Getting Ready for the Baby Shower

I have been soooooo busy getting gifts ready for my new granddaughter Sofia Audrey! I have so many things to show you all. But first let me show you the gifts/prizes (what would you call them??) for the winners of the baby shower games.

Now I haven't figured out which gift/prize goes to which game, I'll get to that later but I have to say I love each one of them. I'm a little worried to what the guests will think, I mean I'm a kinda shabby, burlap, vintage, kind of girl but I know some aren't. I hope they'll like them or maybe regift them to someone who can love them the way I do lol. I mean hell it beats a dollar bin/store gift right??

Ok, so here they are....cue in the runway music lol

1st up a beautiful set of Rose Altered Books

They're sooo pretty!

Here is a beautiful Burlap Roses Bouquet with a touch of bling.....

one of the cutest Springtime Wreaths ever....

and soooo simple & quick to make. Love, makes me just smile ahhh and last but not least.....
a beautiful set of 3 custom designed (lol) Kitchen Towels fit for a Queen....

now I just used tshirt iron-on transfer sheets for these..too pretty.

What do you think?? Likey?? Would you like handmade gifts over store bought?? Can you tell I'm nervous about giving these?

I also have a set of 3 custom designed (lol) Decorative Pillows but I'm to tired to go & snap some picture but I will I promise cause they do look cute. I plan on giving these for a drawing we're having for those that bring an extra bag of Pampers or Formula.

I hope to show you some of the decorations and gifts in the next few days too. In the meantime, here's a list of where I got my inspiration or tutorials from:
