Festive season!

With Christmas almost here, I imagine everyone's very busy and I hope a festive spirit and holiday cheer is beginning to get hold. With all preparations in full swing, the run-up to Christmas is almost as fun and enjoyable as the holidays themselves. The pine cones, twigs and dried flowers I've collected throughout the year have received a coat of gold and silver, the house is decorated, the tree's brought home, the wine cellar stocked and the presents bought. Now it's time to bake, gift wrap and  plan the holiday outfits!

Time to start wrapping!

This season I am wrapping all gifts in glossy white paper, and then adding ornaments, ribbons and greenery for a festive touch. It is very similar to accessorizing a capsule wardrobe piece!

Christmas sales at the end of the month always provide a good opportunity to stock up on gift wrapping materials for the coming years.

Red and white, a Christmas classic

A throwback to 2008 when DS was 'posing' for our Christmas card, wearing my Ex Libris CSGM. This autumn he started university in England, and he'll be home for Christmas in a few days!

This pretty, tassled trimming is a find from Bangkok's Chinatown earlier this year (click here to see the travelogue), you never know where you'll find your wrapping materials!

Wishing you all
a Merry Christmas,
Happy Holidays
and a
Healthy, happy and fabulous New Year 2019!

PS. It seems to be impossible to leave comments at the moment. I am truly sorry for the frustration this causes, and I miss the pond-side chat with all you swans. I hope Blogger will fix this soon, but if any of you have an idea how to bypass the problem, please let me know.
