A very Pink Baby Shower!

Here are just a few pics of the very PINK baby shower I helped with last weekend.
It was lovely.

The chalkboard I made from an old picture that
belonged to my parents.  Find it in this post.
Glad I didn't trash it, we have used it so many times.

Sweet Mallie!

Ariel made this little pin for "Mamaw" to wear!

Debbie bought lots of tuell to make the table cover!


The vintage white vases looked great sitting around the table
and were perfect for holding the food labels.
Adding a little pink ribbon was the only thing we needed to hold them in place.

We displayed the shower invitation on
a white easel. I use this easel all the time!
Great to have around the house. The paper napkins have
a doily wrapped around them and ribbon tied on.

These chairs for the mom and dad "to be"  had blue cushions but adding pink
was a quick fix.  Just unscrewed the seats and folded
this pink fabric under, and added the screws back in.
I didn't staple or glue the fabric down.

These were so easy to make,
just printed on white and glued it to the pink
printed scrapbook paper.  We used the craft scissors to cut.

Driftwood Clothes Hanger

I needed a clothes hanger last night for a dress I had made for Mallie.
I saw one on Pinterest a few months ago but can't find it to share, but I will keep looking and hopefully add it later.
Greg goes to the Hiwassee river often to look for pieces of driftwood so I had lots to choose from for this project.  I explained what I wanted and 10 min later I had this: 

He did smooth out the ends of the driftwood for me.
This piece is about 10 in long.

Drill a small hole, just big enough for a piece
from a wire clothes hanger.

I used a brown wire clothes hanger, with
wire cutters you can cut the hook off.

Goes right in the drilled hole.

Now you have a cute hanger for special outfits.
I am using these while working on projects, and for
taking pics for Jess.

Must cuter than a plastic hanger. Greg is
looking for a perfect piece of driftwood that
has more shape to it.  But this one works fine!

T-Shirt Pillowcase

I found this t-shirt for Mallie at a local thrift store for a dollar.  It's an Old Navy brand with a nice screen print and hand embroidery. Perfect for making into a pillow!  Inspired by pinterest of course, check it out here

I love anything with hand embroidery

I added some ties at the bottom to help hold the pillow in.

It's a great color of green, perfect for March!
And so soft!
The t-shirt was small so the pillow is the size
for a baby or toddler bed. 
I fringed the extra fabric from the sleeves and added to the bottom.

Green Garland

Jessie asked for St Patricks day garland, lucky for her I had some scrap paper on hand.
A few punch outs and a seam later it was finished.
