More Vintage Matchbox swapping!

I sure love finding vintage matchbox swaps.  This time it was a swap from the Blogger's Sisterhood Sorority Summer matchbox swap.  I was matched up with someone I have been partnered with before.  The very talented Sassy mini doll maker Marsha Mees and here is a link to her blog.   She and I missed out on signing up for a springtime swap, and so I contacted her to swap one with me.  She was and is an excellent partner.  I loved mine before and I am crazy about the one she just sent me. 

 Marsha sent me the most lovely French themed matchbox.  I was giddy with delight upon opening it all.  She made a Burlap bag to put the box in and a vintage postcard book. Then inside there were so many wonderful little things.  She has not seen hers yet, so I won't post
that one yet.  But the interesting thing is that we put some of the same kinds of things in our boxes, we both did a French theme, so I guess great minds think alike I am sure of it.

I just can't stand all this French goodness!  Thanks so much Marsha!

Hi Michele,

What a fun trade! I so like the idea of matchboxes, and maybe I'll get some time in the future to participate in a swap. Take care, and big hugs,

Marsha is an awesome partner! She and I were partners in a French themed matchbox swap.
We'll be doing a Grandma's Attic (vintage) swap in my group. Sign-ups are happening right now and we'll be using the large matchboxes this time. Hope you join us!
