Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap PARTY 2010

MIss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap was a blast I wanted to do a new post but I just finished hosting a suprise party and I am pooped I apologize and hope you can understand :)
YOu worked so hard and it was a blessing I loved every minute of it!

Here are the baskets I made, please forgive my pictures....

Well I am a very Blessed and Lucky girl today!
I have already received BOTH of my Easter baskets from amazing swap partners!
Friday I recieved My Basket form the sweet Cathy at 

Do you see my Darling basket Cathy made? is that Gorgeous or what! the amazing details of the chick and jelly beans and one of her fabulous cupcakes! What sweet crackled eggs too!
And I have to tell you, I have never been a yellow lover till this year and it's all Cathy's fault! She did a post a while back about a beautiful piece she created using yellow and aqua and I fell in LOVE!
I was smitten with these colors and this piece, some one bought it too quickly before I could get to it!
Yellow is so happy ya know :)
so in my swap package from Cathy I was so spoiled I could hardly believe it!
Oh Yummy French Macaroon green tea soap!
My favorite Vice~ CHOCOLATE! love the wrapping!
Oh and this lovely sachet adorned with the crown jewels and sparkly bunny ornament!
Cathy I LOVE it all so much!

And here is my package of sweet goodies from darling Debi at Life in my Studio
Hmmm what could this be? 
Ta Dah!

Oh look at the fabulous easter basket made by Debi! With yummy chocolate eggs for me!
A lovely Lavender basket adorned with precious paper roses and more!
A sweet cream butterfly pin...
A whimsical easter stamp and fun ribbon...
And a Gorgeous Vintage brooch with purple rhinestones :)
Debi I adore it ALL!

I thought i was doing so good going to mail my packages today 5 days before the mail date, but as you can see my swap partner are just so fabulous I already have my packages from them!
Well here is a peek of the treats going out today....
I hope you like them girls!

You are so welcome. I'm glad you love everything I sent you, it was my pleasure.

I'm not a big yellow person either, but I've been in the yellow and aqua mood lately. They look really pretty together.

Can't wait til your package arrives my friend! It looks awesome.

Denise Marie said...

Wow, now I wonder if I decorated my swap "baskets" well enough that I've joined in this spring. I put mine in shoe boxes that I stuffed to the gills. I'm learning stuff from ya girlie.

Valarie said...
