It's almost time!

I spent the better portion of the day yesterday working on baby shower prep. Ironing linen napkins, transplanting wheat grass to clay pots I had painted and then added lace trim to....(note to self: don't transplant next time; plant directly into pots....) Borrowing china, pink Depression glass cups, cake plates, a punch bowl, tablecloths and several vintage clocks from my friend Joy (her blog header has a few of the clocks in it....) who e-mailed me last week and said, "If you need anything for the shower, my cupboards are open." Hello? YES! I picked up 3 boxes full of items, and delivered them to the parents-to-be house during one of the most torrential downpours I have ever been in. By the time I had carried everything to the house, I was literally soaked. My hair was sopping.... fresh-out-of-the-shower-wet. I do not miss the valley rain.

Sound like your party will be the place to be. I hope you post all the pictures because the suspense is too much! It sounds like it will be amazing.

I'm also curious what you had in the boxes.

And thanks for your cheering. I've had a rough week or so.

Hey Diva! Hope you are dry by now..."Don't miss the valley rain" the hell you say?! Of course you miss it...Makes the moss in your lungs grow, but you know that! Sounds like the only person who missed the beautiful shower was the baby! How lucky your friend is to have you formulating plans and executing the details for her fete! You are a great pal. Cudos for a job well done!
Now think of what you're going to call your EVENTS PLANNING business...
