May Day Basket Swap
Well I did it again, I entered another Swap. Cathy from Treasured Heirlooms really gave me the bug when I entered her 'Amour Valentines' Swap back in February.
This time a May Day Basket Swap hosted by Kari from www.artsymama.blogspot.com Melissa Danner from 'My Favorite Things' is my Swap Partner. Melissa is a Sewer, embroiderer, so this my friends was right up my alley. It was so much Creating her Basket and digging through my own collection of Vintage Fabric & Laces. So I thought I would share this with you.
This Basket I found was just perfect, in Melissa's colors, I added Millinery flowers over the pre~printed flowers on the Basket. Happily I was able to pack all that I wanted to give her.
I made the little Bird's Nest Wreath in the lower left. With Vintage Millinery, ribbons, a little silver heart dangles from the bow at the top and of course Mama Bird is wearing her crown. I may even make a few more for my Boutique.
Then I filled it with Vintage Fabrics, Laces, trims rolled onto Vintage wooden Spools, A Lace covered May Day Flower Jar filled with flowers, A Organza Bag filled with Satin Roses, Butterflies, Sequin Strawberries, La Patisserie Towel Dessert, etc. The last view shows more of the Basket with the contents spread out.
I hope you all enjoyed this as I enjoyed sharing it with you!!
I hope you all have a Happy May Day too!
