So much for promises. I was going to try to post every day this month but as you see I am already off to a bad start. My Lia Sophia jewelry biz is going quite well (a good thing) but it takes up my blog time(bad thing). Anyhoo, here is December 2nd's cheerful matchbox. A glittery silver bell and sheet music, lace and red pom pom trim. Cute, cute, cute!Inside a darling little hand stitched bell ornie. So sweet. Unfortunately there is no name on this one to give credit.
Number 3 has sweet hanky trim that is oh so vintage, bits from a german book page, snow flake sparkle and a sophisticated touch of black ribbon. It reminds me of Grandma dressed for the holidays.
Inside is an adorable vintage Santa image in a bright red bottle cap to decorate a diminutive tree. This one is from Donna Robinson of South Dakota. No blog though, darn!
I will give a peak at the little tree these ornies are decorating as soon as I get a few more hung. Isn't this advent calendar amazing? I am anticipating each little surprise with my morning coffee. I think the simple things like this are the best part of the joy of the season. Discovering God's gifts in the small things. Just as it should be.
Have a day filled with small surprises, P.
