Leslie, I'm so glad you were able to photograph the rosary. I tried with my phone's camera and they turned out just awful.. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it! Wink

I got home today and pulled this masterpiece out of the mailbox. Wow! I was drooling over all the amazing octopus matchboxes and now I have my own!!! Yippee!
 t33ng1rlsqu4d did an awesome job. It's fantastic!!!!

It's a majestic octopus upon a black textured box with a bone drawer pull.

Here is all the goodies that she somehow managed to stuff into the box. Stickers, beads, buttons, an super cute hand sculpted cat charm for a necklace, google eyes, spider charm, leaf charm, "made with love" charm, and a "Little book of Monsters".

Here is a close up of my favorites. The kitty necklace and the monster book. The monsters are absolutely adorable. I can't believe how lucky I am. Thank you so much t33ng1rlsqu4d! You rock!!!!

I received a lovely box from Jillous today!

A wonderful steampunk suitcase! Complete with leather straps and buckles...so tiny and cute. I love the map covering!

Here's the back, with some lovely gold gears added on. It even has the nubbies for sitting on like a real vintage suitcase Smiley Jillous said she likes to imagine a tiny me having filled this suitcase with bits from my travels--what a cool idea!

The loot, all packed in nice and tight. Is that white thing what I think it is?!?

IT IS! It's a tiny amigurumi Hedwig right off of my wists but in tiny form! How awesome is that...I can't imagine crocheting that tiny. The drawing pendant is from Kate Beaton's historical webcomic Hark! A Vagrant. I love it, Jillous! It makes me crack up. The crystal pendant and tiny magnifying glass with a teeeeeny gear attached are incredible.

More loot! A cool charm that belonged to Jillous's grandma who was a squaredancer (it looks to me like something to do with the Masons!), a metal scottie dog, and other wonderful shinies. Cloisonne beads--my favorite!!

Inside of the box--you can see the book pages lining and the cool art illustration on the inside of the drawer.

Thanks thanks thanks! I love this little box and everything in it. Congrats on your first swap Smiley
