More great boxes!  I especially love the bird in the tree and the pocket watch.  The sculpting is amazing given the small scale!

All these matchboxes are amazing.  You guys are coming up with some very unique different looks.  Wish I was talented with clay and other mediums like that.

I received from Ninaprettyballerina yesterday
It is a butterfly galore!!

all kinds of  cute butterfly embellishments, stickers, pretty beads and some findings. I especially like the two tiny "safety" eyes at the bottom left

Thank you very much Nina!


I am collecting any kind of skull shaped beads and patches-feel free to send me spare ones  ;-)

I received from avesthel on Friday but couldn't post pix til today. It is such a wonderful matchbox!  She painted (?) some red poppies like a miniature painting. Inside there were were loads of goodies:

Red buttons, some sequins, a pair of red beaded earrings, stamps, beads, a sewing machine charm (which I adore!!), and in the bottom of the matchbox was a tiny butterfly! So cute!  Thanks so much!

I have a very cool matchbox to add to the bunch. It's from Avesthel. She did thorough stalking and superb crafting. Onwards with the photos of the greatness:

So, my theme was "The Weird & Strange & Bizarre & Odd". This was how it looked when I first opened it. I attempted to re-pack it at one point and failed. She crammed so much inside!

SO, she altered an old cabinet photo to suit my adoration for The Straaaange. The lady has antlers with Easter eggs dangling on them!!! She also has matchstick legs. And it's all painted a mustardy yellow- my favorite.

The contents were very thoughtful. She took ideas and inspiration from my pinterest and my etsy faves. Included were bobby pins and buttons to make button hair accessories. Beads and sequins. A button with a deer in it! And this is just half of it...

She also made me leaf earrings (That I wore today for Easter. They went perfect with my bunny ears!) And an extra leaf to make myself a pendant or ring. I also got a unique charm and a peace sign charm. A weird little stamp.

It was all just so wonderful. I loved it. I can only hope she'll like mine just as much!
