A Frenchie Swap - "I'd Rather Be In Paris"

Hey guys, just a quick little blog post to keep you up on the ins and outs of what is going on here in Minnesota. I am participating in a small Frenchie swap with some other bloggers through out the United States and am very excited to be included in this group. My swap partner will be Lisa from in Texas. I am so looking forward to this swap and couldn't be happier with the theme - "I'd Rather Be In Paris".

Shelley of is hosting this swap. Here's what she has organized. Shelley chose the ladies that are involved in the swap, and then she let each of us know today whose name you have and you put together a package of found objects, vintage items, etc that have a French theme and mail the package to your partner on a designated date. The spending limit is $20-$25 and that doesn't include postage. You may submit a list of "wish items" or likes and dislikes to your partner, or let it be a surprise!

I'll post again when I send out my partners items around the 22nd of June about this swap and after I've received my items from Lisa in Texas.

What a great opportunity for me, and to think I'm selling in a French Flea shop in Minnesota, now a part of a Paris swap, and do you think maybe a trip to Paris might be in store for me next?

One can dream, right!
