Pretty Packages

It's funny... a friend and I were just talking about the word "parcel" the other day and how it reminds us of brown kraft paper wrapped with cotton twine (ideally the red and white). THEN, in an email I received today from Etsy, there was a whole article about packages! I love packaging... one of my favorite parts of giving gifts is the detail that you can put into presenting it. I've also been thinking a lot about how I want my packaging... I think that E and I have figured it out for the clothing line we've been working on (more on that later), but I haven't nailed down how I will ship my Fabulous Fete packages. I'm loving these that I found on Flickr...

Wouldn't you love to receive one of these pretty little parcels in your mailbox?
I know I would...
