Christmas at Chateau Mango, Vietnam


Christmas lights in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

From the bright lights of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
and our orange coloured home,  Chateau Mango...






We send our warmest wishes to you and yours...
for a wonderful holiday.


May your days and nights be merry and bright.


and filled with wonderful surprises.


When the time comes..
and you have a moment to rest.



From me to you...

I want to offer my deepest appreciation to you
for reading Collage of Life.  It's a crazy world we live in
and I know it can be complicated to follow along.
Today...'Chateau Mango' in Vietnam,  
my last post... 'Tahilla Farm' in the USA,
and then there is  'Windswept' in Australia.

You help me make sense of my world and for that
I am sincerely grateful. I only hope and pray
that in some small way, I can inspire in you, what
 you inspire in me.

Wishing you a...
Merry Christmas with warmest wishes 
for a very Happy New Year!

Jeanne :)

Note the colour...it is well suited!

Where do you put your feet up 
at the end of the day?

  2. A glowing tree inside and gorgeous blooms outside - what a place to live!

    Hope the rest of your time in Vietnam will be interesting and fun. I have so enjoyed seeing it in peaceful times. Its always had such negative connotations for me, despite the warm, friendly people i have met from there.

    Thanks for sharing your adventures. Merry Christmas!

  10. Jeanne...hello from Sussex (it's waterlogged)! Christmassy nevertheless...off out for a long country walk today followed by pub...typical English pursuit. I hope you've had a lovely time and I think of you often in the mango house. I have loved following along, no matter where on the globe you are! Lou x

    1. Hi Leslie..

      Many thanks for stopping by..I only wish we had a real Christmas tree!
      I bought it in Australia years ago, it was the closest I could get to the trees I remembered as a child.
      It has seen many Christmas days over the years, I am hoping it holds out until we can have a real tree again.
      Sending you best wishes for a Happy New Year...may it be filled with inspiration. :)

Can I just say....that I so enjoy what YOU have to say. Just a few words or a
few paragraphs, no matter. If you would like to write to me directly, I would love to hear from you... jeannecollageoflife@gmail.com
