Hey ya'll! Today I'm sharing my dining table centerpiece that I created on the cheap cheap cheap! Adding seasonal touches to your home does not have to cost a lot of money!

Hand-Made Baby Shower Gifts

Baby-Shower-13

I am really close to my younger brother, largely due to the fact that I was responsible for looking after him a lot when we were kids. Honestly though, I loved to play with him whether I had to or not. He was such a sweet little boy. He's six years younger, but the age gap makes no difference these days. He can always bring a smile to my face. This past weekend I took a little road trip with my parents and my 11-year-old, to SC for he and his wife's baby shower. Today I'm going to share … [Read more...]
