What was in the Blue Polka Dot Bags!?

Happy Thursday! 
Hope you all had a lovely Easter!! 
We had a wonderful day with our family, my dad smoked a couple hams (they were so delicious!!) and mom made lots of yummy foods and made us 'kids' Easter baskets! 

So here's what was in those blue polka dot bags:
I made shower gifts for my mom and my sister, Heather. 
 "The Best Moms get promoted to Grandma" 
I added a sweet nest on the side as a charm for her
'two daughters, son (in- law), and little grandson coming!' 

 I just love how it turned out for her!! 

And here's what I made for my sister: 
A sweet "Auntie" bracelet with a purple charm on the side,
 (because her favorite color is purple.) 
 I was excited how perfectly the "Auntie" fit right in the center of the oval!

Both bracelets were made out of a vintage spoon, that I hand stamped :) 

I also made my sister a necklace and it says:: The only thing better than having you as a Sister is our little boy having you as an Aunt
 I think it came out cute too, she really liked both of them :) 

And that was what was in the bags!! 
Wishing you a wonderful day!!
