A Busy Day.

Today I’m busy entertaining two of my nephews. It’s a special day. We are waiting to hear of the arrival of their new baby brother. It’s going to be one of those days you’ll remember forever, and I’ll have my camera at the ready to document everything…eek…so exciting!

Last week I attended a quaint baby shower for my sister-in-law. Already well stocked on baby boy items, she’d requested dippers. I just couldn’t bring myself to walk into a shower with a packet of huggies, so the night before I used what I had (a used fruit crate) and dressed it up just a little.

Naturally, I couldn’t just welcome my nephew with dippers, so I bought him a special outfit and dressed the box up to match the crate. I love how they looked together.

The blue and white paper is a disposable table cloth I bought at Ikea years ago. It’s been one of the best rolls of paper I’ve ever purchased, I just love the pattern and it’s very think and durable. I think I got it on clearance at the end of summer, so keep your eye’s pealed for similar items this year.

I always get such a kick out of repurposing things!
