Advent Days Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten

 the 25 Days of Christmas matchbox swap continues....Day Seven created by Ruth of Through My Gardens Gate...her blog seems to be down.  Hope she is okay and checks in with someone soon.  I love this box with the beaded star on top and the copper starfish inside.  I'm working with copper now and am loving it so this copper starfish made me happy , thank you Ruth!

 Day eights sweet matchbox was created by Nicole Gibbys Girl.   She doesn't seem to be updating her blog, hope she is okay and will check in as well.   .Love this little angel girl, thought this was very creative and she will look so sweet on a little tree.   Thank you Nicole!
 Day nine was created by Nancy My Crafty Little Page ... she received my Day nine too !  Nancy used some of my favorite colors on this box...bronze / brown /copper and created a little nest (another favorite !) with a pearl "egg" inside on a paper clip !
 Thank you Nancy I looooove this box and the little goodie inside.
Day ten was created by Pam... Treasures-N-Textures  love the beautiful sparkly blue leaf on the box and the tree earrings inside !  Love that I'm going to have new earrings to wear for the holiday season...thank you Pam !

You can find a list of participants and links to the other bloggers at A Swap For All Seasons ... this was hosted by the very generous Linda.

Hope you will stop back on Monday when I will post days 11, 12 and 13.


Thank you for stopping by and thank you for leaving a comment , I really appreciate you taking the time.  (())

Hi Francie! I've been wondering where you found your little sweet vintage images for your boxes? I think they are so lovely!

Linda said...

Four lovely matchboxes!

They are all wonderful. I couldn't possibly pick a favorite from among them. Won't you have a beautiful collection when this is done?

I've missed your blog the past few days... your last few matchboxes are wonderful! Great images and sparkle!

Oh my, I thought you were doing the "12 Days" and that amazed me - now I find out you are doing more than twice that. You would be able to decorate a small tree with just a match box theme.
