So Beautifully Wrapped...!


Have you ever received a gift that was just way toooo beautifully wrapped to even open and spoil it all?  That was how I felt about this gorgeous gift.


Oh, it was a treat to the eyes, friends-- and I just had to snap a few pictures real quick to show you the handiwork put into this piece of eye candy!


On top was a sweet little repro-vintage card of a Santa, smokin' his pipe comin' on down the old chimney.  (Now, who here likes the smell of a good tobacco smoked from a pipe?  Raise your hand!  For me it brings back memories of Grandpa and an uncle...and their tobacco smelled sweet!)

Tucked into that bag of Santa's is this sweet little Santa hanky!  My word, how cute is THAT?!

The scenes on the wrapping were so sweet, so vintage, and all the glitter in just the right places to make it all look magical and oh, so retro and vintage, a treat for the eyes that was just as happy as could be!

Is this not a beautiful piece of work?  To top it all off, she had wrapped it in true vintage ribbon, bought from a thrift store!  

I am telling you, I wanted to leave it all wrapped and just look at it for a while!  

The contents were just as yummy!

Found your blog while blog hopping. I do love it when someone takes the time to wrap a present in a special way. Your farmhouse looks like my aunt's, which I remember fondly. Especially the porch.

I really love your blog! :) I am so thankful to read and get tips from someone who truly sees life beautifully. I'm an upstate NYer, so your farmhouse looks like it could be in my back yard. I just love it!

I just love all those little house books and you're right, these "picture books" are a great way to introduce an appreciation for reading to little ones. I'd like to find my old set of "Little House on the Prairie" books right now and read some. I always loved the chapters which described their Christmases!
