Miss Rheas Easter Basket Goodies

I participated in Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Exchange. 
We were to take two yogurt cups and decorate them to exchange with two partners. 
Here is what I received!
Mary of Marys Meanderings sent me this lovely basket with a detachable broach.  She set the cup upon a lid base to raise it up so that she could attach this gorgeous trim to the bottom.  Then she added a rim at the top out of another cup.  She then attached a beautiful rose fabric because she knew I liked roses and pink.  Isn't it beautiful???
Inside of my box from Mary I got a sweet lamb, an egg topped with a pink chick wearing a crown and a silver cross.  There also was a stand alone cross that she made and covered with a sheet of Christian music. 
Look at this cute pink chick!!!  I love it!
Inside of my package was a card and this bees wax lip gloss all decorated with a lovely paper rose.  She has been raising bees and this is only one of the items that she is coming up with. 
Thank YOU, Mary for the sweet Easter items.  They are so full of love and faith that it is hard to explain how precious they are.

The very same day,  Bertie of Aunt Mays Cottage sent me her lovely swap basket.
We were only to include five things in our packages to our partners.
Bertie made my basket from the same yogurt cup idea but hers was covered with another pink rose fabric, plus darling handmade fabric roses that was topped with a beaded handle.  (Of course she knew I was a beader and loved roses!)  Isn't it wonderfu!  The basket sets on a small doily and was filled with chocolate eggs, Easter chocolate bunnies and this sweet wooden spool of antique rose trim.


It came with these lovely tags and a beaded key chain.  (love that!) Plus a hand made, hand stamped ribbon that is about an inch wide.  (I am so sorry that I did not get a picture of it)
It had this sweet little girl card that moves to put her hat away. 
Last but not least it contained this antique post card that belonged to her family!Thank you so much Bertie!  I love each and every item that you so thoughtfully put into my package.
 It is such a pleasure meeting you and Mary through Miss Rheas Easter Basket Exchange.Thank you so much for the reminder that our Savior has Risen and that HE IS LORD!
Happy Easter, every single one of you in blogland.

Sorry for the quick post but the girls are setting in the car waiting for the trip to the beach.

It was so much fun being one of your swap partners. I had a great time creating treasures just for you, dear.

I hope this is the start of a beautiful on-line friendship as we have so much in common.

Thanks again for the wonderful goodies in my swap.
