Last week Dave was away in Japan for work, and when he got home on Sunday night he unloaded his suitcase and presented me with boxes and boxes of delicious Japanese delicacies – mochi, chocolate, creme caramel from Kobe, wafer biscuits, and even a German Baumkuchen. Um, luckiest girl ever! :D
I thought I’d take some photos of them before they got scoffed by yours truly, because the packaging is just too beautiful not to. I really loved the process of opening each of these boxes.. carefully unwrapping the thick outer paper, removing the lid, taking out the pretty little info book and wooden fork, peeling back the velum, and voila – a set of delicious mochi. It really prolongs the joy of receiving such a gift, and I love that :)
Have a great weekend you guys! Seeing as I’ll have already eaten a bunch of these goodies by the time you read this, I think I’ll be doing a lot of exercise this weekend ;)
A collection of very pretty coral coloured objects that have made their way into my life lately.
Clockwise from top left: Beautiful coral spot ribbon I picked up in Hong Kong (sorry no idea where it came from originally), Printed Notepad from kikki-K (a gift from a lovely friend), Wildflower wrapping paper (from Rifle Paper Co.), Frankie Magazine (a gift from the same lovely friend), Artnic Ink Pads (bought locally.. again sorry I’m not sure where to get them online).
Been making a very pretty little garland for a friend who just had a baby. I haven’t made a paper garland like this for a while… it was nice to get back into it!
Only 5 days until Christmas! Yippee!
If you’re like me and still have gifts to wrap, you could probably use some cute little gift tags right about now hey! I’ve put together these bauble tags just for you that would be perfect for wrapping those last minute gits! Enjoy :)
I’ve made them in two formats – A4 and Letter, so just pick the size you’re after below :)
Print them out on light-coloured card, cut around them, and punch a hole in the top before tying them on to your gifts with some pretty ribbon or twine.
