Hi everyone,
Happy Fall! Isn't it crazy that it will soon be Thanksgiving? Where does the time go? Growing up, my ,artist, parents were not traditional in any way, so we never knew how we would spend the Holidays, but we were certain that it wouldn't be like the Cleaver's! One thing that never changed in our home, however, was the lesson of gratitude and generosity - especially during the Holidays. Everyday was a day to "give thanks" my father would say. "Everything we have is a gift from God - Even the hard times!" I know now that this is true and I thank my father for his dedication to grace and his beautiful imagination --- Sometimes imagination was all my parents were serving on Thanksgiving!! We all have so much to give and be thankful for. As we gear up for the Holidays we should remind ourselves to be generous, kind, patient, and grateful. We have so many blessings so "share","share", "share", with the world. It's all about LOVE - Thats it!
Love to all of you,
Pearl
P.S. "I love you John .... It's a beautiful life."

Thank you for your kind words and reminder to be thankful and appreciate all that we have.

I also wanted to tell you that while I was in Paris last month I saw a woman with one of your lovely purses. I stopped her to compliment her and she confirmed it was one of yours and that she had bought it online. Even that Parisians are wearing your fashions!

Much Love - Ruthie

Pearl, have you been on an extended honeymoon? Hope you have for we have missed your blog. Sometimes we all have to be reminded to appreciate what we have and how lucky we really are. It's hard to remember that in this day and age we live in. Hope you are working on a new book for I have worn the other one out already! Til next time . . . .

Your post should make all of us reflect on all of our many blessings! Sometimes in this crazy, fast paced world we live in, it is easy to not take the time to be THANKFUL for family, friends and all that God has blessed us with! Cathy of "Girls Gone Junkin"

I couldn't agree more. Everyday is a gift that why it's called the present. Everyday I try to live with an attitude of gratitude for the many blessings in my life. Even though everyday I battle cancer and all the struggles that come along with the disease, I do know there's a reason for this illness in my life and that I can be an example to others and still be grateful in my daily life.<3

Beautiful words!

Did you see that comment? Paris! Woohoo. "...exceedingly abundant above all that we can ask or think."

Blessings... Polly

Hi Pearl,
You always amaze me. What a cool picture and great entry. Your posts always pick me up. I too was in france -- that's why I missed Marburger this time, but I will be there in the spring with bells on!
I'm "grateful" for you, your light and creativity.
Keep shining!!!!!
XOXOXOXO,
C.J.

Pearl,
I found you through Victoria Magazine years ago, and lost track until recently. I saw a lady in Aspen wearing your clothes and stopped her -- she gave me your card. Wow, I'm so grateful to find you again. I am too large for the beautiful clothing, but I MUST have a purse!!!!!! I didn't see many on the site?????
I will call you on Monday. You are awesome!!!!
Talk to you soon,

What could be more true than your post. As life has gotten tough on
many families, it brings us back to what is important: Health, family and love. So thanks for the reminder. Best of luck to you and your husband

I would like to be the most humble and "thankful" of God's children; for I am truly blessed. I am thankful for each friend I have come to know; even those such as you, Magnolia Pearl, who are an inspiration with you kind and loving wisdom.

Thank you for your reminder of patience and thanksgiving...it is so simple, yet worth hearing over and over again. If we all were kinder and loved one another more so much of the frustration of living would melt away. I commit to do my part everyday to make a difference.
Richest blessings for the creativity, inspiration, and kindness you have offered to me today. I LOVE your book and have poured over it many times...thanks!
Have a beautiful holiday season.
