Noël 2015

Noël 2015 01Christmas for the French is very much like Thanksgiving for Americans.  It's a very family oriented event, and it often includes very specific dishes for their big meal.  While I see these foods in the grocery store every year, I'm not too sure what they do with them, as we've never been considered family to anybody and been invited to share.

Until this year.  We have now experienced our first French Christmas as guests in a French home, and I thought I'd share it with you.

Seasonal tea

Seasonal Tea 01Having celebrated a lovely Thanksgiving weekend which included family members, we jumped right into the Christmas season with a Ladies' Tea at church.  My part involved getting the church prettily decorated and then photographing the event, while Doc Leo continued to perform his magic on the sound board.

It did make a fun Saturday afternoon and a nice way to jumpstart the Season.

Scarf art

Scarf art 01I have an American friend who is currently living in Mexico.  Among all her other ventures, she has started doing sewing pattern designing.  In looking for testers for her newest project, she asked me if I would be interested.  Never having done such a thing before, I thought it could be rather fun.

While I'm fairly confident in my sewing abilities, neither Doc Leo nor I are particularly professional when it comes to modeling and photographing, but I needed to show off the product and explain how to use it.  Here are the results of our efforts, as well as various styling ideas I came up with.
