Grandma's Attic Matchbox swap: my turn!

I was so spoiled by the matchbox I received from Becs in the Grandma's Attic Matchbox swap!  Becs, who blogs over at Rebecca Rose Designs, sent me just everything I love!
First -- I opened the package to see this really wonderful silver and red tin packed in great rosy red toile tissue paper...
 which was piled high inside with all these great trims! 
 At the bottom, I found this assortment of ephemera:
including that yummy chartreuse vintage, flocked wallpaper...
and this sweet notecard!
Then, wrapped in lace and tied with seam binding, the matchbox itself.  I cannot believe how gorgeous that lace flower with the pearly button in the middle is!
I really love the colors in this wallpaper -- and look at the button "drawer" pull!  ~swoon~
Inside, Becs stuffed it full of beautiful little things:
Among my favorites are the buttons:
this itty-bitty tin:
and the frozen Charlotte:
I adore the trim to the left of Charlotte, too.

I am so inspired!  I must make time this week to create with all the goodies!  If you want to what I sent my own partner in the swap, I blogged about it here.

Laurie...you got the best partner you could have gotten! I had the pleasure of meeting Becs in Florida earlier this year at the Marie Antoinette event and she's so lovely! What fabulous treasures she sent you!

Love,
