My little bunny paperweight

I have a real affinity for good packaging.  To buy something - especially handmade - and to receive it well-packaged is like getting a birthday present when it's not your birthday.  I appreciate the time and thoughtfulness behind the effort. 

Being the nerdy office supply person that I am, it should be no surprise that I recently purchased a lovely paperweight just because.  When my little item from Paper Flowers Boutique arrived in the mail, I fell in love with how it was so carefully packaged with vintage ribbon and wallpaper, and enclosed in a sweet little organza bag.  Again: happy un-birthday to me. 

And check out these serious details:

It's the little things that make us happy, isn't it?

You really are too sweet!

I also think that packages that arrive in the mail should be special and whether they are a gift to yourself or someone else, they should look like it! That's why I package all my items as such.

Thanks again!
