While I'm Away ~ Giveaway

While running down the stairwell today,
I had an idea
(it's alright, don't be scared, it's a good one)

It's my birthday month (yes month)
and I'm doing whatever I want (somewhat, that is ;)

I am so busy in stocking and creating for my website
Getting ready for spring... busy, busy, busy!

It's really fun being in the Maison
the month
of January
Just ask my husband!

Anyway...
I decided my blog should be having some fun
while I'm away~

Did you notice my new updated look?

Thanks to
Cathy at Avalon Rose Design

So to celebrate all the above, I'm having
a giveaway of beautiful French items


The lovely
Paris Patisseries (café table worthy book)

Believe me, it's gorgeous!

And to make your home smell beautiful too,
one of my favs

Cote Bastide Room Spray


And last but not least...

A set of eight travel sized tubes
of Juicy Tubes from Lanco
me

(this allows me to purchase one for you
and one for moi in my rule book
and we'll both look fab in our Juicy Tubes!)

Feel free to spread the word
on your blog (let me know
so I can throw your name in the hat again)


Button Designed by Avalon Rose Design

Just leave me a comment
Between January 8th ~ 18th


Happiness to You!

I've been meaning to leave you a comment for awhile, so don't think I'm doing it for the giveaway! In fact, you can leave me out of it. I just want to say that I LOVE LOVE your blog and the items you sell. I cannot wait for the day that I get back to work so I can start shopping again and I'm starting with your site! :) Thank you for sharing your ideas with us. You are a treasure and a friend. :)
