an idea from Rosamunde Pilcher

A few years ago, this lovely book came through our library, and I wanted to look at it again

She has an elegant and tastefully decorated home in Scotland, and at Christmas time she likes to display many of her cards by hanging them on a ribbon.


I did the same, hanging mine in the kitchen on a long piece of bias tape.

Only those which can hang over the tape. I'm not sure if I'll do anything with the others, but I like this idea.
She displays cards in other places all around the house, in amongst the knick knacks - I do that, too! She says, "It is almost as if we surround ourselves with the people who are close to us."  That's a nice thought.



  1. I like the idea! I haven't been creative when it comes to displaying my cards. I just stick them in a basket.

  2. It's nice to stick them in a basket - I've done that - but they are often forgotten, aren't they? Nobody looks at them. It was fun to do it this way.

  3. Yes, I love this idea. I was going to do it with clothesline this year, since I have a few "clothesline curtains" up here and always have extra trim and mini clothespins on-hand from that. That quote is true too. That's how I feel about all my framed pictures of loved ones. :) Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  4. And a Merry Christmas to you, Val!
