Santa came early this year!

I was lucky to be able to participate in Elizabeth’s Whitman’s candy box swap.  I was like a youngster waiting for this box to arrive, and I wasn’t disappointed!!!!!

Lots of us have shown the boxes we have received but they were all a little different….I haven't even taken the wrapping off some of them, they are  so cute!  Such an incredible group of talented ladies….


Wonderful vintage Christmas ephemera from Elizabeth…


See what I mean????  A box of fun!


A special gift from Elizabeth….
















Don’t they look wonderful on my little tinsel tree?


A great little reminder from Shirley of Zetta’s Aprons  how we all feel this time of year….IMG_3265

This was by far, the most fun swap we have done at Christmas, so far. Thank you Miss Elizabeth for having the idea!!!!!

I agree. It was one of my absolute favorite swaps EVER! I just want to stay in my craft room all the time to stare at those clever boxes.

Daphne said...

Wow! These are amazing creations. I always find so much inspiration here!

Oh My Gosh, this has to be the cutest swap EVER and I too am jealous! Every one is just as cute as the one before. Hmm, maybe a Whitmans swap for Valentines or Easter would be fun!

I bought a small lighted tree just for this swap! It looks wonderful in my parlor with all the Whitman boxes and the cute toy tags from Tammy's swap. I will have to post the pics later. Your tree looks so fun and festive!

Sandy, You so beautiful shared all the ornaments and how wonderful it was to open them each. This was such a fun swap. Thank you so much for joining me. I adore you for that! I received the bubbles, oh my gosh so many! As I had made a red elf, he didn't look well with the yellow topped light; so I used a red/green one. I promise to save it for next year and make you a green elf. I'm pooped with Christmas crafting! I mailed your box Wed. hope you get it soon! E
