Even more finished baskets!


What fun baskets this year! Winston’s basket is so far the largest boy basket I’ve made at a diameter of 14 inches, AND the first one to have a little lamb on it! I also included some fun spring flowers in blue, yellow and white, what is spring without Lilly of the Valley, Dafodils and crocuses?!

Jemma’s basket-oh, where to begin?! Jemma’s mommy had an unusual shaped basket-the handles go from front to back insted of side to side. So, to get the most of the bunny and scene on the liner I made the exterior liner detachable. The outer liner still has side “ties” in this case of a beautiful wired pink satin ribbon with white mini puffballs, but it also has button holes along the upper edge so it can be attached to the inner liner with little pink satin bows. Jemma’s mother knew she wanted an extra special basket and liner for her little girl-and was willing to wait to get it till this year when I wasn’t able to do it last year. Thank you so much Rebecca for remembering me and for letting me make your little sweetie’s basket!!!  Jemma’s basket is much bigger than the standard baskets and oval in shape. It measures 19inches from side to side, 14 inches from front to back and is 9 inches deep. Lots of room for presents from the Easter Bunny!

Ah, Ellington’s basket! Ellington is Berkely’s new baby sister! Their mommy purchased one of my baskets last year for big sister Berkley and were wonderful enough to come back to me for another one for baby Ellington! Thank you so much!!! I was so excited to use this adorable pale blue satin ribbon with mini white puffball edging and be able to coordinate it  with the robins egg blue interior liner. The multi colored flowers on this liner really set off the pretty blues, and there is no doubt that it is girly!!!

How fun to do the baskets for all three children! Esme, Oisin, and Oliver. Esme’s is in a soft pretty pink cotton and shows off a little bunny playing in pink lilly of the valley flowers, Oisin’s inner liner is in a soft blue with his bunny holding an Easter egg with other Easter eggs hidden in the grass, Oliver’s inner liner is a forest green with his little bunny holding a carrot and more carrots along the scene by his name. All three liners have button side closures of coordinating colors and also coordinating mini puffball trim.

Thank you again to all of my fantastic customers. I truly am blessed being able to make such special baskets for your little lovies!!!!Happy Easter to all and please keep checking back for more finished baskets!

I’ve got lots more in the works and some fantastic ones already lined up for after the holiday for those great customers who think my baskets are worth the wait! Thank you SOO much!

So far this year I’ve made the biggest baskets ever! Several 14 inch ones, one 16 inch one and a couple that will be coming out that are more oval and 19X13-but with the handle front to back not side to side! I’ve also got a basket that will have a pumpkin, one with a monkey, and even one with another little piggie!

Hampton’s Easter Blocks!


Oh, I loved making these special blocks! The blocks colors were picked to coordinate with Hampton’s room colors, theme, and bedding-a light sand, ivory, white, dark brown, light blue, and the goldish yellow. Hampton’s name is spelled out on the blocks in the “kindergarten way”-with the H being capital and the rest of the letters being lower case. The whole alphabet is represented on these blocks, each letter showing the upper as well as the lower case letter. There are several special items on Hampton’s blocks-a garbage truck-one of his favorite toys, a pie-for his silly lovie nick name “Hammie Pie”! The animals are picked because Hampton has the “Itzazoo” bedding and he has lots of animals on his bedding and in his room! He also really loves this ice cream toy truck, its his favorite truck to play with.

The animal squares and other pictures also have the item’s name written in appropriate letters (upper case or lower case where they should be!). These blocks even have numbers with the correct amount of dots coordinating with each number-up to 12.

John Dodson’s basket!

I love being able to show off all of baby to be John Dodson’s special Easter Basket! I love the soft khaki colors-the inner liner that extends to the outside, the sandy color furry bottom of the liner, and especially the wheat stalks and birdies all through the front of the white outer liner.

Little Bunny Alli Claire

Check out this little bunny! Is she the cutest, or what?! Thank you Marie so much for sharing your little sweetie with us! Seeing her with her delighted grin just makes me smile!

This basket was custom made for this little girlie, with a white hand embroidered bunny, lots of flowers done in silk ribbon and even a mini bunny in a fancy dress with her very own mini basket! Alli Claire’s name is done in a dotted wrapped stitch and has two sweet birdies sitting on the “A” and the “e”.  Marie wanted the basket to be a light aqua to go with some of the flowers on the outer liner-it looks fantastic! What fun little Alli Claire will have each year searching for eggs with her special basket! Thank you so much Marie for being so great to work with! Have a Great Easter!!
