A Bow by any Other Name...



My niece is getting 'officially' married tomorrow... the big wedding is going to take place later, in Puerto Vallarta, but the "By gosh we're married now" ceremony is going to be tomorrow, so my mother can attend...

So I got creative...

I used to love to wrap presents. I had a job in 1971 working for Campbell's Bookstore in Westwood Viillage. I loved that job. Not only did I get to wrap the books (a fairly easy job, as they are usually rectangular), I got to be creative... and I got to touch all the new books that came into the store...

sigh..

Oh.. and I got a really cool DISCOUNT!...

Lately, I haven't much cared for wrapping... at Christmas, I sometimes get a wild hair and do something very different, but if you get a present from me in the middle of the year, it will usually have Christmas paper... inside out!

For this, however, I wanted something unique.

I practiced on a package to bonho, and then went bonkers last night..

I know it's over the top, but I love it...

I think it's mondo fabuloso! And anyways, wedding gift-wrappings are supposed to be over the top--it's The Rules.
Also, I love wrapping gifts.

It's very pretty, Miz! You did a great job.
I happen to be giftwrap challenged.

That package is fuckin' amazing. It looks like a cake. I might use this as a template for one, in fact. If that's okay.

You did a lovely job wrapping mine too. I wore the bee socks today, by the way.
