Bridal Shower Gift For a Disney Fan

So it's been awhile. And I was okay with that. Life evolves, seasons change, and books come to an end.

Until unexpected little whispers stirred up inside and somehow I wasn't okay.

AND THEN my beloved Cindy started posting again {go look here} and my heart sang because not only does she let me poison her grandbaby,

(way back in 2014. Baby Walter is practically driving now.)
but we also share a love of beautiful things and vintage treasures. Or, in the case of this string art thrift store find, BOTH. That she wouldn't spot me the $25 to take it home still hurts.


Naked yearing. The perfect segue into today's gift hack which illustrates yet again how bridal showers are like Christmas morning for those of us who enjoy walking the line of propriety.

In my defense, the lovely bride and groom registered for this movie, and since a theme is only as fun as it's foundation...well...you know where to assess blame.

Plus we couldn't just throw all those random (super practical!) items in a gift bag. The universe is made up of order. YOU CANNOT ARGUE WITH SCIENCE.



Easy. Sexy. And under $20.

  1. Bwahaha! For realsies you have a true gift of imagination coupled with just enough cray-cray to make others feel they're living an alternate reality in your presence. And it's Sooo good. The string art definitely shoulda come home with you and been framed next to a pic of me dancing on the light pole in the parking lot.

    1. Takes cray-cray to know cray-cray. Also, the mere MENTION of your pole...ability...is enough to make me giggle. With jealousy, of course ;)

  5. FEAR is the appropriate word. People are usually afraid. But a gift should make you feel something, right? So I guess it's a win. Nice seeing you again too!

  9. You don't know me, I don't know you. I originally found your blog years ago because of gift wrapping....ha, ha......check in periodically....have been sad not to see you but I totally get that life happens. For whatever reason happened to check today and found a new entry from a few days ago. You know in my circles I'm known for my gift wrapping.....but nothing I do compares to you....you are so original....mine usually involves cute paper and a huge bow tied with sixty million different ribbons and things sticking out from it....ha, ha....for whatever reason, people think that's hard......but you are on a different level, so unique.......your mind works in mysterious ways and I mean that as a complement!!!!! I just wanted to let you know, you are very talented.......and as a separate comment....that shower gift will long be remembered over much more expensive gifts....your's is the gift that will be talked about!!!!! Have a good one!!!!

    1. Cheryl,

      Your signature wrapping sounds classic and lovely - two qualities I've set my sights on but always fall short. Too much inner mischievousness oozes out and gets in the way, I suppose :) Thanks for sticking around all this time! XOXO

  11. You don’t always have to buy expensive gifts to impress your loved ones, because you can use witty ideas to provide homemade greeting cards to close friends.
