I came home from my group meeting yesterday afternoon to find a small package on the mat, and in it was one of Gina Ferrari's exquisite tiny matchbox books. I had seen so many different ones on her blog (Fan My Flame) and couldn't resist buying one for myself. I asked for one based on Pisces as my birthday is in March and here it is. I love it and am in danger of wearing it out as I keep taking it out of it's box and looking at it.
Above is the outside of the box with one of our small matchboxes beside it so you can see just how small they are. Gina has fixed a tiny fishy tile to the front and the matchbox sleeve is covered with beautiful patterned paper.
The box part is covered with another paper featuring a fish design and I have two books for the price of one. The main book is beautifully worked with foil fish in the symbolic Pisces design swimming against eachother. With it is a tiny accordian style book explaining the characteristics of Pisceans.
This also has Japanese papers on its tiny covers and wrapper.
The light today is dreadful for taking photos but they have turned out better than I imagined. It is so dark and dismal and has been raining all morning. There is nothing like a lovely summer day, and today is definitely nothing like a lovely summer day!
