I received a pretty blue matchbox with a painted butterfly from ninaprettyballerina:


She has some incredible packing skills,  It was crammed packed full.  Opening it in my car was not the smartest idea.

Here's another pic of the box and a pretty crocheted butterfly extra on some cording. 


Sideview with more butterflies.  A couple fell off while I was man-handling the box but I can easily glue them back on


And the goodies - tons of butterflies Smiley


Thanks!

I just received a very cool box from Glamis. She went with my bees theme. My pictures are pretty crappy, but maybe she has better ones.


The overall view

Close-up of the front.

And the very cool contents. My favorite is probably the Totoro pin (which I wore to work today) and the mini Tardis and red rose. Such tiny details!

Thanks soo much Glamis!

PS- I would totally be up for another round, I have a ton of ideas to make mine spiffier.

I received two amazing matchboxes this week -- I am in love with both of them!

First, from SusieApple -- she chose my nature theme. Check out how beautiful this is! It's clay and just generally gorgeous. Mr. SonjaBoo does a lot of nature photography and thinks this is pretty awesome.



And with goodies, including an awesome bee pendant and inchies!




I also received from r0ckwithme, who chose my writing/typewriter theme. I am a writer by trade, and this is going on my desk at work!


And with goodies -- check out the keyboard inside! How clever is that?



Thank you ladies for an awesome swap! Grin
