Little Matchbox girl.....
I had such a wonderful relaxing weekend...the boys are feeling so much better buts it was really cold outside so we stayed indoors quite a bit.
They played and played, got bored, watched DVDs, fought over toys …it’s so hard to keep them entertained especially when they wake up so early and I’m in a zombie state until I have a strong cup of tea …. Lucky Andrew got the grocery shopping out of the way early in the morning and entertained them quite a bit as I had so much to do!
I got to catch up on lots of laundry, cleaning up plus some crafting in the evening.

I really enjoyed decorating this wee matchbox for Natasha’s shabby chic matchbox swap
It’s amazing how many things you can fit inside – I filled mine up with buttons, charms, flower embellishments and beads. Off it goes to Maria in Arizona…I hope it doesn’t get squashed on its long journey.
I think they’d make cute birthday party favours… speaking of birthday’s….it was my god-daughter Victoria’s 2nd birthday yesterday! She is such a darling little thing!! Have a wonderful year sweet girl!!

    very cute! What a great idea, I love the ideas people come up with to revamp things, there are some great vintage bottles around, embellished record cover sleeves and now matchbook swaps, what will be next?

    I love these matchbox swaps, been seeing them on flickr and impressed by what people come up with. Also, isn't it fun to fill such a tiny box with goodies? There's something ingenious about finding wonderful things to put inside...Your box is beautiful! So happy you had a good relaxing weekend. Happy birthday to your god-daughter.

  5. You keep making the prettiest things! Around here at the moment it is pretty cold too, with lots of rain and gales - not nice weather for the end of June in England!

    Have a lovely week :)

  8. I've been enjoying seeing everyone post about their matchboxes more than any swap I've seen. Yours is really great!

  9. A matchbox swap, what a fantastic idea, yours looks adorable. Not too expensive to send either, which is what I find the trouble with swaps, most of the time the postage costs more than what you acutally paid for the swap items ! - love Julia x
