"It's A Wrap" Giveaway...

If you're dreaming of a Provençal Christmas, this is YOUR giveaway.

I have been a Pierre Deux devotee for decades and that style and those
colors come alive at Christmastime beautifully.

The rich greens and
reds of the traditional French Country style are seemingly "made for"
this time of year!

So, in honor of one of my favorite design styles, I pulled together a beautiful
giftwrap collection just for this giveaway with
products from
Cavallini, Midori Ribbon, and

I've used these products for years with many, many compliments on our giftwrapping and it finally dawned on me that I should share the beauty with YOU!

You won't find better quality papers/ribbons than these --

the giftwrap is so heavy, you could actually sew it and make
paper stockings (OOH! that's a great idea!).

It is not like anything you've used -- trust me, this is NOT the
kind of paper you'll want to rip away and toss in the garbage.
I've used this beautiful paper on the backs of bookshelves -- like you
might use wallpaper.

Of course, it makes the most elegant giftwrap, as well...

There is also the most fabulous paper boxwood garland that is
wired and can be used for all manner of things -- wonderful on
gifts, but also fabulous for fashioning mini-wreaths or using as
fanciful holiday "twist tie" for gift baskets.

The ribbon is gorgeous ruby-red organza, green taffeta with
thin red borders on either side.

A tin of fabulous Italian paper Cavallini gift/packaging labels
which "just happen" to coordinate PERFECTLY with the paper
and ribbon I selected... Funny how that happens... :)

So, here is what the lucky winner will get:

10 heavy sheets of Midori Provence Paper in French red,
retail price is $4.60 per sheet - this is amazing paper...
(Provence paper is 100% recycled cotton fiber, measuring 21"x29")

2 bolts of Midori organza ribbon in Cranberry
(each bolt is 9 yards long and the ribbon is 2" wide)

10 yards of narrow, red-edged Provence green ribbon.
Perfect paired with the light, wispy organdy!

A bundle of boxwood wired garland/ribbon.
(This stuff is addicting! You'll find yourself putting it EVERYWHERE!)

1 tin of fun Cavallini labels/stickers -
you'll LOVE using these top-quality labels with their
distinct old-world look.

Want a chance to win this wrapping giveaway?

Just leave a comment on this post
and on Thursday afternoon I'll
pick one winner.

With any luck, I'll have the winner's address info in time to mail out the
collection in Friday's mail!

You can feel free to spread the word about the giveaway.

Doing so won't give you extra chances at winning
(sorry, I know that's
a usual perk, but being such a busy time right now, I'm lucky to keep track
of just the comments right here on this blog...)
but if you feel like
mentioning the giveaway on your blog,
that would be swell.

Good luck and whoever wins this package is going to have
some GORGEOUSLY wrapped gifts!!

And don't worry!

If you don't win this one,

I have an entirely different collection in the wings

ready to be given away!

TOTALLY different look and colors!

That giveaway will start Thursday night and the winner
will be drawn Saturday.

Isn't this fun???

I love doing this!

Good luck!

Nice to visit your site - as usual you have such great stuff, and wonderful eye candy....and you are KILLING ME!! I should be working, but I then start browsing all the other blogs you have listed and then start reading all your comments...it is like going down a rabbit hole.

THIS is why I stay away from the internet....I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs...but the blog world is too addicting for me when there are so many good ones out there! :-)

Thanks for sharing,
