Gifts of Endearment

Thoughtful gestures of gift wrapped kindness from friends always touches my heart.
Just wanted to post a few things that came my way this week.

Fig Spread from Janet wrapped in the Sports Page (Go Giants!)
with a Cardboard Gift Tag with my initials- paper clipped.  So great! 


My friend Kate Frankel is known for her beautiful creations made of wool felt, hand cut.
Love this simple leaf wrap accessory here bounded by a thin leather band.
The apricot jam was equally a treat.
Be on the lookout for her future website... 

My girlfriend Tracy brings succulents wrapped in a basket.
Love it!!!
