Au revoir

I was deeply saddened by what happened to those innocent children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The pain of loss their family have to cope with is unthinkable. My thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been changed forever by this tragedy.

Our Christmas vacation starts in a couple of days, so this will likely be my last post until just before the new year. I will be spending some quality time with Anthony and mia familia, and that means no work (hopefully) and blogging.

Before taking the short break, I want to share with you some pictures of the gifts this year. I am still buying and wrapping so this is the snapshot to-date.

I can't tell you how much I love this blush-colored wrapping paper, so vintagey and elegant enough to be used as wallpaper.

Ribbon is such an easy way to pretty up gift wrapping.

I also added a few new ornaments to the tree: It took me quite a while to hunt down this glass pinecone ornament from Chapters Indigo. They were all sold out online and only a couple of stores still had a few pieces left. It brought back all the nostalgia.

This is an antiqued gold glass ornament from GLUCKSTEINHOME holiday collection.

With that I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and safe Year 2013! I will be back to share our holiday stories soon...
