Petite Box Swap

Everyone in my group have received their
Petite Boxes - Black and White editions
so now I can reveal the photos

this is how my boxes for my swap partners looks like on the outside
Old book pages, a vintage doily, black ribbon with vintage button
and a sweet image sewn on

here´s what was inside.
We don´t have to correct size matchboxes in Denmark
so I glued two together instead and 
created some with two drawers.


here´s what I received

this is the box from Heidi
so beautiful decorated with ledger paper
a wonderful white flower and an old tip for a fountain pen

and here´s a peak of what was inside

the box was decorated on the inside too - how cute is that

wonderful black and white goodies from Heidi
I especialy love those tiny black and white photos - such a great idea


this was in the package from Lorraine

all of this was extras - awesome halloween goodies
Can´t wait to create with this

and this is the beautiful box Lorraine created for me
I love the Halloween theme and that sweet little girl with fairy wings

Inside the box there were sweet silver stars, a little bling with rhinestones
and the sweeterst little white bird.

Thank you so much
Heidi and Lorraine
for creating these beautiful boxes for me.

Wishing you all a wonderful day
Tina ♥♥♥

Tina you are so clever to glue two smal matchboxes together, you know that I never played along in Heathers Petit inspiration box swaps so far because I couldn't find the right size of matchboxes over here?
Your boxes are enchanting & inspiring and so are the ones from Heidi and Lorraine of course!!!

What a beautiful idea - and so well done, by all of you! I can't imagine how much fun opening them up must have been. You certainly amaze me with what you can fit into one of those tiny little boxes!

I just saw your boxes at Lorraine's blog and had to stop over. What incredible boxes! I love your lace layer...in fact, I loved it so much that I read about ten more entries in your blog and added you to my Google Reader.I have been working with lace lately (and picking up a lot at estate sales) but I am truly a rookie compared to you! What a terrific job you do!!

Sweet Tina,

The box you created is gorgeous! So clever of you to glue two together to make the size you needed! You filled it with so many pretty treasures. The boxes you received are gorgeous too! Beautiful boxes filled with fun and beautiful treasures!

Oh, I LOVE lace! What a wonderful thing to receive, a parcel full of gorgeous lace! :) The old goodies are so pretty too!

I LOVE your gorgeous creations! You are so talented sweet friend, a very gifted artist! I love all the layers of lace you use and the beautiful, sweet images, the old jewelry is the perfect touch as are the old buttons.

So glad you have a new shop. I have all three of your shops in my favorite shops on Etsy! You are amazing! So many beautiful things!!! Speaking of beautiful.. I love your profile photo! You are very beautiful and so sweet too! xo

I love all of your gorgeous flea market finds! I love antique shopping too!

Much love and hugs,
