Bella-Enchanted's Easter Basket Swap

Genevieve from Bella-Enchanted hosted this super fun Easter basket swap.
This was the 2nd swap I've participated in. I must say, it really is so fun putting things together for your assigned partner but really, it's even better opening up what she sends you! he he he :o)
My partner was Tamy. Here is a picture of the goodies I received from Tamy before I dug in...
Wow! Now look at all my Easter treasures spread out. I was overwhelmed with goodness.
Tamy made the sweetest pink yarn wreath. I love it! It looks so cute hanging on a hook on my hall tree. She spoiled me with such great things to be creative with. Beautiful old wallpapers, some roses, bunny playing cards, pre-cut tags, vintage trims, and crepe paper fringe.
I now have some darling ballerina's (which I have been wanting) and little bunnies too that I already have plans for. Oh yes, this is so fun!!!
And the gifts kept on coming.... Check out at the fabulous vintage postcard - I love the Easter lily's on it! I can't wait to use the porcelain server too, the yellow roses are just so pretty. Can't forget the painted wood eggs that already look so great on my coffee table!
Thanks so much Tamy! I am in aah of all the beautiful things you sent me. You are too kind!


OK.... so this is the basket I sent to Tamy. On the profile she filled out, she said she preferred chicks to bunnies, so that's the theme I went with.... I made her a pin cushion that has a chick surrounded by lots of vintage buttons.
and since Tamy is ga-ga for garlands, I made her this Easter banner from vintage tablecloths too.
This was a really fun swap! Thanks again Tamy! Happy Easter!
