Wrapping it up....

Braved the mall yesterday to pick up a few more items I was afraid might sell out....thank goodness all but one thing was found. Had to run into Antrhopologie ( of course) & found they were giving out super cute package toppers. Last year they gave yarn balls with felt snowflakes...precious.

This year ~ white yarn fluff pictured below.

Tried to add some color to this years wrapping. Never found exactly what I wanted as far as wrapping paper but love the red poka dot with Martha Stewarts yummy tiffany blue ribbon. The rest I used all whites with gold & silver. Last year I wrapped everything in white paper....again , a big snoozer for the kids!








Found these little boxwood wreaths on sale at Ballards & I may have to keep these up past the 25th ! Put a couple in the kitchen...



& a couple in our master bedroom.
Would love one of Cody Fosters glittered homes ( find those cuties at room service home or christmas traditions) but they are $$$.

Found this little cutie at marshalls for $6--fit the budget for sure!
Know you're tired of the mantel & the white frames...& yes its been redone a few times.

Ended up with some fresh garland & I'm happy now.

Found one of charlotte lyons ornaments the other day...her line is so cute.
Decided to frame it in my favorite old ceiling tile frame in front of sheet music I used when I was little.

This is the last weekend for Madison's performances. Each show this weekend will have a live orchestra & is sold out! Precious memories for sure.

Have a blessed day!

So pretty. Love the red + blue combos in your packaging. I suddenly feel a strong need to go to Anthropologie.

Just discovered your blog & look forward to having more time to check it out soon. :)

What pretty little holiday details all throughout your home.

I really love all the beautiful little toppers on your Christmas presents. Makes the gift even more special when it comes wrapped up so wonderfully.

Happy holidays!

You are making me salivate over here! I LOVE taking the time to wrap everything beautifully and think out my wrapping scheme. Not gonna happen this year. I am knee deep in 18 month old hood life. I just need to take a deep breath and love where I am at in life. I will have time again to pay attention to the details someday ...I will... (I am trying to convince myself;) I am lucky if I even get things wrapped this year.

Also LOVE the little wreaths. I may try to order some if they are not sold out yet. And...LOVE the cottage from Marshalls. Good find! Okay I have rambled enough here.

I love the wreaths! I also love your beautiful packages. Unfortunately, I am in Kim's boat -- I have a 16 month old and my packages aren't very pretty this year!
