More Christmas Matchboxes

I got so busy with Christmas that I never had a chance to finish sharing my beautiful matchboxes that I received in Linda's swap.

Box 19 is from Kelly and is has a jolly Santa on the box and a
beautiful green hair clip on the inside.
Box 20 is from Wendy and it has a pretty little Snowflake Faerie on it and a beautiful ornament on the inside with a fairy in it.

Box 21 is from Grace and it as postage stamp of Santa on it and a little game piece as the #. On the inside is a really pretty little acorn necklace.
Box 22 is from Nicole and it has a pretty paper flower on the front and then beautiful little embellishments plus a tiny little angel on the inside.

Thank you all so much for the beautiful matchboxes!
They are all so beautiful and unique
and I will treasure them always!

Here are the matchboxes that I made for days 19-22. There are snowflakes, a bag with "Candy Cane Seeds" in it, mittens and a wreath. I hope everyone liked the boxes that I made up!

Here is an afghan that I made for my daughter, her apartment is mainly black and white so I thoguht this would fit in nicely.
