I recently participated in Vintage Dragonfly's Winter 'Whites Matchbox Swap.'  I was partnered with JoAnne of Vintage Dragonfly, and we exchanged our matchboxes about a week and a half ago.  I have been her partner a few times, and I am never disappointed.

Below is the matchbox that I sent out to JoAnne.  I sure had fun creating this one for her.  She is so generous and works so hard hosting these monthly swaps.  Thanks for all you do JoAnne!
 I have taken the design of this one from a couple that I have received.  Up on little feet and opening like a trunk would.


 Inside I filled it with buttons, embellishments, baubles and anything I could find that was related to winter without shouting Christmas.  I also sent another larger oval white framed picture, and some other goodies.  I love these matchbox swaps, so much.  It is just plain old fun,.

Now, here is the matchbox that I received from JoAnne.  

It's just so pretty and reminds me of an enchanted wintry forest.  Like the one in the movie 'Narnia.'
I swoon over stuff like this, especially the frozen Charlotte doll from Germany
I have already found uses for some of these sweet embellishments on some of the things I have made.
Now onto the next swaps I am involved in for Valentine's Day.  Moving on. . . . . . . . . . . .
