I recently took part in a fabulous swap organised by Lakota over at Faith Hope & Charity Shopping which was all about second-hand, thrifted and handmade items.
I was paired with Elizabeth from Making Good Use – one of my favourite blogs and one that I’ve been reading for several years now, so it was quite easy to choose item to send Elizabeth that I knew (hoped!) she would like. You can see what I sent her here.
My parcel from Elizabeth was lovely – the postman arrived with it the day before I went on holiday, and I only just remember to take a photo of the pretty packaging before I started ripping at the tissue paper!
Such lovely gifts! The knitted coathanger is already in my wardrobe and has proved perfect for a silky top which constantly fell off its old hanger and drove me to distraction. The necklace and earrings were taken on holiday with me and worn several times – black goes with everything, doesn’t it?
Emma Bridgewater Travel Journal – already in use. Issey Miyake body lotion – yum! And a fabulous handmade card featuring an illustration from a vintage Ladybird book.
Also in my parcel, but not pictured, was a beautiful linen tea towel, which is already in use – hence no photo!
Thanks so much, Elizabeth – I love it all!
