Sometimes I’m not certain I can convey how much you mean to me, how you make me happy each day and, yes, how you’ve changed my life.
Our shared love of France and the conscious decision to bring a joie de vivre into our lives by treating others with kindness, surrounding ourselves with beauty, putting care and attention into the way we present ourselves to our families (and beyond), by preparing a meal and the table it is set upon with an eye to creating moments of pleasing calm and conversation. . .these are the ways we can orchestrate our lives and these are the ways we can make our days memorable and occasionally remarkable.
Joie de vivre encourages one to look at life as a collection of pleasurable experiences to be enjoyed and celebrated. As we head into the frenzy of the holidays and the unknown challenges of the new year, let us not forget la joie de vivre.
You bring me joy and I would like to thank you by giving you little gifts to show you my appreciation. How I wish I could make a mass Santa delivery to every one of you. Instead, I’ve collected four items: Earrings from Amy Holton Designs, a scarf from Halsbrook, Jessie Kanelos Weiner’s coloring book and my book, which I will sign and send to you from here, in the hope you will participate in a drawing.
I just started posting pictures on Instagram because I thought it would be a lovely way to capture vignettes and objects that appeal to me and that I can quickly share with you. Now, I would very much like to ask a favor of you.
Would you please, when you enter the gift giveaway, begin to follow me on Instagram (@tishjett), like the giveaway post, and tag two friends in one of the posts.
The winners will be chosen on New Year’s day.
From Amy Holton’s collection of creoles you may choose either 14k gold-fill or silver and from any of the stones with the exception of rubies, sapphires and emeralds. The scarf, a melange of modal, linen and silk, is 77 inches by 26 inches.
Again, and always, merci mille fois.
Good luck. XO
