I love beautiful ribbon and well considered wrapping and tags. This year I found the most beautiful tags at Blossom & Twig on Etsy.
This pretty red bird,
and this fellow with his crown.
Oh! And these three:
|God Bless Us|
I purchased a few for next year and look forward to using them. When they arrived in the crafted envelope I was excited and even more excited to find such gracious packaging inside -- I felt like I'd received a gift rather than receiving a purchase.
So before the Lovely Season of Christmas, it's joy, it's busyness and the brilliant Spirit we celebrate is behind us, I say go and gather for next year.
Me? I shall do as Charles Dickens and "honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."
