I wanted to post photos of the boxes from my wonderfully patient partners- I received a while ago, but couldn't post pix and didn't get my boxes to them on time.  Thank you - pretty hate machine and teachart!!!  They both are wonderful boxes filled with personal loves of mine.... on to the pix:

from teachart: outside of the box with contents:


back of the box- great art nouveau print!


contents:


my favorite is the TINY LITTLE matches from Amsterdam, tiny little old pins, and foreign stamps!  What wonderful treasures!! Thank you!

And for some reason my photos from prettyhatemachine haven't come through, so I am going to try to download them and post later...I'm sorry!!

Here is the beautiful box I received from Amaryllisroze:

I really love that shade of blue/teal. It is close to the top of my list of favourite colours:)
When I opened the package I was surprised at the weight but I found out why it was so heavy.
ALL the goodies inside were metal! Lots of great stuff:

It is hard to say which were my favourites but some definite highlights are the roses, the "Family" clip and the watch face/gears.
Thanks so much!

I'm glad you like it. Even though most of my stuff is based in paper, anything I have small enough to go in a matchbox is metal!

Unfortunately my partner has gone MIA. Luckily I snapped two quick pictures before I mailed off her matchbox a month ago and I finally, FINALLY got them off my camera tonight! Had to buy a new card reader because our house ate the old one. My little matchbox feels so humble next to all the awesome boxes that have already been posted.


I used a cute bird patterned scrapbook paper to create the matchbox base. My partner is in to nature stuff and bird houses so that is the theme I went with. The birdhouse is cut from cloth I dyed with Easter egg dye. I added some needlepoint detail to give the birdhouse a bit more interest.


I don't have a pic of all the items laid out, just the drawer already stuffed. Inside the drawer were a handmade butterfly pendant, an opalescent heart stone, a mini wheelbarrow, some beads, some buttons, a scrabble tile, and a red jewel pendant among other things.

I received from TCMatteson this weekend.  She had some personal issues that necessitated a late mailing unfortunately but I think my beautiful box was worth the wait!

I gave her the rather broad theme of nature and she made me a box topped with a gorgeous wire and bead Tree of Life!
With all the goodies
  lovely inchies, flower beads, tiny buttons, a little bottle of dried wildflowers, a sweet butterfly clasp
And Earrings!!
The jellyfish are straight off my wists.  I think they're my favorite!!
I also got a simply yummy smelling soap as an extra!
Thank you, TC!!!!  I love the box and I'm wearing the jellyfish earring as I type!
