My goodness Trish Burr you are so amazing! The packaging was meticulous - The detail in putting these together - what can I say? Right down to the little thank you note/sticker. The quality of the fabric and the printing is amazing! I order online all the time but have never been treated to such loving care! If there were 10 stars I would give it a 10. Thank you!
