special baby gift {and a giveaway!}

This Saturday we are throwing a baby shower for the newest little addition to our neighborhood! When giving a shower gift I love to give handmade - I often tuck a few necessities from the registry into one of my buckets! This time around the sweet little guy and his proud parents will be receiving a set of handmade book plates and the hardcover version of one of our family's favorite books. You can check them out here and here.


Did someone say giveaway?
The lovely Terri at FromTheLibraryOf has so kindly offered up a set of her beautiful bookplates for one lucky oh, buckets' reader! And, I will throw in a book so you can have your very own gift set - perfect for sticking in an Easter basket, giving as a birthday gift, or maybe you too have a baby shower coming up!


To get yourself entered head over to Terri's shop, pick out your favorite item, and then stop back here to tell us what that item is. Want a bonus entry? Become a follower of oh, buckets' blog - those who are already followers will automatically be entered in the drawing. On Tuesday, April 5 I will conduct a random drawing and announce the winner!


Good luck and I'll see you back here on Thursday with a seriously creative children's shop!

I like Terri's shop. My favorite bookplate is Daisy Chain - it reminds me of books when I was little. Thanks, Jesi!!!

What an adorable idea, Jes! Book plates are such a great idea for personalizing my favorite baby gift. My favorite on Terri's shop is the boy on the moon
(okay it was a tough call, I also really loved the Tree of knowledge). Love, love, love it!

For little girls, I really love the fairy one. Especially the Fairy and the Bubble Bee. Ok and the butterfly Rider :) For little boys I like the Hey Diddle Diddle ones and the Camelot one.
