for the present


There is something special about bestowing and bearing gifts.
The pleasure of the hunt and finding the perfect gift is truly the best part.
I think LEB would love this chic estate tray.
For my thrifty blog friends who moved to London.

I bet Summer is a verb would wax poetic if this little bangle
were stuffed in her stocking.

or better yet, an original pve work of art.
Giving gifts that last all year long...
like a flag or a bunting or an everlasting bouquet.

or a Diane James HOME candle to light and fill the air with a heady scent!
Happy giving, bestowing and scouting for the perfect present!
I am happily offering "pve design" gift certificates toward artwork for 2011!

Patricia - you added the perfect touch to our candle and we're thrilled you were part of the creation! Love that Charlotte Moss bangle - yet another thing to add to my growing list for Santa! Happy weekend!

Wonderful gifts!

Dear Santa,
I would like this fab bangle and a PVE drawing of my adorable Jack Russell Terrier. I have been most nice (one do has naughty moments).

I adore your illustration of the present giving. You've inspired me to put more effort into wrapping this year.

That's your work on the Diane James candle box? So beautiful! The hunt for the perfect gift is one of my favorite parts of the holidays -- and my list is almost, but not quite, finished off. Have a beautiful weekend.

I can think of no better gift to give or receive than an original work of art by you!

You continue to amaze and inspire with each and every illustration!

Love that touch of mistletoe!!!

I DO ALSO ENJOY GIVING THE PERFECT GIFT TO THAT PERFECT SOMEONE.
The hunt is a real thrilling adventure.

It is so much more fun to give than receive. All of the joys of shopping without having to worry about where to put the stuff. Plus the look on the receivers face when they open the perfect gift - priceless!

I'm still bummed I didn't win the PVE giveaway at Domestic Ease! That definitely would have made my Christmas!

There is true joy in giving the perfect gift (and the hunt to find it!)

I think your friends will be thrilled with the gifts you have picked out.

I LOVE this illustration. I know, I know I say this with each one, but I do LOVE this one (and all of them). I like how the gent is covering his eyes and peeking through his fingers. Too cute!

A wonderful idea to give a PVE gift- it is a memorable one indeed. I love my PVE pear painting I purchased this year. It was a gift to myself! xo

Hill House Ramblings said...

Your illustrations are so beautiful! Yes, yes...I would love one! (And I'll take the C.M. bangle too!) Despite what I just said, I enjoy searching for the perfect gift. Giving is what makes this time of year so much fun!
