My First Swap

I am participating in my first swap. It is so much fun! I highly suggest trying one out. For those of you who are saying, "what in the world is she talking about???", a swap is a gift exchange with another blogger. The hosting blogger matches you with a partner (anywhere in the world - mine lives in Canada), gives you a little info about them and you send them a themed package. This particular swap is a Vintage Valentine Swap. Fun! Fun! Needing to do some shopping for my swap, the kids and I headed to one of my favorite antique stores yesterday. I found some great treasures for my partner, Deanna. Oddly, it was so much fun shopping for a complete stranger! While I was there...I found a few treasures for myself. A super cute pillow (made of antique linens), a little crocheted apron (Mr. C will be so excited I purchased another apron), antique dress form. Now, I have been looking for one of these (new or old) and they are very pricey. I walked away with this one for $25.00!!! And, it's in mint condition! Ya-hoo!
Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

You did so well at the antique shop Mindy. I love the body form. You got it for a steal. I love them myself. They are not easy to find. Enjoy your day, Blessings and Hugs, Deanna
