I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! James, Maggie, Lucie, and I got to spend the day together and it was a wonderful day! My favorite part of the day was the church service that morning because it was so special and beautiful and uplifting. We went to my mom's for lunch (and dinner) and had a nice time visiting with family and hiding eggs for the girls. I hope you all enjoyed your time together as well! I wanted to share the amazing match box that Marti at Artful Curiosities sent me recently. We participated in a match box swap sponsored by Laura Ingalls Gunn and she was my partner. I wanted you to see how beautiful her creation was and how generous she was in filling it for me.
I was so excited when I got the box and began to unwrap it. I tried my best to be patient but I will filled with anticipation and excitement.
Beneath the brown packing material lay this beautiful, amazing creation!
It was filled to the brim with the most delicate, lovely, sweet items . . .
and I can't wait until I have the time to play with every single one of them!
Marti really outdid herself and I am so thankful for her generosity and her amazing creative ability.
My sweet mama's birthday was on Wednesday and I made her a sweet tin box filled with some pretty egg ornaments I painted. I bought the tin at a garage sale for 10 cents! I have 3 more to decorate and can't wait to get started!
I covered the box with scrapbook paper, trim, and flower embellishments. Isn't it lovely?I filled the box with pink basket filler and 6 sweet eggs I painted. I hope she enjoys this sweet gift. I had a lot of fun making it just for her.
I hope you all enjoy this lovely Pink Saturday and the rest of your weekend! Thanks to Beverly for hosting another great event. It is so much fun to see so many beautiful, amazing, talented women out there! Thank you for visiting here today. Please leave me a comment if you have the time!
Blessings to you!
