A Wreath and Twinkly Lights are 13 oz or less

12.08.11

We know someone who is going to need a few festive decorations in her college apartment while she is slogging through finals, so we decided we’d better drop a some the mail.

It just so happens that a set of 100 holiday lights weighs in at just under 13 ounces. Lucky for us. So we were able to stick on a few cheery stamps and drop that string of lights in a big blue mailbox.
We also picked up a $3 straw wreath-form, which is perfect for wrapping in tinsel. That weighed about the same, so in the mailbox it went. It just fit.
Followed by a string of tinsel, of course.
Photo credits for all post office shots go to my lovely mother. Who came visiting and offered to come along to the post office and snap pictures. We ended up having a great conversation with a pair of English women, who got in their car, then got back out to find out what we could possibly be doing. Which it turns out is a pretty good way to start a conversation.

Happy holidays, everyone.
