Easter Tree, Baking Swap & Surprises.......

Greeting bloggers. I've been a very busy bee! Here is my Easter Tree, what do you think? I was pleased with it. My nephew helped me collect the branches today, and I spent about 20 mins putting it together. Can you spot the Easter Bunny?...........................

There he is!

I didn't get much of a chance to get on the Internet last night, I was busy finishing my Easter Spring swap goodies. So Ruby's Mama and Crafty Trundler they are now winging there way off to you. You should receive them tomorrow.
Now a little while back Myself and A Thrifty Mrs decided to do a baking themed swap. I forgot to photograph mine but if you go to the SCC Forum you can see them there. Guess what came in the post for me yesterday.

I was very excited at this point. Look at all those goodies wrapped in pretty pink tissue and tied in very useful Ric Rak (us crafty gals love Ric Rak).

COR look at this little stash..........................

And theres more.......How pretty is this little vintage pinny.

And some handmade bunting........................

EAT, I don't need any encouraging there lol.........
Lovely goodies. The Tea cosy and oven glove will come in very useful. I have some parma violets to scoff. I haven't seen these in years. Cinnamon sticks are essential in a girls baking cupboard. A cute little addy book. Two Thrifty recipe cards and don't forget the Ric Rak.
Thanks SOOOOOOOOOO Much Mrs Thrifty.

Now I was chatting to Bloomin Myrtle on the forum in the week and she said she'd kindly send me some chop sticks to stick geese on (Don't go phoning the RSPCA there in the Tilda Books. LOL) So she did but she sent me loads and some fabric, pretty gingham ribbon, a lovely handmade brooch and a handmade Easter Card.

Thanks BM, it was very kind of you. The generosity of bloggers never fails to amaze me. I'm so chuffed. A very happy Pixie today.
Hope you had a nice day folks.
