so many beautiful boxes- I've missed quite a few, our weather in Memphis has been beyond horrible.  As I type I am listening to tornado sirens.... yuck.  My i-net's been crappy because of it, so I've missed soooo much!  I have to say those octo boxes are so coveted!  What talent! 

A note about Wulf's Gogo- my son named it right off the bat (he collects them, too!)  Of course I forgot the name, but I admit they are funny addictive sorts- I have a few perched on my monitor!

Keep the beauties coming!

I received from tree27!  Sorry the picture quality isn't that great.  It's really overcast today.

Here is the outside!  I love the heart charm on the front.

And the goodies inside:

So many tiny things!  Harry Potter shrinky dinks, bottlecap magnet, stickers, charms and flowers!  I think the heart, wishbone and shrinkies are my favourites but I love everything so it's hard to choose!  Thanks tree27!  I'm just finishing up yours and I'll send it!  Hope you like it as much as I liked mine!

It's just great to see so many different ideas and creativity. Who would have thought you can do so many things with/to a matchbox?
Really enjoying this gallery.

I received from the lovely Smallhold yesterday, because I was home late from work, I'm posting pics today!

She made me an awesome travel set! Smallhold says the fake leather is from Yves Saint Laurent, my first thought was Louis Vuitton, either way it's great! So awesome I gasped when I opened the package and so awesome I have to post more pic's of the set:

If I was twelve I would totally play that my barbies were going on vacation with these suitcases and bag!
Traveling wasn't one of my themes but my partners could choose anything else! Smallhold explained she encourages young people like me to travel while they can. I couldn't agree more! The places these suitcases have been include Singapore, Paris, Cairo, San Francisco, New York and Mumbai. I wonder if you visted all these places Smallhold?

Smallhold paid attention to detail! Look at the underside of the suitcases!

The smalled suitcase was filled with goodies, the pic a bit bad, because I had to take the pic when it was dark outside. (You must understand I couldn't possibly wait another day to unpack my suitcase!)

Goodies! A pin with feet, velvet choker, flower shapes buttons <3, lots of sequins, furry little balls and a pretty pendant!

Thank you so much Smallhold!

What a clever idea! I love the little mini suitcases. And leather...ooo la la, fancy!  Smiley

I love all of these clever ideas to disguise the matchbox! I've been working on an idea of my own, not sure how clever (or original  Cheesy ) it is, but's it's new territory for me and I'm finding it....a learning experience. And stressful. So there's your clue, nostephot  Grin

Off to snap some pics of the matchbox I received (quite some time ago, sorrry!!) and the neat-o extras.

So much cool stuff! Those suitcases are neat! My favorites so far are all the tiny jars and the little nautical telescope with adorable barnacles. Who knew barnacles could be so cute?

So many lovely, clever and inventive matchboxes!!!!!
The Hogwarts box is so cute and the luggage is brilliant!
I need to add Shrinky Dink charms to my list of things to learn to do!
