White Wednesday- A bit more Christmas

I wish you could see this in person. I created this for a Christmas swap.
An altered cigar box collaged with vintage laces, ribbons, flowers and twigs of gold glitter.
Its filled with wonderful goodies.
 I can't show you the contents yet just in case my swap partner checks my blog.
Hopefully she will like it!

Faith
This is a fabric book with vintage laces for a dear blog friend who's
 going through a very rough time right now.
 I'll keep her identity a secret for her privacy.

A place for her private thoughts,  perhaps some poems or inspirational words.

Sold Thank you Alveen
Loved and Beloved
Next a tiny frozen Charlotte doll necklace encased in resin inside a lovely frame.
She comes in a sweet altered tin.
 More pictures of the inside and information in my Etsy shop

From my Etsy shop
A Christmas ornament, vintage rhinestones surround a canvas transfer from
one of my personal vintage Prayer cards mounted inside
 a vintage tart tin edged with real silver German glass glitter
