One of my favorite swaps ever was the red and aqua swap of 06. Who can resist such a color combination? As you can see from this little corner of my breakfast nook that I was influenced so much that I change my kitchen from the green/pink theme to aqua colored wall with red throughout. It did help that I found this dinette table at a yard sale for $25 dollars.
Sara and I are hosting our own Aqua and Red Fall Swap. If you are interested in joining us please leave a comment for me or for Sara. We will leave the swap open until October 8th with hope that you all send your delicious parcels out by November 12th. Of course being a thrifter, I personally love a swap that includes a sweet amount of thrifted items. What's not to love about a vintage aqua cup from the 60's. Think autumn, think cozy warm and think aqua and red. Please budget around $20. Sara and I are going the old fashion route and will be matching up partners by hand. If you are open to an international swap please let us know. You can use a flat rate priority international envelope and still fill it to the brim for less than $12.00.
Sara is my graphic designer at the moment because I still can't get photoshop element to work despite the slue of helpful online tutorials. And PS Element is supposed to be the easy one? She made this lovely button for all of you to post on your blogs. She also makes banners. If you need any graphic designs I would definitely recommend her.
If you have any other questions about this, please feel free to email me~ thrift girl at earth link dot net. We'll get a flickr group up and running in the next couple of weeks so that we can admire all of the gorgeous aqua and red swaps in one place. I can't think of better eye candy to take us into fall.
