Shocked **speechless**  Shocked

What kinds of materials did you use for your embellishments? This is insanely cool.

The tin is papered with one of the many books I keep around for tearing up then 'stained' with paint to age it a bit. The roof and door are made of wood that I forced my husband to cut for me. The roof trim, doorknob and door hinges are from the dollar store sold as photocorners. The windows are little frames sold for charm bracelets (also from the dollar store). The coin is from a long past trip to the UK (I still have a coin purse full of change from that trip!) The cat was a shrinky-dink. The curtains were cut up from tea-dyed lace. The chimney I made from paper clay. Lastly, the ruler is just a paper one I picked up from Ikea Smiley

On the inside... the witches hats are made of leather, and their wands are sewing needles. I've also used paper, glitter, ribbon, a star button and lace.

Phew! I think that's it.

Gorgeous! What a great idea and execution! Sorry the cat jumped off. You never know with cats, do you? They are such persnickety creatures!

Now I realize why racky was so excited on having you as a swap partner.  I met her in Atlanta when she was buying supplies for this swap.  I need to find the gallery thread for this swap and see what racky came up with her shopping spree.  Great work!
