The box came from Donna Parker and contained 3 individually wrapped books for our swap and a mail art envelope filled with goodies for me! Everything was wrapped inside the box in beautiful, brightly colored tissue paper. Donna very smartly secured her individually wrapped books with a hat pin, so I could easily unwrap and photograph the contents. Thanks so much for this thoughtfulness Donna, it really helped me! Directly below is the first book I unwrapped.
