Each year I like to come up with a different way of decorating the Christmas gifts. This year I had some nifty ideas that I found via Pinterest with a twist of my own. I bought brown mailing paper, then I found old vintage Christmas photos of children online, downloaded them, and printed them to use on top of a layer of burlap and ribbon, added a gift tag with Baker's twine with the cute red and white stripe for color. The cute snowflake craft paper I bought at Staples that is a Martha Stewart holiday wrapping paper they are selling this year.
Little boxed gifts on the piano lid with one of my favorite Santa Claus's
Since my daughter got married in October, I had wallet photos made to put in small frames, add a little red ribbon so they can hang as a tree ornament.
My girlfriend Lori and I saw at Crate and Barrel Christmas tree
candles that they had put in Hurricane bowls. We liked that too so we
each bought one of the candles to see what we could come up with. The white "snow" is Rock Salt. I added a little Santa
Claus that I bought at World Market to create a "Winter scene".
Lastly, Tucker perched on the chair near our Christmas tree. Be a good boy Tucker and no eating the packages!

October 13, 2012..... I've been gone for so long. Truly I've been overwhelmed with many emotions of joy (I never knew one could have so many moments of joy and how they would each be so special and unique to my heart!).
So here I share just a tip of the joy our family had on our dear daughters wedding day....enjoy.
I'll be back, really I will. Now the holidays have come and a New Year just on the heels of it all. I'm still going through photos from out Wedding week in New Hampshire and may I just say I fell in love with the scenery, his family and all their friends. The Fall colors, the crisp (chilly!) days, even the days we had a bit of rain it was magic! In fact that has been my overused word for our daughter and her dear hubby B. Wedding.
Magic..... magic.... it was.
