Miss Rhea’s Easter Basket Swap Reveal!!

This Easter, I feel so incredibly blessed.  I am so thankful for my friends and family, my new part time job, especially in this economy, the beautiful weather we are having here…  I only wish I could do more to give back!

I love to participate in swaps, as you well know, and today I get to show you the beautiful Easter Baskets I have received!  Are you ready for the picture show?!

FromDeb1 This basket is from Deb!  Isn’t it sweet with the felt egg and gorgeous chenille?  I just love the fabric baskets!

FromDeb2 A perfectly pink felt egg!

FromDebA sweet little flower patterned bunny, a gorgeous vintage Easter postcard, the most adorable bunny and chick figurine, a cute pink bunny cupcake topper, lovely bunny stamp, and a blue bunny ornament!!  Note:  There was also a box of chocolates, but um… they couldn’t be photographed as they hopped into my mouth as soon as they were spied! :)

Thank you so much, Deb, for your beautiful basket and all these delightful treats!!! :D

FromPam  This Easter basket and gifts are from Pam!  She included a sweet bunny, chocolate bunny, and chick figurine, a beautiful handmade cross, a pretty flower bookmark, pink, white and black paper flowers, and beautiful photo cards of photographs she has taken!  They’re just stunning!

FromPam1 A close up of the flowers on the basket handle- aren’t they gorgeous?!?!  I just love them…

FromPam2 And look!!!  A beautiful flower encrusted egg!!!  I am seriously loving this egg!

Thank you so much, Pam, for making such a beautiful swap for me!!

Lastly, I won Shell’s giveaway for one of the extra Easter baskets that she made!

FromShelly Such beautiful details!!!  Let’s have a closer look…

FromShelly2 I am in love with gingham!!  How’d she know :)  And look at those dainty butterflies!

FromShelly1 They’ve laid tiny butterfly eggs as rhinestones on the handle! :)

FromShelly3 As if that wasn’t enough, the basket came with two cute as can be vintage postcards- one finished with sparkling silver glitter!  And candies!!!  Yummmmm.  Which I have been Good, and haven’t eaten yet!!  lol :) 

Thank you so much, Shell, for this generous giveaway gift!!!

I just love Easter, Spring, and the promise of new and renewed life…  I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these beautiful gifts- which I’ll keep out all year round!!!  :)  Thank you for visiting me today and I hope that your Easter is blessed with love and joy!

Just had to stop what I was doing (don't want to tell you too much as I'm finishing your basket this afternoon, but it involves stringing tiny pearls)and see what you have been up to.

I love these sweet baskets that you have received! I've seen others' blogs who received such little treasures through Miss Rhea's swap as well, and it looks like it was a fabulous experience.

Hope you are having a blessed day...
