So beautiful, Lynn! Love every single detail...especially the sweet Frozen Charlotte dolly---one of my favorite things!

I just picked up a gorgeous, perfect cigar box from the turn-of-the-century while junkin' last week...I wanted to alter it, but it's so pretty I don't know if I'll be able to!

Wishing you a beautiful day, my friend!

Your cigar box is gorgeous. I love all the little embellishments you added and the wings on the Charlotte doll is so clever. She looks like a little fairy sitting there to greet the person who opens the box. Beautiful work Lynn!!

I'm so glad you did this post. I have some cigar boxes that I've acquired and you've given me some wonderful ideas. Some of the boxes are very different (not your regular cigar type boxes)so I'm thinking about that. You are just one busy lady!!!! Diane
