I love buttons! Thank you for the lovely tags - so generous of you to share them!


Just letting you know, I can NOT open my clothes closet door because of all the unwrapped gifts in there. You are not alone!! And, yes, not enough time to wrap, but plenty of time to read your blog. What a whisper of joy each day. Mary

Thank you so much. I was just cringing at the plain white cut-out-of-index-cards tags I've taped on my packages. You've saved me from total embarassment on Christmas morning.


Thanks and Merry Christmas to you and yours!


Thank you so very much, Charlotte. They are charming. I have finished my Westmoreland "Village' and just love it. Wonderful kit!!!

The Decorated House

Hi Charlotte!
What sweet gift tags. I love how the "naked" tree looks when you first bring it in. Then it looks so beautiful with just lights. But, we always do just keep right putting things on them don't we? And of course they are quite magical after that, too.
Merry Christmas to You & Yours!


What a clever idea. They are charming.I especially like the one with the black toile background.


these are wonderful
thanks for thinking of us & sharing some of your creations!
merry christmas

I seem to just be repeating the sentiments of others, but...thanks for being so generous with your time and talent. ;)

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!



So beautiful, and so sweet! Happy Christmas, Charlotte. :)


You're such a sweetie pie for thinking of us Charlotte, thank you so much for your darling tags! & I am so envious of all your red buttons.

(whispering - I still haven't finished my shopping or begun my wrapping. Ay yi yi.)

Wishing you and all those dear to you, a wonderful Christmas and much happiness in 2008.


I'll add my thanks too. This was so thoughtful of you. Now if I could just get someone to do the rest of my wrapping and run to the grocery store.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!


What a sweet gift to your blog readers. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!
