Merry Christmas to you and all the family. I have loved following your blog this year and look forward to your lovely photography in 2014.

Barbara Chester December 23, 2013 - 12:39 pm

Ooh, your dogs are just gorgeous and incredibly clever too. Do they use telepathy or just the mumbly yapping type of communication? Seriously, thank you for all your beautiful photography this year. It is certainly a tonic. I hope you and yours have a wonderful loving Christmas and New Year and here’s to 2014. Cheers !

Lynne December 23, 2013 - 12:43 pm

Everyone home for Christmas!
No wonder Gibson and Ghetto are feeling so cozy and happy! Enjoy the time with family and dearest friends! Merry Christmas to all under the roof of your beautiful French Country Home!

Pamela December 23, 2013 - 12:47 pm

And…this is the icing on the cake! This is the best Xmas card I have see this year! I have a feeling you could sell these as cards in your shop! Thank you spreading such good cheer throughout the year! Wishing you and yours the merriest and the brightest Xmas ever…Joyeaux Noel!

Trudye December 23, 2013 - 1:23 pm

Oops…Joyeux Noel !

Bonjour, Sharon, I just left Paris. I had been there for 5 weeks, finishing my degree in Patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu. I wanted to tell ou that I went to Au Bain Marie. What a gem!!! If I take people on a culinary tour of Paris next year, I will for sure include it. I spent many, many Euros everyone there was beyond nice. Thank you for letting all your readers know about this place. They had these large Herend cups that are actually soup size (mocha cups?) that I collect but have not been able to find for years. I was so excited and bought four.
Merry Christmas and more pics of those cutie pie dogs, please !

Joyeux et Heureux Noël à vous Sharon, à votre époux et à tous ceux qui vous aiment et que vous aimez.
Merci pour tous les superbes rendez-vous que vous nous proposez sur la toile.
Belle continuation.
Avec toute mon amitié,

A perfect holiday greeting. Love that Gibson and Ghetto got into the act. Thanks for all the beauty and inspiration you bring into our lives, Sharon. And to Gibson and especially Ghetto, thanks for the laughs and smiles.

Warm wishes for a Merry Christmas! XOXO

Sharon, I had already wished you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, but when you said we are the jam on your croissant, well that is the best thing you could have said.

I have enjoyed everything French and you have made me feel a part of it this year.

Blessings to you and your family.

Dear Sharon,

I am one of your ‘quiet’ readers and your blog has been/ is certainly a great source of inspiration for me/us over the course of the past year.
Thank you for letting us take part of your life, dreams, thoughts and discoveries.

Have a wonderful Christmas time with your family and loved ones – all the best for 2014!

Warm regards,
Anja from Trouvaille en Haute Marne

How can one address something that hasn’t already been commented on above?
Ditto to everything. My pets have always been a very big part of Christmas but, now this Christmas I am also thinking of Gibson and Ghetto with that cute red gingham stocking that Ghetto couldn’t wait to peek into!

Enjoy your family at Christmas as I hope all of your commenters are doing as well!
I will be waiting like the rest for the next installment of your holiday tale!

Coming from Eugene, Oregon in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S.A.
