Received from Cinnamoon today Grin Lots of cuteness! No sooner had I snapped some pics than the earrings went into my ears where they have stayed for the 6 hours since then:P
Here is a pic of the pretty box with adorable teeny button flowers on it, plus all the innards.

Here is a closer pic of the contents!

My faves are the earrings, the beautiful tree (which may end up as an ornament in one of my 1/12 scale dollhouse rooms), and the glass birdhouse bead. Although that sticker is pretty darned cute too, and so is the bone charm, and the crayon button... Obviously I love everything!
Thanks for a fun swap Cinnamoon Smiley

I got my matchboxes this last weekend and they are both AMAZING!!!

I took pics with my camera 2 days ago, but still can't find the cable to connect it to my computer, so I had to resort to using my camera phone, but here they are!

The first is from nllchihuahua:

The super-cute box:

And the awesome contents:

The second is from juliminustheE:

The gorgeous box:

And the incredible inside:

Complete with a passport, world map, and cash.

Thanks so much you two!!!
I love my boxes very, very much!!!

I received from dablondeemu. I love all things sea related.

Its a ship in a bottle matchbox!

and here is the matchbox I made her.
She said she likes robots so I made a robot ladybug thing.

I just think it's very funny that at least three of us had the same idea of turning the matchbox into a suitcase! Mine came when someone commented that an early box in the Gallery (can't remember which one) reminded her of the inside of an antique suitcase. And that reminded me that I have a piece of art deco lining paper from a 1930's trunk that I've hoarding. (It's the paper lining the matchbox suitcase.) The rest just followed from what materials were available in my stash.

My new favourites in this Gallery (and it changes with each new page!) are the Japanese ones. Swap Envy! Tongue  And thanks Teachart for introducing us to Marcel Dzama. How can I have missed him?

And never mind a matchbox suitcase swap, how about a tiny book swap?

Thank you soooo much hgddm for uploading fabulous photos of my even-more-fabulous and incredibly tiny bookbox!! I accidentally packed my camera cord, and have only now unearthed it... so now, more pictures  Grin

My Hufflepuff-themed matchbox... Diminutive Book of Diminutivity

Imagine my surprise when I opened my book and a KEY flew out!

Shiny beautiful everything, packed away so neatly (the key needed to stretch its wings after being cramped up for so long)

A Hufflepuff treasure trove! House pride earrings, Luna's shimmering patronus pin, and my very own Helga Hufflepuff golden cup (I'd always imagined it as a teacup!)

Everything together with my note from hgddm. This was a lovely first swap for me, and so much fun!

I organized a one tiny book swap last year!!! It was loads of diminutive excellence... Maybe I should start thinking about opening a round 2  Smiley

Every time I look at this gallery, I fall more and more in love with tiny! SO many wonderful ideas! Your suitcase was so exceptionally good, Wulf.

And jillous, I'm so jealous of Luna's patronus pin!

I received my matchbox from juliminusthee, it's a cute little camera!

So much cute stuff in here! I love the little camera charm!

its so hard to keep up with the gallery!  so many wonderful additions every day!
Noooo---please oh please another round One Tiny Book!  that was soooo much fun!!!

on an organizer note, i've gotten a little behind (ah life, it sometimes gets in the way of fun stuff!) so if you could take a look at the front page of the gallery and see if i've got your status color coded correctly, and let me know if it isn't, that would be much appreciated!
also, if you are in tlk's group, she has been a busy busy girl and is working her way through updating things on her end as well!

great swap everyone, such a fantastic group of artists Smiley

I finally found what I needed to upload some pictures! Here's what Foxy Sam's awesome matchbox came in: A closeup of the cutest, smallest crocheted kitty: And a group shot of all of my mini critters hanging out on one of my tchotchke shelves (she sent me the bobblehead kiwi as part of our personal swap):
Thanks again for an amazing swap, Foxy Sam- I love everything you sent so much!!!!
