Chic Noel

 A gift from Spain has arrived! I purchased a homemade advent calendar with a special friend in mind. You may remember my friend N and her words of support about learning the Croatian language? 

Well this gift is perfect because the artist, Lala is from France and when I requested the messages to be written in French for my friend she said not a problem. " ..each little box contains a quote to read to your loved ones, each day to gradually get in a sweet Christmas mood." ~Lala
 She is very talented in both her photography and artwork so if you happen to be in Granada,Spain this weekend you should check out her Paperie Show!

 two photos courtesy of Lala you can see more photos on her lovely blog, A castle in Spain here and her Etsy shop here.
Thank you Lala! your chic Noel card is sitting on my desk, I love it!


  1. What a beautiful gesture and a beautiful gift. I love the thoughtful gift. It says someone has put time and effort into it!
    ps I did not have a recipe for cheese cake on the blog. I still love and remember the American frozen one from the store with strawberries on top. Can not top that!

  2. Dear Elisa,
    again i'm so glad the package reached you safely and hope your friend will enjoy it and the quotes...
