Easter Treats Swap

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I hope your Easter was pleasant.  We had the most gorgeous weather combined with a nice simple dinner with my Mom and Dad topped off with homemade Blackberry pie with vanilla ice cream--YUMMO.. Absolute favorite--the berries were so sweet. 

I took Mom over to my favorite store here, The Fresh Market, which is a combo of local fresh fruits and veggies coupled with gourmet goods.  I really recommend them if you have one in your area.  Small store but everything is always fresh, and they have an old fashioned butcher meat area, then some prepared foods to take home.  Love that I can get just what I need especially with the meat choices.  On the the sweets!

 Cassandra hosted an Easter Treats Swap with old fashioned paper egg cartons as the container.  My partners were the sweet talented-- Holly and Julie Ann.  The boxes are adorable and oh, was I spoiled with sweet treats!! Thank you ladies --my little one and I enjoyed oohh and ahhhing over everything!

From Holly ( I adore everything but the top, and the sweet bunny and lamb are my favorites):

 I just had to share the handmade card--love this sweet girl.  Reminds me of mine.

From Julie Ann ( I absolutely adore this gorgeous antique wedding cap she parted with! I already hung it up on my inspiration board--it is so sweet.) 

And this is what I sent them.  I took a handmade crochet flower and sewed my fabric posey with it, then expanded it with lace, dried flowers, and vintage bobs and pearls.  I love how full and textural istbecame.  I handmade these sweet bags from vintage curtain fabric, dabber of paint, and ribbon with dried flowers and my favorite this spring, the vintage daisy.  The colors just speak to me this year, the blues, whites, and feminine laces.  LOVE! 

This is one of my favorite stamps-made each a pocket with a note inside.

I hope you enjoyed all the goodies! Off to bed--Night all.
