A Burlap Bee & Matchbox #9

Yesterday we had our office Christmas get together.  In years past we met on Sunday evenings at a restaurant ~ but yesterday we met for lunch at Geoff & Peggy's home.  I brought my camera but was too busy having fun ~ I took one picture the whole afternoon.  But even though I have no picture proof ~ I can tell you that I had a wonderful time!!  I'll try to do another post all about it, but for now here's a peek at one of my favorite gifts.  I received some wonderful gifts from my co-workers and my boss (loved them all) but
something about this gift from Peggy just delighted me.  This is a photo from the website ~ Ballard designs ~ isn't this tote bag great?!  It's BIG! About 15 x 22 inches.  
I love this bag and I can't wait to fill it up with "stuff"! 


Matchbox #9

Isn't this a pretty pink matchbox. The colors are so different & fun and I love the little bit of bling!  Tucked inside is one of my favorite things. A little embellished tile and it has one of my favorite words on it!  JOY.  This matchbox came from Amy of Paper Trails  By A Paper Lover.  Thank you Amy ~ I love it!!

I love how you are presenting all the boxes that you receive. I too have a box from Amy later on in the swap. Can't wait to open up now.

We do our Christmas party right at the store while we're working. Not much of a party but then there's not much work going on that day
Love that tote bag, and the matchbox is super cute.
