New Swap! Calling All Vintage Cowgirls!

Howdy y'all! Welcome to our half-pint sized spring swap.

In honor of Goodness Girl Leigh Ann's recent move to Texas we are going with.....


Think gingham, calico, and bandanna. Turquoise. Belt buckles and boots (the bigger the better!) Stars. Chuckwagons and cast iron. Pioneer Women.

It might be a little bit country kitsch or a little bit hokey western but we know you are up to the challenge of the thrift. The images we've seen of vintage cowgirls on the web are amazing for crafting a handmade item.

We're fixin' to have fun with this one and know you will, too!


  1. Challenge: you must use a vintage cowgirl image in your swap package. Get creative! Find images on Google and Flickr by searching words like vintage cowgirl or cowgirl pin-ups.

  2. As always have a thrifted item, handmade item, and throw some sweet goodness in there, too! Packages should be valued at $15 not including shipping.

  3. Newbies accepted. This swap will accept newbies so they can get experience swapping for the big no-newbie swap this summer.
Sign ups:

  1. Sign up right away by sending your name, email, and web info (if you have it) to . We are closing it at 20 people. This is a small swap.

  2. Once the swap closes we will work on partnering up and have them to you sometime on Friday, April 30th and Saturday, May 1st.

  3. We are random number generating the pairs this time. It will be luck of the draw!

Mail out date: MONDAY, MAY 24th

Let's have some fun the month of May and then get it out before Memorial Day and the lazy days of summer.
