CountDown to Christmas Blog-Along

Finally I got to open the package from Linda at A Swap for All Seasons with all 25 matchbox ornaments and a wonderful goodie bag from the amazing Linda. Linda had about 75 people participate in this swap. So 75 people each sent her 25 ornaments and she made sure that we each received 25 ornaments back from 25 different people.
What an undertaking!
Thank you so much Linda!
I received my package a couple of weeks ago,
but I didn't open it because I knew once I did I'd want to peak at all of the pretties.

My Day #1 Ornament is from Pam at Treasures-n-Textures.
I love it!
It's so pretty and my photo definitely does not do it justice.
I love the little guy that she put in for the surprise!
Thanks Pam!

Here is the Day #1 Matchbox that I made.

I can't wait to see what beautiful little treasure I get tomorrow. Thanks Linda and Pam for bringing joy to my heart today!

TOO cute! I am loving these little creations.

I will tell you I think mine are NOT up to snuff - I made them all the same, in a tuxedo pattern, and they are not nearly as cute as these retro-inspired ones!!!

Merry Christmas Countdown!

Linda said...

Both of these are so cute!

Erica said...

Just beautiful!

Pam said...

So glad you like the little box. Wasn't it fun to decorate each box and put a little something special inside. Tomorrow another treasures.

I love the matchbox and especially that little vintage soldier! I could just reach in and grab him off the page! (And by the way, your elf image is adorable!) Thanks for sharing!
