I received from VegasZombie today - my mailman is finally leaving boxes in my box, and not making me go to the PO to get them.  Now if only he stops putting mail from down the street in my box.

Anyways, this one made me laugh out loud when I opened it.  She went with my Monty Python theme, and Search for the Holy Grail is my favourite of their movies (and I loved Spamalot).  She made a box based on Denis the Peasant's rant about the Lady of the Lake.  The first thing I saw was the watery tart sign and I knew exactly what it was Cheesy



The box was HUGE compared to mine - did you make it???  I am jealous, I should have made my own this time because the storebought ones were tiny compared to what I am used to!



Here is the inside of the box - the rant:



and it was stuffed full - including several great beads that will make an Alice in Wonderland bracelet - I love Alice too!



Thank you very much, and I am glad mine got to you safely too.

I really enjoyed this swap and hope we don't wait so long before doing another one again!  Thanks for organizing this plucky1_08!

Brilliant Monty Python box (and I love that scene).

Great ferns and kitties box.  And the origami one is lovely.

Onyxnox you rock as usual, fantabulous Unicorn head.

The gallery is just exploding with fabulous new boxes!   Cheesy   Love the unicorn box and the pendant too!   The kitty and the Japanese boxes are so sweet!    And the Monty Python one is great!   I haven't seen that movie in many years. 

I've received my boxes too and I'm working on photos now to get them up in the gallery today.   Smiley

And I also received a very cute birdie themed box from onecrazymom!   Smiley



Here it is opened and unpacked:


And all the goodies she packed inside:



This little box reminds me very much of the momma bird we have in our backyard right now.   Smiley   She's also sitting on wee little spotted eggs and guarding her nest (while looking very cute!).   Smiley   Not only did she do my bird theme, but she also sent things to match my other themes like the Hunger games magnet she made, the pearls and a dragon button.   Smiley    And she also made the nestlace pendant.   It's a great matchbox, onecrazy mom, thank you so much!   Smiley
