Baby Shower Feature: A Wee Woodland Critter and a Mama-to-be

This mama-to-be (since become mama – welcome Baby Daniel!) is always, always glowing. Baby bump or not. This delightfully darling shower was put together by her doting sister, who happens to be my best friend since high school (long, long ago for us).

Cheesecloth, cheesecloth, cheesecloth! We used 200 yards […]
