Easter swaps

*** Happy Easter Girly Girls ***

Genevieve at
Bella Enchanted hosted an Easter Basket swap!
Too fun...... You are never too old for an easter basket!!!!
Colleen at frosting and sparkles was my partner

Oh my gosh look at all the goodies Colleen filled the pretty minty green basket {my fav. color} with!
Paints, glue, a ducky candle that my daughter claimed as hers, ric rack, yummy chocolates, a very sweet faux cuppy cake {I love that Colleen} and the sweetest shadow box filled with fuzzy bunnys and accented with pink and pearls and lace and everything girly, {thats going in my princess suite} she also made a sugar sweet bunny in a box! Silk tulips, stickers, Colleen also sent catnip toys for my kitty girls! That was so sweet.... the girls loved it!
I felt like a kid again... getting such a great easter basket!
Thank you with all my heart Colleen!

This is the basket I sent Colleen....
I was excited to have found the metal daisy basket, that I filled with chocolates that I individually wrapped in vintage wallpaper, a big chocolate bunny,
{ one can never have too much chocolate}
yummy spring smelling candles,

bunny candle holder, a pink fuzzy bunny clip on, handmade easter tags, a chip board photo album, and I made a bunny girl easter wall hanging!
This was such a fun swap.... Thank you Genevieve for being such a great hostess!

I have been really bad with this swap.... {I apologize}

Day 2 is a charm made by Amy @ Crafting by candle light.
Day 3 is a vintage paper mache bunny by Teresa @ Plum water creek.

All of these gifts are so beautiful.... I truly appreciate all the thought and effort that went into this swap!
