Christmas at home in Brazil

While many of my online friends are preparing to fly back to North America for family filled holidays (yeah!), Luiz and I are settling in for another summer holiday season with Santa in Bermuda shorts and sunglasses.  It took some getting used to at first, but with a little encouragement I have come to enjoy beach time over snow shoveling.

Feeling the Christmas vibe when it is 90 degrees outside is a little easier when you have one of Santa’s elves living with you.  Luiz is so cute, he just needs a pointy, green, felt hat.  He has been spending his days in the workshop creating beautiful holiday decorations.

Luiz makes them and his mother sells them.  They are a perfect team.  Sometimes Zozó gets a custom order from a friend and Luiz makes it happen.

This year’s holiday creations have been selling faster than fresh roasted chestnuts at the Ice Rink in Rockefeller Center.  It’s been very fun and rewarding here at Flor de Luiz.

Safe travels to my friends, we’ll hold down the fort until you return. 

Anybody looking for a last minute gift for the folks back home?
