More vintage Matchbox swapping

Laurie, of Indulge yourshelf sent me this cute spring vintage decorated matchbox. She was to late to get in on the "Petite matchbox swap-Flea market edition," so I asked her if she wanted to swap one with me. I received it on Friday, and again, had so much fun opening it, as I always do with any matchbox full of goodies.  There was some really fun stuff in there. I love swapping matchboxes! A very cool vintage piece of jewelry adorns the top of the box covered in music sheets.

Vintage buttons, crocheted rose, vintage ephemera and trims lace and millenery flowers etc.
Here is my Spring themed vintage box I sent to Laurie.
I found this darling little tiny procelain figurine, clothes pins, piece of vintage fabric, vintage clippie, charms etc. The items that we put in that were the same were, an old colored floral hanky, millinery flowers, stamens, vintage buttons, and foil embossed dresdens. We must think alike and that to me is part of the fun of it. It's not like we talk about what we are putting in, but when you swap with someone, who really gets it right on what kinds of things you like. I just love love love swapping.
