Easter Swap With Jill

I was recently in a fun swap for Easter. My partner was Jill.  She collects vintage pyrex and children's books.  Skip on over to her blog to check out her collections.
 

Everything was wrapped up cute but I couldn't wait to take a picture, I dug right in.  The first picture shows stickers, cupcake wrappers, a decopaged egg, an egg magnet, and washi tape.  I've been wanting to try washi tape for a while now, can't wait.


This picture shows a vintage children's book, a vintage postcard and a sweet egg shaped trinket box.  I have some nice vintage earrings that will go inside perfectly.

Jill even included a vintage hankie from her mother's personal collection of 500.  Wow, collecting must run in the family!  I'm so touched she shared one with me.
 
 
Here we have the edible portion of the swap.  That is real maple syrup--(Jill is from Canada)--I think we are having waffles tomorrow for sure ;)
 
 
And finally the main event.  A gorgeous egg covered with shades of yellow and white vintage buttons.  And check out the little bunny on top.  Cuteness. All sitting on a tinsel wrapped spool.   This is so adorable, I couldn't capture how pretty it is with my phone camera.  I hope she has a picture on her blog.

This was such a fun swap.  Thank you Jill for being such a great partner, I love everything!
