Good Evening Friends....I hope this post finds you all doing well!....As many of you know, during these last few weeks, I hosted my very first swap...the "Very Vintage Halloween Swap"! It was an absolutely wonderful experience!...I never dreamed I would have so many of you join me!...& in joining me, many of you went from being acquaintances to very good friends!....I cannot thank you enough!....
So this brings me to my post this evening.....I had such an amazing time with this last swap that I want to announce the second in my "vintage" "Very Vintage Christmas Swap"!.....I am always so attracted to a "vintage-feel" in my own decorating & design, & I think many of you enjoy it too!.... the idea of "vintage & Christmas" conjures up all sorts of charmingly delightful images!!!...and so in the "spirit of vintage" we proceed forth into the season of gifting giving & swaps!.....

I so hope that all of you will want to join me again!...and if you have not been involved yet in a swap, I invite you to participate in this one!...I'm sure you will be thrilled you did! So friends, here is all the information you will need.....Hope to hear from you all very soon!........Love, Heidi XO

Leave a comment on this blog only, letting me know you would like to participate in the swap. Then email me immediately at , sending in the following form completely filled out so that I have your information.


Mailing Address:

Email Address:


Would you be willing to swap with an international partner?:

Decorating style (vintage, modern, country, primitive, glam, funky etc!):

Personal Style: ( example: the way you like to dress yourself...casual?... sporty?....feminine?....classic?):

Favorite holiday colors:

Any likes/dislikes (ie. anything you especially love or collect versus things you dislike):

Favorite magazines:

Favorite candle scents:

Anything else that would be helpful to your partner:

After you have emailed me the filled out form, I will email you back a confirmation, letting you know that I have you down for the swap. Make sure you receive an email back from me.. if you don't receive a confirmation within a day or two, email me again so that I don't miss anyone who wants to be involved! I will leave the swap open for signing up until November 1st, and then will assign partners to each of you on November 3rd. The boxes should be sent by December 1st, so that everyone can enjoy their lovely holiday surprises!.....Thanks again for your interest!

Feel free to use this graphic and add it as a button to your blogs, or post about the swap!!
