Last craft porject

I have a granddaughter that LOVES horses. She has a birthday coming up soon so I had to put on the thinking cap and see if I could come up with something. I collect wallpaper books whenever I can get them and when I saw the pictures of the horses I knew it would have to be a project for Mia, so that was the source of my pictures. The tin on the left was picked up at a thrift store for .50 and the Kleenex holder was a whole .25. It just so happen they were the same color. If you click on the picture you will probably be able to read the letters on the tin.....they are MB, which in this case stood for the maker of the cookies, however MB just happens to be Mia's initials. This was a blessing I did not even notice until I started to clean the tin. (God is so good, yes I am one of those that believe God is in control, He knows what we need, He desires to bless us, and the footsteps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord, I do not believe in coincidence.) The picture covered their add, the plaque with her name I made out of clay. The inside I covered with felt. I think it is fairly obvious what I did to the Kleenex box. So there you have it. It is a wonderful 67 here this morning so I must get busy in the yard.

What a find to have Mia's initials on that tin! I'm sure she will love these gifts and maybe years from now she'll write about them and show pictures of them on her own blog! They are sure to be keepsakes....afterall Grandma made them!

PS - these could have been for us when we were younger!
