Knapsack Matches



In the same display case at Gather where I found the sweet silver perfume vial that I showed you yesterday...I saw this tiny brass colored metal matchbox. When I asked Deanna the cost... she gave me a look and then put it in the bag with my other treasures. Deanna's that kind of gal.
I knew just what I would do with it...



This tiny ceramic mouse has been kicking around since Kate, now 23, was just a little girl. She used to tag along with me on my flea marketing adventures and, as a born animal lover, had a penchant for all sorts of little animal figurines...
Over the years she collected an entire menagerie of tiny ceramic treasures...
This little mouse looks right at home!



Tomorrow night, I hope to fix a nice dinner, share a glass of wine...



...and then perhaps snuggle up on the sofa with Santa Baby and a good movie...
...I would like to watch a nice romantic comedy or a Jane Austen favorite...
Him? not so much...



I am sure we will be able to come to an agreement! :)

Hoping my replacement power adapter arrives before my laptop and battery fails...
...it's a bit of a race against time!
If I should disappear for a day or two...that will be why!

Happy New Year!

Dear Laura
I may be joining you on that couch tonight!! perhaps 'Becoming Jane'.. last night I watched Pride and Prejudice. Now you may know.. I'm sure I saw a Greer Garson version of that movie as a child??? would love to see that one again...

It's been lots of fun this year looking at all your beautiful trinkets and take on this world. You have a way of showing it all to it's best advantage. I hope next year brings all your dreams to fruition... Have fun xxx Julie

Oh I love the tin, that would make a great altered necklace piece, but I do think the little mouse might object to losing her little nest!! I hope you and Santa Baby enjoy your evening and have a blessed New Year!!
