Merry Christmas !

 Yesterday I caught myself thinking that I never worry about the size of my Christmas tree any more simply because I know that for my daughter it is still 30ft. tall :-)  Christmas is almost here and I want to wish all of you , my beautiful, kind friends, peace and prosperity, charity in the heart, love, generosity of spirit, health and hope.:-)
 "We hear the beating of wings over Bethlehem and a light that is not of the sun or of the stars shines in the midnight sky. Let the beauty of the story take away all narrowness, all thought of formal creeds. Let it be remembered as a story that has happened again and again, to men of many different races, that has been expressed through many religions, that has been called by many different names. Time and space and language lay no limitations upon human brotherhood." ~New York Times, 25 December 1937, quoted in Quotations for Special Occasions by Maud van Buren, 1938, published by The H.W. Wilson Company, New York 
    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! :-)

Анечка! Спасибо за поздравления!
Жду праздника с верой и надеждой на лучшее для нашей страны (простите, если в словах слышится пафос).
Шлю вам из Минска лучшие пожелания!

I really like this quote's classical / universal vibrancy, the way these altruistic words don't fail to sound like Christmas' ideal metaphor . . .
ps: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you too Dear Anya !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine

Dearest Anya,
Thank you for the beautiful images and wonderful quote! When you have the time, please peek into The Tearoom (after 8 tonight). There is a tea party there for Christmas Eve, but I wanted to make sure you got to see it! Don't worry if you can't see it tonight, I know you are busy with all the preparations and festivities for your family!

Thank you again for the super sweet gift (no pun intended!).

Merry Christmas Hugs to you!

Merry Christmas doll. When you have children I feel like it brings all the magic back to the holiday! My little girl is almost 2 and watching her eyes light up make it that much more magical.

Hello Anya,
Could not let this year's ending without greeting friends.
Yes, I have been away for four months. Just returned posting today. I did stopped by several times for a quick cup of hot chocolat with your lovely dolls...(They didn't tell you!- so, naughty of them) Very beautiful and artistic hat collection...all of them. Please continue with your god given talent. Fantastic modern interpretation of vittorian sleeping nite caps (Header). Glad to hear also things went well in Paris. Please stop by to visit us.

Until then on behalf of Love Accents Atelier, may all the blessings of this blissful season shine upon you. Wishing you all the love, laughter and happiness in the world.
With joy,
Kirsten and Prince Tchaikovsky

Dear Anya,
I hope you has an amazing Christmas. I had an eventful month and hence no posts. My dad is in a hospital, so Christmas was very subdued. But it was special because he is still with us. Every day, I hope he will survive another day. Every day, I hope for a miracle.
Hopefully, he will be better next year.

My sweet Anya,

As 2010 comes to a close, I want to thank you for all the love you have shown me. You have been an inspiration, your words and work have effected my life, your emails and encouragement have given both Eric and me strength through times of uncertainty, your understanding, and the story of your own path to accomplishment accompanied by your true passion for the beauty of your craft, have forever enriched my life.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your friend and biggest fan. :):):)
