My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Recycle, Cute, Easy & fun to make.


After  we returnd from our drive yesterday I was thumbing through a new copy of Romatic Home magazine and came across this charming tricket box idea..Made with an empty matchbox.."Who wouldathounk it..?"
and If I can make one so can anyone.. see...how pretty..
You just cut pretty paper or fabric to cover the box, glue in place.. line the inside with a smaller piece and trim with ribbon, glass beads or buttons. I found  some pretty paper & a small crystal & pearl bead for mine. Secured them with glue and there you have it.
I will  put my tiny pieces of "sea glass or also known as "mermaids tears" inside.  (I love finding pieces on the sea shore.)  these I picked  up on the sea shore on a trip to Washington Beaches last year.. to remind me of that trip...but You could put anything small inside couldn't you? Wonder what I can do with the fabric covered one?

That's adorable. Wouldn't those be great as favors at baby or bridal showers filled with special candy or a trinket of some kind?
