Joyeux Noël

Joyeux Noël 

I want to wish each of you dear readers a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I pray it is full of joy (and yummy things ;-). I know for some, Christmas is a bittersweet time. I hope you can still find joy during this time.

We are having our Christmas early because hubby works on Christmas, so I will be taking the week off. I have not wrapped a thing and have lots of cooking to do.

Remember to look for the magic and little blessing all around you during this time of jubilation. For this is a time of love, giving, celebration xoxo

PS. I know I said my theme this year was not traditional French but I thought it would be fun to at lest have a little something French, so this is my cake plate of Eiffel Tower's. Also I still have more to share but it will have to wait until after Christmas!!

Hi Clarice!

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family! I hope the new year brings you much happiness and love!

I am still reading your book - I love it - life just caught up to me and so it's usually a page at a time! I will post about it when I'm finished, it's a wonderful book!

Lovely! Happy Christmas to you and yours.


Merry Christmas Claire!!! Hope its wonderful one for all of you. Sending you big happy holiday hugs.
PS. I sent my son to work out in the shop with his book shelf & peg board for his sister xmas gifts. He loves things like that. Two birds with one


Oh! Love your French themed photo so much. Merry Christmas to you, Clarice--you are one of the sweetest people on Earth and I'm so glad to know you. Blessings, Debra


Love the French cake plate. Also, your menu sounds amazing (of course). I was looking in Wren Bay for a recepe for my Christams meal. I'm doing a beef tenderloin & wanted a great side dish. Perhaps with mushrooms. Couldn't find anything for that, but found a couple sweets I will make. Any suggestions for something with beef? I hope you & your precious girls have a wonderful holiday. I wish for you a happy healthy 2011! Lisa

Happy happy Christmas, Clarice! Your "Little Paris Christmas" is so enchanting~
PS: I've been reading your book and am enjoying it so much! I look forward to the recipes at the end of each chapter. I'm taking it slow and savoring each chapter. It's kind of my end-of-the-day treat!


Merry CHRISTmas, Clarice!
Enjoy your time with your family and may each of you be blessed by the Reason for the Season!


Merry Christmas, Clarice!

Enjoy the time with your family.


Perfect Picture!
Oh, la, la!
