Artful Packaging

I'm hankering to make a little art project inspired by this gorgeous MOR packaging -- maybe a collage using different colored sheets of wood veener...

In fact, I'm a bit obsessed with all their packaging. As soon as we finally run out of hand soap (I bought 15 bottles at once on sale last year...don't ask), I might splurge on this lotion just for the reusable bamboo bottle... I can later fill it with some Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap (which I also buy in bulk -- it's possible that I have a soap obsession too...) and plop it next to the sink.

I seriously get an adrenaline rush from pretty packaging. Something not right there, I'm sure. But that first photo is INCREDIBLE!

i love pretty packaging--especially since it means i won't have to spend 15 minutes running bottles under soapy water to remove ugly labels--oh dear.

Hello! I have been following you for a few months but I have never said anything before- sorry to be such a creeper! In any case, congrats to you on finishing the spending hiatus and I think your bike purchase is awesome. I loooove riding my bicycle, and I can't wait to get home to the US where there are no crazy hills, and go out on long rides in the countryside.
I also LOVE that bike basket your daughter has in the picture. I tried to find the name of it in the comments but I couldn't (though everyone says they love it!). Could you please mention the name of it? Thank you!

You know, I have all sorts of fancy triple-milled European soaps in my linen closet, but I can't give up my Dr. Bronner's! Isn't it the best soap in the world. I Love the eucalyptus too. Nice dispenser, by the way.

I just love great packaging!! Sometimes it makes it hard to use the product because you want to keep the bottle!!
