Wedding Shower Gifts

Okay the d-man's best friend Britt is getting married and he's the man of honor so you know his mom would have to make a great gift for the bride. You girls are going to like how thrifty we were. We started out with a willow basket that we spray painted black 4.00 then we got a black mirror 5.00 4 black picture frames different sizes from 2-3 dollars 2 glass candle sticks .88 a piece a bag of tea lights 1.00 a candle lighter 1.00 One frame with something inside for all the holidays a family sign I made cost 5.00 a letter L for free had everything already 1 hurricane vase 3.00 2 taper candles .48 a plate holder 1.00 a cute fall basket 1.00 filled with thanksgiving things turkey salt and Pepper shakers 1.00 1 acorn lotion dispenser 2.00 pumpkin plate 3.00 leaf candy dish 1.00 leaf towel 1.00 1 ragmuffin made by me for around 6.00 with cute handmade tags by me Photo coasters 5.00 picture hanging stuff 1.00 and a hammer and level you know a girl needs this stuff to hang everything by herself . so here's some pics sorry there dark the battery is dying:(

So what did ya think? I'll let ya know what she thinks after the shower. Her colors in the house are tan red with black and cream so I thought this would work out for anywhere in the house. she's getting married in Dec. and we have a Christmas basket we're working on as a house warming gift for after the wedding I'll post that when I'm done with it.

Have a Great Weekend

Hi again Julie
What a great gift. You are one talented lady! Im sure that she loved it.
I have a question. How do I put a signature on my blog. It looks so much more personal than a printed one.
Hugs, Rhondi
