Baby stuff and houseplants

I knitted these cute baby slippers in two hours over the weekend. They are made of Merino Superwash and they are ''super'' soft. Perfect for a new baby's delicate skin. They are for my niece (or I should say for her baby-to-be). I have many nieces and nephews but Joelene is special. She's the same age as my daughter so they have always been a big part of each other's lives and we have seen her around here more often than any other niece or nephew. Two years ago her family included us in the preparations of her wedding and that meant a lot to us. Ginette was Joelene's maid of honor.

Here they are the bride-to-be on the left and the mommy-to-be on the right. Both big events will take place in August. Needless to say, Ginette had to find another bridesmaid. We are all hoping that the youngest guest at the wedding will be Ginette's new godchild.

For no reason at all, I am showing you the four houseplants I bought yesterday for a grand total of $12.

Love the baby booties , my Grandma knitted me a pair when I was born. I wish my Mom would have kept them , but she doesn't keep anything. She does have a picture of me wearing them.

That dark green plant with the white veins is beautiful , I've never seen one. What kind of plant is it ?

Congrats to the young ladies on their upcoming events , how exciting , a wedding and a new baby.

~ Many Blessings ~

JoyceAnn - my mom is the same way, she doesn't keep anything. That plant you like - I don't know what kind it is. It did'nt have a tag but I would guess it's some kind of tropical/rubber plant.
