easter swap goodies!

6 from DEB
Did I tell you that I love Easter and all the sweet little Eastery springy things that go along with it?  all the pastel colors and the cheerful little birdies and fuzzy little bunnies?   oh maybe you already knew that!  well someone knew that!  My partner Deb (garage sale girl) sent me a huge box of awesome Easter treats!

Sandy's swap was to have a main attraction, an Easter spoolie!  Deb did up the sweetest spool with a little birds nest and two happy little birdies chirping away on top.  so sweet isnt it?

Then she filled the box with so many other things.  a cute little felt bunny, a german egg container, big chunky carrots that are now sitting happily with some stuffed bunnies!  Look at the birdie clips! so stinking cute!

Deb even included the sweetest little nest with a little soap egg.. just precious!  There were vintage cards and a vintage bunny candle and the cutest little vintage chickie, that I just love!

here is the spoolie and a little bunny basket that i made for Debs package.  she recieved her package tonight, or I wouldnt have been able to post these yet!
I hope everyone has a great saturday.  I will start my day doing some shopping, then I'll be at the school my daughter teaches at painting scenery for the musical she is directing. (Anything Goes), then probably a little cleaning and then tomorrow night off to see another high school musical that one of her friends is directing.
Sunday, I'll be having everyone over for Tiffanys birthday dinner.   I need three day weekends!
 I'll be back! 
sweet dreams!

Deb did such a great job on your easter exchange. Love your treasures too. We took the girls away for the weekend to celebrate or adoption anniversary. We are up north in snow country but the hotel has a water park. Have a great weekend.

I love the spoolies that you made too! Yes, this was a really fun swap! I'm going to post what I got soon.
Have a great weekend Viv!

Thanks, Viv for doing such a great Easter swap with me! I'll be posting mine later this weekend!

My gosh- What a treasure trove of special treasures! What fun- you really got a beautiful assortment of things there. I love the things you made, too. You gals never cease to amaze me. Hmmmm...Zero WW points for that candy bar? Really????;>) Have a good night- xo Diana

Great little treasures, Vivian! I did a swap, too, and will have to do a post. I forgot to take pictures of what I sent, so hopefully my partners will take pictures. Sounds like you have a busy weekend. My son is coming for a visit this weekend with his girlfriend and we're looking forward to that. It would be nice if the weather was a bit nicer.

Kai said...

You are going to turn me into an Easter person yet, Vivvy! I think ALL the swap goodies are so darling! Hope you have a FUN weekend (however BUSY!) and remember to do at least ONE thing JUST FOR YOU! LOOOOOVE YOU! XXXOOO!

Wow~you both made such pretty spoolies, and sent such generous packages. Thanks for sharing!

Now where can I buy one of those 0 point Nut Goodie's? :) Pam

I see you are smack dab in the middle of the cutest Easter Parade ever. I love German anything....eggs, gnomes, their homes, sausage...I'd like to follow the Easter Parade right back to Germany and take a stopover at Deb's!

Have a fun-filled weekend Viv. I agree we all need three day weekends. One to play, one for errands and one day to do nothing. I had a weekend like that last weekend, I was so busy I only had a couple of hours rest. I'm happily working three jobs and my goal is down to only two as soon as possible.

I got your message on asking for a catalog and I will send them to you on Monday. Thank you for your kindness in asking for one. I'm loving Celebrating Home and last week my first gal signed up to be on my team. But beyond that, I'm loving the product and the company and the fun of it all.

Happy St. Patty's Day, may good luck follow you everywhere and never leave your side.
