Mrs. Rhea's Easter Basket Swap Reveal

Happy Easter!!I'm posting this early because I'll be super busy tomorrow but I still wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter. This morning my family and I walked up to our community park and the kids participated in a gigantic Easter Egg Hunt. It was loads of fun, the boys probably got 50 eggs!! There was food and games and the Easter Bunny made an appearance.
Just one of the reasons we love our little community. This year I participated in Mrs. Rhea's Easter Basket swap. We were each given 2 partners and we used recycled yogurt cups as the base for our little baskets. Click on the picture to get the links to all of the lovely participants and see what wonderful creations were made.
My first partner was the lovely Jayme from Flamingbiscuitsonthefarm.
Look at the lovely fabric covered basket and all of the adorable goodies she filled it with. Second, I was partnered with Chery from cheryl-comfort. Such wonderful handmade goodies and a beautiful tin. I really lucked out with my partners. Here's one of the baskets I made. I covered it with Pink Chenille fabric and pleated crepe paper. This one is covered the same but more of a monochromatic theme. I filled them with a vintage bow pin, a mercury glass pink egg, a vintage theme Easter postcard, a vintage Bunny playing card, some fabric and ribbons too.

What a wonderful swap. Thank you ladies. I hope you enjoy your goodies.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday weekend.

xoxo
