I am a sucker for packaging and I have recently purchased two items that arrived with all the attention to detail that I enjoy.
My first little parcel is from Bassom Bear who I have recently discovered when trying to work out how to use Artfire.
Pretty little personalised box, nice....Shredded tissue, nice....
And inside a gorgeous tiny, fully jointed teddy bear for my Toy Shop. He is just beautiful and so well made. He reminds me of the bears that used to line the walls of Gamages Toy Emporium ( I am not as old as the writer of this piece, but it has the right feel for the visits I remember in the 1960's).
I love the added touch of his own designer label on his bottom.
He is a real cutie and has settled in amongst all the other bears in the Toy Shop. Lots of empty spaces still to fill though!
Next to arrive were the wonderfully packages mini glitter house kits from true2scale. I ordered the Haunted House, of course
......and a Little Church which will go in the Toy Shop.
Both kits are presented in their own tasteful envelopes which really make you feel you have purchased something special.
This seller also has a marvellous blog which is well worth a long visit for lots of tips and helpful advice.
I can't wait to start these kits. They are a perfect project for me at the moment as I have a feeling I will be working in small time spurts at the moment!
