Changing things up.

This was our family room last year.

I really loved it!

My wrapping was just ok..

This year I want to really take it up a notch.

So I have a few ideas here..

Thought you may enjoy,

Oh how I love these rosettes!
Blogs.babble has a great DIY.
You can find my flower DIY here.


Love the candy

So simply sweet!


A little pom pom lovin' here.

And that simple sprig of boxwood...perfect!

How about filling your packages with candy?


Thank you Country Living for this idea.

More fabric roses from pretty petals

Style me pretty does just that!

Now that I have all of these great ideas, shopping is next.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

This weekend will be filled with family,travel and plenty of food I'm sure.

Hope you have a great one too!

  1. You did a beautiful job wrapping your the white paper and the turquoise theme! Very pretty. Lots of ideas here! The rosettes are awesome!

    Have a great weekend, Susie!


  2. Hi Susie, I love these ideas. The rosettes are so pretty.

    I have started shopping for the kids, but there is still much more to do. My husband is deployed for the month of December, so we won't be celebrating Christmas here until the first week of January...should be interesting.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  3. Lovely ideas for gift decorating but my grandkids don't give a hoot about it and I feel like I am wasting my time. So, just to make myself happy, I do a few pretty ones & place them in front of the others. One thing I am going to do is bring in more brown tones, aquas & silver.

    I am NOT a Black Friday shopper. I have started my shopping but more to do. Hopefully there will be something left after the mad midnight dash on Thanksgiving!

    Have a Blessed Thanksgiving with your loved ones.

  4. No shopping for gifts yet, but I do have a list for 4 of the grandkids already so that's a relief, just knowing what they want!

    Sweet packaging!!

  5. Lovely photos. I'm a new follower of your blog. I haven't yet started shopping-which is very unusual for me! Thanks for sharing these great ideas.

  6. Oh I love all these ideas...the candy is really cute, but Max would have field day under the tree.

  7. Susie, I so ENJOY your blog and home/craft ideas! What a welcome oasis from daily tasks and responsibilities! :) Your artwork is beautiful and inspiring. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  8. Really beautiful. Happy holidays to you.

  12. “Women really dress based on their body shape. For example, Black Bandage Dress I’m very athletic. I have bigger shoulders and bigger bust Herve Leger Dress and smaller in the hip area. So when it comes to Herve Leger, Dirndl Dress for me it’s really about A-line dresses because it gives me a hip but minimizes me on the top.”While there’s no doubt that Lubov and her husband, Max, design for women everywhere, you can’t help but imagine her stamping Halloween costumes a mini-claim on a certain white dress and capelet pair when it was in its early stages. It’s a look we can imagine every woman instantly coveting when it’s available in April.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
