Hi I have a confession I actually think wrapping paper is Wrong (waste of trees, money and dye) yes I know thats a bit weird. So I always do the brown paper wrapping and I think it works very well as a contrast to what's inside.!! xoxo

~Kate~ said...

I'm feeling the same way....I'm so excited for Christmas!!

paperhill said...

"When the dog bites...when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad" - love the twine - looks like bakers' twine? Hope your weekend is wonderful Koralee.

Maria said...

YOU are so ADORABLE :D

So very true~ Hope you have a sweet & Christmasy weekend ~ Maria

Hello Koralee!!

I came from Brenda's. You have a lovely blog!! The red string is too cute and will look so happy with brown paper!! Last year I stamped brown parcel bags with festive stamps and loved the effect. Now I need some of that string!!

Your photos are are really cute and I like the subject matter (!!) Very whimsical, makes me smile!

Have a wonderful evening! :-)

The red and white striped string is so pretty and unique, and I've not seen it for sale.
I also admire the sock monkey slippers in your photo next to this post.

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Koralee, another lovely charming post that is sure to put smiles on everyone's face who stops by your blog!! I adore the string, it is one of my favorites to use, so old fashioned and cheery. I would just love love love to stop by your home for a cup of hot chocolate during the holidays, It must be so warm and magical.

Oh Koralee,
This is so exciting. AND I must say, only a few people, YOU on the top of the list, can show only ONE photo, and get a large response. My sister-in-law Nancy at Fete et Fleur knows how to draw the masses with only one photo as well. Your colors and style and few words speak volumes. How wonderful to have met you...Anita

Jacqueline said...

Hello Lovely,
how peculiar, I have a post all lined up called "These are a few of my favourite things...." along the very same lines. Great minds and all that! I am also using the same twine to wrap up presents this very evening!

Monica said...

Your post is definitely putting me in the Christmas spirit! I love the twine -- where did you get it? And I agree with the others, the monkey slippers are too cute.
