Wonders and Delights

The season of wonders is upon us, and so swiftly arrived, too, as it often seems. As the days of the waning year begin to rush ahead of themselves in an accelerated whirl of activities, we have little chance, really, to reflect upon the months just passed. We’ve each had trials, we’ve each had triumphs, and some may seem to outweigh others, but balancing it up waits for less festive days to fill the calendar.

These wondrous moments remind us that the magical awaits around many corners, in many forms, as long as we stop and listen and believe.

And a great gift of this season is that it’s all right to believe. To believe in magic, in miracles, in our own truths as well as those of others.

May your last days of this year be filled with wonders and sprinkled with fairy dustings of delight.

In fact, I’m sending you some right now.


Did you get them?

I hope so.

with love,

p. s. a bit more magic for you at ParisByTwo.

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,

I’m late posting these for Remembrance Day, I apologize. But truthfully, what is observed on November 11 should not be relegated to a single day, a sentiment I know we all share.

D and I photographed these fields on a rural drive in France last June. How fitting that we were in the peaceful and beautiful countryside of Normandy.

Thank you for your comments and wishes on the last post – so very much appreciated!

And I neglected to tell you about two new Paris posts on Paris By Two, here and here. We hope you enjoy them.

Hope your week has been splendid so far and ends with a flourish!

much love,

– g
