A few of the vintage ornaments I have collected or inherited.
Wrapping gifts beautifully was a specialty of my grandma. At Christmas, she gave one gift to each grandchild. She had exquisite taste, her gifts were wonders . . . and the presentation was just as important to her. She lived to be 96 and at her last Christmas she still wrapped beautiful boxes! So for this Pretty Party, I thought what better thing to do than get those presents wrapped and do it in Grandma's style. I think she would be pleased I have continued her tradition.
The paper is all inherited from Grandma, I've added some embellishements she would have loved! I made an origami pinwheel cuz the gift inside is related. My daughter might read this and I don't want to give it completely away!
The paper flowers were originally all white. I used the edge of a red Sharpie to duplicate the flowers on the wrapping paper.
It's a good thing my son is so easy going and accepts all my little quirks. . . cuz this is the least frilly of the gifts that he is getting. He likes vintage cars and old coins. I thought he might like this treatment.
