Easter Swap ~ Off to Italy!

I am in an Easter Swap with Monica at The White Bench . Since Monica lives in Italy and I live in Canada I thought I should mail my package early. It will be in the mail today!

I am happy with how my Easter goodies came together to make a pretty display. This post is a "spoiler" so if you want your package contents to be a surprise Ms. Monica . . . you shouldn't scroll down any further.

The secret is out : )

I know Monica loves Blue and White so I tried to include these colors.

I used raised floral lace instead of a basket, so it looks like the rabbits are in a garden.

Both bunnies are holding blue flowers.

The Easter Egg is decorated with Blue and White Millinery

Monica did mention she is on a diet and did not want any chocolate. I think Easter and Christmas should be the official cheat on your diet days! . . . . so I did include two ever-so-tiny chocolate bunnies.

I added a sheer white vintage hanky with blue embroidery and the cutest mini clothes-peg with felt petals and a button daisy.

Happy Easter Monica!

Enjoy your goodies. I hope they arrive quickly and safely.

Hi Karen...thanks so much for visiting and for your kind comments...and in answer to the "cold" question...yes, we in the Great White North need the sun, green grass and pretty flowers right about now!!

Your gift is darling...she will love it! And I do love your little card. Reminds me of my sister and I when we were kids.

Have a great day!
Hugs, Nancy

Lovely blog; just dropped in after my daughter sent me a post of the tiny kittens that dropped in at your place. We lost our Elly just last November and this past week she is driving me crazy for another cat!!!!! What to do.....hehehe!
Anyhow I thought I say thank you for posting about Etsy....still working on getting noticed.
p.s. I'm sure Monica will luv her gifts, especially the lace garden.

Hugs Annabelle

Hi Karen, the lady at the post office was concerned about the sand and lavender I use for stuffing, and the lead shot that I use also. My basket was too big, the cost would be too much, but I came up with something else, I am very excited to get it shipped out. I know she will love your gifts!!!
