The Winners Of The French Essence Giveaway

Thank you all so much for being a part of the new French Essence giveaway. I am so happy to announce that I will be sending embroidered linen sheets to Virginia from Paris Through My Lens… to Katrina from Feathers and Cupcakes and to Kate Gumbley.

My favourite Annick Goutal fragrances are on their way to Teresa of Splendid Sass, Helen Tilston and Stacey of Quintessence… The Dipytique candles are for Patricia van Essche, Pamela Terry and Alexis Mc Naughton and the sweeties I will be sending to Shane, Lucienne, Francine, Trish, Sarah, Mary Jo, Andi, Laura Elizabeth and Rose.

Please wait to hear from me… I will be emailing later in the day for your postal addresses… and thank you to everyone who left such generous messages… I have been so touched by your response.

And this year… I promise… I am going to visit many more flea markets and have lots and lots of giveaways… Thank you for playing… xv

I love French Essence and store them up until I really have time to enjoy reading and indulging.
I wonder if you have ever done or thought of featuring the French art of la flânerie?

Gosh, how lovely! You’re going to give all of these lucky ducks a beautiful surprise when they see this. {And I’m especially tickled that dear Virginia will be receiving the linen. She will treasure it.}

Toutes mes sincères félicitations aux gagnants…
Mais en réalité nous avons tous gagné puisque nous avons la chance de connaître votre blog…

Hooray! I love the thought of these wonderful ladies being so…touched…for lack of a better word by your generosity! That they will have a bit of your world with them. Somehow I am especially tickled imagining Helen and Stacey leaving behind a trail of Annick Goutal in their wake… :)

Teresa @ Splendid Sass

Such a wonderful surprise to wake up and find that I was one of the lucky winners!
Thank you so much for your generosity.
I look forward to reading many more posts.

I love the picture of the soft linens layered with the embroidery peaking out. Only women could understand that a stack of linen could be romantic.

Bravo to the recipients of the generous gifts.

What a complete delight! A breath of fresh air! So much fun to tell other girls about and share, dream….. You are an inspiration to grab the ring on the carosel. If we could all do that, there would be alot more happy people in this world. It gives me joy everyday I open this little gift!

Thank you so very much!


What a wonderful treat for your readers. Congratulations to them all.
