More Silver Bella Swap Goodness and a Birthday!!!

Lisa Thompson and Susie Vergenz hosted the cutest little swap. I mean little, as in tiny, adorably bitty, itsy treasures. A mini matchbox Advent calendar. I have resisted the urge to open any of these small marvels to peak at what's inside. I have always been one to love surprises. I like to open my gifts last. Anticipation of the gift is the best part of any pretty package.
So...I am more day....I will post a pic of each teensy treat at the beginning of my posts. Some days that may be my only content but I am going to try to keep my promise and post something each day.
A bit of Christmas anticipation. Love every second! Speaking of love, my big little boy (OK Joe sorry I just had to say it like I feel it, tee hee) will be 22 tomorrow!!!! The best Christmas gift ever.
Happy Birthday Baby! If you would like to send him a bitsy greeting I will pass them along.

Have a lovely month of anticipation, P.
Pin It!

Pam, can you believe I still have not looked at all my Silver Bella swaps? My booty has been dragging since we returned from Omaha.

I gotta get those out tonight since tomorrow is December 1st---Thanks for the reminder!

That's incredibly nicely put together ... I've noticed American ladies seem to have an eye for, and the ability to find funky semi-retro stuff like that... not like here. Also I once came across about a zillion "scrappers'" blogs ~ meaning keepers of scrapbooks. My Gran always did that, but hers involved magazine cut-outs. This American stuff was of another order. Very nice indeed. But they say America is bigger and better and when I get the hell out of my own (very historical, yes) country I think I'll go there!

Lovely stylish blog you got by the way ...

I would prefer you give him a bitsy hug and kiss for me, 'kay?

Happy Birthday, Joe (even if you are a Bengals fan)! I can't wait to see the advent boxes, Pam.
