PRETTY PACKAGING: Country By Mail (sweden)


I'd thought I'd continue my 'Pretty Packing' post by introducing you to some of the 'webshops' I've become addicted to and the gorgeous packing that graces their puchases!! The first being; ....


















I have spent many a pleasurable hour, perusing the wonderful bits and pieces this store showcases. So many delightful things to bring a 'Scandinavian' element into your home! And the stock changes constantly ... so you can go back again and again ... and always find something new to tempt you! Of course.. the self imposed 'look and don't touch' got the better of me and I found myself asking the pivotal question ...




'do you post to Australia?'




Well the answer was YES and as you can imagine, I wasted no time in purchasing a number of beauties to brighten my home. The service was friendly and helpful, and delivery was surprisingly prompt, considering my little bundles of joy traversed the world to find me!




Upon their arrival, I had the extra pleasure of finding some gorgeous packing and Vintage newspapers! Needless to say ... I had to keep the packaging and here are some photos I took to show you;






.. pretty packaging ..















.. lovely homewares ..



And these are some of my latest purchases (read 'treasures' or 'new family members'..)










These little darlings are a few more temptations that I have not succumbed to ... as yet ... (maybe soon)
















And homewares are not all they offer!

There is also image after image of their inspirational 'Butiken' where you will find larger items for sale such as lovingly painted furniture.

Here is a sample to tempt your tastebuds ...



















I hope you will enjoy visiting 'Country By Mail' as much as I do.


Thank you to Maria & Gunilla for always making my shopping experience pleasurable.

Love your artful acquisitions. We may need to fight for the charming teacups though.

Wow Julie,so many beautiful things to choose from! I having a dining set that looks very similar to the second to last photo. The only problem is mine is oak not painted but I've thought about painting it for quite a while now and seeing this makes me want to get busy on it! I love how that looks! Thank you for the needed inspiration!
