Snowy Roses and a Gift for You

Hello, friends! I hope, if you celebrate it, that your Thanksgiving was splendid! Ours, with all my family, certainly was and we so appreciate all the warm wishes from around the globe. I must say I was quite touched at the heartfelt greetings from friends in England, New Zealand, France, South America and many other locales where Thanksgiving is not a standard holiday. Perhaps we should make it that way, as we all share the spirit of gratitude. The holiday is certainly spreading: D’s sister in Chile served a full Thanksgiving dinner in honour of their American exchange student and more than one blogging friend overseas tackled creating the feast. I even saw a website that listed the Parisian restaurants serving turkey dinner on Thursday!

I had a busy weekend but not too busy to create the annual holiday gift tag download for you with my scrapbook paper designs, some vintage ephemera and photos of my David Austin Roses. To download, click here and enjoy!

I have quite a few more in progress but let’s start with these and maybe in a week or so I can post some others. (I’ve saturated the colors in the download PDF so they should print well even on matte paper.)

A quick reminder: all readers of my blog can receive a 20% discount on my 2012 calendars by using the coupon code CALENDAR20 with my thanks. (Oh, on our Midnight in Paris calendar, too!) Along with free shipping on all prints in my shops.

And that said, I think we all have a flurry of activities coming up so I wish you a cheery and happy week ahead!

lots of love,

– g

    November 27, 2011

  • Very pretty eye candy for a gloomy Monday morning like we're having here in Dublin! Thanksgiving is such a lovely holiday, I really wish it was celebrated here too, it seems like such a special reason to get together and be grateful for all the good things we have :)

    November 28, 2011
  • I just bought your last roses calendar, it will help me get through this dark period:)
    Why flower shops don't sell roses like that, only boring "normal" ones, you know (I mean the shape of the rose), at least here!
    Have nice week

    November 28, 2011
  • Dear Georgainna! Thanks for sharing these pieces of beauty!!! And roses! I look out of the window and see deep white snow… I look at the screen and see magnificent faintly pink roses! Inspiring!!!!!!!!!

    November 28, 2011
  • Dear Georgianna, WOW, Your photos are gorgeous and your gift tags look AMAZING!! I will definitely download the pdf and will enjoy using the tags this holiday season!! Off to check out your calendars again too. Wini xox

    November 28, 2011
  • Good morning Georgianna!
    I have to tell you, yesterday I bought an iMac and suddenly everything looks different online, including your photos. They are even lovelier than I thought! Wishing you a peaceful Monday : )


    November 28, 2011
  • So lovely holiday gift tags.
    I love them all!!

    November 28, 2011

  • the rose pictures are beautiful….hopefully you haven't had snow for real yet…lol the tags are gorgeous. thank you for the lovely gift!!

    glad to hear you had a great thanksgiving, we did too and i am loving all of the leftovers.

    November 28, 2011
  • Dear Georgianna, How generous of you to share your beautiful photography with us. As always, your work surpasses everything else. Last year's calendar was very special and I look forward to receiving calendar 2012.

    November 28, 2011
  • Hello G
    Glad you had a wonderful thanksgiving with family.
    I like how you photographed the roses, a view that reminds one of the perfumed scent that comes from the soft petals.

    November 28, 2011
  • Oh Georgianna, everything is so pretty! I really love the rose photos. Can I ask about all the little bokeh circles? Are they an action?

    November 28, 2011
  • Your roses are gorgeous! Its so nice to see roses when its so cold and sparse outside and roses have long gone for the season. Other than buying bouquets of flowers I will just have to wait and also enjoy flowers here!!
    Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    November 28, 2011
  • Thank you for sharing these wonderful tags with us. And the rose photo is magical…so lovely.

    November 28, 2011
  • What impressed me the most was the correct spelling of "honour" in a blog post about Thanksgiving! Well, perhaps not the most. There is also the matter of the beautiful photos, fantastic designs, meticulous prose, general presentation…..

    November 28, 2011
  • Your rose photos are so beautiful.. So soft and pretty. I just love them.. And that is so sweet of you to share your tags with us.. I will definitely be printing them out.. Thanks…

    Hugs, Linda

    November 28, 2011
  • I was quite surprised to hear that other countries were in the Thanksgiving spirit with us Americans. Such a generous gesture!

    The roses are splendid and the bokeh stunning. Love the gift tag designs. Marvelous work!

    November 28, 2011

  • Hi Georgianna: I could not get the tags to download. There was just a blank page. Valerie

    November 29, 2011
  • HI Val, Thanks very much for letting me know. A blank page should open while the file is downloading automatically to your desktop. I've emailed it directly to you but you can also check your downloads folder and see if it ended up there?

    If anyone else has any problems downloading, do let me know!

  • Hi Georgianna!
    As always, you take my breath away – such beautiful pink roses. I also adore your red poppy images in the previous post – my eyes danced in delight looking over that field. :)
    So pretty.
    Thank you so much for sharing all you do with us here.

    Your world has expanded so much since I checked in last time… I have been remiss in keeping up with my own life, as well as my friends' accomplishments and creations. It was wonderful to browse here and at your other new places.
    Congrats on the publications! They are such wonderful magazines and what beautiful write ups – I'm so happy for you!
