pink and brown are the new black

NoJo and Gumdrop colored with pink and brown crayons on white paper sacks for the favor bags for Littlelle's shower... i don't think there are any pictures of the bags ... nope ... but they were groaning and moaning after the first coloring session how many more of these do we have to do, Nona?!? Auntia, can't i use some other crayon?!? pink and brown are BORING!!! ...

the favors included the pink buns in the ovens, and these cup cozies ...
that is about 40 of them ... and, not to leave out the little girls, i made some Disney Princess and Care Bear cozies from quilt scraps ...... and these chocolates (which, to me, look like a pile of pantyhose - now i know why the brown tulle circles were on sale - i should have spent a few more pennies on the pink ones) ...
and these little maternity smock sachets ...
one of them had a bun in the oven...here's a close-up ... i need to practice my photography skills because it is much, much cuter in real life ... we found the charm at Inedible Jewelry (this was my second order from them - they make the cutest, most realistic food charms!) and ordered two ... the other one is for Littlelle's stocking ...
and here is a picture of the goodies that were the result of marathon baking ... there's a bit of fruit to add some color (and to balance out the total lack of anything that could be considered health food ... there just isn't any baked item on that table that is good for the body ... but the for the soul? oh yeah, Auntia and i know how to bake some comfort food) ...
that is Mrs. Blakesmom's dining room ... she has a lovely home and is an very gracious hostess ... that's all the pictures that were on my camera ... i was too busy being busy to take pictures with anything but my heart.

You're right. I just had to make a pink and brown quilt for my SIL's baby due in April. It turned out cute even though I agree with the one that said, "pink and brown are boring!", LOL
