Oh My Gosh! If you all remember, I entered the matchbox exchange over at the Speckled Egg. I recieved one of my boxes on Saturday and the other one today. I am overwhelmed by all the wonderful things that these ladies managed to get into these boxes....it was too much for the matchboxes so they both placed things within the box that the matchbox was shipped in. This first box is the one I recieved from Lisa over at Happyscrapper72.blogspot.com.
I love those rosettes on top of the box. It was decorated beautifully as you can see.
Iside it I found all of this wonderful stuff! There are crocheted flowers, tags, buttons and punched flowers along with other embellishments. I look forward to creating something with all these wonderful items.
Here is a closeup of the buttons, punched flowers, the crystal charm, and the decorated inside of the box. I'm sorry for the crummy picture. I lost my natural light and the flash went off. Thank you so much Lisa. I love it all so much and can't wait to start creating with it all.
This is a picture of the top of the box that I recieved from Kathy over at Countrychintz.blogspot.com. It is absolutely gorgeous! I love it. I was overwhelmed by all that Kathy sent to me!
Just look at all this wonderful stuff! I can't even begin to describe it all! There are all kinds of ephemera to use in projects along with tags, charms, buttons, flowers, lace and ribbons. I was completely amazed at everything.
Here is a close up of just some of the wonderful things that Kathy put into the box that carried the box. There is no way that it could have all been placed into the matchbox. Thank you so very much Kathy. I don't even have words that cover how grateful I am for everything that you sent.
Thank you Theresa for hosting this exchange. I had so much fun both making and filling the boxes that I sent out as well as the anticipation and excitement of recieving the boxes from these wonderful ladies. I look forward to another swap. I am more prepared for the next one since this was my first.
