Matchbox received!

I mentioned in my previous post that Jan of Jan's Arty Journey makes the most amazing altered matchboxes - well here's the proof!

I received this beauty in the post today and my photographs really don't do it justice, it is fantastic!  It has a lovely UTEEd altered jigsaw piece on the front as well lace and sewing notions - all the things I love!

Look what was crammed inside! 
 I particularly love the tiny cotton reel and the altered bottle cap.

Everything was beautifully packaged and there was this gorgeous tag attached too!

Thank you again Jan I really love it
 - I do have a problem now though -
how do I fit everything back inside the matchbox?  LOL

Sew special! I cannot believe how much you girls always fit into those tiny little boxes. Super fun.
