I’m finally wrapping up my Christmas preparations!
It seems to take me as long as I have to prepare~
If Thanksgiving falls a week early,
it takes the extra week :)
I had several Pottery Barn shopping bags this holiday season~ several were double bagged for the weight of my gifts & purchases.
Too pretty to toss in the recycling bin,
I thought I’d recycle as gift wrap~
Since birds of a feather flock together,
they took flight to find a home
on and under my ladder tree,
among the other birds in my Potting Shed.
I added some fresh greenery, burlap & tartan ribbon, pine cones, acorns, feathers, eggs, lichen and bits of moss to decorate the packages with hot glue. If you look closely you can see the glue strings , you can make them disappear with a burst of heat from a hair dryer. :)
This plaid box from Pottery Barn held a diffuser and holiday candle I received as a gift, now dressed for Christmas, recycled but not regifted :)
Just ready to be unwrapped for the second time
with a different gift inside :)
A few gifts are wrapped in brown kraft paper with good wishes and greetings offered with reproduction vintage post cards~
Lenox Winter Song arrived with colder weather and more seasonal December temperatures for winter~
And this adorable Chickadee ornament
flew south from Philly to nest with me~
He migrated safely in a Christmas plaid tin
which made me Happier than a Pig in Mud :)
Thank you Lynn, I promise to
feed and give him a good home!
Hope you’re wrapping up all your Christmas preparations!
