DAY 1 Matchbox Advent Calendar



But the angel said to them,"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people."

Luke 2:10












Matchbox by Linda


All this month I will be sharing each of the 24 boxes I got in the Christian Paper Artists matchbox advant calendar swap.



As you can see, they are strung up, in random order,
on a wooden yard stick in my back porch sanctuary.
The light is good there and our back door is the one most often used
so the artwork can be appreciated daily.

Thank you all who participated!
Each of your matchboxes is beautiful
and they make a gorgeous presentation as an ensemble cast!

They are wonderful! You should put the photos of them on the yardstick in the Photo Album on CPA!

These matchboxes are so inspirational. They give me ideas for a project. Of course, part of the charm is the yardstick they are hung on and the room they are displayed in.

Margaret said...

I love these and the way you've hung them, there goes that fab wall again, sigh...
