Faith Hope and Charity Jubilee Swap


I have just completed the Jubilee swap that Lakota organised a few weeks ago. I'm absolutely delighted with my parcel of goodies just received from my swap partner Dawn at Life on the East Coast. It was like Christmas all over again wth me oohing and aahing at all the lovely gifts inside. The rules were at least one item had to be thrifted/second-hand, at least one item should be handmade and at least one item to fit the Jubilee theme. Here are my box of goodies from Dawn.

which included of a pair of Jubilee socks,  jam pot covers, a notebook, pack of notecards, a bag of ribbons and thread, a pack of rhubarb and custard sweets, a tote bag, an Observers book of Garden Flowers and some crocheted bunting which is currently hanging on my fireplace - I love it.




My gifts to Dawn were


A book, a fat quarter of union flag fabric, Cath Kidston Body Cream, tin of buttons, some ribbons, a hanging heart, some gift tags, bun cases and a drawstring bag made with Cath Kidston fabric.

Thank you so much Dawn for being my swap partner and for my lovely parcel
and also to Lakota for organising this.

  1. My Dearest Patricia, I had never heard of The Dordogne, so I looked it up on the web before replying to your comment. Oh my goodness! You are going to a place where Cinderellas wait for Prince Charmings to come along and carry them into' "Live Happily Ever After Land". I am so ecstatically happy for you. Do take lots of photographs, so that when you return I can visit this lovely place through your photos. I am very delighted that you like my little water bottle bags (try saying "water bottle bags" 5 times real fast. LOL. Very simple, but lots of fun. If you try this project, be sure and post it. Have a marvelous vacation, Connie :)
