I was happy to arrive home from work yesterday and find my May Day Basket swap package on the living room table. My swap partner had been swamped with just about everything imaginable so I knew that my package was running a little late and therefore didn’t know when it was going to arrive.
I opened it up to find the sweetest little basket filled with various goodies like homemade mint (from her own garden last summer) apple jelly, two vintage embroidered doilies – one with a sunbonnet lady and the other with a cute basket of flowers, a vintage pair of screw on earrings, some lace and small pearls for craft projects, a journal with a calla lily on the front cover, an adorable stamp with a little girl picking up seashells, and a little card with tulips on the front.
Here is the picture of all the goodies spread out for you to see.
And displayed in the basket. As you can see, I attached the earrings to the pretty butterfly ribbon that was tied to the basket handle.
This is my last swap for a little while. I’ve been swapping like crazy for just over a year now and need a break (that and I’m super busy getting things ready for summer shows) so I decided this would be nice one to finish up this swapping season. We’ll see if something perks my interest again or if I’ll just move on to something different. Thanks to all the wonderful hostesses and swapping partners out there that made each swap so great.
