L'avènement de Noël: № 2

Neutrals, berry tones, + accessories combine for gift wrapping inspiration.

First off, thank you for the lovely responses to yesterday's post—the first in this new Christmas series. Your comments and emails were such a treat to read. I am happy to share that today, I am a guest on Bonnie Tsang's beautiful and inspiring blog, sharing a gift that I would like to give and a gift to receive—be sure to visit and read through a few past posts in her series, {Christmas Gifts} To Give & To Receive.

And for today's inspiration—gift wrapping ideas: weathered, vintage tins lined with scalloped, crisp tissue, to hold baking / velvety, flower–topped parcels of paper and fabric, with ribbon (and a great video) / paper bags with oats and xoxo / little cotton bags for treasures, with feathers and other ornaments on parcels / + also, A Gift Wrapped Life / + lastly, for some additional inspiration, please visit my second–cousin's great blog (in Germany)—I just discovered it yesterday!
