I received from crazyalien8!  She did a great job of mixing themes from my questionnaire!

A beautiful art nouveau lady on the outside with a witches hat to reflect the HP theme.  All the sides of the box, inside and outside are covered with that pretty paper.

Owl stamp at the bottom of the box.

All the goodies! House letter inchies, tiny wand, beads, stars and vintage stamps!

Thanks so much crazyalien!  I just <3 it!

Snap, half an hour of posting and the computer went haywire and all is gone.

Second try.

CherryRose and Glamis really understood my hang for feminine, victorian and purdy things.
Cherry send this lovely adorned box.  Note the detail in her decorations.

Contents, buttons, sparkly things, butterflies, a dragonfly, stamps, ribbon and a peg butterfly paperholder.

Yes, Glamis hit the nail on the head as well.  Look inside the box, she embroidered a doggie. I'll probably frame it and make a keychain out of it, a lable.  See the beads and pearls on the box? YES!

sideshot to show the purple glitter and a very nice length of lace, PINK lace.

All moved into the cabinet of pretty things. I love love love it and feel generously spoiled.

Can't rotate this pic but the idea is clear.. it's drop dead gorgeous.
Ladies, many many thanks and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is fantastic.

Hope to use some of the lovelies in future but for now they stay in the cabinet of pretties  Smiley

Lovely box, Look at those beads!

Super stuffed!

The contents: pretty ribbon with butterflies all over, a bow, butterfly stickers, filigree like butterflies, butterfly charms buttons, more butterflies, sequins round and heart shaped, clay cakes (OMG soo from my wist I squeed),  a charm of a birdcage.
I love every bit and feel very lucky. Thank a lot Glamis!

Here is my lovely matchbox from stove037! She made it out of felt and really did a good job with my forest animal theme.

First the front of the matchbox with a tree and tiny deer!

The back with an embroidered bunny

Contents: deer marble magnet, fabric button, tree earings, and owl charm, and more! Thanks again Stove, I love it!
