Those tapes and the velvet ribbon are so lovely! I've sorted my decorations, but I still need a tree (a fake one, we have cats) :)
Have a wonderful day!

i told my kids we were going to have a really light christmas this year, and they agreed that that was a good idea ... which makes it a lot easier to get my shopping done. just about there - at least for them! feels good too! then let the wrapping begin! (sure love your pile of supplies!) xoxo

I like your Christmas Countdown idea a lot, sweet friend. No shopping done yet, I do have things in mind though. Must admit I do not like shopping at all!! Hooray for internet. Happy hugs for a happy Midweek xx

Oh Koralee, I bet those who get your gifts are so lucky to see how pretty just the packages are! As for shopping, I am trying to get all things handmade or vintage, shopping on Etsy is fun. We got a handblown glass ball for my DIL from glassblowers at the beach. I'm crocheting a blanket for my other DIL in her school colors, bought things from another blogger in her Etsy shop for my sisters. Fun fun!

Most shopping is done, but organized is a huge NO. I am behind on that one. We normally get our tree right after Thanksgiving, but this year is will be a week late. My house is a mess with boxes everywhere. And must get the fruitcake baked very soon. But it is all happy stuff. Enjoy the happy stuff!

Donna said...

what a great collection of wrapping materials! I have not even begun to buy gifts this year!
Maybe next week!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Koralee,

Happy week

Those wrapping supplies are really cute. I really love the blue velvet ribbon. Shopping is going great. Only a few more things to buy, but I haven't put up my tree yet. Good luck with the rest of your shopping.

Oh,what pretty ribbons and trims! Eye candy for sure! I am slowly getting into the spirit, but you have inspired me. xx

i.ikeda said...

My shopping is done! Mostly... I have two kids left and a bunch of adults who asked for gift cards. Boo hoo. I always love to get presents, rather than gift cards, but this is what they want.

I wish I could buy some organization... Have a wonderful week my friend! Xoxo

My heart skips a beat when a bunch of pretty ribbon is unravelling together. I just bought some velvet purple ribbon at Anthropologie. Every time I look at it, I feel like a glass of Welch's Grape Juice. :-)

Libbie said...

I know you...you will magically find all the perfect gifts you need....and then you will wrap them to be fit for royalty...hope we get to see some wrapped! :)

4 weeeeeeeeeeeks! Eeeeeeeeeeks!

Eugenia said...

We are actually ahead of our shopping schedule. It is all about enjoying the season. I don't want any feeling of panic creeping in this year. Just finishing up putting away fall holiday decorations. Ready to visit my Christmas treasures.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh how I love the pink and green hues you pick up on your photos my dear!

I HAD some STORMY NIGHT TEA TODAY, thinking of you, of course! I worked at the school yesterday in the fourth grade, in my old school. It was endearing, but today, I stayed home attempting to get some orders done! AND YES, isn't that little dress in my banner just a darling thing? I too feel fabulous when I am dressed properly. I can GO GO GO!

I hope you found just the right thing today to put on and conquer your world my sweet! LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I've never seen tape so pretty...where do you find it? I started my shopping early and I added a few more things on Cyber Monday. I have a few things that will wait until I get to Florida (easier for my daughter to exchange things if necessary) but, I'm getting there. I even wrapped some things today. I love your colors of course...very festive!

I still have a long way to go with the shopping. Thankfully I now have in hand a "wish list" from each person.
