Pour Vous

I know I can be over the top with gift wrapping. So here is a lovely petite gift wrapped quite simply just Pour Vous. Just to prove I can do it. Isn't this solid coral gift wrap just divine? And that narrow Papaya ribbon? Pretty gift tags can make the gift and these are pretty, pretty with a bit of glitter.

My friend was here the other day using the Wrap Room to wrap some personal gifts and used these Sweet Treats tags on orange. I hadn't gotten around to playing with these new gift tags yet, but her clever instincts were right, the pastel confections show well on a stronger colour. See that tan gift wrap in the background? Remember last weeks post on the Burberry re-gift? I found the perfect Burberry-toned gift wrap and will spend the weekend getting my version ready for the website. I can tell it's going to be a favorite.

Another handy little gift in the Small Gifts collection. This Gift Organizer is actually a practical gift. I wish I had kept track over the years, I do tend to forget my gifting these days so I'm going to grab one for myself.
~ Have a lovely weekend ~

  14. I found your site through the latest issue of Victoria magazine. Oh wow!!! It's gorgeous!

    I love giving gifts --- one of my absolute favourite expressions of loving --- and so I'm looking forward to finding new inspiration as I browse through your beautiful site.

    I just finished reading Veronique Vienne's book "The Art of Being a Woman" and she shares some wonderful ideas about gift giving. One of my favourite quotes from the book is 'Not all your pretty belongings belong to you. Some of them are destined to be gift wrapped.'

    So it's interesting that now I find you..... gotta love it, eh?

  15. PS. I've highlighted your blog on my site this morning....

  16. something about that color and the satin that make me swoon!

  17. I was so excited to discover your blog. I love giftwrapping more then purchasing the gift...I actually passed up purchasing a gift from a store because they did not have an appropriate box. Boxes are a big deal to me too.

  18. I love your blog, it is so peauceful.
    So sorry about the loss of your adorable dog, you brougt tears to my eyes

  19. Simple, yet lovely. Will you be offering the gift tags (like the one used in the picture) on your website?


Your comments are such a lovely addition to my day. Thank you.
