Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap...

This was such a fun swap! We had 2 partners each and were to make an Easter Basket out of a yogurt cup and send 5 little treasures with it. My first partner was Karen. This is the beautiful basket she created and the lovely treasures she sent! A sweet Easter postcard, a beautiful pink broach, a lovely little doll, a decopaged egg, and a beautiful piece of sheet music with pretty pink flowers on it! Thank you Karen I love it all!
My second partner was Linda. This is the sweet basket she created! She turned it into a pin cushion! And the lovely gifts she attached to sweet little cards, glass buttons, crown charms, glass glitter, a cameo, and a rhinestone adorned roll of lace! Thank you Linda! I love it all!
Here are the five little gifts I sent. Above went to Linda and below went to Karen. I made a wreath out of a wooden curtain ring, a velvet bookmark with vintage jewels, a vintage salt shaker filled with german glass glitter, a millinery flower, and a piece of rhinestone jewelry.


I could not locate the pictures of the baskets I made my partners ( I think my computer ate them!) So hop on over to Miss Rhea's she has the complete list of partners. Thank you Miss Rhea for hosting such a great swap!
Have a joyful Easter!

All so pretty! :) I've seen other of these pretty baskets around. So cute.
I also came by to let you know that I'm hosting a swap: a Pretty Pockets Swap, and I would love to have you participate. If you're busy, I understand! I'd love to have a creative lady like you swappin' along though. :D

How cool! I have an irridescent orange brooch that is an exact copy of the pink flower one. I love my brooch and do wear it on occasion.

I love the baskets all of you made. Wish I had a side view of the basket with the ruffels. I see ruffles on the top and bottom. But what is wrapped around the center ? I had so much fun doing this. Come and join me at my blog for a giveaway at www.lilbitoldlilbitnew.blogspot.com
