Craftsunderground.. ..your tin is so original. Love your creativity and how truly vintage it is. What a little treasure!
pilarfarmer....I love that the wreath lights up. racky's right-it's outrageous in a good way! Your tin is wonderful.

Boy, all the 'new' tin people are adding such a unique flavor to the gallery. I love it!

thank you teag for posting pics of the tin i sent, i can't believe i didn't take any when i finished it (that was a first) thank you for all the nice comments on my tin, i didn't think outside the "tin" like everyone else so i will have to wait for another swap to try that. i love all the tins i have seen. since this is my first altered tin i can't wait to do more. the little lights and music box i have had for years and finally found a way to use it, i think it was for a making a miniature item for a doll house. this was a fun swap, thank you everyone for such inspireing projects

I think if you have flashing lights and music, by definition you thought "outside the tin". Just sayin'.

I believe racky is correct. It's an interesting fact that the things that are in our own heads, what we live with day to day, we think of as normal or rather ordinary. I'm always blown away by what other people have in their heads....what they think is ordinary. It's all a matter of perspective. I think that's what is inspiring about other peoples work.

That's very sweet, miknessevie. I especially like the silhouettes against the music on the top.

Lovely first tin, miknessevie! I really like the paper you chose for the inside and sides of the tin and the silhouettes on the front.
