Baby Shower

Yesterday was the baby shower for my daughter-in-law. It was held outside at a park shelter and while the wind blew a little too strong at times, the day turned out great. Below is my gift. I wasn't sure how I was going to wrap the gift since the bumper pads and quilt were quite bulky and after several suggestions from many comments in a previous post I went shopping. I looked for a wicker basket first but could not find anything in the right dimensions. I felt very lucky to have found the large tote in dimensions that were almost perfect. There was room to spare inside the tote and so I filled in the space with crib sheets, a waterproof crib pad, and diapers and wipes. The tote will be handy for them also when they need to store baby items later.

The next photo is my little herb/vegetable garden that I have on my deck. I am growing chives, basil, cilantro, two kinds of lettuce and spinach. I also have a tomato plant, but that wasn't on the deck when I took the photo. We've had several days of cool weather recently and so some of the herbs haven't been growing much, but I saw we are in for some days of 80s this week, so maybe they'll take off.


  1. What a perfect solution for a gift box!

    You're herbs are looking to be off to a good start!

  2. Practical and beautiful. Sun is out up here so it is looking hot! 8^)

  3. What a great gift!!! How did she like it?!!

  4. Your gift wrap tote is super practical...and it allows just a hint of what is inside. I'm certain your gifts were well received. How fun to grow herbs. I have some and my favorite is the different chives for a fresh boost to meals. Happy growing...


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
