May Day & A Giveaway!

I was so happy to participate in Jenny's wonderful May Basket Swap. And even happier when I learned that Jessica was assigned to be my partner!!!

This is the GORGEOUS basket that she made for me!!!

It pained me to take it apart, but I just had to show you all of the treasures that she sent me!!! Jessica has a wonderful sense of style and color. She always makes the most amazing things.


Here is the basket that I mailed her, very similar to the ones that I made last month. I was on a roll.. heehee.


And the goodies inside.


Last year I told you about the sweet May Baskets that the local senior center makes each year. This year I picked up an extra one for a giveaway! I filled it with all kinds of artsy treats from my shop. My plan was to post this on May Day, but it just didn't happen. So I guess this could really be considered a Mother's Day giveaway instead!

Here's a peek of the goodies inside. Velvet leaves, forget me nots, a lace blossom, glitter, tinsel, ribbons, vintage charms and bits, spun cotton mushrooms ~ all in shades of pink, cream, and gold.


If you would like to be entered, just leave a comment on this post. (Be sure to include your email address if you don't have a blog, so I can contact you if you win.) I'll randomly draw a winner on Sunday evening.

Edit: The winner of the May Day Giveaway is
#43 Kris Pare
Congrats!!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!
