A Lovely Easter Matchbox & New Swap Announcement

Sugared eggs, lace and flowers....

Sweet springtime verse....

Vintage finishing touches....

The gorgeous Easter matchbox I received from Debi, of
Life In My Studio.
Thank you Debi for this little piece of Easter heaven!

Yes, this is what we begin with. A plain, rather ugly box intended to hold matches but so much fun to alter.

For the new swap in my flickr group we're going to list all our loves: favorite themes, favorite colors, favorite materials, favorite styles. Using our list of loves, our partners will create the perfect altered matchbox gift!
The fun starts HERE!
