St Tropez...................gone gift wrapping

This makes me want to head where the sun shines bright and hot.....somewhere where you wear scarf turbans and cool cotton caftans. St. Tropez perhaps. When I received my Jo Malone refill order a few weeks ago there was a nice supply of gray and white stripe tissue that made me want to explore a more summery gift wrap presentation. Pinstripes always make me think of summer Once the tissue wrinkles were ironed out so easy I got going and by chance came across this fashionable Leggiadro illustration from a 2009 copy of Town & Country. Bonus.

If I have said it once, I have said it at least a hundred times..............there is gift wrapping ideas in those old magazines. I am always on the hunt for fun and fashionable images that will give gifts a more unique and personable appearance. I will match this one up to a friend who loves the sun and wearing designer shades. 

My gift wrapping dose of Vitamin D. 

Thank you to readers who commented this past week and a sunny and
warm welcome to new followers.

  1. Ha! I know somebody who likes the sun and wearing designer sunglasses... ;-) That wrapping is fun and elegant which is a great combination. Have a lovely weekend xo

  2. ah...St Tropez..the sun, the happy shades of blue..that's a fab gift wrapping idea, Sande!

    ps : i must try to iron tissue paper !

  3. This is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Love you...

  4. Sande-
    This does look like summer. Where I live I am still waiting on snow by chance. I must admit that I have a tiny bit of spring fever. Planting takes over soon.

  5. What a chic presentation, Sande!
    Yes, I'm ready for some Vitamin D soaking myself, and why not on the beach in the South of France???

    By the way, this is the first post that I've been able to comment on on your blog (over the past month) without receiving a blank screen upon clicking on the comment button. I tried on two different occasions to post a comment on your last post but kept receiving a blank screen...
    I've been told by several bloggers that they have problems posting comments on my blog from time to time...The "woes" of technology!

    Hopefully everything will work properly now.

    I'm happy to see that all is cheerfully bright in your world!


  6. Sande what a perfect idea for summer-like fun!
