Faith Hope and Charity Swapping linky post

 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!

Please see post below for 300 follower giveaway!

    PS - thanks for the kind comment you left for me on my 'return' post, meant a lot! Thanks x (and yes, I do know them in real life which makes it all the more annoying!! Not a great deal I can do about it, I tried changing my blog, but 'lost' everyone, so 'she' won in a way, which is why I re-opened!)

  26. Those card holders are ingenious and such a thoughtful gift for a market seller:)). Candle in tea cup and saucer? Simply gorgeous! I didn't complain to the seller about the dress coz I just couldn't be arsed and knew I'd give it the chop as I really liked the print on the fabric:) xoxo

  29. Just came across your blog - via a route I now can't recall. Love, love your blog - 'bake cake because you like eating it' - I know that feeling! Your swap sounds like a great idea too. Would love to push my nose into the next one!
