I am overdue in posting my lovely shadow boxes that came my way from Elizabeth's (Creative Breathing) Christmas swap. We were each asked to take a small Whitman's Sampler candy box and turn it into a miniature Christmas shadowbox/vignette. I chose a night-before-Christmas theme for my boxes.
Bingo cards and mini strings of lights cover the sides of the box.
|My boxes wrapped and ready to send to Elizabeth.|
When my boxes arrived, I raced to my craft room to decorate my pink feather tree.
I love them so much, I honestly think they might stay up all year-round.
Please forgive me for not taking individual pictures of each one. They are simply beautiful. Each one a special work of art. For a complete listing of all the boxes and their artists, please see Elizabeth's post here. Thank you for coordinating this swap, Elizabeth.
While we're talking about miniature inspirations, Josie and I decorated her dollhouse for Christmas.
This is same dollhouse that I gave Josie for Christmas last year. I originally paid $10 for it and gave it a much needed makeover. Over this past 12 months, it's been a happy dwelling for her many little animal and superhero friends.
The raccoon family has taken in a few more guests for the upcoming holidays.
Momma mouse is busy putting the final touches on a gingerbread house and Christmas cookies in the kitchen.
Papa mouse and little mouse are sneaking peeks at the stockings and gifts.
A sled rests next to the front door awaiting more snowy adventures!
And because I can't leave my own dollhouse alone, I recently picked up this vintage Christmas figurine for .50 cents at the thrift store.
She looks rather festive standing next to a pile of Christmas packages.
One of my favorite bloggers "let's go fly a kite" has just posted wonderful pictures of her daughters' dollhouse and a miniature Santa house that she just decorated on her blog here. Christmas inspiration from our little houses to your own!
It's A Very Cherry World Rednesday!
