The Japanese know a thing or two about how to wrap a beautiful package. About 10 years ago I visited Tokyo and was mesmerized by the meticulous and gorgeous packaging that I saw everywhere. Japan cast a lovely spell on me during that brief visit and I have been longing to return since. This is a picture of some vintage rhinestones wrapped in delicate creamy tissue and sealed with a blue band labeled: "Made in Occupied Japan". The elegant simplicity inspires me.
