I usually make alot of the gifts that I give for Christmas, especially to the children of the family. But this year that has been a far fetched dream. Instead I did all my Christmas shopping at the most spectacular store last weekend, and what a find and so appropriate for my life: a French inspired boutique that is right in the heart of Amsterdam. And you won't believe that I actually found the most beautiful pillow cover embroidered with the Australian flag in a soft blue fabric with white stitching. What are the chances of that?
The service there was incredible, and check out the wrapping: snowflakes and stars nestled under cellophane on craftbrown & gold paper. Fantastique! It reminds me of how I used to wrap Christmas gifts in my store in oz, but mine was just plain brown craft paper with rose petals under the cellophane layer, I love those colours as you are probably well aware by now. Wondering where I went?
