Valentine's Day Altered Matchbox Swap - Part 2

Belle always enjoying barking at our mail carrier.  This morning I heard her low growl explode into her deep bark and I knew it must be our mail carrier - it was.
What an awful day for our mail carriers as it is negative degrees without wind chills.  I know it is their job to deliver the mail, but I would not do it on a day like today,
so a big THANK YOU to all our mail carriers!

Our recent weather has delayed the arrival of a much anticipated package...
my Valentine's Day Matchbox Swap from Lynn L. 

Upon opening our mail box I found one item, a box just the perfect size for a matchbox swap.
I pulled out the box, turned it over and YES, it had Lynn's return address on it!

Wow, Wow, Wow!
Not only was there Lynn's matchbox, but two packets.  

This packet enclosed a vintage button card - do you remember buttons 10¢?
And this packet held 

a sweet Valentine ornament she made

 I immediately fell-in-LOVE with Lynn's altered matchbox 
the front,

the roof, the sides

and the back are full of the sweetest details!

The trinkets inside were perfectly me

Lynn, Thank you for your matchbox swap to me - it is amazing and I LOVE it!

Thank you again JoAnne from Vintage Dragonfly for hosting this swap! 

The perks of swapping are sharing creative art, trinkets and the best perk, making friends.  

Hugs ~ Tami
