Baby Shower Folly

Happy Sunday my friends. Although I have been away from blog~land...my heart was always near. Spring is always like this...gardening overload, cleaning overload, volunteering overload, ambition overload...something has to give...sadly time with my blog was the victim of my not~enough~time~ness.
I wrote a lot of posts....just didn't have the time to actually post the posts written in my mind. So yesterday became my no excuse day...even though I was once again a busy little bee I made sure I took photos...cha, cha, cha! {Chris, my friend, those cha, cha's are for you} and more importantly...I am posting.

I wanted to share a baby shower gift I have given a couple of times and always is a crowd pleaser and, I might add, ton~of~fun to put together.

First go to Target or a shop where they have cute~ola baby shoes and purchase a whole bunch....if they are well priced it will be hard to stop...then head on home and let the folly begin!

I will let my pictures speak for themselves ~

Here is my little shoe poem I wrote to go with the gift...

I took a basket and painted it the color I wanted and put some paper shred in the bottom.
Here comes the folly part...put the shoes in cellophane bags and add tags with frolicking suggestions for those shoes...
Take a peek~a~roonie...

Shoes for Sweet Dreaming...

Oh my good golly....bunny slippers...how could I resist...

If you can't beat 'em...join 'em...we live in Oregon...I'm just saying ~

CUTE!

Twirling shoes...

Be still my heart...

A very important activity...teach them early...

Gotta love daisys!

But of course...



Do these come in my size?

I put paper shred in the bottom of each cellophane bag and added some fake~ola flowers...just pulled the buds of the stems...

Gently pile them in your basket...

I curled the tags around a pencil...for extra flair...

Bits of ribbon and tulle and scrapbook paper...folly extraordinaire...

Added a butterfly...

Glued the shoe poem to some Amy Butler paper and rolled it up, tied it snug as a bug and tucked it in and yes, I sealed it with a kiss...

Glued more buds to the tulle and went on my merry way to the shower!

It was a wonderful afternoon...sitting in one place...not running all over the town like a crazy girl...Bliss! Good food, good company and a precious new life anticipated.

And I learned something...I need to jump in more puddles, remember to have more sweet dreams, stop to smell more roses and by all means...do more yippee~ki~yaying!

Have a folly filled week!

Smiles ~ Ramona

Hi Ramona :)

What a gorgeous and thoughtful gift!

Thank you so much for your kind words to me about my son. It's been difficult to say the least, but I recieved a letter yesterday that he was alright and I feel like a dark cloud has been lifted.

Happy Easter to you and yours...

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
