Wrap It Up

Are you scurrying around this weekend shopping and trying to Wrap It Up before the big day arrives?

I had a conversation with a friend the other day about getting all of the gift wrapping done early.  We agreed that wrapping a present at the last minute only to have it ripped open before the tape has even adhered does not give us the warm fuzzy feeling that should go along with gift giving.

Over here On Pinehurst Place the presentation is equally as important as the gift itself.  I love the wrapping paper, the ribbons, the embellishments that make each gift special.  Oh, and I also love to have everything wrapped up long before the last minute because it does give me that warm fuzzy feeling when I am sitting and gazing at the tree while enjoying my coffee in the quiet early morning.

This year’s wrappings include several items which will evoke some deja vu perhaps!

If you are new here you might as well know now how I fall for faux bois…
