Paris By Two

Happy Friday, everyone! I have a few things for your weekend, some projects I’ve been working on for the last few months that are finally ready for release!

First, I’m excited to share the launch of a new blog dedicated to our photos of Paris: “Paris By Two”. I hope you get a chance to visit BUT before you do let me say that nothing is going to change here. The new venue just gives us a place to share more of our travel photos while allowing me to concentrate on creating and writing more here again. Already 10 or 11 posts are up at Paris By Two, with more scheduled about twice a week.

No obligation to comment or follow as I know you’re busy. If you’d like to, that would be super, but I’ll always link to new posts here as well. But don’t go away just yet!

To celebrate, I’m doing another little impromptu giveaway. And the good news is that if you entered the last giveaway, you don’t have to enter again to be in this one. In case you missed the first one, to enter now, just visit our new shop and leave me a note in the comments here with the title of the print you’d like if you win.

And what’s the giveaway? Well, I have been in a true frenzy lately and have released two more new calendars, just for fun. So, I’m giving away one of these and one of these in addition to the print of your choice!

Have a beautiful weekend, thank you for visiting, thank you for being generous, kind souls and D and I hope you enjoy the new Paris blog.

A Little Something for Everyone

Hello everyone! I have to say I’m still bowled over by your response and heartfelt words to the giveaway and our new shop. You are each such kind and generous and playful spirits that I had to stop for a few minutes in rereading your comments today for a moment of gratitude that, however and why ever, we’ve connected and you’ve welcomed my world into yours. I absolutely did not, when I began this blog over four years ago, envision that.

Closer to home than recent posts – our David Austin roses and hydrangeas, photographed yesterday in our garden. Graham Thomas has decided to become a tree and is reaching his golden bouquets nearly up to our second floor office window.

As for the giveaway, we do have four winners that I’ll announce in just a moment. But first, as you know, I most enjoy games where everyone wins so to thank everyone for participating, here is a new download for you of a sweet postcard that I purchased at the Port de Vanves flea market in Paris. It is such a charming piece – I can’t help wondering about Mademoiselle Genevieve and how she spent her holidays back in 1934.
And now, the winners!
Kate I of Inspired in British Columbia
Miss Giny of Au Pays des Merveilles in Paris
Caro of Sodapop Design in Germany
and Jen of Frau Zinnie in Connecticut
Congratulations! Caro and Jen both chose Roue de Paris as their free print from the new shop. I’m delighted as it’s one of David’s images. Giny chose La Vie Est Belle and Kate chose The Blue Door.
I’m kind of chuffed, too, that Miss Giny, who is a photographer who LIVES in PARIS, mind you, likes my Paris calendar. :)

Hope you all have a happy weekend and thank you again for playing along. We should do it again, yes?

New Calendars and a Giveaway

Hello, my friends, and Happy September. We mark a gradual change in the year, don’t we, no matter which hemisphere we are in. I’m so glad you enjoyed tea at Ladurée! I promised a surprise or two and here you go. First, a peek at four of my new 2012 calendars, which you were so helpful in working out. And then, to thank you, my first ever giveaway, just for you.

And now, to celebrate releasing the calendars and the opening of our new shop, I’m happy to announce I’m giving away one each of the new calendars PLUS an 8 x 12 Paris print from the new shop. So, each of the four calendar winners will receive a Paris print as well. (Winners will be chosen randomly and announced next Friday and you can enter no matter where you live.)
I’ve tried to keep this simple and fun to thank you for coming here. I hope it is! To enter:
1. Please visit our shop and choose which Paris print you’d like.
2. Leave me a comment here and tell me which one you chose. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you win.
That’s it! I don’t want to require you to become a follower or anything as I would only want you to follow along on this journey if you really want to. But I will say IF you win and you ARE a follower, there will be an extra something for you from my goodies brought from Paris. :)
Wishing you a memorable weekend filled with laughter and day dreams. No matter what is happening in our lives, there is always room for those, isn’t there?
