a give-away!





Wow, can you believe it is nearly February??? I honestly don't know where the time goes. Things have been so busy here on the farm - what with the nice weather and outdoor clean-up, baking, sewing, and dressing up Mabel, the days seem to fly by. Before I know it, April will be here, as will my trip to FRANCE which I am giddy with excitement over. I have been trying to study my french as much as possible but again, my free hours are few and far between. Maybe I need to begin a date-day with myself and book an hour in here and there to go to my favorite coffee shop to study...

In honor of my upcoming travel to one of my favorite places on the planet, I am doing a GIVE-AWAY!!! My sweet friend Teresa Sheeley has donated two of her FABULOUS tea-stained frenchy tea towels to one very lucky follower. I received mine last week and they truly are wonderful. I know you will LOVE them~ Have a peek at her Etsy site - she has a number of lovely things~

If you want to be entered into the draw simply leave a comment. If you are a follower, please note that in your comment and I will enter you twice~ I will be doing the draw on Saturday, January 30th.

Bonne chance mes amies!
bisous~

P.S. I started out trying to write the whole thing in French, but with my horrible memory, having taken French WAY too many years ago, and without the help of my "French" major daughter, it was ne comprends pas! ;)

Bonnie said...

My first trip to Paris was in March/April 2004. Fell in LOVE...with the city (not a man!) I was single during that visit. I visited again in November 2009 - just two months ago. Not only was I no longer single, but I was getting married there! :)

I will post about my Paris wedding someday soon, so keep checking my blog!

Oh, and I'd love to be entered for the lovely tea towels!
