A Petite Package








This sweet petite package came from Lin at A {tiny} Cottage in the Woods.





I loved the way she wrapped.






Inside this pretty, petite package was a delicate needlepoint bunny.
 I placed the bunny against a silver 5 x 7 frame to show you the proportions.  It's amazing.




Not a detail was overlooked. The pretty paper pattern on the left is the backing of the frame, and Lin even made the frame.
This was a giveaway from Lin's former Etsy shop called Zuzu's Garden.
Do you remember Zuzu's flower in It's a Wonderful Life?  I don't know the origin of her shop's name, but my memory referenced that film classic.

It's amazing what one can do with a petite home.
Lin has a {tiny} cottage in the woods that she and her spouse built.
It's so lovely to visit.  





Since the wrapping was so pretty, I kept it, and I used some of it to decorate this faux doorknob.

Thank you, Lin.

    1. Thank you, Lavender dreamer. It's just amazing to be able to see what so many creative women do to make things sweeter for their friends and family. Lin did write back and say it was related to "It's a Wonderful Life". What a sweet name for a doll. I love that movie. Have a great day. xoxo

  11. Good morning, Su.

    I'm so glad the bunny found such a lovely home, and how very creative of you to use the ribbons and flowers on your doorknob decoration ~ very pretty!

    And you are quite right. My online shop name was inspired by the meaning of Zuzu's petals from "It's A Wonderful Life". :)

    Wishing you & yours a beautiful day,
    Lin
