The Countdown is Officially Over It's Day 25


There are now 25 matchboxes on my CountDown to Christmas Display.  I decided to display my little treasures on this vintage tray.  I mounted game piece letters on magnetic strips and placed around the upper edge of the tray.  As I opened each box, I added magnetic strip to the back of the box and placed it on the tray.  The tray hangs on my dining room wall.  Thanks to everyone that participated in this swap and thanks to Linda the hostess.  It was a wonderful way to countdown to Christmas.  And my granddaughters loved it.  Wonderful conversation piece.  Everyone that entered my dining room this holiday season wanted to know about the matchboxes.  I had fun explaining the swap.


Day 25 matchbox comes from Lauri.  Isn't it lovely with the Christmas paper clip attached to the box.  Inside I found this lovely angel charm.  Thank you Lauri for making my Countdown complete.

So nice that you are able to display them all in one place so that everyone can enjoy. They are little pieces of art; each and every one. Enjoy the day with family. Christmas blessings, Tammy

Hey, forgot to thank you for your input and advice on the closet doors. I think that I will be much happier with the sliding doors rather than the bifold ones.

Love what you did with your matchboxes! Just popping in to say thank you. I received your matchbox #23. Love it! The Christmas brads I will certainly use and didn't have any like these. Hope you have a wonderful 2011. What a fun swap this was!
