Whimsically wrapped parcels from persons unknown have a special sort of magic I think.  All brown paper, black ink, washii tape and twine, with layers like pass-the-parcel and no clue as to what they could possibly contain until the last is peeled open. Beautiful treasure inside: embroidered vintage trim with deeply autumnal colours and old green buttons on a flowery playing card, a little package of joy that warmed my heart on a particularly rainy, blustery (gorgeous) day.

    May I ask how they came across your address? That's such a lovely thing to receive! I'm the sort of person who would actually gladly just have the packaging and not worry about what was inside! ;)

  27. I miss letter writing. All my friends have moved closer now, and while it's lovely seeing them in person I quite enjoyed sending and receiving letters and mysteriously wrapped gifts.
