Tea Towel Wrapping "Paper"
Every winter two friends and I have lunch together. The friends are my former "bosses" - the two ladies that I was a secretary for at the Girl Scout council before I had my babies. We usually get together during Christmastime, but as that didn't work out this year, we had a January luncheon instead. This time we met at the new home of one of the ladies - she and her husband now live in a retirement community. She gave us a jaw-dropping tour of the facility - I felt like I was in an elegant resort. I have to say that I was drooling over the library where they frequently give teas by the fireplace. . .
Anyway, we like to exchange small gifts with one another and I wanted to show you an idea that I borrowed from another friend who gave me a book wrapped in a tea towel this Christmas. For my two friends, I wrapped a box of pretty notecards in a colorful towel, slipped a Starbucks gift card in recycled gift card containers and tied everything with a pretty bow. I love that the "wrapping paper" is a gift in and of itself!
