Parisian Moments

The Eiffel Tower by Georgianna Lane

Hello, friends! It’s been far too long since I brought you a collection of photographs from Paris so here is the first installment of recent images to inspire your dreams and memories of Paris.

And some news! My second online shop, Paris Plus, has been renamed Parisian Moments to more properly reflect its focus on our Paris collections.  A new website dedicated to our Paris adventures is coming soon but in the meantime we’ve stocked the shop with many new works from our recent trips to the City of Light. Also now available in both shops is a line of gallery wrapped canvases which you can see here and here. We’re very excited to release them, and for the month of October, we’re offering a 20% discount with this code: CANVAS20. We’d love to hear what you think about the revamped shop and hear any suggestions you have.

For even more of our travels to Paris and beyond, we’d also love to connect on Instagram @georgiannalane and @aparisianmoment. Look forward to seeing you there!

And, as always, I so appreciate you visiting. Wishing you a joyful week ahead.

Windmills and Windflowers

Kinderdijk by Georgianna Lane

The Windmills at Kinderdijk, The Netherlands

Hello, friends! In late spring we visited one of THE most magical locations I’ve ever experienced: the windmills of Kinderdijk in the Netherlands. Imagine a perfect day of billowing clouds, soft Dutch light and the enchanting structures that are the symbol of Holland. Such a classic scene, right out of a painting. I thought it would be fun to pair images from that never-to-be-forgotten day with a few of charming windflowers, one of my favorite late summer blooms.

While traveling, I shot quite a lot of video footage which I look forward to sharing with you in the months to come. Here is the first and I hope it gives you a taste of what a day at Kinderdijk is like:

p.s. just for fun, here is one more video that I took in the Dutch countryside. Whenever I am getting to stressed about things, this lightens the mood. :)

In other news, I’m creating a small fleet of calendars, for 2015 for my shops and for 2016 and 2017 for my publishers. And editing away on my European photos, more of which will appear here very soon. And all while enjoying our garden and the incredible Seattle summer weather. We love traveling all over the world but our summer hearts belong right here.

Wishing you the most lovely week ahead! Thank you for stopping by.

love,
