white wrappings

I keep a closet of white textured papers, recycled and vintage ribbons and containers
to make it easy this time of year to wrap it all up...

Winter white flowers

Winter white bulbs are flowering in windowsills, on mantels, and tabletops...amaryllis,
paperwhites and hyacinths add fragrance and life on these cold winter days...
