Easter Basket Swap

Miss Rhea at Sweet n' Shabby Roses hosted an Easter Basket Swap. She gave a tutorial on how to make them and gave us each two names to swap with. It was soooo much fun! This was the first time I ever participated in anything like this and I was excited.

These are the two little baskets I made to swap. I filled them with yellow chicks in a nest, vintage buttons, vintage postcards and little porcelain bunnies.

One of the ladies I swapped with is Linda at Ribbons Roses and More . She's a very talented lady and can paint the most beautiful roses!! She painted two simple little plastic eggs with pink roses and sprinkled some clear glitter on them and they became spectacular!

There were lots of goodies in the basket, but my most favorite item with this most adorable little chicky that she made and painted. It is absolutely adorable and I LOVE it!

She included a little sugar egg with a teeny little baby chick inside. How cute is that!

I also received a little bag of cookies and cream chocolate eggs that were gone almost as fast as I opened the package. But I wasn't the only one eating them!! My daughter started it!!!!!

I was very surprised when I received a big box from Stephanie at Rose Petals and Rust
Not only did she make the cutest little basket, but she also lots of wonderful goodies that are so totally me!! She pegged me right from the start.

These printing blocks are so sweet. "X & O" Hugs and kisses in vintage little wooden printing blocks. I think those were my fav from her package.

She also included a cream colored hat, a vintage linen tea towel, white millinery flowers and of course, the adorable basket made up of vintage embroidery, crochet and sweet little buttons.

Oops! I almost forgot to mention the great little frame she sent, too. It's very simple but very beautiful with it's mother of pearl inlay in the frame. I really love it! You can see it showing in the background of the photo below.

I was amazed at the talent, thoughtfulness and kindness of these wonderful ladies that I met through Miss Rhea's swap. Linda and Stephanie are as sweet as can be and both have wonderful blogs that you have to visit. And be sure to stop by Miss Rhea's blog, too. You will love them all. I promise!

How fun to be part of such an amazing swap! I would have LOVED to be on the receiving end of one of those beautiful baskets you made.

Oh, and to answer your question, my booth is located in Kerrville, so I'm only 60 miles down the road from you. Come see me!!! We can go shopping and hang out, too. :-)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Thanks for coming by.
I'm finding out the double clicking does not work on all photos, but does work sometimes so i try it on everything.
