Bunny Hop Swap

So do you remember when I blogged about a fun little Easter Basket Swap from Life from Pippy's Perspective and Deals, Steals & Heels? I thought not. Here's the link to my blog post. And below is what I received (!) from my super fantastic swap partner, Summer. Summer and I were supposed to get together when I was in NYC a couple of weeks ago but I wasn't feeling well so I cancelled. I was really bummed that we didn't get to see each other. She is so sweet and thoughtful and is going through a really hard time right now. I wanted to talk to her all about adoption since she is just starting the process right now. She was extremely generous to provide me with all this happy loot. I was beaming as I ripped into the box and dug through all the goodies.

A view of everything...

So most of it was in that cute green ribbon trimmed box with little chicks popping out of the bow but not all of it fit! There were mini baking cups, so sweet cupcake ribbon, that funky and most awesome coral and blue starburst cocktail ring, blue rose earrings, a little wood carved Statue of Liberty (which I really love since I didn't buy anything while I was in NYC...),

a tea cup and kettle print (we were supposed to meet for tea since we aren't coffee drinkers), flower stickers, fun notecards, a 'joy' silver stone, more fun girly notecards, twisty crayons (AJ wants these), nail polish in Lucky Lucky Lavender, ducky pez, honeysuckle spray perfume,

Garden fairies stickers (LOVE), veggie chalk with google eyes (AJ thought it was funny- looking forward to using it!), summer fruit lip balm, cute socks, a big chocolate bunny, a fleur de lis wax seal, flower print soap that makes my office smell like a rose garden (it's not in any close up photos, sorry!),

New York City t-shirt (we saw these everywhere when we were there!), a bright and cheery orange umbrella (I REALLY needed an umbrella!),

AND these so sweet fairy bookplates that are being sent by the etsy seller direct from England. I LOVE these bookplates and plan to put them in my most treasured books and even one on the back of my Kindle cover. I may even give a couple to some fairy loving girls I know... ;) Look at her wings! They are books- how clever is that?!?

I sent Sum a Dove chocolate bunny, a bag of the raspberry and blackberry gummies (her fave), some tea, a couple of CD mixes, a little box of chocolate truffles- there is a lady bug (dk choc and raspberry), pig (toffee & milk choc) , Easter egg (milk choc- I think) and a honey lavender caramel (the boring little square), a box of Summer notecards, a petal fairy, LSU flower, a stone bracelet that I made, a 'stache tastic' mirror and a ton of other chocolate in that box. The little gift card that I sent with it had a bunny with a mustache on it.
If you'd like to see what everyone else got in their baskets you can find out here. Thanks Summer! YOU ROCK GIRL! Love you!! xoxoxo
