Lighthouse Summertime Matchbox & other swap surprises from Jo R.

WOW is what I said out loud when I opened my Summertime Matchbox swap gift from Jo.
Dearest Jo, I can't thank you enough. I'm overwhelmed with your kindness and your creativity....thank you, thank you and thank you!
It was like Christmas for me. I didn't expect all of these surprises!!
She altered the matchbox with a light house theme. She did a fantastic job finding out all the things I love and enjoy while I'm trying (lol..) to bloom where I'm planted.
The light house art is so amazing. Can you see the lace sky? It look like light rain clouds blowing in....
the sides of the box have little sea shells and star fish with drops of blue that resemble rain drops or water splashes. So creative...I'm blown away.
A miniature light house charm. Isn't it the sweetest?

OMG! A set, earrings, bracelet & necklace that Jo created.
They are made of glass beads and the green is so pretty. As I get older...I'm finding that I like trying new colors. Green represents life & I love life.
A lovely little antique spoon. Jo, I just began a little spoon collection...this little one will be right at home beside my Wizard of Oz spoon.

Christmas??? Oh my!!

All the blue...just like the ocean I LOVE.

And what could this surprise be?

this straw tea cute!

Oh yeah, the roosters are at home at my house.

A little hard to see...beautiful shades of vintage green scrapbook papers I will sure enjoy creating with.

Much much more...a Vintage BINGO card, stickers, blue beaded trim and sweet teapot cards to mail...can't wait!
I really like the book marker you created.

A little 'vintage' postcard. So unique!
The other side of the little Vintage postcard...two sweet charms.

Feeling VERY blessed by God.
Heart felt thanks Jo. You are amazing! I'm so happy to get to know you better and I'm looking forward to staying in touch with you.

  1. Hi my dear friend, what a wonderful swap gift........I just love the matchbox, what a great job she did.............. hope everything is going well with you, I thinkof you often. Hugs Mary

  2. Glad you liked it! What I love abt blogging is women celebrating and supporting each other. You hear so much abt women being critical on each other it is nice to have a group that doesn't do it!

  3. It's really beautiful and looks awesome. I really like these stuffs.
