a book page garland

Hello there! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. Ours was splendid! A lovely day, a yummy dinner and a delightful time!

Tomorrow we're going to go cut down a Christmas tree with the fam! 
"It's so exciting it makes me giddy!" -Persuasion (...What else?)
 We've also been working on Christmas presents which is one of our favorite pastimes I have to say...  And I remembered some pictures I took of a present I got last year from my sweet sister-in-law! A handmade gift of course... and such a good idea! Genius in fact!
It is made out of pretty, blue paper and book pages from one of my favorite books: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader! Although the pictures don't do it justice.
 And here it is hanging so nicely above my bookshelf. Very appropriate I must say. =]
 She cut out various sizes of circles, bent them in the most charming manner, stapled them onto brown twine and voila!
Isn't it the cutest? I love it!

 My favorite line in the book... the opening words: "There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it."

Well, happy days to you all! I wish you all a good night and merry morning!
