I LOVE homemade gifts! I nearly forgot how much I love them until a package arrived in the mail from our dear old friends Brent and Pam. When Axel was born, they had given us a gorgeous blanket set with his name stitched on. EVERYONE commented on the blanket and of course Axel's unique name. When it came time to store the baby stuff, these particular items never made it into storage because we ALWAYS used them – the Axel blanket is still Axel's favorite and has withstood hundreds of washings, outings in the stroller, it has been used to swaddle and used as a picnic blanket.
Oliver has thus far spent his life under the "Axel blanket" and it never occurred to me I could order him one of his own. Made by Pam's sister, a set just for Oliver arrived on our doorstep today! Hooray! There's even a new item in the lineup...a hat! I would have to say it's a very welcome addition this time of year!
I have to put in a plug because these are some of my most favorite homemade items. Check out "Cozy Winters." I believe she's on facebook or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. WOW. Baby love.
