weekend find

This past weekend aside from scoring a 32-inch flat screen TV for $200 from Walmart (thank you cousin Rose for braving the cold and the crowd) I also thrifted a bunch of really nice vintage Christmas gift wrapping paper, a whole box of vintage ribbons and a pot of bushy silk poinsettia from Goodwill.

I love the slightly brownish and matte color of these old wrapping papers.

The possibilities of this fake plant is endless, but mostly will be plucked and used to accent some gift boxes and maybe a Christmas wreath.

Lots of pastels but will do for the colored gift wraps.

Some gifts were wrapped last night using the above materials.  Call me crazy but one of my favorite things about the holiday is not so much about opening the gifts but wrapping them!

Happy 1st of December everyone!

  1. Those wrapping papers are gorgeous! I love to wrap, too, but I usually don't start until all of the gifts are purchased. Then I sit down for a few days and just wrap, wrap, wrap. Good for you getting going so early :)
