Swap ‘til You Drop

Have you ever been out shopping and found something that reminded you of another blogger? And you thought, “I know (insert blog buddy name here) would love this?” Well, I have and so has Lakota. So, she organized the Faith Hope & Charity Swap.

She partnered us up and sent us off shopping! I was partnered up with Cassandra at Sleeping or Sewing. And I’m so glad I was! I came home Sunday night from my weekend getaway to find a box of goodies!

The guidelines were: $20 spending limit, minimum 3 items – maximum 5 items, at least 1 item had to be thrifted, 1 item had to be handmade, and there had to be 1 piece of jewelry.
Thrifted Pieces



I absolutely love everything!
Thanks Cassandra!
And thanks Lakota for organizing the swap!

So, you’re probably wondering what I sent Cassandra. The answer is nothing…yet! I’m the most indecisive gift buyer. You should see me Christmas shopping – it takes me FOR-EV-ER! Anyway, the clock is tickin’ and the package must in Cassandra’s hands by July 31st. Time to hit the thrift stores and make a decision!


  1. Yay!!! I'm sooo glad you love everything. I'll admit the jewelry was the hardest part to decide on, but once I spotted that piece I thought it would be ideal since it's also a brooch (maybe it could be used as a decorational accent).

    Oh the cup...it reminded me of your tray project, and the frames well it look like you have a thing for frames, plus the style looked similar to a mirror you previous posted. ;-)

  2. Sam, count me in if you decide to host a Blogger Gift Swap- I love this idea!!

  3. Yay! I'm so glad the swap went well for you, Cassandra picked out some lovely things. I haven't sent mine out yet either, although I think I'm pretty much done. Will probably be doing a similar swap before Christmas, if you or anyone else fancies it. x
