    I wish I could tell you that I am one of those people who has all their shopping and wrapping done early in December.

But that would be a lie.

Fact – right now my kitchen table and island are covered with wrapping paper and gifts and I am hoping to be done by tomorrow.

And that would be the earliest I have ever been done – fingers crossed?

So, for me, when I wrap a present, I want to make it special and pretty – but not complicated.

So this year I picked out a simple red paper and some green and white twine.

When shopping at a local craft fair this fall, I found these lovely handmade buttons that I simply tied on after wrapping the twine around a few times.

I also wrapped one using simple vintage buttons – but any type of button would work.  How many of us have a collection of stray buttons that we could put to use.

Vintage buttons are fairly easy to find and inexpensive.

If you wanted, you could also pick up some special buttons at the fabric store.

I used a tag shaped punch and green paper to punch out a simple tag that I added some scrapbook letters to.

By tucking in some simple boxwood cuttings from my yard (once again!), it makes it special without all the trouble of making a bow.

About Finding Home

My name is Laura and I have been running a small interior decorating business since 2004. I have always had a love for decorating but I never fully realized it until about 10 years ago. I live in New York with my husband and two daughters. They support me and encourage me at every turn. I have always loved the “hunt” for the next treasure, especially when you have to get down and dirty to discover it. I feel like it is time to start taking my business in a new direction. I am not sure exactly what that will be, but this blog is about that journey. About finding a sense of home, a place where we belong and can most be ourselves. Thank you for being part of my journey.

    I wanted to comment how much I love your style– there are many pretty houses out there but most are too white or too rigid/frigid/static for me. Your home is beautiful but somehow the home part comes through– it is a not a stage set, it’s a place where people live. I’ve been poring over the pictures to see how things are put together. I particularly like the transom you put in– I’ve pinned any pictures I can find, in the hope of having it replicated someday!

  4. Okay….at least you are wrapping! I am still buying! Off to the mall today with bells on!

    Have a blessed day my wonderful friend!

  5. I’ll be wrapping this weekend — I was so late this year and my kid’s picks were from so many online stores that I took a killing in shipping! Ah well. Your presents are beautiful! And it makes me want to plant some boxwoods in my yard come Spring!

    :) Linda

  6. absolutely stunning Laura! Love those buttons and I am a sucker for baker’s twine! :)

  7. Laura, you are just delightful and so is your blog. These wrapping ideas are so fun and pretty!! Pinned thist to my Joyeux Noel board. Have a sweet Christmas!

    I just bought a small antique sleigh and googled “images” to get some inspiration on how to decorate it. To my delight, I found your blog and now have a vision. After looking though your images, I was even more pleased when I saw the Hartt Shoe sign above your doorway. I live in Fredericton and it made me smile!

  9. I like your philosophy for Christmas gifts – make them look pretty but uncomplicated! I love wrapping gifts but Christmastime is often overwhelming for me…so this is good advice. Wish you the best with the rest of your preparations!

  10. Such pretty packages, Laura! (Loving the buttons.)

  11. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Laura, I love your gift wrapping ideas..how do you keep that Christmas yard so tight without an extra pr. of hands. You must own a lot of different punches..let me guess, you’re a scrapbooker or card maker? Gosh, I think I need to go down to Michael’s and buy some new punches. I gave all mine away last year. One could use them all year round using cardstock or use old greeting cards. What nifty ideas you have. Do you save all your small scraps of wrapping paper for smaller gifts? How does the boxwood stay fresh if you wrap the gifts so far in advance or is it faux?
    Thanks for sharing your ideas with your blog fans!
