I have started to get the creative juices going with a few swaps, such as a large matchbox swap using only vintage and antique items.  I am thankful that there are others out there that appreciate the uniqueness of the old items, that I feel, tell a story.  My 'Mid-Summer Night's Dream' is a fairy Queen's cradle for an old china Charlotte doll, peacock feather, old German text strips, moss and a jewel.  The 'queen' is an old tintype painted with Golden's acrylics and placed on a brooch, two screen brass numbers added, a tin corner adornment put on top, and all arranged on a velvet half of an old photograph case.  I made a similar one to keep. ~Lou
