{Altered Tin Type Box & Swap}

This sweet antique tin type has been in my possession for over a year. I have wanted to created something with the darling image for quite some time. I found this cigar box and felt it was the perfect backdrop for the photo.

I used old sheet music on the insert portion of the box, vintage dress remnants, tin type photo, silver photo corners, and silk flower clusters.

I love the soft silk flower cluster against the photo. It feels very time worn.

Little onyx colored latches open and shut the box.

Patti G. from pattis-creations.blogspot.com contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I would be interested in doing a prayer flag/banner swap. I rarely participate in swaps, but I was tickled to join a one on one with her. I received this adorable flag that Patti created in the mail yesterday. Her package was a happy spot in my day as I await my surgery next week.

I love the way she dyed the fabrics. Patti even sent an extra piece, some vintage sheet music, and a beautiful piece of lace and charm. So sweet!
