Joyeux Noel 2008

This is a vintage card from the 30s or 40s that I found at the Marché aux Puces de Vanves. At first glance there appeared to be no inscription inside. But when I unfolded the card, in the interior was a lengthy love letter penned by a forlorn Frenchman to his future bride. So sweet.

I hope this Christmas, wherever you are in the world -- whether you have the gleaming snow or not -- brings as much cheer as that little bird and as much warmth as the yellow light shining from the cottage.

Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année, y'all!

What a wonderful find. I love Marché aux Puces de Vanves and make sure to include it in every visit to Paris. I went a week ago last Saturday and I can tell you it was COLD. And, as usual, my favorite finds were well out of reach Euro-wise (I am always amazed at the price of some of the trinkets) ...yet I managed to find a few treasures :-) I'll be posting some pics from there soon.

Joyeux Noël to you to, and I hope Père Noël finds you wherever you are. Yes Santa Claus, there is a Virginia.

Jay: touche'! That line got a round of laughter at Christmas Eve gathering tonight (with full crdit to you).

I hope everyone gets happy visists from Pere Noel.

And to all: One thing I miss most is the oysters at Christmas in Paris.

It's not only the oysters, but the salty kisses can't be beat.
Merry Christmas with love,
