There is no surprise that I'm seeing spots after the Baby Shower. It was a big success - a lovely day with family and friends. My SIL has an amazing home and garden and gave the menu a delicious gourmet touch.

Ring Around the Briar Rosies was not the only hand made gift they received including several quilts, a baby pod, receiving blankets, a bonnet, a crocheted afghan, bath time apron, a hooter hider (such a catchy name) and toys - such a talented guest list.
