Countdown to Christmas | Papyrusaurus (Giveaway)

Welcome to the Countdown to Christmas {Etsy} Party! 

Today, I'm pleased to feature Ashley from Papyrusaurus

(Because the shop owner has been on vacation for the past week preparing for a large event, I delayed posting this review until her shop is back up and running. Which is just more fun for the rest of us and a little extension of the party! Hope no one minds! )

As is probably obvious by now, I love Christmas, and I love decorating for Christmas! In fact, we're getting the decorations down tomorrow. (Yes, before Thanksgiving!) But I digress. I just love ornaments. I have ones that my parents have given me through the years. I have a ton of snowmen from the first tree I ever decorated in college. I have quite a few that Hubs brought into the marriage. And there are those that Hubs and I have exchanged or collected while traveling. Even with ALL those ornaments, I'm always looking for something unique, something one of a kind, something that will stand out on the tree.

My Thoughts
Papyrusaurus has one such ornament! This Pinecone Ornament is made from pages of a book. (Mine is made from pages of a dictionary, but other options include Harry Potter and Twilight!) The layers are quite delicate, but together they make a fairly substantial ornament! And the brown satin ribbon hangar adds just the right touch of fancy. If you're not big on traditional Christmas decor, I think you'll really enjoy this ornament. It's perfect to hang on a tree but not so "Christmasy." You could actually display it year round if you chose!

Additionally, I was so impressed with the packaging. It arrived in clear cellophane wrapping, complete with a little gold ribbon. Once it arrives in the mail, it's already wrapped and ready to be given as a gift if you choose. (Plus, the little origami dinosaur that Ashley put in the box was just too cute!)

Here are a couple of other favorites from the shop ...

The little stars inside this ornament are so sweet. Very pretty!

Pretty much anything related to The Sandlot is a winner in my book!

What a pretty print! I love the idea of using old book pages as art ... upcycle! There's a huge variety of prints in the shop, and they're all so cute!

  1. I really like the pine cone ornament and I love the bacon sign.

  2. The Sandlot sign made me laugh - I say that frequently!

  3. Oh my gosh I love the heart ornament! It's so cute :D
