Easter Swap With PRH Sister

Hello, Welcome, on this day after Easter! Today I thought I would share with you an Easter Swap that I joined in on. I belong to a group called Pretty Romantic Homes. It's a group of artistic woman who share their talents of decorating and creating. I was lucky to have my friend Steph as my partner.
She cross stitched me this adorable little picture. I just love cross stitch so this was very special to me.

A pretty little egg with lots of bling!!!! Roses, pearls, feathers all on glittered egg.
A pretty little topiary bunny!

A special little treat of a hand decorated cookie! Thank you Steph for all these wonderful gifts!
Below are the pretties that I made for Steph, a cross stitched pillow.

Another close up of the corner with vintage millinary flowers sprinkled with some German Glass Glitter.
Pretty little silk ribbon embroidered sachet, filled with lavender.

Also a fabric gift bag filled with Lintz white chocolate, roses and my first attempt at making a tag.

Close up of little chick tag made from a vintage easter card that I got years ago.
Scarf and ribbon rose bows for Stephs sweet little puppies! If you go to Stephs blog you can see pics of her adorable little puppies wearing my creations!

One was for Stephs little Rosie and the other for her Mom's little Precious.

Hand made card that I made also from a vintage post card.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I loved sharing with you! Please come back again! Have a wonderful day!

Hi Shirl!! How fun seeing the pretties we made for each other. I feel so blessed to have you for my sweet PRH sister! I loved making things for you. And I will certainly treasure all my gifts from you forever!! I thought I might have to "frisk" my mom before she left yesterday ~ she loves all your goodies, too! Will post pics of Precious soon with her new hairbow!!
