L'avènement de Noël: № 13



Giveaway winners, pretty inspiration and fun links.

Good morning! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend—full of festivities, planning, and memories... and most necessary, a little relaxation. My weekend was packed with both work and fun—my favorite mix of all. And, as the new week begins, I grow more and more excited for Christmas to arrive... which brings me to great news, I am happy to announce the two winners for the lovely Votre Vu giveaways! The winners are: Brianne Perkins (01 giveaway) and Teresa at Splendid Sass (giveaway 02) Congratulations, ladies! I know that you will greatly enjoy their products, and we will be in touch soon with the details... and for those who sent their address to receive a complimentary sample, enjoy!







As for the inspiration for today—an array of lovely ideas, both large and small for your home. I believe image 02 is my most favorite for ideas of all. And, as per tradition, some links for your Monday: to go along with Saturday's rose post, a divine rose martini / the perfect Christmas movie to watch while baking, wrapping, or perhaps even ironing *wink* / beautiful dark and rustic inspiration / for him: hilarious moustache cufflinks + for her: a beautiful compact fragrance / beautiful photo and products for a lovely gift for the lady in your life that appreciates all things pretty / the absence of technology results in solitude and rest / an incredible sequin-embroidered clutch / + lastly, classic pajamas...

  2. This is yet another great L'avènement de Noël post. I really love them all. How cute is that birdcage filled with christmas ball's! All the decorating made me remember the cutest French boutique in Gordes that I visited last year. Lovely, lovely memories :)

  5. :) :) love actually is one of my favourite xmas movies ever... it's just so cute!

    also, i've always liked the idea of bringing trees into a home. the huge candle-holders are beautiful, maybe without candles even more so.

    a very nice week to you, Sarah!

    hugs,
