Brown Paper Packages

...tied up with string! Who does not love a package in the mail? I know i do and this one was only made better by how pretty it was. I did not want to open it even though i knew what was inside was even more lovely than the envelope.

I seem to be gravitating to some pretty amazing art on etsy lately. I can not help myself. There are so many that i want but i know i can not have them all....so i narrowed it down to these and another that is on the way. I found these prints through a blog called hide & seek, and her etsy shop, of the same name, is awesome. All the prints are amazing, but these really caught my eye. Click on these to see them bigger, the details are worth it.
The first one is called "Dad, this is the Friend I told you about..." and the second is called "Hide and Seek". I love the little squirrell and the owl hiding in the tree. I am excited to get them up on my wall...probably in my living room where i can enjoy them, or upstairs where i can enjoy them too....i guess i am undecided. They came unframed but i had some frames ready and waiting when they got here.

and making the package all that much sweeter she included some really cute stickers and a bookmark form her store. Chris says it is always about the extras!!! so true...because they are so unexpected and fun. Go check the store out! Please take a minute also to check out Craft Hope on etsy, they are listing donated items and all the proceeds go directly to Doctors without Borders to support the efforts in Haiti. You can donate a small or large amount based on your purchase and then have something pretty and know you helped a little too!

That "hide and seek" one is adorable ! And I can just 'feel' the puzzlement over finding the tree trunk down in the way !

What fun a little retail therapy can be this time of year !
