A Tisket, A Tasket, Take a Look At This Basket!

I went to my future daughter in laws wedding shower on Saturday. We had a lovely day to travel and the trip was beautiful but a bit long due to traffic. My daughter, daughter in law, two granddaughters and myself were at the event. Just wanted to show you what I did up for a gift.
Each glass is a different flower, I used small doilies which can be used as coasters to pad between the glasses and beneath them all is a really nice bottle of wine! With the glasses having different flowers on each, no need for wine glass charms. I have not had luck with those, they always break or get lost! The glasses were a hit. I even got several orders for them while at the shower. Good thing I never leave home without my business cards, lol! If you would like a basket of glasses as a gift, just let me know. I can't ship the wine though, there are regulations about shipping alcohol that I just don't know about. It was fun to be dabbling in my paints again. I haven't done much painting outside of walls for quite awhile. Hmmmm, maybe a few flowers at chair rail height in the kitchen. What do you think?
Sunday we are going to a Christening for the cutest little new neighbor. She is the sweetest, happiest baby and her parents are pretty special too. It is fun to see the younger generation coming into the neighborhood. Keeps everything lively and fun. Hope to be able to take this little bundle of sweetness for a walk now and then this summer.
Have a wonderful week all,
Pat
