Bridal Shower Gifts

Last Saturday I attended a bridal shower for my best friend's daughter who is getting married next week. My friend and I have been "besties" since kindergarten.....40 years! For a shower gift, I made some seasonal table runners & potholders and then added a cookbook that I think is phenomenal for a new cook. When I was going through my mother's wedding things, I found an unused, still in cellophane, shower gift card. Instead of using the original (shown in the picture), I copied it and cut it with deckled scissors to attach to my package.

Very nice gifts. I've been 'thinking' about making some table runners but that's as far as I've gotten with it. Have a great week.

What a wonderful gift! All newlyweds can use more things to furnish their home and help decorate it!
