I just love these details, with the bottle full of thanks and the lovely stone set in the nest of netting.
Thanks, Diane, things like this make my day. I know everyone loves getting post - except for bills, perhaps, but as I am nearly always on my own it really does brighten my life.
This is an altered, large matchbox, which I distressed to within an inch of it's life! I used some French images from Gecko Galz, which have been painted with aging varnish and then crackled. The sides have been covered with TH Tissue Tape, which has also been varnished and distressed. I put another image inside the tray, and edged it with some ribbon. the outside of the tray has been treated with Inka Gold and some DIs. I finished it off with a Hitch fastener. I will fill it with some French bits and bobs.
Inside the tray.
It has been extremely hot the past couple of days, and tomorrow will be even more so. At the moment, and 10.45 pm it is still 29° outside - it was 38 this afternoon - and unfortunately, also over 30° here in my apartment, so I think I can look forward to a hot night! I kept the curtains drawn to keep off the sun, and got these lovely pics of the shadows of plants and bric-a-brac on my window ledge.
Okay, enough for today! Have a good day, take care and thanks for visiting!
