A Gift for Baby and New Mom

Hello Everyone!
Monday
 My favorite Day
This Saturday afternoon I went to a baby shower.  As you know I try to be thrifty. I belong to a large society of women and someone is having a birthday or a baby just about every month.  So I started making my gifts.


First is the basket.  Basket story~Sweetheart is at a yard sale and buys about 20 baskets for a ($1.00) dollar.  Now I have lots of baskets to give as gifts.


Next is a handmade lavender heart sachet to put under the new mom's pillow after the baby is born to help her sleep.


Soft and fragrant


Always nice to have a bow on the basket


Some Bath Salts with lavender for a good soak in the tub after delivery.


Last a handmade card with a little something $ so mom can buy whatever she wants for the new baby or herself.


Card stock and a photo of the wild violets in my garden and a scanner is the recipe for a handmade card.


A ribbon to hang the lavender sachet.


My favorite pastime!!! Making a Mosaic

  7. Having joined Mosaic Monday this week I am now enjoying blog hopping around the world admiring everyone else's beautiful photography and gaining inspiration. It cheers me when so much of the world around us is in turmoil for one reason or another.

    What a sweet gift for your friend.
