Day 14 Matchbox Advent Calendar


Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord, your God
will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9

This came from Linda over the weekend. Is it not just TOO adorable? It still surprises her that I like glitter. I like shiny objects, especially at Christmas! And New Year's Eve.





What is even more wonderful about this little glitter house (than just the sparkle!) is that there is a loose jingle bell inside, that rings when you shake the house. Great little detail!





And inside the base are peppermint treats. It's not Christmas without candy canes!



Thank you, Linda for sending me a little Christmas. Maybe I'll try my hand at making my own glitter house! This little house needs neighbors. :)

That little jingle bell WAS secured to the inside of the roof....it may have fallen off...it was a last minute addition. So everyone that gets one of these houses will not have that bell.... but it's SWEET, isn't it!! ha! Glad you got it safely in tact. Merry Christmas!
