A Quick Birthday Gift....

Yesterday we had a very late surprise party/luncheon for my sis in law Angela.  She turned 30 in August, but was trying to have a baby and wasn't feeling her best.  The little munchkin decided to wait two more weeks to come!  Now that she is feeling a bit better and more her old self, we decided it was time for a party!  We had great fun!  We all brought fun lunch stuff, chicken salad on cloud biscuits, super thinly sliced Virginia Ham on cloud biscuits (YUM), mini PB & J and PB&H (for the kids), creamy chicken taquitos, fruit salad, and chips.  Needless to say we ate well!  For dessert, Angela's favorite, white cake with sour cream chocolate frosting, and tres leches.  Both were very yummy.  There was lots of laughter and talking, there were 10 of us, plus kiddlets, so it was a noisy place, we had a great time!

I had planned to make a knock off of these Pottery Barn pillows for Angela's gift, but between consignment sales, company, and in general I hadn't found the time.

So instead I made this.

She loves antique keys, and has her living room decorated with them.  This was a really quick project, a tutorial will follow another day!

She also like burlap, so I wrapped the gift in a burlap bag I won in a giveaway from Luxe Boulevard earlier this year.  I finished it with a bit of antique lace and one of my fabric flower hair clips.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!!
