First up is my basket from Lisa. We were able to swap in person, so that was fun. We're both going to Karla Nathan's Birdsong III event in June, so there will be several more swaps in our immediate future.
Lisa packaged the little basket so nicely, but I opened it at class before I could take a photo so I've re-staged it here. She distressed and gathered cream crepe paper, wrapped it with rick rack, and added a pink velvet bow and pearls. Inside was a matching match box, two bouquets of the tiny little vintage posies I love so much, the cutest little bird on a spool - adorable - and a sweet fuzzy bunny face with a rhinestone crown pinned to one ear.
My other basket is from Tabitha, who organized the swap. She sent this lovely aqua creation.
Don't you love that tiny "nest" banner and that little glittered bird? She included all of these little things to "feather the nest."
Thank you so much, ladies! This was such an enjoyable swap, and just what I needed to tide me over until it actually feels like spring.
