An online order arrived unexpectedly ahead of schedule Christmas Eve. This is the box it came in.
...and here is what came in it (the ruler, not the dog). Remarkably, this 15 inch rotary ruler protected by a little wadded up brown paper was totally undamaged! Maddie, of course, had to check it out. It was specifically called for in a project I will be doing, and was not a size I could find locally. I thought it would be useful, so decided to get it.
I included it in an order so I could get the free shipping and thought it would be sent with everything else; but it came early.
