I have two projects to share with you, so I'll dive right in and not spend a lot of time twittering on! To view any photograph more closely, just click on it and a larger image will pop up.
I hope you enjoy seeing Marie Antoinette's carriage, which houses a lace storage album. Since it's a little hard to see what's actually happening with the operation of the carriage and it's album, here's a short video that will show you ...
If you'd like a closer look at parts of the carriage and lace storage album, here are some photos. You can click on each one to get a much larger image.

The crown on top of the carriage, the wheels, and the birdcage on the porch are all items from my crafting stash.
The other item I wanted to share with you is a much smaller - and much less time consuming project! It's an altered Altoid tin which has been transformed into a Magic Potion shop - right in time for Hallowe'en.
If you don't have an Altoid tin you can pick one up from Alpha Stamps here. I actually prefer using the tins from Alpha Stamps because they don't have the raised lettering embossed on them found on Altoid Tins.
All of the miniature bottles and flasks are from Alpha Stamps also. There is a huge variety here and here. All of the bottles I used, I filled with glitter and micro beads - and the bead flasks are small beads with miniature beads used as lids and/or stoppers. The other items are from my stash of crafting treasures!
The flowers that I used on the sides are available here. However, while you're there, check out the amazing array of paper flowers and fabric flowers Alpha Stamps keeps in stock.
