Last spring I missed out on the thrift swap that Lakota of Faith Hope and Charity Shopping set up and organized. So when she announced she was doing a festive Christmas swap, I was all up on that! My swap partner was Sam from the lovely blog, The Junk House. My package arrived yesterday and I couldn't be happier! The rules of the swap were something handmade, something thrifted and something Christmas. Three to five items, around 19 bucks USD. Here are the goodies I received:
Something handmade. I just love this. I love cooking AND eating and Julia is awesome. The colors and the frame are just lovely. Sam - you are amazing!
Look at the pretty detail on the frame.
I couldn't agree more, Julia!
Something Christmas - Vintage, yellow tree ornaments! I love them! How these are in such good shape is a mystery of the universe. I'm afraid to put them out this year because my 5 month old kittens would destroy them faster than a Sith Lord taking down a Jedi Knight. I'm teaching them to respect vintage, but some temptations are just too... well, tempting!
Something thrifted. Yes friends, hold on to your hats. That is indeed BUTTERPRINT Pyrex! I love the Corningware (I have see 'n store containers to match!) and the salt and pepper shakers but I about died when I opened the package and saw Butterprint peeking out at me. Sam, I'm going to say it again - you're amazing!
Such a cute pattern! I really like the size too, I'm thinking of some individual casserole dishes that I can whip up.
Wow! Just wow! I love it!
The whole kit and caboodle. I couldn't have done better if I were shopping for myself. Thank you so much, Sam! I also want to thank the incomparable Lakota for putting this whole swap together - organizing a ton of bloggers and bringing a lot of joy to people all over the world. I'll be back with regular updates again after Christmas. This holiday season kind of took me by storm! I hope everyone has a really lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year =)
