#17 & #18 matchbox swap



















Goodmorning to all. Here I want to share my #17 and 18 matchbox swap..................the first one is made by Vanessa Seeholzer @ http://vanessa-blogspot.com/  Let me just start by saying this one is surely to me a real ornament...............This box to me has been so cleaverly crafted. I can look at it and see all the time and thought that went into making this. I love all the true to x-mas colors..........I like that she made this box bigger so she could tuck the little mouse in. I also like that it is hanging sideways. Because I am a quilter this one appeals to my applique style. Thanks Vanessa this ornament will be treasured for years to come. Now for #18.....................This very beautiful matchbox comes all the way from the UK. My heart just was overwhelmed by this one. This was made by Sherry Edwards @ http://www.sherrysimpleblog.blogspot.com/



To start off with she wrapped this one so pretty, she took extra time to provide her name, blog name and the number of the matchbox...........so now once I got past the wrapping I was feeling the love that went into this one. This matchbox is very angle like to me, the warm color of the gray and gold give this a very old fashioned look. When I opened the box up and saw the lovely ornament I was just stuned at it's beauty. I hope my photo's show ok cause this beauty is just that (BEAUTIFUL) . Thanks Sherry...........I will always treasure this............Have a wonderful Christmas Vanessa and Sherry. Hugs Mary
