Easter is in the air! Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday....Easter is in the air!! I have been busy making fabulous little Easter baskets. Each basket is made from a vintage Jello mold!! They are filled with sweet little Easter goodies!!





Each basket has a vintage Easter image, and is filled with both vintage and new bits and bobs.
I used sweet vintage ribbon to finish them off. A light dusting of glitter brings them to life.
I must add that the inspiration for these sweet little cups was Diane of Saturday Finds. She did a wonderful tutorial on making Jello Molds into little Easter baskets. She is a fabulous talent, and I thank her for sharing her ideas! After a whole lot of encouraging words from my friends, I have decided that my Easter goodies are going to be listed in my Etsy shop. I should have them available this weekend. Thanks for the sweet words of encouragement. Thank you Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting another fabulous PInk Saturday. It's such a please to visit everyone, and have people stop by to say hello!!

Have a wonderful day.
