No. 72: la guirlande de Noël


The French shopkeepers do a marvelous job of gussying up their storefronts for Noël, doing their best to make it the most wonderful time of the year. The decoration of choice is la guirlande. From the grand boulevards to the smallest alleys and passageways, garland is wrapped around doorframes, dangling from awnings and framing candle-lit windows.

It’s easy to recapture that childlike excitement and anticipation at Christmastime in France.

Enjoy the Christmas magic I’ve come across this week.

    This post and your previous one on bobbles are beautiful. I’ve always wanted to see Paris at Christmastime… you have provided the next best thing – thank you!
