my *TWO* utterly fab gauche alchemy color kits came (with many thanks again to the gals at the creative type!) and even the packaging on these was cool enough to need its own photo:
yeah--they're wrapped in a vintage pattern and tied with luscious lace! but trust me, they're equally cool unwrapped...see?!
oh and not to be outdone, lovely husband jeff received a very nice wristwatch as a gift from his employer, in celebration of his tenth year with the company. i don't have a pic because he's actually both at work and WEARING the watch at the moment, so you'll just have to take my word that it is--much like LHJ himself--stylish as well as practical! but here's the thing i wanted to show you; being a not inexpensive gift, the box in which the watch arrived was carefully sealed with special "tamper-proof tape". impressive that the shippers are so painstaking, eh?
it worked perfectly, too--i am happy to report that there was absolutely NO TAMPERING with the hinge of the box*!!! :)
*there was no tampering with any part of the box, for that matter; i just found this somewhat hilarious, while at the same time really hoping that this company is only responsible for securing watches and not nuclear power plants or airports or anything, lol! :)
