Exciting News ~ Simple Joys Paperie is featured in the February 2011 issue of Romantic Homes magazine!

This is the perfect wreath for your cottage, shabby chic, French flea market, Paris apartment, romantic, or vintage style decor. Hang a beautiful wreath or two at your wedding or engagement party... hang them on the doors of your church, or at the reception... or use to add vintage charm to your evening soirees... wherever you desire soft, creamy, dreamy, vintage whites with a French flair.

Book used: Minimum Essentials of French (c)1935.

Colors in this piece: Ivory, cream, black.

This particular wreath is approximately 17" in diameter.

The centerpiece is an old flyleaf page with a bee inside a wreath printed on it by me. The medallion is surrounded by a hand-pleated, crepe paper ruffle.

A wire hanger is attached to the base on the back. This wreath can hang with the vintage ribbon, or you may remove the ribbon and hang from the wire loop in the back. The base is covered with pages from the same book. The back is finished very neatly. The wreath is signed and dated on the back, as well as having the name and date of the book used.
Note: I mistakenly wrote 2010 and then corrected it to 2011.

I don’t destroy perfectly good books as a rule, and use books that are falling apart, have pages missing, or are damaged in one way or another.

*I ship in large 18" x 18" x 6" boxes purchased specifically for the wreaths. I also use lots of cushioning materials to protect the wreath inside the box. Be sure to save your box ~ it is perfect for storing the wreath when needed. I use UPS GROUND for these packages, unless you are in a nearby state, and then I will use USPS Priority. Insurance is included on all wreaths.


$1 from each sale of a Simple Joys Paperie item tagged with teamepe will be donated to a charitable organization that helps with cancer research, cancer treatments, and hospice services for those affected with cancer.
