We had never met before so this was a double treat. I met a new blogger that I adore and I got a lovely bunch of gifts too.
I thought this would be a fun thing to participate in as I remember making May baskets and bringing home flowers from the woods and hanging them on my Momma's door each May day. Even years after I was grown I would always send her May baskets from the local florists. It was my way of sending her my love and a piece of spring to brighten her day. So this swap was special in the memories it brought to mind.
Look at this lovely piece of artwork Maija made for me!
I absolutely love love love it, Maija! It is so gorgeous!
The antique couples postcard, the ribbons, flowers, pearls and lovely wrapping is such a beautiful meeting of artistic soul and lover of Vintage items.
The cone was huge! I mean huge! It is a wonderous 30 plus inches long from hanging ribbons to the bottom of the lace covered tip. ( I already had my hubby hang it in the corner just above my computer so that I can enjoy it each day.) Inside she lined it with lovely sheet music and filled it with all kinds of goodies that I adore. There were four packs of gorgeous glitters, antique buttons, ribbons, a precious small peat pot paper basket, a note card pack, and a pad of paper to help me keep track of my want to do list, There was a cupcake magnent, and the cutest lollipop I have ever seen. It was made with a lolly stick and wound with the cutest pink/white ribbon cord. (How cute!)
Look at these beautiful buttons. The large green one is going to be made into a bracelet right away! Maija, Thank you so very very much for my lovely gifts. It was fun swapping with you and I hope you will enjoy the May basket I sent to you. It was fun putting it all together and thinking about you during our preparations. Let's do it again soon!
