Mish Mash and a Swap!

Hello! Remember me? I haven't had much to post about lately it seems. My crafty mojo has gone missing and I've been looking EVERYWHERE for it! Finally, after many tries I did manage to start knitting a hat. Seriously, it took me FOREVER to cast on a project I actually liked! Yeesh!

And thrifting has been sad as well. I read in a magazine that second hand store sales are up 47% from last year! That must be where all my stuff is going. I did manage this fun find:

I believe these were made by Sparklettes but I'm not sure. They are both well made and are nice heavy glass. The seltzer bottle was $7 and the shaker was $3. A bargain! I love the look of them. They seem to never have been used, they are so clean! I have ordered some CO2 chargers. Wish me luck! :)

Also gathered over the last few months is this impressive stack of aprons:

I've been lucky with these for sure. I also kept three others that aren't shown here. I will be listing these in the shop soon and there are some real beauties! If I can get off my lazy butt and get it done that is.

And now for the swap - I would like to host a pink and aqua swap. If you would like to sign up please leave me a comment and make sure I have your email! You can also email me at


I Heart Pink and Aqua Swap

Sign up by: Friday August 7th

Send out by: Friday September 11th

(I am giving a long time on this one because I will be on vacation at the beginning of September and I am sure many of you will be busy with end of summer events as well)

Please send your partner a swap themed in pink and aqua. Include at least one hand made thing, one craft supply and one thrifted item. Please spend approximately $15 on your swap not including shipping.

Anyone interested? Please spread the word!
