Presentation is all…

Every year R goes to the beach for a week before Christmas for his “winter retreat” which includes reading books, taking beach walks, drinking some scotch and…putting together some wacky and wonderful Christmas gifts.  His wrappings sometimes include plastic vegetable bags, shells, unidentifiable items that are familiar yet not…boxes, tins, plastic containers.  These are imaginative and..often..hilarious.  Here’s my favorite from this year…a wooden box that candles came in, the top of some screw-cap wine, and the new kitchen tongs we’ve been needing…

Here’s the deal…sometimes I can’t stand to unpack them…like these two favorites from past years, the first pretty sublime

and this…old cheese box, thread…cloud paper from an old gift…

Better than diamonds…
