all wrapped up…
Posted in paris: made by hand, pia's photos July 13th, 2009 by piablog


…a little gift for a faraway friend which sits on my dining table. Wrapped in some lovely paper I bought in Amsterdam many moons ago, a little butterfly tag from Royal Buffet, some Japanese tape given to me from a friend who just came back from Japan, and a strip of velvet ribbon I bought at the Noordermarkt (remember the ribbon girls?).

I’m sleepy. It’s bed time. I’m hoping for sweet dreams tonight.

Bonne nuit!

    A beautiful wrapping job, that’s for sure. Wrapping might be my favorite part of gift-giving.

    Sometimes the wrapping is just as much fun as the giving. This is gorgeous.

    This is simply perfect. I adore butterflies and beautiful gift wrap both. I would be thrilled to receive such a package. P.S. I bought Paris: Made by Hand the other day, and I am loving it! Beautiful photos and lovely prose.
