I am kind of obsessed with pretty packages. My dream home has a little office to be used solely for wrapping presents. There are so many great wrapping papers and beautiful ribbon, but sometimes a girl needs to be frugal. As I look at the calendar and all the upcoming birthday parties, I think we are going to be getting crafty with the wrapping around here.
I guess it’s the southerner in me that is a sucker for a thank you card. Although if the only mail you got were random solicitations addressed to Mr. Egan Gauntt, you might develop an obsession with handwritten mail too. I love to send an email and i luv 2 text, but there is nothing more charming and heart warming than getting a thoughtful note in the mail.
My favorite places to spend a half hour are Urbanic on Abbot Kinney here in Venice or Sugar Paper at the Brentwood Country Mart.

I shouldn’t say Easter basket when I really mean, Easter bucket. I am forever trying to figure out how to store those cumbersome baskets for the 364 days in between Easter. This year I’m going practical and reusable.
