Alison Gibbs said...

Hi Jessi thanks for visiting my blog.
What fabulous easter pretties you have set up on your table.
You have been busy with your swaps. I think if you find it hard to part with the swap goodies then they have to be special cos you want them yourself.
Have a fun weekend.

Hi Jessi, you've been a bus gal with all your swaps. Love that sweet little nest in the sap bucket. I've got to get the finishing touches on mine and get it mailed out. As usual, your holiday table decorations are exquisite! I've got to start putting mine out since Easter is so early this year!
