I'm so glad you liked the stuff, cackle. It was fun doing our challenge, and I liked trying to incorporate the things you sent.

jillybeans, I first sanded the tin, and then soaked it in a solution of 2 parts bleach to 1 part vinegar, in a disposable plastic container. Outside! It's stinky. I then coated it with a few coats of Mod Podge to (hopefully) keep the rust from flaking off. This was my first time rusting things, but definitely not my last.

What a fantastic idea to send each other a box of stuff to craft from.  Really lovely, rackcoo!

But wait, look at the awesome stuff I got from cackle in return! Here's how she illustrated "It was here where she kept her stories".

First off, the matchbox. With a little key to help lock my stories away.


The lovely side:


And then, because she didn't like the matchbox enough (silly girl!), she sent me this minature bonus tin. I love those little tins, and this one is extra nice, because it's got a flying pig! This turquoise is going to look great in my craft room:




And the piece de resistance! Yes, this is where I keep my stories: under a creepy clown head!! You have no idea how much I love this tin. When we sent supplies, I sent along a couple of vintage clown cupcake picks, and look what happened to one of my clowny friends!


Of course I opened the little box, and I'm not saying what's inside. 


OK, I'll tell you...it contains three tiny dice.  Cheesy

The back, which contains our quote about the stories (sorry it's a bit out of focus):


Thanks so much, cackle! I really love my little works of art!
