My friends, I think that if we truly enjoy something then we want to share that joy with others, don't you think? Am I the only one that notices beautifully wrapped presents? I think that a lot of people simply toss the paper away in the bin or if they are good stewards of the planet, they will at least recycle the paper!
Me? Why, I am like some MAD woman and store away some of the prettiest paper and re- use it again to wrap presents for friends and family! Just look at this...it was a present from Germany, can you see the German words on the paper? (Thanks, Meike!) And since my Dad was in Germany just after World War II, you know I had to wrap his birthday present in this paper! I happened to have this green ribbon... so even with the pink hearts, I still thought it was just right for my Dad! (After all, it is mostly the green ones that you notice!)
The TIME I have spent looking for just the right color ribbon or bow to go on a present...honestly, you have no idea, I think I must be quite mad...
And if I can't find one...I will crochet one! Of course, all of this takes ages...AGES, I tell you!
Since there have been so many weddings and anniversaries lately... I think I will have a nice song for you here. It is "Romance" and Richard can play this really beautifully but he says he has not been playing enough lately...maybe one day he will allow me to have him playing the guitar for you here! In the meantime, listen to this lovely song. Interestingly, no one knows who wrote the song but we can still enjoy it!
