Simply Sweet...


I bought these little match-box-looking boxes a long time ago
but never used them...they aren't "real" match boxes, so it
seemed like cheating and they went to the island of unmade
crafts {it's a BIG island!}


But I bumped into them again recently and their clean, plain,
whiteness inspired me...

to make these Simply Sweet little treats.





Not many frills...





Mostly made from left over scraps of ribbon and paper...





and shells of course...






Ok...I did have to try an idea I had to use the same "foofing" technique
that's used to make wreaths...but in a micro-tiny form. I just had to...





A moment of silliness that turned out pretty cute!

We'd be please to have you join in our
DREAMY CREAMY WHITE GIVE AWAY !!

  5. I am sooo going to steal your idea and use those as tiny favors beside each place setting next time I host a luncheon. One dreamy (albeit tiny) piece of chocolate inside.

  6. Oh M,
    I love your ability to keep things lovely and simple!!! Oh how I wish I could do that, but I always manage to "glitter everything up" and sometimes it's just too much. :( Speaking of glitter, your Mermaid tree is in the glitter hospital, I went to pack her up and her glitter was a little tarnished and how could I send something NOT PERFECT to someone like you??? I have just been super busy but now that my swaps are all out and the stepdaughter's graduation and visit from hubby's exwife are over I can breathe and glitter again! Thanks for being such a good sport!
    And thanks for visiting me yesterday :)
    You make me smile.
    Sparkly Hugs,
    Tobi and the Pixies!

  41. I am wildly in love with those matchboxes, but alas, I have won several drawings of late and feel that the right thing to do is give someone else a chance. Now, that is MAJOR willpower on a magpie's part because they are very, very shiny objects that I am crushing on in the worst way, but fair is fair. Not fun, but fair. ;-)

    Happy Blue Monday to you...

    XO,
