Swap Basket

This sweet basket was made by Dianne of Saturday Finds. The base is a recycled yogurt cup covered with vintage wall paper. It is trimmed with delicious crepe paper (love). The handle has a silver mercury glass bead and pretty forget me nots.

Take a look at the bottom of the basket. So pretty trimmed with pearls and teeny tiny flower.

Inside the basket was an array of tiny little pretties. A wooden bunny ornament, tiny chenille chick (I can never get enough of those guys), pretty speckled egg, glass bunny ornament, and a sheet of tiny stickers. I love all things petite and can't wait to use them next spring.

I have admired Dianne's decorated nut cups and baskets for some time now. At last I have one and it is so cute in person, the camera can't capture blues very well. Thank you for being such a sweet partner Dianne. I loved meeting you and making a new friend.

Swap Basket

This gorgeous basket was made by Miss Rhea of Sweet n shabby roses. Its base is a recycled yogurt cup. The basket is covered with pretty vintage wall paper, a variety of pretty laces and fluffy crepe paper (my favorite stuff in the world).

In addition to the basket Rhea also sent a darling rabbit with a crepe collar, a cute crackled egg on a vintage thread spool, the loveliest linen napkins in a cool cream color, and my favorite item a pretty china plate made into a wall hanging with a mirror, lovely roses and sparkly rhinestones.

Here is another shot of the basket and a bag filled with seam binding and vintage earrings in gorgeous neutral colors. And on that bag a sweet pair of pearl and rhinestone earrings. I guess I don't have to tell you she spoiled me rotten, and man I love being spoiled. Thank you Rhea for being an awesome partner. I can't until next year's swap.
