These are a few of my favorite things

Brown paper
packages tied up with string
is how Julie Andrews sang it!
BUT in Northanger Abbey,
Catherine Morland's packages
were tied up with ribbons. She goes
shopping and comes out with boxes
tied up with colored ribbons. Emma
and I were awed by how fun that would
be to have our shopping wrapped up like
presents instead of in bags.

In reading over Masterpiece
Theater's wonderful site, I found this
about Felicity Jones who played Catherine:

. Jones will next appear in Brideshead Revisited alongside Emma Thompson.

'Brown paper packages tied up with string'
When I was a girl, there was a bakery in town run by two older people, and each week my mother would get an assortment of doughnuts and bring them home in a paper box tied with string. I have yet to taste a doughnut as delicious. Do you suppose the packaging made them taste even better? :<)
