Okay, here's the great basket I just got from whileitsraining. I squeezed it all into one photo.


First of all, the basket is a fabulous crocheted "nest", which is a perfect size to also be a hat. (Coincidence? I bet it isn't!) It's lined with "Easter grass" which rather than being plastic, is actually edible. There is also edible Easter Bunny confetti, which is weirdly like tiny rabbit-shaped hosts. (Simulated blueberry flavour.) The basket holds wooden eggs for each of the four elements. Lovely! And finally she baked me a loaf of Ostara bread! Cheesy I had hoped to bake some paska this year but just didn't have time, so this was a delicious surprise!

And finally, a package of Peeps!

Thanks for the great package!

Yay! I am so glad it arrived in one piece and that you figured out what the "basket" was suppose to be! I thought maybe it could be used on the alter too, its made with 100% wool. The Paska recipe that I used for the bread stated it made 3 loaves, but after baking the first one with 1/3 of the dough I realized I had to halve down the remaining 2/3 of the dough.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family has, out of the 4 loaves I kept, we only have 1 left and its been cut into already Smiley I have no idea what that grass is all about, but it looked fun.  And no Ostara/Easter basket in my household is complete without those Peeps.  They are terrible for you I know, but its been a tradition for me since I was small.

Mmmm, we're already eating the bread - delicious! And I have to admit the Peeps are starting to disappear too!

I am so in love with all of these packages so far! Nice job my wonderful folks!


Not to get off this thread but I'm starting to plan the Beltane swap. Would anyone like a candle or candle-related theme? Like candleholders, match boxes, etc? How about a swap a spell for Beltane round? Thoughts?

I like the idea of a Candle Swap. Not least because I have a box of wax I've been meaning to use for a couple years. There are so many possibilities there, from candleholders to lanterns to candles in many shapes and sizes.

And of course there are many candle spells, which would fit the theme too.

Candle swap for Belatne sounds great - as Wulf says there are lots of ideas  of things to make...
