Friends are the flowers in the garden of life ~

I am constantly amazed at the pure sweetness of the wonderful friends that I've made here through my blog ~ and today was no exception!! A package arrived today from Andreea in Texas and it was filled to the brim with gifts for baby Clara and for the baby shower!

Oh. my. goodness.....do you see those precious, tiny pink booties??? They are so beautiful ~ and Andreea sent a cozy velour outfit for Clara to stay warm in!! Handmade charms, delicious cookies (yummmm, they were so good!) and tea, beautiful flowers and to top it all off handmade loofa favors to go with our soap favors!!!! How sweet of you dear Andreea!

Thank you so, so much for each and every gift ~ I am so touched by your kindness!



















My dear friend Tammy (we've known one another almost thirty years now!) dropped by the house this evening on her way home to bring me a big bucket of gorgeous flowers for me to arrange in the old baby planters that I had.

Well, she was so wonderful and insisted that she sit down and put them together for me!!! She's said, "Oh, it'll only take me about 15 minutes!" She's a professional floral designer. So she started and I made her a dinner plate and assisted by throwing away her trimmings.....what an artist she is!!!

We laughed and talked and enjoyed her visit so much and all the while she was turning these little planters into showpieces ~ Now, they're all sitting in our extra refrigerator waiting for the shower!









I hope you have an amazing Friday sweet friends!!
xxoo, Dawn

Everything looks so beautiful. The shower is going to be awsome. How sweet of your friend to arrange the flowers for you! And the goodies you got were wonderful. Is your world going to be boring when you don't have the shower to plan, dream & create for? Have a great time. Wish we could all be there with you.

I will have a wonderful weekend , and I know you and your daughter will have an amazing baby shower. I don't always comment , but I've followed your preparations and it's going to be beautiful :). Blessings - and give the baby a little kiss from me. Babies are the Best , aren't they?! heck , you could probably kiss her from all of us - you were going to anyway , lol.
