I made that for you!

I still don't know what's going on with my second box I'm supposed to receive, I don't know who is actually supposed to be sending it. Something got botched up.  Embarrassed

I got my matchboxes days ago, but needed to finish a final research paper. Sleep deprived, but totally posting them now!  Cheesy

This super duper lovely match box is from fabricfriend. It's one of those swaps, where shooooot, I wish I could have done better for her. We probably all have those moments!

The fishy pendants are just freaking adorable, and the box is sculpted and painted and awesome (sorry for a less great image)!

This handmade felt matchbox was from my 2nd partner stove037 - and it was apparently made to fit the CALAMAR (no i in it, weirdly enough!) pendant that is crazy silly and awesome. It's hanging on my bulletin board telling me to make a necklace for it soon. Maybe with the fish fabric friend sent me. I think the octopus button is my favorite thing ever from the box.

Thank you guys! You both added to my slowly growing collection of whimsies, which I appreciate so much! And you both sent me some of those swirly metal bits - that were super duper wanted!  Cheesy

I just got this lovely box from Ramona Q.

How nice is that?!?!?

I really, really love the tiny "pearl of wisdom".  I want to keep it in my wallet.

Thank you SO much...I absolutely love it!!!

I Must say, I looked at the other galleries and this one is by far the best lol. So awesome to drool over look at!

And you have no idea how nicely Stargate anything fits into my home! I seriously need to see about starting a swap for it, or perhaps the new show Sanctuary that all it's actors keep turning up on.

I received from Hgddm (whose lovely art is also the pic for this swap). My camera has died so I do not have the best pictures unfortunately but it is a great steampunkish box with metal sides!

I received from cherryrose!
She made a cute black and red themed matchbox that looks a bit "used" with spiders and paper lace on it:

Here is all the stuff packed:

and laid out:

stamps, buttons, plastic insects, a sweet dragonfly charm, google eyes, a wooden butterfly clip, beads.....

Here is a close up of my favourite, a tiny metal rose and a cool fly:

Thank you for a wounderfull matchbox cherryrose. I will put everything to good use

I am collecting any kind of skull shaped beads and patches-feel free to send me spare ones  ;-)

Wowsers! So much amazingness in this thread!
Some of my faves from the last several pages (that I can remember) are:
the cool talisman charm & magnifying glass that hgddm received
dissection lab that jmiller614 received
and StarFire's goldfish box.
But I know there were lots of other beautiful ones!

I received my awesome lil box from fabricfriend the other day...

here it is looking all cute wrapped up (the paper is a sewing patter)! Note the lil lady bug? He wanted in on the picture too.  Wink

It's a teeny tiny freakshow in a box!

All the pictures are so neat.

And this bonus pic just makes me laugh! My 2 year old sat and waited patiently while I took pics but could only take it for so long before helping herself to the goodies.

Thanks Fabricfriend! And thanks everyone for a fun swap.  Smiley
