I used to think the best things came in small packages and that eventually they may add up to something like a collection of shiny and sparkly bijoux with stories behind each little piece. While I’m fortunate enough to have enjoyed this in my life and cherish the whispering tales of the exquisitely wrought trinkets that speckled my lifespan, my little bear fortuitously prefers the package to the actual thoughtful gift particularly when that package is a box that can be used as a conduit for fun.
To an inquisitive little bear, a box makes for a rough and ready wagon that can haul items she is currently into or an invaluable means of transport (her being the object of transport) that ensues lots of merriment. We’ve exhausted a few boxes, yowling, yawping and roaring with laughter over such mundane silliness.
Who knows how long before she negates her deep affection and love affair with packaging and what will replace it…but this latest package has left me a little breathless as well. I usually tote my own shopping bags, however the items were too big so I enthusiastically accepted this one and knew immediately that I wanted to reuse it (transform it really) into a “print” on my bare and boring neutral walls in my nest.Since it imbues beach vibes, I made big plans for it in the bedroom. It’s one of the last things I fix my eyes on before my lids grow heavy and take me to dreamland.One of the purchases is photographed in this post, however, it is not where it will remain. It will join the other item to make for a dynamic styling team…stay tuned for what articles were in the package and where in my nest they landed. Don’t forget to do Mother Nature a favor by reusing packages or re-purposing them in a creative way in your nest.
