My second package arrived yesterday from my sweet swap partner Marian Hicks. You know how when you open the lid of a box and your heart starts racing because all you can see is your favorite colors bursting out? Well, that's what it was like for me. But, that was just the beginning as you can see from my scrumptious photos below Marian spoiled me rotten and I loved every minute of it.

All I can say to Marian is thank you, thank you, thank you for making this swap so much fun. Happy Easter my friend.

Just look at these glorious treasures. Everything from vintage jewels, to candy, vintage ribbon to adorable mushrooms. The variety of treasures were spectacular and believe it or not, I've already used some of my goodies. And of course, I ate the chocolate immediately! Yum.

Marian and I were well suited partners to say the least. This is what I sent her and I so enjoyed making it. Definitely in my element with the color scheme. So pastel and so springy.

A big thank you to Cassandra for hosting this wonderful swap! Happy Easter Cassi! xo

Cassandra from An Artful Adventure hosted a adorable Easter Egg Carton swap several weeks ago. Each of us had two partners. We had to paint and decorate an Egg Carton, fill it up with awesome treasures, wrap it really pretty and send it off to our Easter Partners. We choose our favorite themes, favorite colors and things we love to collect and craft with. I had a blast.

Let me share with you what I sent to Robin Martin and what great treasures she sent to me. This was so much fun because Robin loves Retro and bright colors which took me right out of my comfort zone immediately, but I had a blast creating for her.

Look at the wonderful Easter Egg Carton I received from Robin. Lots and lots of fun treasures from pastel ribbons, to a pink rhinestone bling. A beautifully hand made gift card and a wonderful vintage Easter Ephemera Post Card (which I LOVE). My favorite item in my secret package was that yellow and rhinestone RING. Yup, it's a ring, it fits me perfect and I can't wait to wear it.

A lovely glittery rhinestone brooch adorned the top of the box and there was a stunning pink crochet and pearls Easter egg inside. I know exactly where I will be tucking my lovely treasures.
Thank you Robin for all your goodies.
Happy Easter to you and enjoy your Retro Treasures.

Well my little peeps, I'll be posting my other swap partner's goodies and the fabu lot of treasures I received from her tomorrow just in time for Easter and Pink Saturday.
Til then, have a great day ladies.
