Tsutsumi and Furoshiki

This is what I found on my pillow yesterday!  There are so many things to say about this I don't know where to begin!  First, of all I love cute surprises like this.  Second, could my hubby be any more awesome than to wrap it in this incredible flour cloth from Kate Spain?  I have had this cloth laying around for months because I was going to blog about how much I love Kate Spain and her great collection.  I am still going to blog the other flour cloths I got from her because I love love them. 

But I also have to mention that I love tsutsumi and furoshiki.  Tsutsumi is the Japanese art of gift wrapping and furoshiki are the Japanese cloths used to wrap gifts.  It is not only a very considerate, beautiful way to give a gift, but also a "green" method as there is paper waste. 

Wondering what's inside?  Check back and I will post it tomorrow on my bday!

If you just had to know, George gave me a Spyder3 for my bday. What is that you might ask? It's a monitor color calibration tool that I desperately needed. I have been having some color issues lately and he knows I am too lazy to ever deal with it. I am so happy he installed it and did the whole thing. My monitor is now calibrated and I didn't have to lift a finger. Thank you George!

I was wondering about the gift. I haven't heard of the Spyder3, but I'll trust that it was quite helpful to you. I love the flour cloth. Where did you get it?

Sorry, I forgot to mention I got it at Steinmart over in Rookwood.
