Thrift It, Gift It, Facelift It!

I thought it would be fun for some of my blogger friends and I to do a little thrift makeover challenge and also a way to make some new blogging friends so I came up with Thrift It, Gift It, Facelift it and invited a few people to play along!

thrift swapping challenge

Here's how it's going to go down...

I assigned everyone who signed up to play along a "gift it" partner. Then we got to go thrift shopping... (no arm twisting there!) with a $10 budget and purchase some things to send to our partner.

Mail your items and when each person receives their package of thrifted goodies they'll share what they received. Then we have about a month to recreate our items into something new! Sounds like fun doesn't it?

I received my package from {Cecilia over at The B Farm}.


She packed everything up in this box... the box will be easy enough to makeover but wait till you see what she packed inside!




A pretty scarf which I think I have an idea for... some heart shaped wire rings and hangers... a gold double picture frame... and some pretty little pearls and rhinestones!


Here's a close up of the heart themed wire pieces... hmmm... I have an idea brewing for the two silver one's on the right...


But so far I'm struggling with the ones on the left... any suggestions?


Here's some of the packaging... I definitely WON'T be making them look like that!


Here's a close up of the double picture frame.
