Me vs. My Page-A-Day Mensa Puzzle Calendar - 01/31/07

QUESTION: "A popular proverb has been put into fancy language below. Can you put it back into its original form?

"The most highly prized objects are often seen upon arrival as being contained in minuscule arrangements."

MY ANSWER: "All that glitters is not gold."

ACTUAL ANSWER: "Good things come in small packages."

CONSENSUS: That "minuscule arrangements" part gave me great doubt about my answer, but my idiot train got so much momentum from "upon arrival" (thinking that it meant the person's arrival to the object, not vice versa) that it just couldn't be stopped. You're lucky I have no control over my brain, calendar.
