Hello My Sweets!
I hope your Christmas/Holiday has been warm and glowing and you've found your way out of the maze of ribbons,bows and gift wrap on the carpet!
As I played in the studio yesterday, I unearthed, or rather rediscovered, a large bundle of vintage gift wrap.
About 2 days before Christmas, and in the mad rush to beat the clock, I had a brief race through Savers, while everyone sat in the car with the stopwatch.
(atleast that's what it felt like...)
But I had "the itch".
And as time was of the essence,I headed straight for the End Caps and The Hooks where the bags of ribbon,little frames,bits and bobs are under $2.00.
Basically, I grabbed
I don't know,maybe 20 a few mixed bags~
Australian Rules shopping!
One of them was a bundle of fun vintage gift wrap.
Here are the most charming of the lot for you to see.
First are two darling children's patterns.
Isn't the little cowboy wrap adorable!!!!!?
I have the perfect idea for this paper,Cowboy Carter!
The teddies are very sweet too and the muted colors are very pretty.
here are some super sweet baby shower patterns.
My favorite is on the left~the colors and artwork are so cute!
But put on your sunglasses to look at the paper on the right!
Yowza! Let's see...1971 would be my guess!
How 'bout you?
Here are some more colorful wrappings.
The paper with the stockings is cute isn't it? I'll definately use it Christmas 2009.
The others could be used all year 'round.
Below are some vintage florals and some marvelous wedding gift wrap.
Love the Bride~so shabby chic!
For the bird lovers~here are some pretty Spring patterns.
For the Angel lovers~
and lastly,in my estimation, here are the oldest of the bunch.
Isn't it fun to see what can be found in just a few fast minutes!
Gotta to love this artsy, thrifty life!
with love and vintage happiness~
