I did think of buying some shiny new giftwrap - Emma Bridgewater's blue & white 'Big Love' design came to mind - but I need to be mindful of the pennies. Really can't justify spending three or four pounds on a big sheet of paper!
So, instead I dug out a roll of the brown stuff.
It's surprisingly handsome for something designed to simply wrap parcels in. Actually, it makes great wrapping paper for presents, especially teamed up with a fancy ribbon - pale grey or blush pink would look pretty. In this case, brown paper makes a neutral background for little things like an old Christmas card of a cat in a hat or a fab postcard of a rather stout lady feeding what look like v. grateful feral moggies. I'll keep adding bits and pieces to the display as I come across them, making it much more personal than a mass produced item could ever be.
