Matchbox swap

Hello and welcome to December. I was able to join in the matchbox swap. This was a real arts and crafts project for myself. We had to decorate a total of 25 matchboxes and place a small tinker inside. I was so excited to get all 25 in the mail. ALL of them came in there own little baggie and it has been fun going thru each and every one. I will post each one so you can see how darn cute they all are. I am going to place them on a small tree and cherish them always.

The first one you see in the photo was made by Shannon Linde of Madison, WI. I love the colors she used, she placed a book mark inside that is so charming. Stop by and say hi to Shannon at Quilting in pinks, Bulldogs at my side. Thanks again Shannon and hope you are having fun as well with yours. HUGS MARY

Random photo's of x-mas stockings and one cool hot water bottle cover




I just love Christmas stockings, especially the ones made from vintage quilts. I have several in my home and keep them up all year long. First the beauty of them gets me every time. I am a avid hand quilter so I know the time it takes to make a quilt, second I love the idea to repurpose those quilts that have been loved to DEATH, thirdly they are art to me, and however you use them in your home they simply bring a smile every time I look at them. I also am showing you a hot water bottle cover that is simply adorable. The cold is on our way to the PACIFIC NORTHWEST so this bottle looks like something I need in my home. Have a great weekend everyone out there. HUGS MARY

WORN AND TATTERED


How can something like this be so appealing to me! I guess I am a true lover of used and cast off's. I find beauty and warmth with adding them in my decor. Have a great weekend. HUGS MARY
