Creating The December Paris letter

Creating the December Paris Christmas/Noël letter usually leads to tearing of hair and general consternation. This year was no different. Another folded letter for your mantle piece.
I knew I wanted to do something with Paris' KIOSQUES. Especially after seeing a folded paper advert card at an ephemera show.
I knew I wanted a snowy sky after seeing CHANEL No.5 Christmas gift box. But what sort of Parisians to place round the news stand? Contemporary? Old fashioned?
Looking through old pictures I spotted a tiny Father Christmas/Pere Noël. Eureka! Central casting calling.Ding-a-ling
Luckily I live near the wonderful PAPETERIE Marie-Tournelle, 5 rue de deux Ponts, Île St.Louis.
Oodles of Advent calendars and musical snowmen await. I cast that snowman and his cardinals in the Dec letter toute suite.
I brought home this 15" x 24" Advent calendar for inspiration.
Only the 3 carolers on the lower left made the cut. Anyone want a calendar? Come and get it.
No problem casting the red cardinals, not that I've ever seen one in Paris.
I've never seen a real snowman either. 'Bonhomme de neige' to you.
