A Very Thrifty Christmas

Hey everyone! 

Hope that you are having a fabulous Friday! 

Recently, I participated in A Very Thrifty Christmas gift swap that was hosted by the lovely Sandra over at Lara's Vintage

She set up partners to shop for each other; the only condition that everything had to be second-hand, whether it be from a thrift shop, yard sale, estate sale, etc. Oh, we also had a budget of $25: gifts and shipping. 

I received the lovely momma blogger, Sara, who has the most adorable toddler ever!

Lara's Vintage

These are the adorable items I got in my package. I received this the day I got home from school. Best finals pick-me-up ever! 

Can't wait to style this necklace! 

I love this! My roommate is obsessed with bees, so I better keep my eye on it. Hehe. 

Even her card was thrifted! A gal after my own heart! 

I had such a blast participating in this event! (If you want to see what I sent Sara, check it out here)

Thanks Sara for all of the wonderful presents! 

And thanks Sandra for hosting a great swap. (Check out what others sent here.)

Have a great day everyone!

Wow, what lovely treasures! I especially love that necklace and teapot. Blue and white is such a pretty combination. Sounds like such a fun thing to participate in!

That would be a great thing to do for a secret santa among friends! It looks like you got some really lovely presents, the tea pot is my favourite :)

What a great idea! Thrifting is so big, especially here in Ohio, that it'd be such a great event to host this way. I hope that you had fun! Your finds are adorable. Merry Christmas!
