As I was cleaning up from our family Christmas gift giving -
I was struck by the beauty of the now 'used' trimmings...
The ribbons and papers were handled with love to adorn a gift
given as a token of love. How could I just quickly toss them in the trash?
This sweet wire flower adorned a gift for me from my daughter.
She didn't even call my attention to it. But you can be sure I noticed.
She made it with 'some wire she had laying around'.
And it doesn't seem she had any intention that I'd keep it.
But keep it I surely will!
And while I did my share of tossing - I also did my share of salvaging.
I can never toss out pretty ribbon and this sheer red is a beauty.
And gold snowflake tissue paper? Gotta keep some of that too...
Sorry if this all makes me sound cheap. But oh how I love trimmings.
Do you recycle gift wrap? Gift bags? Ribbons? Bows?
I have my very own trimmings stash-heaven!
Merry Christmas to me all over again... ~Joyce
