From Russia with love

Sometimes I get mail that takes my breath away! will you just look at this beautiful matchbox from Julia in Russia.
packed with tiny treasures!
gorgeous cards, and pages in Russian, lace, and a rose wrapped key, oh swoon...

Julia and I also swapped ATC's, this is her Russian fairytale, just divine!


and this has to be my favourite, a set of three inchies decorated with beads and Russian illustrations, they are tiny but have such a wonderful feel and sound to them, like three little tiles, just superb!
as usual I haven't done a very good job of photographing the things I sent Julia! when will I learn?? however, if you pop over to her Blog you can see them! my ATC was inspired by Nathalie using an illustration from Ragamuffin Gal Thank you Julia for this fab swap, you made my day!

M ~
I adore the little piece of miniture art ~ so darling right down to the smallest detail! Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement you give to all of us, and especially me (posting a link to me). You have such a joyful generous and gracious spirit. And that along with your awesome art and take on life, keeps me returning again and again! Bless you!

Wow, these are awesome. I also went to Julia's blog and saw the gorgeous matchbox you created for her, along with the ATC and other goodies. I was quite impressed with the pocket you created on the back of the matchbox you sent. I think it's a super idea and an opportunity for yet another semi-secret place for adding more ephemera.
