share them with you as well... Because she's her mother's daughter, she'll be needing a sweet strawberry of her very own! I'd purchased it a few days before Andrea told me she was having a girl, I was grocery shopping at Wegman's, strolling down the organic/ natural baby aisle and came upon this darling velor strawberry stroller toy! I immediately snatched it and put it in my cart, figuring it was too perfect to pass up! I know how much Andrea loves religious items, especially vintage. So, when I saw this pink crucifix and Mary medal while I was out antiquing months ago, I had to get it for her! Even though I really did want it for myself, I knew it had to be for her! A closer look.... Finally, I found this darling cut velvet dress with the tiniest of buttons, the sweetest collar and ruffles, of course. I'm pretty sure we have the same taste in dresses, since she mentioned she purchased a dress for her little bambina that I also purchased for my girls! So, I hoping she'll love it for her little bundle! I'll be back real soon with pictures of our day! Yay!
Here's the list of all the girls "attending" the shower.... Be sure to visit at all of them, lots of beautiful handmade baby gifts for you to view!
