I just got back from my future DIL's wedding shower. Mom and I drove down to Clearwater from Orlando, spent the night, and then enjoyed a fabulous shower yesterday hosted by the DIL's Sister and Mom.
I will share tons of shower pictures with you later this week.
It was a travel themed shower. The very creative Mother of the bride made these adorable travel themed invites
Now, I know this was not your typical wedding shower gift like towels or sheets, but it was the perfect gift for my son and his fiance
It started with a rusty old tool box I sanded, painted, and then added water slide decal travel stickers to go with the shower travel theme. You see, these "Kids" love antiques, junking, estate sales, and refinishing furniture. They sold their refinished wares at their first show 2 months ago....Yep, their hooked.....The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! So, I knew they would love some supplies to feed their habit
The future DIL has talked about Annie Sloan paint, but it's a little pricey, and she has not been able to bring herself to purchase any....So..
I included some, along with the wax
I finished the inside of the tool box with sheet music and a saying by Dr Suess
And a note from Mom (Me)
I am so thrilled that these "Kids" love junking and DIY projects, not just because I love it (OK, that doesn't hurt) but, because I think when a couple has a shared interest it will bring such joy to their marriage and be the (Hot) glue that binds them
Since my DIL has been living with me (Her and my son live in DC, where she works for the Senate, but she is staying with me for four month while working on the Florida Senator's re-election campaign) we have had tons of fun going to estate sales and thrift stores.
Stay tuned for more shower pictures later in the week.........
