The Simple Life...

Oh, I do love simple things - and as some of you know, one of my favourite ways to wrap a gift is with simple brown paper and twine of all kinds. I picked up this ropey twine from the supermarket the other day and completely fell in love with it. Oh I know, it's not very glamourous - but it's the simplicity of the thing that really tickles my fancy. Add a lovely card - this one from Jane Cumberbatch's Pure Style series of books (fave, fave, faves!) and you've got a little burst of colour. What more could one need?

Nice! I love brown paper and twine too! I m also thinking of pairing brown paper with glitter or velvet trims for Xmas.

oh, I don;t think it sounds tragic MelRose - the coffee and blue sounds like the ideal accompaniment.
