How about a swap to brighten our winter days???

We all love to find treasures at thrift stores and garage sales.  We love things others cast-off that we can make good use of.  It is the ultimate recycling and such fun too!

So, Cat and I are suggesting an ANZAC Bloggers Thrifty Tin Swap!

Creating a gift that's really lovely and special for our partner (this will be a one-on-one swap) containing no less than 3 thrifted items. Items to be packaged/presented in a thrifted tin and contain:

·                A truly lovely thrifted gift for your partner
·                Handmade item/s (either handmade by yourself using thrifted materials OR brought thrifted and is handmade)
·                Something sweet to eat

The golden rule to swaps is "give like you would like to receive" and to have FUN

Sign up by May 30th 2011. You will be sent your partners completed questionnaire no later than June 10th 2011. Post your Thrifty Tin Swap no later than 01st July 2011

  1. I love this idea!!! I am going to sign up but shhh don't tell my mama or she'll tell me off for getting too busy again! Now to start looking for a tin ... awesome idea ladies, awesome idea.

  2. I think this is a great idea! I wish I didn't live in Canada because International shipping would be outrageous. (I just calculated shipping a five pound parcel would be almost $50.00!) Yowser! I could send the same within Canada for $13.00. If, however you do have anyone interested in Canada I am in please!
