Visions of Sugarplums event - Day Three!

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to the Visions of Sugarplums event, day three!  Are you ready for even more Christmas inspiration & give-aways??  I hope you're enjoy this week long event!!

Here's my share today...

My sweet hubby created this rustic box for me to fill with festive things for the holidays!  
I tucked a vintage cardboard old world Santa behind the greens and glued Scrabble game pieces to a glitter-taped clothespin. It clips right onto the pine bough. too cool!

For my snowy candle, I filled a pint mason jar half full of salt (or use Epsom salt), wrapped some jute twine around the top and put a tea candle inside. (I used a battery operated tea light) And added some candy canes and an antique glass Christmas bauble with flocking.

Seeing all these pretty trinkets makes me smile!

Here are the blogs you'll want to visit today-

There will be fabulous sponsors throughout this week long event so be sure to comment on all the blogs. Each comment is an entry for the give-aways!!

Here are today's sponsors...
$20 gift certificate for My Time Made Easy,

I hope you enjoyed my project today! This is my last post for the Visions of Sugarplums event, I'm participating in other hops Thursday & Friday and didn't want to overlap posts.  Thank you Lori for having me & being flexible with my schedule so I could play along!!

Merry Christmas!

Love how you filled your hubby's rustic box Maria. My DH and I love to play Scrabble so I'm partial to the clothes pin. The Old World Santa, Mason jar candle, flocked ornament and candy canes are beautiful fillers! We will miss you but thanks for the inspiration. :)
