Countdown to Christmas - Day 5


It's the 5th December already, the days counting down to Christmas are just flying by!

Here's my matchbox number 5 for the 'Countdown to Christmas' swap hosted by Linda on her blog A Swap For All Seasons.

This one was made by Becky and it is one of my favourites. Just look at what's inside!


A cute little mitten hand knitted by Becky's fair hand! 

I love the way the box has been decorated too, such a sweet vintage image of a little girl who looks a bit frightened - maybe she's on her way to visit Santa and is worried she hasn't been good enough all year!

Thank you Becky, I love it!!

Hope you can all stop by tomorrow to see box number 6.

Your matchbox is precious! And Becky's is cool too. No arthritits in her hands!

Perhaps she just looks frightened because she has realised she has lost her mitten!! I wonder if someone else got its matching one.
Still looking for my elusive No.1 box. Did you find your no2?

This is one of my favorite boxes...too cute! LOVE the tray you made to display them all...great idea!

I agree- definately one of the best! I knit with Becky every Thursday- she has been knitting since she was a little girl! She knits without even looking down at her hands!
Oh, by the way, I love what you did with the little green felt mittens from the goody bag!
AND... your tags are FAB!
