Brown paper packages……=)

“…Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things…”

One of my favorite Christmas songs! Such a catchy tone with cheerful lyrics.

This time of year I always seem to watch “The Sound of Music” I love this movie! We watched it as a family on Thanksgiving. Who doesn’t like to watch a family movie with the entire family?

Christina and me trying to cut corners on Christmas cost this year, decided to wrap with craft paper…they look beautiful! And each time I see them I think of this song.





“My Favorite Things”

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

Such a wonderful warm song…just makes me smile every time I hear it=)

Have a great Friday!!! And please let my know what you think.



  1. Wow you did a good job on wrapping! I love that song! We have watched The Sound Of Music to many times to count. Several years ago, all of us kids memorized and sung the Cuckoo song for some of our family. It was fun! :)

  2. The gifts look really nice Olivia! That is a great alternative instead of buying gift wrap. I also love The Sound Of Music:)

    1. thanks gracie=) it's super cheap as well....i know the sound of music is one of the best movies ever made!
