Ok, so now that we have that important business out of the way, I wanted to share with you the basket I made for Cassandra( http://anartfuladventure.typepad.com/ )for the Easter basket swap. I used a vintage bicycle basket and embellished it with some vintage laces and pale blue silk ribbon.
I filled it up with lots of vintage goodies, some lacy paper mache eggs that I showed you in my previous post, and other things.
I filled the paper mache eggs with various vintage trinkets. This one had sewing notions, the larger egg had lots of vintage millinery, and one other egg had vintage jewelry parts. (also Cassandra's photo)
Here is the lovely basket Cassandra sent me! (all of the photos of her basket were taken by her, I haven't been able to take photos yet and didn't want to wait to share this any longer) Cassandra painted a little wooden crate a soft blue color and embellished it with lots of millinery flowers and petals. And obviously, she filled it full!
Thank you to everyone that entered the Easter basket giveaway! I'll do another one in June when I celebrate my shop's anniversary. :)
