Secret small things

Hidden secrets. Tiny moments. Mysteries, morsels and messages: imagine holding these in your hand. Crafty decorator Jeska of Lobster and Swan has loved old matchboxes, and "secret small things" hidden inside, for years. She even has one with a typewritten message inside it from her great grandfather. How incredibly precious! Earlier this year Jeska started a project called #matchboxaday, creating tiny worlds inside vintage wooden matchboxes every day for a whole month. She then sold the matchboxes on her Etsy shop to help raise money for a charity run that her husband was doing.

The very first matchbox (pictured above) was Airmail! If only I had known, I DEFINITELY would have made this tiny world my own to celebrate my book. Then again, I am pretty much coveting ALL of these miniature marvels.
