If I get more of these sort I will have to make people guess what it is! I was sent this beauty from a fellow museum professional.

We all know that there is a time and a place for packing tape, I love the stuff! But this is a little extreme.

If you haven't guessed yet what lovely item is being choked in this frightening unopenable package, it is.

A pasta machine!!

On the plus side, it sure is not getting dusty...


  1. I barely have time to make courtesy tabs with the tape let alone attempt modern art with it.

  2. At least its brown packing tape so you "can" see it.

  3. I didn't know they made archival brown packing tape . . . oh, wait . . .

  4. Not to mention what the tape residue does to your tools, the scissors and knives you have to wield frighteningly close to precious artifacts to free them from the hold of tape. You have to use really nasty solvents to clean your tools. After you've freed the stuff. AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!!
