Simply done...

I've been spending more time at Pinterest lately. What a great idee center. I'm loving these simple paper bags adorned in candy canes and burlap twine.
How cute to have these little packages under the tree filled with homemade toffee or a sampling of rich dark cocoa.

A couple of years ago I found the BEST toffee recipe! Click here.
Enjoy...

French Packaging Naturellement

Bien, I know it feels familiar! Yet another post on assez empaquetant, but it feels the perfect time considering the vacances are approaching ever so fast!

This holiday season I'm focusing attention towards d├ętails when wrapping my Christmas gifts. The French emphasize the pretty outside as much as the inside and those idees have always appealed to me in special ways.  
I'm using items found in nature, pine cones and twigs and inexpensive items like coffee filters and burlap to wrap the gifts tenderly that sit under the tree.
Ayez un beau jour
