I didn't even realize we had a gallery!!  lol.  so many neat matchboxes and such cool tiny stuff!

and now I get to add to it!!!  I received from blupaisan today!  yay!

the box:

everything (except 1 item) in the box:

everything out of the box:

the googly eyes are really orange, but for some reason they show up red.  hmmm...anyways, one of them is evil.  there is nothing sticky on it, it's just loaded with static and wouldn't leave me alone!!!  lol.  there's also some watch parts (always in need of those), a really neat bead that actually looks kinda like bone, a pretty magnet, and a pair of origami butterfly earrings from my wist!!!

she also sent me an ATC called "A Beautiful Mess":

this swap is so fun!  I'm gonna want to do this again!!!!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will swap for ceramic bisque steer skulls!
Always in need of things like these!!!
Found another soup of acrylic, seed, glass, wood, polymer, metal, and shell beads!  PM me if you want to swap!!
LOTS of fabric available too

my toddler just recently discovered she adores that movie!  i love it, so cute Smiley
The fond memories I mentioned are of holding my nephews when they were small and singing yellow submarine as a lullaby.

That Beatles box is adorable! Is that Ringo? Cheesy

Yes.. and I love all the extra stickers.. I think one or two of them might make their way to an altered puzzle piece.

I received from timpani~jax today!

And because a picture can say a thousand words I'll move straight on to the pictures:

the package contained a letter from timpani~jax (on colorfull handmade, selfmade? paper)and the carefully wrapped box.

the box:

the front with one of Muchas beautifully art nouveau ladies

the back, with an intricate patter timpani~jax copied from the embroidery in the Mucha painting (hoe clever is that!?!)

the contents as it was in the box, you can see the cute lace and the felted balls, which I think those Will become part of a necklace...... but that's another thread (of thought Smiley )

the whole contents:

She went with the nature /art nouveau theme and as I mentioned I like felted objects she included four small felted balls, and a scrabble tile pendant, some beads and charms a tiny compass, a tiny bottle with a cork, a old fashioned pen, a leather leaf and the afore mentioned lace.
I love everything!


I'm never having kids, I hear they take 9 months to download

I'm so glad you like it! I had so much fun finding all the tiny things. The paper is handmade but not by me, I cheated and bought it. I got slightly obsessed with that embroidery pattern and think I might stitch it onto something.
