On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me....8 ladies milking and a match box that filled me with glee! ~ For fun go to www.aswapforallseasons.blogspot.com and visit some of the blogspots who are sharing their little match box treasures on posts everyday through Christmas.
#8 matchbox was created by Amy D. Oh so pretty and JOY is one of my favorite words. See the little word JOY on the ornament? I love the colors Amy chose to create this box...they are very popular this year. There is a little line of red and white beaded work...so pretty at the end of the little drawer and the snow flake is striking against the pink. Thank you Amy for giving me joy today.
My Christmas memory to share today December 8, 2010 ~ I love remembering the joy in my children's eyes on Christmas day and how they were filled with joy bringing home a crafted gift from school for their Daddy and I. One Christmas the children created construction reindeer art with the antlers being (their traced hands cut out) So precious and colorful....For years I would hang these cards over the two window shutters at our 'candlelite yellow' house on Custer Street before we moved to the country.
I keep them and some other favorite things in our old keepsake suitcase which I look through every once in a while. When ever I go through it I must get the tissue ready. A mother's heart loves to remember...
