Have you ever wrapped a gift in fabric? I did when I participated in a swap with Alice of Romantic Thoughts ~ I knew that she would love the toile fabric as she loves all things French! I did the best that I could with wrapping it ~ and I finished it off with a silk peony I believe ~
Just look at these beautiful packages from my clippings. And then accented with a vintage pin? I just love these!! I scanned in the directions for the square package. If you click to enlarge maybe you can read them.....
The other photo is so neat, I just love bottles. The older the better! Don't you think these below are beautiful with a sheer fabric wrap??
One last idea. I don't have stairs where we live now but just look at this!! You don't have to use garland all the way down the stairs for Christmas. Long pieces of narrow fabric would be beautiful gathered every so often with a gorgeous bunch of flowers here and there. And do you know the fabric that I'm thinking of??? :) Yes, you guessed it, drop cloth canvas, washed with fabric softener, dried in the dryer then ripped into long panels. Gather with floral wire and using the same wire, fasten on your bouquets of flowers. I'm thinking this would be beautiful all year long, just change the flowers!!
Thank you all so very much for your sweet comments about Brent, Emily and their safe arrival. We're packed in here....but it's really good.....my motto is "just be nice" and all will go smoothly :) Funny how your babies are always your babies ~ forever.
It's been cold and rainy here in Georgia for the past few days but were all snugged in. And as I lay my head on my pillow tonight, I'll be dreaming......of a little angel named Clara ~
Wishing you a great Friday my sweet friends,
