Center Piece and Third Matchbox

Yesterday I took an old frame and spray painted it white.  Then I cut out a piece of snow scrapbook paper to fit.  After putting it back together I put a few left over ornaments and an old vase I bought at my favorite junk store on top.  I stuck in an icy conifer sprig and sprinkled a little snow over all of it.  Walla... a little center piece for our humble kitchen table.  

This project didn't cost me over $3!  The vase was .25, the ornaments were $1 for all 4, the frame was .25, and the sprig was $1.25.  The snow came from another project and so did the scrapbook paper.  Woohoo, I love a good deal!

And now for number 3 of the matchboxes... This one comes from Tracy at Daily Bubbles.  What a darling number 3 this is!

Inside this lovely box is a pair of sweet earrings!

Thank you ever so much Tracy!!  Be sure to check out her blog it is very sweet and cheery!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!

I absolutely love your centre piece. How simple but elegant. I was thinking about buying one but will have to rethink that & maybe make one :)
Thank you for the inspiration.

Merry Christmas Mandie

Just stopped by from Countdown to Christmas Swap to say hello. I love making applesauce, but never thought about adding red hots. Mmmm.
