Countdown to Christmas - Day 3


Here's the third matchbox I received in the 'Countdown to Christmas' swap hosted by Linda on her blog A Swap For All Seasons.

This beautiful box was created by Ruth Graham.  Unfortunately her blog 'throughmygardensgate' appears to have been discontinued so I can't provide a link to it or say thank you personally. 

Ruth decorated her box with scrapbook paper and edged it top and bottom with some little glass like chips looking like frost - I haven't captured it well in my photos. On the front of the box is lovely snowflake made with glass beads and pipe cleaners (what a great idea!). Inside is lined with red glitter paper.


The gift inside is a pair of silver earrings with beads and the peace sign - they are beautiful.


If you are by any chance reading this Ruth, many thanks for the beautiful matchbox and earrings, they will both be treasured x

How lovely! Of course I'm partial to peace signs. :O) I hope Ruth reappears!

So pretty- both matchbox and earrings! I emailed Ruth- hopefully I'll hear from her soon.

It never ceases to amaze me how many goodies can fit into such a tiny space! All three matchboxes are fabulous! Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks, too, for your sweet comment! Hugs, Terri

Another fab box. Earings are lovely. I wonder if Ruth made them herself. It is a shame when you can't thank personally. I think someone must have eaten my gingerbread man.

Sherry, I am coveting your matchboxes and gifties! I read on another one about the matchbox you sent and the altered domino you included. It is lovely!
