Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

The Packages Were Wrapped . . .

The guest room is where the package wrapping activity takes place. With my roll of gold paper and various spools of ribbons, I take our carefully selected gifts and transform them into Christmas packages!

I've always loved wrapping presents and the first Christmas that I purchased gifts for the family, I spent HALF of what I was given to buy papers and ribbons and glue and glitter so that the outside of the packages were as neat as the gifts inside.

I still like to make pretty packages!
It was snowy yesterday and cold and so with The Three Tenors Christmas album on the stereo I spent most of the morning creating beautiful presents to be opened Christmas morning.

I've a few more to wrap but soon all the presents will be under the tree. A small sea of gold around our glittery Christmas tree.

"I like to make pretty packages." I think you've outdone yourself, your packages are beautiful.

I love your presents, all in gold. And the ribbons make the packages looks just so lovely.
