                     FOR A SPECIAL PERSON........
                                          OUR WONDERFUL DAUGHTER!
  We celebrated her 38th birthday (seems like yesterday she was born) over the weekend and had a wonderful time.
In a previous post I showed you the 3  little vintage aprons I have......
well I decided to give our daughter her first apron for a birthday gift.....she was so surprised! 
Here is what I did....boy did she love it!

First of all I wanted to display the little apron in a shadow box....I did not have one large enough....so I put my brain to the test. I went up to the attic to look around and found 2 large identical picture frames that had no glass....I bought these last year at a yard sale for $1.00 each and this is what I did.....
I cut a heavy piece of cardboard to fit one of them for the back....it fit snug as a bug in a rug!

I added some nice decorative paper and ribbon for the background.....I was really getting excited at this point.

(Drum Roll Please)

What do you think....
 I found some really nice short poems about daughters and printed them out to attach. My hubby cut out a piece of glass at work for me (fit perfectly) and I glued the 2 frames together. 
        I wish you could have been there....she was so thrilled. She walked all through her house trying to find the "perfect" place for it....she decided to hang it in the kitchen and it looked so good with her kitchen decor.

NOW.......I also made her a new apron because she loves her aprons.
 I am so glad she had a wonderful birthday.....but I don't know if I will ever be able to top this gift.

God Bless
Stay Safe
