A Beautiful Year

"And now we welcome the
New Year, full of things that
have never been." 
              ~Rainer Maria Rilke

   The New Year is almost upon us and as I look back I see so many blessings in 2016! Thankyou so much for your friendships! Your encouragement means so much to me and feeds my desire to keep being creative and find inspiration in the everyday. I hope that 2017 brings you all happiness! Here is a look back at 2016 with Jennelise Rose...

Almost Christmas

"For centuries men have kept
an appointment with Christmas.
Christmas means fellowship,
feasting, giving and receiving,
a time of good cheer, home." 
                  ~W. J. Tucker

   It's almost Christmas and I can't wait for the festivities to begin! The anticipation is half the fun though and sitting around the Christmas tree with the lights twinkling and that familiar magical feeling of childhood lingering in the air is perhaps more special to me than anything else. I've gone to extra lengths this year to make sure that all of my gifts are wrapped as beautifully as possible. Pink and gold are my colours of choice and I hope you enjoy these few pictures of the presents I have wrapped for my family. Wishing you a beautiful Christmas!

French Christmas

"Christmas is the day that
holds all time together." 
               ~Alexander Smith

   Less than two weeks till Christmas! I am caught up in the busy flurry and finally feeling a little better. Thankyou so much for all of your get well wishes! This year my Christmas decorations are very pastel. The tree is cream, blush, and pale gold and there are touches of blush pink everywhere. The pictures for today are of my family room decorations including my tree. I also wanted to share a spectacular vintage find from back in the Fall - the most beautiful French cabinet! I literally stopped breathing when I saw it in a consignment shop in September. I have filled it with a few of my favourite limoges pieces. I hope you are all enjoying the season!

Christmas in My Studio

"How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?"
                           ~Dr. Seuss

   I am home sick and feeling the frustration of watching time tick by! I can't wait to be well and able to do December-y things again! While we are all waiting for that to happen though here are a few pictures of my studio decked out for Christmas. I found a very pretty vintage style silver tinsel tree which I have decorated with my small collection of pink ornaments. I love it! My stockings are hung with care and there are pretty 'presents' under my tree. Even my Pottery Barn kitty and little fluffy reindeer (who desperately needed some bling and I happily obliged) have their own little pink tree to sit by. My studio feels like a pink Christmas Wonderland! Are you all ready for Christmas?
