the spirit of it
bonjour toute le monde! i’m just popping in to say hey and share some sparkly and inspiring shots i’ve been saving. truth is once the flood gates opened i started hoarding holiday images on my desktop. i’m staging an intervention to take a break in the day and post them. i’m still in florida where you can’t tell what season it is so i hope you enjoy these moments of cheer.
i love the shot above, one cause of the contrast and also cause it looks like she’s carrying a live evergreen. it got me thinking so i checked out ‘renting live trees’ on google. if you haven’t gotten yours yet, check this out. wikipedia says 30 million trees are cut each year. but you can actually rent one, have it delivered and picked up!
here’s one of many: care2.com/greenliving/a-truly-eco-friendly-christmas-tree.html
carla’s images come right to my inbox and this wintry scene had me longing for snow and the bliss of winter’s silence in the middle of a city. if you haven’t been to carla’s blog, head over for a giveaway of her fabulous book, paris tango.
truthfully i’m still in florida mode, getting my jollies from other people’s holiday inspiration.

good thing i don’t have to decorate cause i’m more like the above than below.
all my great ribbon is in the city do i’ll bust that out and get to work. this year i’m just using bows and tags, no paper or tape.
well ok well now i’ve officially entered the holiday zone with a love of all the schmaltz that goes with it. off to make some lists. sweet sugarplum dreams~
