Vintage Baby Shower ~ Printables!

My sister-in-law is expecting...
Baby is due early December!
I was honored (and excited) when
she asked me to help plan her
vintage-themed shower!

The more I looked around at beautiful
showers, the more I felt inspired to create a
few things with Victorian images... hope you
can put them to good use!

4" round graphic... 



The original postcard graphic
only came in a baby girl version...
I hand-tinted the ribbon
blue for the baby boy.



 This is such a cute idea... cards passed out
to guests to write well-wishes for the baby.  Here's
the original printable, which inspired mine.



Here are the free graphics 
used in my artwork:

*Vintage Images*

*The Graphics Fairy*
*The Feathered Nest*

*Antique Images*

*Lilac & Lavender*

Thanks so much 
for stopping by!

    1. Thanks Lucy... overall the summer's going well, except for this recent bump in the road without power, but it's certainly making the days seem longer, and I'm finding a deeper appreciate for modern living... aka ~ air conditioning, running hot water for dishes, laundry, showers... and fridges and freezers!

  7. Megan, thanks so much for these. What wonderful timing. I am planning a baby shower for a friend in a few weeks. Her baby's name is Meaghan. :) The wish cards will be wonderful for guests to fill out at the shower - blessings the mom can keep for her daughter.
    Blessing hugs,
    Teresa

    1. What an awesome coincidence :) Gotta say, I love the name choice... didn't know if people were still using it, so it made my day to see they are!! As far as the wish cards, I think you'll be able to get 4 to a page... have fun with the planning and celebration!

    1. Thank you Janet! It was so frustrating to be driving back home from work last night, seeing lights along the way, and then just before our little town... nothing. It does take patience and looking for the good in the situation. Been sending many thoughts and prayers your way :)
