Thanks everyone!  I'm so glad you like it, Bigmouth.  There was a little trial and error involved (has anyone ever seen what E6000 does to styrofoam?), but I was happy with how it turned out.  Thanks for picking such a delicious theme and for the wonderful tins you made for me. 

Babbetto, I'll be sure to let you know when we kick off another round of this.  I think I'm up for organizing another when this is done. 

Also, I got a great zoo tin from lapoli yesterday!  I'm off to get pictures right now.

Okay, here are the pics of the adorable vintage zoo tin lapoli sent me:



Here's the inside of the lid which magically became the outside of the lid.  She put the lid on backwards with a loop of string so that the 3D cage could be the outside.  Very clever.  I'd never heard of Marlin Perkins, but Wikipedia gave me a little info. Apparently he hosted a show called Zoo Parade way back in the fifties. 

And inside the tin:



PHARMACEUTICALS!!!  No not really, but just as good.  These are the little sponge creatures that you put in water to release them. 



I got an action shot.  I think that these might actually be dinosaurs, but until someone convinces me otherwise, the red one is an anteater with a beaver tail and the green one is a monkey with a giant growth on his chest.  I'm saving the others for whenever I need a little pick-me-up.  I've thus far resisted the urge to suck on one. 

Also in the tin:



A butterfly charm, a cute little fox bookmark, and a sharky shower gel which smells wonderful and I can't wait to use it. 

Finally, here are some close-ups of the different sides of the tin:





Thank you so much, lapoli! This is really adorable!

So the sponges might be zoo animals after all.  I couldn't resist doing another one and I'm pretty sure it's a giraffe.

The nesting doll tins are so cute. I love that there are nesting tins inside, great way to stick with the theme. And the toaster tin is just awesome! I've had some of those foam animal capsules before, they're fun.

I am loving all the creativity in this swap. I can't wait for the next round!
