Pee-Po Matchbox Dotee

I always pick the things I envy the most. Here i guess is one of those cases where I admire the little chappy inside the matchbox with their happy mini-dotee face and cute green leaf like hair. But that I also admire the little matchbox the fellow travels in. Maybe its the leafy flowery fabric. Actually its almost certainly that. How very cool is it. Its the sort I would buy going, mmmm thats very cool. Then save for that special something, but never actually make it.
Im glad swap-botter: magicjessnrach has the will power to chop it up and make pretty little dotees from it thats for sure. I love the button used on the box too, that I would also save in my horde (yes I have a horde). It looks sewn on, but thats just a few dints in the plastic. Very smartly matched to the fabric too. An Excellent swap for partner swap-botter: ChristyC11.

Potatoe's that talk?

Not a typical post. But I had to comment on this passing photo, found while looking through. Swap-botter: gem's photos of happy things she had recieved from the Etsy Addicts group. Etsy of course being my new obsession too.

I had to comment on this though after reading this...
You say:
the potato says: " ... I YAM what I YAM ..."

It made me giggle. Though I also admired the little nick nacks Gem had recieved from Swap-botter: ellie1200 a partner ive had in the past, who spoils the people she sends to rotten. I lucky we're not potatoes really isnt it?

Orange Its the new Pink

A bright welcome back to swapping was waiting for me when I checked into swap-bot today. How adorable is this warm orange themed swap, sent by Swap-botter: tinymatchboxstudio. Im not sure what I like the best, I love the little bits of ephemera, theres just something about all the twiddly bits of flotsam you can collect from envies like this via. swap-bot. Your not sure half the time why or where it came from but its there and oddly very appealing.

I also love that orange match-box in the corner with the flower on it. Its like woosh! Im an orange flower box. Have a closer look here. Its all very stylish too. An excellent package. Great work tiny on really making your partner happy.
