English Garden - Baskets and Wreath For Sale

It has been raining the whole day. The plan was to take the kids to the zoo but since the weather is not permitting, it's a perfect opportunity for me to finish up on my craftwork while the kids nap. Some friends have requested to purchase these items but since I made extras, I thought I'd put it up for sale here, if anyone is interested.

First up is a floral wreath,

Flowers you would find in an English garden in springtime.. roses, rananculus, hydrangeas, hyacinth.. with pink and green ribbons..
on a light background.. and a dark background below..
size: approximately10 inch/25.5cm in diameter

Next is a covered basket decorated with the same yummy roses, hydrangeas, etc., and I also used some cream, pink and green ribbons to wrap around the base..

Sweet and pleasant.. :o) can be used to store a lot of different things.. maybe cutleries or napkins, if you do a lot of entertaining...

size: approximately 12 inches/30cm in diameter,
5 inches/12.5cm in height
And lastly, a matching little basket..
..would be perfect for a garden wedding, carried by a cute little flowergirl.. or just to store your little trinkets.. wait.. do you really need a reason for something this cute?? :o)

3 inches/7.5cm in height (without handle),

Baby Boy Gift Basket

A friend requested for me to make a gift basket for another friend's newborn baby boy. I was glad to help cause I love putting together gift baskets. Especially for babies, sweet and precious :o).
My friend left it all up to me and just gave a budget to stick to. I love it when they give me all the freedom to decide :o). I decided on the traditional "all blue" with a transportation theme.
See in the above picture: a soft fleece blanket embroidered with a car, my handmade wet wipes case and my handmade face towels all with trucks, excavators and tractors on it! Funnnn!

On the right are a set of onesies/rompers with cars on them. Look at those tiny socks! The white one even has a car printed anti-slip sole on it :o) hehe..

Wrapped it all up with blue and white organza material and some really sweet ribbons..

.. and hung a pair of tiny lace-up shoes as a final touch!

If you look real close, there's an airplane printed on the side of each shoe to complete the theme :o) Bliss!!!
