Treasures abound

when you swap with the lovely, Cristina.  I joined in Cerri's Easter basket swap for some sweet fun!  We have similar loves and that just makes swapping so much more fun and I love the tiny details that go into it.  Look at this wonderful basket that she sewed--OMG---wish I had the talent.  and the wonderful soft faded flowers in the most perfect shades...

Look at all the wonderful papers and tidbits! The sweet hankie... I adore the little girls so much and cherish this immensely. Beautiful vintage flowers, a lovely fabric flower and tag. A wonderful tin that is already filled with vintage tidbits.  So much inspiration--thank you my sweet friend for a wonderful swap.

Last, I didn't realize I hadn't taken a picture of these sweet eggs so I borrowed Cristina's. She has a sweet tutorial on how to make them.

Just wanted to share what I gave to Cristina.  I asked her if I could do a non traditional basket and what better than a vintage basket purse.  The shade of faded honey is just drool worthy.  I made the flower for the purse out of 2 Southern vintage lady hats in shades of faded cream and aqua; and tucked in a vintage blue bird. 

Treasures tucked inside

We had to make a least one handmade item I made a sweet petite collage and a Spring/Easter tag.  Just love how these came out.

Hope you had a wonderful and sweet filled Easter.
My little one appears to be :)  Candy fiend in the making!

Till next time,
