packaging

my husband says i'm a sucker for packaging... and ... he's right...

i think the first time i noticed this was on a trip to Los Angeles... (years ago - before children and marriage).   i was with my cousin who lived there for many years and she took me to the Beverly Centre? (I think that's what it was called) ... WOW!  i remember the stores' items were just so well packaged - they just looked BEAUTIFUL and I had to buy something ... mostly for the packaging! 

... and so there started my obsession.

i've also recently discovered this website Oh Hello Friend - DOUBLE WOW... it knocked my socks off ... such adorable ideas and wonderful packaging... 

need to get busy...

enjoy ~

so simple ... yet fabulous


pretty fabric... yes i have this!




... gotta love string ! 



swoon... 



... great way to use vintage ephemera and re-use parcels and old sewing patterns!


 

... and elegant ...
