My Precious Box from Debby

This holiday season I participated in my first two swaps: one was the the Swap for All Seasons Matchbox Swap sponsored by Linda and A Christmas Box Swap sponsored by Debby over at The Cozy Blanket. I have been posting the little matchboxes I received one day at a time, and now here is my box that Debby made me. It is the sweetest thing, and I love it.

The red and white checks against the black on the outside of the box turned out so attractive and and looked like something right out of a M.E. magazine. As all of you know, I am a true lover of Mary Engelbreit’s work.

This is the top of my box with Anna Estelle and her rosy cheeks.

The box was filled with so many wonderful  little goodies.

Here I tried to spread them all out so you could see them: flavored tea and  coffee, 2 Christmas volitive candles in little jars, one of Debby’s adorable little bottle cap necklaces she made especially for my 5 year old granddaughter, Eloise, a teacher’s pencil holder, a popcorn ornament, M.E. bookmarks which I desperately needed, an M.E. cherry rhinestone accessory, and a dear little “Noel” tiny ornament. Thank you Debby so much for all of your hard work. You are such a special lady, and I appreciate your box so very much. Happy Holidays to you and your family this year. Your gift to me has brightened my home and my heart


  1. Oh you are so sweet. It was fun doing the box for you. Wish I had done something with the inside, hah. So glad we have become blogging friends.

  2. have some major Mary Engelbreit swag now. The Christmas Box exchange with Debby and everyone was big fun.
