Good things in little packages

Thank you for all your kind words and encouragement yesterday. I haven't had a chance to respond to all your comments, but I read and appreciate every single one of them. I am especially honored to get a link shoutout by the amazing Jane of Ill Seen, Ill Said.

This past month, I participated in the spring photo swap co-run by the lovely ladies of the sweet light and lucent imagery. I was paired up with Danielle Lemoyne and it was funny because I thought I recognized her name. Sure enough, we had once interacted over Etsy back in the summer of 2009. Small photo world.

I received Danielle's beautiful package (from France!) and had to share. It was so delicately put together with a gorgeous pink ribbon, paper cutouts of cherry blossoms and a seriously heartstring-tugging sweet note. Along with her lovely cherry blossom print, Danielle was kind enough to include cherry blossom-scented L'Occitane hand cream (love this brand) and a few packets of Japanese green tea "delicately evoking cherry blossom." (Yeah... no theme here, nope.) What a lucky partner I am, eh? :)

Enjoy your weekends!


  1. That is so sweet. I love when people put thought and care into simple details when mailing packages.

    I have always wanted to be part of a photo swap - we did them a lot in college in photo and printmaking classes, but there's just something about getting a package in the mail that feels so... GOOD. How did you hear about/get involved with yours? Sounds like fun.

    Also, I am pretty sure I tweeted at you about your new site but just to cover my tracks in case I didn't, the site really does look fab. You did a great job.

  2. such a cute idea! i do miss getting real mail...

  3. what a sweet package indeed! small thoughtful things like this can really make my day.

  4. And this is one of the main reasons why I continue to host these swaps! It makes it worth it to see swaps such as this.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Very nice! There's nothing like receiving lovely packages in the mail. Lucky you. :)
