Anyone for a Picnic?

As promised in my last post I am sharing some photos of the finished gift basket I put together using the gorgeous products I purchased on EDSCF9692tsy. (see link in previous post!)



I added some cupcake style candles and a little notebook. I thought the gingham fabric made it look more like a picnic basket which is what I was trying to achieve!


I also put together another gift basket this time for my sister in law who loves her garden:

This one was filled with all garden related treats. A jar of tea that looks like dried flower petals, a lavender bag, some seed envelopes, candles, clay herb plant markers, a photo frame, a small sandwich tray and much more including some hand felted flowers that I made!

Both baskets were well received and I had fun putting them together!

Have you ever done anything like this? If so what did you include?

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine and having a great summer!

Some Yummy Purchases from Etsy!

Moisturising Lotion Bars Cashmere creme cake soap slice

I am making up a gift basket as a thank you for my sister in law and came across these yummy looking bath treats on etsy.

I thought they would be perfect to put together with some cupcake candles in a “Picnic” basket. The shop owner put together a lovely gift set for me and I was so pleased with the products and wonderful service I received that I wanted to share it here with you!

Here is the link to the store:


I will try to remember to photograph the completed basket once it is done!
