Easter Basket...

Here is the basket that I'm going to use to hold all the "stuff" I'm going to be sending to my swap partner for the Vintage Easter swap. I need to get some lovely ribbon to wrap around the handle... I love the shape of this basket. I've got a vintage basket (that I'm keeping for myself I'm no dummy!) that is shaped just like this one. Here is the before photo of the basket~ I also picked up some chicks & rabbits from the dollar store. I especially love the chicks... the little chicks hop :-) I added some embellishments and taaaaaa daaaaa instant cauuuute!! Some are going to my swapping partner and some are going on my hutch! I may have to go buy some more of those chicks...they are so darn cute!! Don't they look happier now? There is still time if anyone is interested in signing up for this vintage Easter swap, you've got until March 8th.... go on over to Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly and sign up! Hurry!

Those little chicks are so cute! I'm going to have to go check out my Dollar Tree for some. I can drive my cats nutso with those little wind-up sweeties. I like how you "dressed" them up in formalwear. Im sure your swap partner will love them. I really like what you did with the basket, too. Super pretty.
Hope you're having a great week; I'm sure you are, especially with those yummy-looking brownies you made.

The chicks are so adorable. I'll have to check my dollar store. You have such a knack at makeovers.
I love the basket, too.
