What if a package arrived from a stranger and it contained adorable trinkets and books and souvenirs?
Martha at Martha Writes arranged a Back2School swap for bloggers. People emailed their contact info to Martha, and then she paired everyone up and gave them the adorable theme (travel, school/art/crafty little supplies). At first it seemed like an odd idea and then I thought, how cool... it's like a Christmas gift swap, except everyone will generally have the same design-y aesthetic and you will get stuff you are really charmed with. Plus, who doesn't love real mail? It's like pennies from heaven, kids.
So what would Decorno people swap? Maybe vintage photos, an old design book you can part with to share the love, vintage keys, a cool champagne bottle stoppers. Maybe the theme is "bar & cocktail." Who knows... any ideas?
