Hi !
Thanks for adding the pictures. My favourites are the little frog and the starry night. I have the starry powder box and it's beautiful.
But poor little elephant has lost his eye ? ph34r.gif sad.gif ohmy.gif
Did you replaced the eye or is it just a camera flash Ann ?

Greetings !
Michaela

I put him in the photo as he doesn't get much attention with the missing eye. We have his brother with his eye there. laugh.gif laugh.gif

You have to be on the look out for the right eye to the right tassel. There are 3 different ones .
Blue eye with blue tassel,green eye with green tassel and red eye with green tassel.

I have only seen the powder with the blue eye & blue tassel. My knowledge on powder compacts is very limited .

HUH? I didn't know that the perfume was recalled? I have seen it for sale in a few places.
Why was it recalled?

I donĄt mean to be impertinent but I do miss a picture of my favourite combination: the enamel Frog solid with matching powder compact. My favourite since it is the only match I have biggrin.gif (its supposed to be a laughing smilie here don't know if I got it right). Another favourite of mine is the frog on the leaf, I have the solid and hope to get the powder compact to complete my little frog pound.

The octopus was never officially recalled. Many collectors assumed it was defective because they thought there was a crystal missing, when in fact it was the spot at the back where the hinge went through. Because of that, many returned theirs. I did not...it's a perfect Octopus with all the right crystals in all the right places! biggrin.gif

Not to worry...if you have an Octopus, am sure it's mint. smile.gif I have mine in a huge Brandy Snifter with the Mermaid, Snail and some fishies...perfect. Also some colored stones on the "floor" of the ocean.

Hello everyone,

it took a lilltte while but now a rough draft of the matching solids and powders is available.
Any suggestions of changements of layout, adding other solids/powders which are similar (f.e. the octopus) or other intersting inputs are wellcome.

Matching Solids and Powders

Enjoy yourself,

Brigitte
