Nine Years of Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes


A Package from California

Thought you might enjoy seeing Coleen & Company's incredibly elegant gift wrap. (This box was probably the most impeccably packed parcel I've ever received too.) I'm going to maintain the charade and wait until Christmas morning to be "surprised." My grandparents, who bought the Chinese figure on the left, would've absolutely loved Coleen's chic ribbon and paper.

If you are signing off for the holiday week, I wish you a truly magical and safe celebration. But if you plan to spend some time online, please visit again on Christmas.

No, not as far as I know, sorry! It's just the boutique's gift wrap. Isn't it amazing.

I want to know what is in it ...
I woudn't wait if it was me .
The package is the most wonderful thing I have ever seen.
The ribbon makes me think of a trimming from Declerck that I have on my curtains " la grecque" is my favorite pattern.
I didn't know Coleen & co but they have so many wondeful things.
I'll be back for christmas to chack.

Merry Christmas Courtney! Thank you for inspiring (and entertaining!) me on a daily basis and for introducing me to so many new books and styles. I think you'd be proud to see the stack of books that Santa brought this year ;) (all from your lists of course, including Around the World!)

Style Court said...

Michelle, Merry Christmas! I'm so glad Santa was generous :) Thanks for the kind words!
