Holiday Packages

I'm honored to have been featured over at Shabby Tea Party! BettyJean is starting a fun new linky party for the holiday season to show off our Best Dressed Gift Packaging! Hop on over for the details. It starts right away!

My vintage mug style tea cup has no mark, but looks French to me! I've paired it with an orphaned saucer.

The wrapping always begins before Thanksgiving for sending on packages with visiting family.

And then it goes on sometimes past midnight on Christmas Eve!

May as well make yourself comfortable, and well fortified!

I hope the fun has started for you!
 Hope your holiday week goes well!
Ciao! for now!


Join me at
Tea Time Tuesday

Oh those pretty packages are sooo lovely! Thank you for the heads up on the party too! This surely gets me in the mood to decorate for the if only I could do things in advance vs. waiting for the last minute! :)

The package with the lace is beautiful! Yeah, this is one party I won't be attending. Or at least not to be a participant. I'm a terrible package wrapper. I'm so bad, my daughter took over when she was 12. Now *her* wrapping is wonderful. Creative, pretty. Mine still stinks and since she's one her own now everybody knows when a gift is from me. LOL

Beautiful present. Just love the pillow.

Hugs Bente

Your blog is just so beautiful, from the moment I click through to it right to the end - all the gorgeous pictures of the gorgeous things. Love your teacup and so glad that orphaned saucer found a home :) Your packages are gorgeous!!! I'd love to get a box like that, and no I wouldn't open it, just sit and look at it forever. Thanks for sharing all the beauty with us lucky readers.

This is so gorgeous. It has such a warm, soothing feeling! I think my blood pressure just went down:-)

Olive Cooper said...

That tea cup is full of style I must say. You do wrap the pretty package.

Sarah said...

Jacqueline, your tea cup is gorgeous and looks like a perfect fit to the oprhaned saucer. Your packages looks stunning. Presentation is everything! ;-)
Smart to start at Thanksgiving and send them home with visitors rather than having to mail them.
Happy Holidays, my friend! ~ sarah

Your mug is very elegant and unique and I love your gift wrapping too.

Hi J,
You do wrap a very pretty package!.. and well you know I love that white ruffled pillow :-) Let the wrapping begin!


You always do such pretty, romantic vignettes. Makes me want to pop in for tea!

Sweet Mug...I collect mugs, but none are as pretty as that a potty bowl holding cards on a chair...oh my gosh!!! Cute! Thanks...I'm a faithful follower from Mel's Designs from the Cabin

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I would have bought those wonderful thick linens, too. I don't ever find nice ones like that here. Love all your vintage goods and that apron is beautiful. I hope you have the best Thanksgiving.

Lavender Cottage said...

Wrapping gifts is not something I do well, I have good intentions but lack creativity.
You have shown some very pretty packages and the tea cup would be a delight to sip from.

Nellie Feizbakhsh said...

The embroidered pillow is so lovely in the background, pretty vignettes!

Jennelise said...

Beautiful present - I love the little rose you added. It makes the parcel look so romantic :)

Eileen said...

That present look so pretty with the lace on it. Very inspiring. I start out making very pretty presents but by the time christmas gets here, I am rushing around and slapping on the paper!


Beautiful packages. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
