Merry Christmas To All and To All a Goodnight!

  I am almost sad to open the last of these beautiful match boxes. It means this year's journey is coming to an end.  Marsi Bennet is the artist behind this gorgeous Christmas colored creation.

The true feeling of the season is displayed in this tiny box. A darling holly berry button is the cherry on top.

Inside is a lovely beaded angel charm. What a fitting end to this amazing display of talent and love for this most blessed of seasons.

I wanted to share how I decided to display my Advent calendar. I have had a vintage crib in my garden awaiting an herb garden. I took the spring section from the bottom and placed it on my entry wall.

I love the rustic look of this piece. I may keep it here after Christmas and just leave it bare.

For now it is just such a joyful reminder of Silver Bella and all the talented women involved.

It will become a wonderful keepsake to count down the days to Christmas yet to come.

A beautiful reminder of the passing years and friendships old and new.

My tiny kitchen tree displays the treasures found inside. I hope you have enjoyed sharing these bits of artistry with me. Have a beautiful, blessed Christmas surrounded by loved ones and the memory of those who can't be with you. This is indeed the most wonderful time of the year.

Let the wonder fill your heart.

God's grace has bestowed friends like you on me and I am so grateful. Have a joyous Christmas.

Be Merry, P.
Pin It!
