Easter Basket Swap

My Easter Basket Swap package arrived last Thursday from Mary Lea of Mumsie's Musings and oh boy! Did she ever spoil me!  Just look at all this wonderful Easter time goodness!  I absolutely love it all, but the one thing that really touched my heart is the picture Mary Lea took from my blog of my Grandma.  She printed the picture and put it in a beautiful silver frame.  What an incredibly thoughtful gift to include! 

Grandma's picture has already found her way to my desk at work~

I just had to show you the giant box all this goodness came in.  Wow!  And it was stuffed to the brim.  What a spoiled brat I am!
Mary Lea made this super sweet fabric basket and I'm pretty sure that these cute bunny buttons are made of Shrinky Dinks.  I LOVE it! 

Isn't this wreath one of the cutest things you've ever seen?  Adorable!  The wreath is wrapped in brown paper and the flowers and bunny are all fabric.  SEW darn cute!  Mary Lea really went all out with the handmade goodness she included. 

Here is the wreath, hanging on our front door and bringing springtime cheer to the front porch.  Makes me smile everytime I walk through the front door!

Easter napkins and plates for our picnic, candies, tea, a handmade card, a fun Busy Woman's cookbook,  a lemon pound cake candle, the cutest every chick and easter egg salt and pepper shakers, bright fun easter socks, a hopping little fuzzy chick, wooden tulips among so many other things.  When I say that Mary Lea completely spoiled me, I mean it! 

Thank you so much, Mary Lea.  I cannot tell you enough how much I love this wonderful package you spent so much time putting together for me! 
Hoppy Easter!

WOW! How awesome - you did rake it in ;-)

I hate to have missed out on such a good swap but as you can see by the lack of my posting ... life is a bit busy.

Hopping everything is well in your world ;-)
