I think everyone should have now received their swap goodies in the Faith Hope and Charity Shopping Swap, and if I say so myself it appeared to be a resounding success! If you haven't yet done a post on what you received from your partner - please do consider doing so. [I'm nosy]
A few people suggested doing a linky post so we could all share what we received / sent, so if you have posted on it, you can link up here so everyone can have a look.
Amy at Blighty Boutique has received her parcel from me now, so I can show you what I sent her.
ceramic fruit menu/place card holders in a china dish
(possibly for holding a bottle of wine?)
Amy runs a vintage market, so I thought these could hold price labels/descriptions
Bought from Brighton junk shop
Floral china trinket box - Amy likes florals and pastels
Bought from Watford charity shop
Home made scented candle in vintage tea-cup
A for Amy wooden letter by Emily Readett-Bailey
Vintage Advertising Mirror - Found in basement of Brick Lane vintage shop
Combines Amy's loves of old advertising and dogs!
Handmade bead and vintage scarf bracelet
Bought new from Spitalfields Market
You'll notice I was naughty and sent 6 items instead of 5, but I'd bought the mirror in the hope I'd be able to clean it up more than I was able to to. I couldn't get rid of all the grime, but thought Amy might as well have it anyway. As it turned out, she loved it in spite of its rather pre-loved look - phew!
Look out for news of another swap at Christmas, similar rules, but with added bells!
