Easter Basket Swap Party
















Miss Rhea had hostessed an Easter basket swap with 71 fun loving girls. Today is the swap party where all the links will be posted on each site so we can look at all the gorgeous goodies that were given and received.....Rhea's blog is here...http://sweetnshabbyroses.blogspot.com/


She has a blog list with all 71 participants and I hope you join me in looking at all the Easter goodies that we exchanged. We were asked to make baskets using yogurt cups, what fun I thought. Then we were to add 5 items inside or outside of the basket. We each had two partners....

Mine were

I made each girl a basket wrapped in pink foil paper, filled it with pink shredded paper and millinery pastel flowers with a bird on top, also tied two hankies together on the sides. I sent them a small black box that said Faith on it for their trinkets, A black and silver bracelet with a gold cross, candy shaped night light, pink admit one tickets, rick rack, address book, and a lemon chocolate flavored Easter chic to eat. This is the basket I received from Melinda, and all the wonderful goodies that she did as well.


I first opened up my box to find a basket tied up with pretty crinkly paper with a pretty gift tag. Then as I unwrapped things I found an adorable lavender crepe paper made basket with a purple egg inside, an awesome art made canvas on an easel, a square pin cushion that had button pins already poked in it to get me started, a chocolate decorative bunny, and last but not least a giant golden foil wrapped bunny that I ate as soon as I took these pictures. I hope the picture show how much time she put into making me smile. Did I say I loved it all ?? I Loved it all.. I heard Denise is having storm problems. I hope things are alright Denise. Have a wonderful Easter to everyone and I hope you follow the bunny hops and check out the other baskets.
