Hope, Preparation and Joy

There is a darling little girl that turned 7 last week....
that sits with her family across the aisle from me in church most Sundays....
or somewhere close by...
and sometimes she comes and sits with my husband and I.
I made the little glitter house above for her last week.
It's on a box and I put some little girl things inside
(I just so happen to HAVE a lot of little girl things in my art room!! Don't we all?)
Below is my matchbox for the first day of Advent...
you saw that here.
Nathalie is showing each one of the matchboxes each day on her blog.
You really should visit her each day to see.
You should also visit Nathalie's Etsy Shop!
She finds the most wonderful treasures
and
she also makes some beautiful things she offers in her shop also.
Go forth and shop!

Oh that is so sweet!! I know you made this little one so very happy! Glitter makes anyone happy! LOL. Giving, just like God gave us HIS more precious Son we need to pass on the thought!
Hugs,

I love this little house. Don't know if it's the giant peppermint over the door, or the pearly snowman, but I LIKE it! Looks yummy!

Thanks for the plug! I enjoy the consistent traffic through my etsy shop.
