It’s easy to forget that everything we do says something about us. I ordered a bunch of different scarves on Etsy in the past couple weeks and today opened a package to find this one. The photo doesn’t do justice to the wrapping — a clear plastic envelope, pink tissue paper, a pretty brown ribbon, a card in a lovely metallic envelope (with my name and the sender’s) and a sticker closing the whole thing up. Love it!
But wait! There’s more! I open the tissue paper and there’s a lovely and unusual woven envelope (or some kind of cord or grass):
Finally, the scarf itself.
The note from the artist says “I hope you enjoy this scarf as much as I enjoyed painting it for you.” Charming and wonderful!
To see the scarf (and other wonderful Etsy finds), please come to the Holiday Accessories Boutique show on December 2, in Northwest DC. Please contact me for details!
