This morning, the postman delivered a second wonderful little package. Another door prize from one of the blogs I had visited during the OWOH event. I was really looking forward to this one, as I had always wanted to see one of these in real life. What? A tiny little matchbox, altered into something really exquisite.
One of these days I will remember to be patient and take pictures before I open things. I will try, I really will, but unfortunately today was not yet that day. This gift was also wrapped in such pretty paper, look at these gorgeous birds! -
Exquisite small treasure -
I loved the teeny weeny little knob on the drawer -
Every side of the little box was decorated -
The top of the box is decorated with an altered puzzle piece, I wish I knew how that was done, it is gorgeous -
The altered matchbox was filled with tiny little treasures -
And even the inside of the box was so beautifully decorated! -
The creator of this beautiful piece is the very talented Jan. Have a look at her blog here.
Thank you so much, Jan, I adore this altered matchbox. It has inspired me to have a go myself one of these days. As soon as I have worked my way through my must-do list.
That is all for today, back tomorrow with a few little finds from an indoor boot fair this Sunday.
