pretty little packages

I absolutely love wrapping presents! So much so that there have been times where I have really wished I could somehow make a career out of it! Jeff's brother Kyle is a very interesting guy with a real appreciation for things that are simple and classic. I recently found an envelope full of vintage stamps I had bought at a flea market several years ago and thought it would be cool to make this parcel for Kyle look classic- the way you envision (and wish) things that arrive in the mail would look like. Although the stamps I used didn't actually pay the postage to New Brunswick (most were from Uruguay and Australia and totaled no more than a few cents) the lady working at the post office was really excited to see the vintage stamps, and I was happy to see the end result- A classic parcel for a wonderful brother-in-law!
