My Easter swap with lovely LuLu

I swapped with LuLu Kellogg for an Easter Ornament, lucky me!  LuLu and I had a class together at Silver Bella, so I was thrilled to be chosen as her partner!
She sent me this GORGEOUS cone-shaped beauty!  It's wrapped in textured wallpaper and embellished with minty green, frothy crepe paper trim and a rose; I love the velvet rick rack around the bottom -- and the glass bauble!
And Marie!
She also gave me this cupcake with a bunny pick, set on a lavender crepe paper plate!
And then, she spoiled me by including this beautiful cuff bracelet!
I love it so much!  (It's my first cuff!)
Here's what I sent to LuLu:
I made the little chick in her favorite color, pink.  She pulls an "egg cart", which is actually a vintage salt and pepper shaker/toothpick holder -- here's how it looked "before".
I painted and glittered two plastic eggs, and then created a tiny bouquet out of vintage millinery flowers to go in the cart; the cart's wheels and hardware got a coat of silver paint, too.
The little chickie even has pink wire legs and feet!  I gave her a paper collar, wallpaper and ephemera wings, and a vintage lace and millinery crown.
I sent along a little matchbook full of trinkets, too.
I hope LuLu has a lot of fun with her swap gifts!
Thank you for swapping, dear LuLu!
