This Christmas I have fallen in love with the colour Brown!
An unusual choice for Christmas, but mixed with fresh greens from Nature, copper accents and splashes of red ~ calm & festive.
I think it started early in the Fall, collecting pine cones and acorns with my sweet little grand baby.
We pointed to the big pines that lined our path, their branches hanging from the weight of the cones, showing where they came from, watching precious little hands picking up the fallen cones.
"Mummy will be so surprised when she sees the wreath you are making her" we said.
We came home from our outings and placed our found treasures on the table ~
I am probably one of the very few who does not care for chocolate.
I do, however, have a husband & daughter who are chocoholics :-)
So it did not take long for a box of Christmas chocolates to be finished once they were opened up the other night. The one thing I did want from the chocolate box was the little brown covering that protects the chocolates!
I have some little presents that are on their way to friends and needed some soft packaging material & this was perfect.
Simply fold in half, punch a hole on either side, do the same to a little stamped tag, and thread through both with a pretty ribbon.
It's not how much we give
but how much love
we put into giving
