There it was. A forlorn, brown, paper package sitting in the rain. The postman had kindly sealed it in clear plastic before leaving it on the steps. It couldn't be helped, but my mind's film reel was rolling off Fräulein Maria, clad in white on a stormy night, singing,
"Brown, paper packages tied up with strings,
These are a few of my favorite things."
-- The Sound of Music
|My older sister mailed me this Mask|
after spending 2 weeks in Venice, Florence and Rome.
I was so thankful for the Postman's thoughtfulness
in protecting the package.
How can we possibly resist unexpected packages? It's Magic in every mysterious box. Can't blame Pandora for peeking into hers.
With this surprise, Halloween is now taking a Venetian slant as my costume ideas percolate ... What do you plan to be for Halloween?
Late addition, to this post:
A delightful, little stop animation short for Halloween from film maker, Spike Jonze, and bag designer, Olympia Le Tan. Enjoy!
