I can't get enough!

I think I am addicted to matchbox swapping.  I have received four of them now and am surely thinking how can I do more of them and with whom.  It is so fun to see the tiny vintage items one can stuff into a standard size matchbox.  Here is the latest spring vintage swap I did with Marsha at Sassy mini dolls.  She is seriously talented in the art of dollmaking. I think getting to know the person you are swapping with is most of the fun!  .
This is the one I sent out to her, along with the following 3 photos below.
 The inside upon opening!

 Okay and here is what Marsha sent to me.  I was spoiled good.  Thanks so much to that mini doll wizard.  You have to seriously check out her Sassy mini dolls and miniatures!

 Look at all this wonderful vintage goodness.  I love the antique clothespins and trims!

 This is a beautiful hanky!
 The crochet basket below is so sweet.  It was not in the box but tucked into the package.  It has a darling egg nested right inside.

Oh my goodness, Michele! So much vintage loveliness packed in those little boxes! I haven't participated in one of those yet, but I may just have to very soon!

Hope you're having a wonderful day...

Hi Michele,

Looks like you've got some excellent goodies there. My hands aren't cooperating like they used to, otherwise I'd love to work on a tiny little gem of a matchbox. Maybe something a little larger, like the large old fashioned stick matchboxes would work. If I figure out a way, I'd love to trade with you.

Hugs,
Meri

Hi Michele, Thank you for the sweet comments you left for me, and thanks so much for following! I love your paper projects and hope they will inspire me to get back to doing more of that myself.
Blessings, Angela
