Brown Paper Packages.

On Friday I had the pleasant surprise of finding an unexpected package on my doorstep. Happy mail! It seems like ages since this last happened and I have to say, it was lovely. The package was about the most kind "thank you" I've received from my friend Jane. All for taking Jane's darling family boating while they happened to be in town one evening this summer.

As soon as I saw the package came from Jane I knew I was in for a treat. Jane, like many of you, shares my affinity for a well packaged gift and as I opened the box, I was completely smitten. There were brown paper packages, mini wooden scrabble tiles, bows and my personal favorite, a wooden box for the babe.

Each of the children were so excited to open their gift. I appreciated how Jane not only took the time to find a little something she knew they would enjoy, but wrapped their treat up in such a way that made it feel extra special. Isn't happy mail the best?!

p.s. I've done a bit of searching because I was sure you'd ask. You can find some mini wooden scrabble stickers here, some great bags for packaging here, wooden boxes with sliding lids here, and those super cute + incredibly soft outfits for the babe? You can find something similar here.
