the thrift exchange: theme #3

The Floral theme is done and dusted, so it was my turn to choose the next theme for the Thrift Exchange challenge. I picked a theme using an improvised wheel-of-fortune/merry-go-round type contraption (it’s actually a rotating clothes hanger – bonus points for reinventing laundry items!) I mentioned to Jaharn that, in hindsight, this would have looked way cooler if I had fashioned some horse shaped pieces of paper. Anyway, onto the next theme. Which is….
So this month will be spent hunting down the perfect sheer garment. I’m hoping it will be a lot easier than last month’s floral challenge! Speaking of which, stay tuned for our floral outfit posts later on this month. Very much looking forward to see what floral goodness will turn up on my doorstep.
P.S. Don’t forget to enter my Revlon CustomEyes giveaway! Entries close midnight tonight. So that gives you about 6 hours left to enter, if you haven’t already.

    I love this challenge that you have with your friend! And love seeing what you come with. =)

    I really love this little mobile contraption- it reminds me of what Caroline has in her room. Except she has attached pictures instead of pieces of paper. Man, you two are so creative.
