Spring Basket Swap

I participated in Rhea's Spring Basket swap.
The baskets were to be created using a small yogurt cup,
and be accompanied by 5 small gifts.

Here are the baskets I created for my partners.

My basket for Rhea





My basket for Mercedes





This is the basket Mercedes created for me.


She used the sweetest soft blue fabric, and added a beautiful
vintage ribbon and jewelry piece to the front.


Lots of lace around the basket, and the most
beautiful vintage flowers and butterfly on
the handle. She also added soft, whispy feathers.

It's just dreamy!


She included sweet little birds, beautiful vintage laces,
vintage sheet music, a vintage tea napkin,
and the sweetest little tea cup canvas.

Thank you Mercedes, I love everything!

Poor Rhea has been having medical problems
and has not been well. I will show her
basket when she is up to finishing.
