Swap Happy


I say "Three Cheers for Sandy" our beloved Hostess of what I believe be known furthermore as our favorite swap ever, The Lake Street Easter Swap.



I was so excited to be paired with Susan, the reader who sent me the wonderful Valentine's Box filled with things she just knew I would love.Such a wonderfully shaped basket filled to the brim with things unseen but hinted at with Cute As Can Be containers.


Inside the blue egg was nestled a vintage bluebird whose egg released cheerful confetti all over my craft desk. How clever!


My characters couldn't help but come in for a closer look at all the craft supplies that came spilling out of the tiny pink box.




As with Susan's Valentine box, there seemed to be no end to lovely things contained within her basket. I had never before seen vintage seam binding. It is fabulously crinkly, and I have already used all of the yellow on my little Nursery Animals.


I hope you are smiling ear to ear at sight of this sweet Spoolie. EAK! the plaid body and matching hat flowers. The red shoes and pearls! Why this could be me! I'm known for always wearing pearls.


As Susan doesn't yet have a blog, I am sharing my gifts to her We must convince her to begin on to better get to know her.. A Wiltons paper Bundt cake form becomes my container to hold my Easter Spoolies.


Susan admired my Spring Bluebird; so I have tucked in one for her as well as one of my bath confetti Easter ornaments. Darn! I forgot to include instructions: "Don't Get Wet!"


Everything in it's place, I used plastic eggs to fill the bottom of the basket to lift the contents into view. Thank you Susan for being my partner and bringing such joy to my day!

Susan needs to start blogging. We all enjoy meeting new friends through you. Such lovely treasures from each of you. Easter hugs.

PS. We are in snowy traverse city this weekend. Thinking of you, Elizabeth. We are celebrating Josie's five year adoption anniversary at one of our favorite cities.

Hip hip hooray for Sandy! That was so much fun.

What darling things you gave and received Elizabeth, just the cutest! Did you share your spoolie somewhere? I seem to have missed it and it (they! triplets!) look so sweet.

Please know you're in my thoughts - I don't know if you've posted the date of your surgery?

Can't wait until you're feeling better and return.
