Last night was my 4th and Final wedding shower. This one was more casual, beachy in theme, and was with my mom's side of the family. I didn't take any photos, like an idiot, but I took some this morning of a most fantastic gift.
These pillowcases were made by hand by an 85 year old Missouri woman. Apparently she does it all the time! I just can't believe how finely crafted they are--not to mention the fun and totally awesome color palette! I mean, wouldn't you expect like a dusty rose/country blue/yellow kind of thing?
I just gushed and gushed about these. I got lots of lovely household gifts, of course. And it was so nice to see everyone. Now that we're living back here I can see everyone more often, and it was nice to tell them goodbye, knowing that in just a week and a half, I'll see them again! (Gulp.)
