Autumn has arrived and with it the time for our annual journey to the Southern Hemisphere to central Chile to visit family and friends. Once again, I am so, so lucky to stay a few days with my dear friend María Cecilia in her mountain sanctuary in the Andean foothills. The beauty and magic she has created here, and so generously shares, is breathtaking and transporting. This year, my timing was perfect to witness and capture her abundant roses at their peak. I have photographed rose gardens all over the world but, truly, none compares to hers.
Arches are covered and heavy with fragrant, perfect blooms.
Her home is a dream of serenity, beauty and stylish creativity.
Here is my dear friend, such a beautiful spirit, amongst her roses. One day soon, she will be leaving this property for a new adventure, a new creation – let’s all wish her so much love, joy and happiness.
My previous post from María Cecelia’s garden last year is here.
Thank you, as always, for your visits. I will be posting more this week from Chile, including the stunning coast and more of my friend’s amazing roses. You can also see so much more of María Cecilia’s home at her blog. I honestly can never thank her enough for all she shares with so many of us around the world. I am greatly privileged to know her.
p. s. I’m posting daily on Instagram, too, @georgiannalane. Hope to see you there!
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.
And, as always, I so appreciate you visiting. Wishing you a joyful week ahead.
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. :)
