I mentioned last week that it would be the last week of 'colour' themed Monday Treasures. I also mentioned that there would be some more fun stuff coming up. There have been a lot of events going on around me lately, and I have been finding them all to make me think about how neat it would be to add them to Monday Treasures. So, For the next little while, Monday Treasures will be 'event themed'. I've even made up a schedule, matched up to the 'stages of life' :) I did this as much for me as for you, so that you know what's coming up and I don't miss anything!

Soo... That means that today's Monday Treasures theme is Baby Shower!
There are a few rules that I am very strict about when it comes to baby gifts, and these are that:
1) It's not a decoration for the baby's room - chances are the nursery is already done, and if it's not, they have their own ideas on how to decorate it. They don't want to feel obliged to put up what you've bought, especially if it doesn't fit their style.
2) It's not something trinkety that serves no purpose outside of collecting dust. Babies are a lot of work - chances are it's not going to get dusted and will just look like clutter.
3) It's not something that suggests that they should live a different lifestyle than they do: ie/ if they have not told you that they want to use cloth diapers, don't buy them any.
Keeping this in mine, take a look at today's Monday Treasures!
