I recycle and since moving into our new home, they haven't brought me a bin to set out so all my boxes are stacked neatly in the garage...where I might go borrow a few to try this out! This is superb! Thanks for sharing.

Those are lovely.I have been in Heather's matchbox swaps...she is announcing another one on June 1. They are such fun to decorate...almost addictive!


Hi Lorraine!!! Your box transformations are so beautiful!! Isn't it a wonderful way to recycle? The possibilities are just endless ~ you are an angel to offer a giveaway too!! It was so good to hear from you Lorraine, hugs and love, Dawn

So supremely charming! I better start saving my lil' boxes. :)

I just think the little matchboxes are the cutest! You are so crafty :)!

These are beautiful, I love how you've remade something that would be recycled into something practical.

Hi Lorraine,

What a beautiful post and I love your pretty boxes. It is always so neat to see what all the talented Gals are doing out there.
Such a precious and lovely gift to giveaway.

Hope that you are having a lovely week.

Oooooooooooooooohhhhhh! I love this! (heading to the table to create...)
Hoosier hugs,

When I want/need inspiration, I come HERE! You kill me Lorraine, such beautiful boxes made from (trash)! I LOVE your boxes. The matchbox is stunning and so are the other two. Love the pretty flowers sticking out of the top one.
I so wish I could take photos like you do as well. I'm gushing to the point of embarrassment here, so I better stop. :)

What you create is always so beautiful and adorned with the prettiest papers and trims. Would you mind sharing where you buy these lovely papers, I love the matchbox!

Your nesting boxes are so sweet Lorraine!
The second one is my fave! :)
I also like to reuse all kind of grocery boxes, like the huge cereal boxes that I used to transform into wall boxes coverd in vintage wallpaper and embellished.
Oh and that new Somerset Life magazine looks so pretty! I just wish they would sell them here in Germany too.
Happy May Day to you and yours!

These are so pretty. What a lovely May day gift.

What a good idea...we throw so much away that could be re-purposed and made beautiful...at least you know how! They are all very cute. (Did you see the blog I mentioned to you in your last post's comment section?) Come say hi :D

Your project is adorable! I saw the ones featured in Somerset Life and have been saving boxes ever since.
