I'm in need of some old school romantic charm. Such as the romances found in these books and/or movies:

Pride and Prejudice
Jane Eyre
The Young Victoria
Sense and Sensibility

I'm thinking not a large swap, something small. maybe a few wax sealed love letters or poems, pressed flowers, ribbons, you get the picture. Maybe even like a secret admirer swap? We pretend to be the gentleman/lady and send our partner/love interest some heart-felt romantic stuff?

I was also hoping to start signups sometime in november and have endouts early-mid december.

I have never been an organizer, and honestly no clue how to do it. If anyone would be interested you'd be more than welcome.

So, do we have any takers?

Oh no! When I fill up my swap quota soemone comes up with another great swap idea.

I would love a low stress romantic swap based on some of my favourite books/movies. If this swap isn't set up til I have the free spot, or time, then I'll organize it myself. If I should do it then it won't be till late October/early November.

Sadly I have already gotten some ideas, both for what I would like to send and how the swap could work.

This sounds so amazing! I'd be totally in, but I fear I couldn't be of much help with organizing...

You're absolutely right, if we should go ahead and have this swap now then there is nothing wrong in having a second round around Valentines, one can never have too much sweetness.

Feb would be a good time for me (I think Undecided) and I'm interested, but I might have to go read a book or 2!
