Spring Cloche Swap!!!

I signed up to participate in Sandy and Deb's Spring Cloche Swap.
Sandy blogs at 521 Lake Street Blog , and Deb blogs at Garage Sale Gal .
I'm sure glad they decided to host this fun swap, which was to create a
spring or Easter cloche with a dollar store plastic wine glass.  Okay!
I was lucky enough to be paired with Linda who blogs at LBP Sews.
Linda is a fellow Virginian, a very talented seamstress and crafter, and has such a fun sense
of humor.  We live at opposite ends of the state, but maybe we can meet "in person" one day.
I know we would have some fun!
So, my huge package came yesterday!  Decorated with little egg stickers.  :)
LOOK at all these goodies! 
Linda treated me so well!  She was too generous!  Love the vintage plant pick (from Hong Kong) it's fabulous.  Easter napkins, and cupcake set.  Lots of candy, yes, lots ;) .
Can you see all the goodies? OK, let me help.
 Hmmm, some of that chocolate is left, lol. 
Look at this set of egg cups, so precious!  Lovely vintage enamel flower pin, be still my heart!
 Gorgeous vintage ceramic dish with raised flowers, perfect for spring.
How about this ribbon & egg pin!  Well pin a ribbon on me!
Wore it today, will explain at the end of post. *
Aw, crocheted basket with her crafted little chick, bunny & carrot.
So cute!!!
Not 1 cloche, but 2!  Linda made me an Easter theme & Spring theme cloche.
Adorable, love them both....lucky me. 
I really enjoyed swapping with Linda, and we got our packages
within a day of each other, so we got to share our excitement.
 Here's a photo of what I sent to Linda. You can see more over at her
blog, as she just did her post (she's so funny!).
Thanks so much Linda!!!
*Health Update:  I want to share my good news here.  I asked for your prayers and positive
thoughts a couple weeks ago, and you sure came through for me.  I had my doctor's appointment today and got my biopsy report ~ the results were good, I'm fine.  When we got home I did a little happy dance and pinned on the ribbon Linda sent. Yup, pin a ribbon on me!  Thanks so much for your support and prayers bloggie friends!  You're the best!
