Petite French Bohemian Giveaway

From my shop... A lovely find, don't you think?

Busy days here at My Petite Maison

Lots to say, just not a lot of time to say it.

Have that special project going on I mentioned to you.

So glad it's cooled off in California,
  I'm able to get around,
not break a sweat just poking my nose outdoors!

Since I'm busy the next several days...

Wanted to ask...
What's on your wish list?

Is it bohemian, is it French? 

Is it both... that would be 
wonderful, non?
A petite wish list, 
one that could easily be shipped...

Maybe a few small items?

I'm heading to Alameda this weekend (Antiques by the Bay),
was just at Petaluma Antiques Fair (yes, I still have photos to share
from Summer Cottage Antiques!)

I know I could tuck a few things together
and ship them off to someone out there

I think it would be fun, a real surprise...
You don't know what it will be, I don't know either
but I will be happy to try to antique hunt for some goodies
just for you from My Petite Maison!

That I have time for any day

Antique French Clock Face from my store

Also, my blog/store has been featured
at Become Inc's site as one of their
Best of the Web choices for October
in home décor.

They contacted me after following my blog
for several months and I accepted the petite feature
with them and I'm thrilled to bits & pieces!

Always a great thing meeting new people,
experiencing new things and being open to all
things wonderful... don't you think?

From my store ~ French enameled trivet

Hello Tracie... congratulations on having your blog featured! Yours truly is one of the most beautiful decorating blogs there is, and you are such a beautiful, caring soul...

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh wow!! A wish list! I could do a post on that!! I love all things white and rusty {btw...I have those little spice jars from PB, too!!}, like your trivet. I love old jewelry and coins and buttons and fun things to play with. The list could go on forever!! I thank you so much for having this sweet giveaway!

Have a wonderful weekend at your festival. I envy your beautiful year round good weather!


Lynnae said...

Good luck on your trip. If some extra little thing were on my wish would definitely be bohemian, romantic, and girly above all else. How fun is that?!

Maria Luiza said...

Y love your blog! Especiamente a moldura antiga com o anjo. Tudo no seu blog me encanta. Sou sua seguidora, mas não sei inglês por isso não faço comentários, OK?

Pansy Cottage Girl said...

That's a fun idea for a giveaway! Something I would love to have and havent seen much of are small clock faces. I dont know if that falls into either category? But surprises are always fun too!

Connie said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS, sweetpea!!!!

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

I love items that I can create with such as old lace, photographs, bits of jewelry, postcards, keys, are some of the items on my list.


trash talk said...

Congratulations! It makes me so happy to see someone doing what they love and it loving them back.
My first wish would be to go to Alameda with you, but that's not going to happen any time my second wish is that you find Tim (Blue Canoe, if he is set up) and give him a hug from me. I missed him last weekend at Warrenton and I was heartsick.
Have tons of fun shopping!

mommyof3 said...

I wish for a beautiful sonoma county weekend just like today was!

Sheilla ~ Style de Bohême said...

Congrats on being featured! Have a great time shopping...that's always been my favorite sport! As for a wish list, what a Pandora's box! I'd love a small Eiffel tower statuette, or perhaps a tiny crown or tiara...or maybe an old French feedsack that I could work into a project...or then again, anything white, architectural, chippy, rusty, or crusty always catches my eye...or maybe something related to a beat-up old alarm clock or vintage clock face....but...I also love surprises...hmmm....I told you this was a Pandora's box, LOL! It's so kind of you to do this giveaway, and I'm positive the winner will be absolutely thrilled with whatever treasure you happen to discover! Can't help but hope that it's me! Warm regards, Sheilla

Megan Chamberlain said...

I love the amazing picture frame at the start of your post. Wish I could go shopping with you, it looks so wonderful. I love old lace, flowers, buttons, jewellery bits, so many things.

Sweet Old Vintage said...

Congrats... my wish list is not long... I love tucking touches of french in vignettes if I can find or create some objects.... My big wish is for a crystla chandelier of which I have been hunting for some time now... I feel no need for a big list... The little things make me happy enough... Blessings...

A Cottage Muse said...

Have a wonderful weekend antiquing Tracie!
Thanks for your generous giveaway ~ bohemian & french sounds fabulous :-)

she dreams big! said...

Always on my wish list is finding great, inspiring blogs (like your's!) and getting comments from friendly bloggers! But, if you really want to know what I have been hunting for and never finding is a seltzer bottle. I think they are French? Wouldn't it be great if the top comes off and it could be filled with soap? And I'm always on the look out for bling of any kind! You have fun shopping now, ya hear!


Hi Tracie!! Oh sweets..congratulations on having your blog featured!! How cool would that be! And your blog deserves it...I love it:)
I hope you have a marvelous time at the festival..I wanna go! lol

Congrats on your blog being featured ...If I had a wish list it might be scraps of lace and pretty old glass buttons. I just finished a new duvet cover with cream and cranberry toile. I am looking for little scraps of this and that for Pillows to decorate the bed with.


Alaina said...

I only have a few things that I would just love to find at a flea market. A white Sweedish clock. A chippy white table for my dinning room. Two large white urns for my porch. You have such beautiful pictures.

Tiedupmemories said...

Congratulations on your blog feature!! Your giveaway sounds so lovely! I love all things old so I would be pleased to win anything! Happy Sunday!

Kathleen Grace said...

I'm not picky, I love everything you find! Have fun at the Flea and congratulations on your feature:>)

BailiwickStudio said...

Whenever I go to a flea market my wish list inclues vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, bits of metalwork, french linens, and there's always room for a surprise or two - the little somethings that catch my eye that I never knew I needed.

Congratulations on your store being featured! It's a lovely place to visit.


Heaven's Walk - said...

Hi Tracie! Thank you for offering this giveaway! So sweet! Congrats on your feature, too. How exciting for you! And you get to go shopping!! Yay! My wish list...?

Marie said...

How sweet Tracie! A bit of french, a bit of bohemian, any will do. Although, I'm really lovin' the french antique face clock you got there. Have a fantastic time at the flea market!

Roberta said...

Ha Tracie! When I think 'Bohemian French' I think of Johnny Depp but since you won't be picking him up for a song, I'm loving Rosary Beads at the moment. MWAH! Roberta

Fete et Fleur said...

I would have you pick for me. I hope all is well dear, Tracie. Life here is a bit crazy.

Congratulations on being featured. It is so very beautiful here. I always feel so embraced. Thank you!


CottageRose said...

Hi, Tracie!! Anything French.

Abby's Paperie Garden said...

My ultimate wish would be to have my own boutique some day though I must wait until retirement or winning the lottery:) Thanks so much for your generous giveaway.


Cheryl ~ Casual Cottage Chic said...

Oh, you KNOW I would LOVE anything from your darling shop...but I am very fond of clock faces at this time. Am on the hunt for several large faces to decorate a wall. But little ones are fun too...arranged in a frame. Love your finds at Alameda. I will be on the search Friday at Matilda's Mouse show. Perhaps Corey Amara will hop over to your area while she is in No. Calif visiting this month. Cheers, Ms. CCC

Faded Charm said...

Anything French would be wonderful. I've been wanting to get down to that Flea Market, but never finding the time to be a way from my family.:(

You are too kind.

Take care,


Curtains In My Tree said...

Good Luck at the flea market and good luck to me hoping to win anything that belonged to you.

I love the whole French thing . I want to come out to California for a great flea market.


Shabbby and Frills said...

On my wish list are so many things.
I wish for the energy to do the projects I have on my wish list.
When I go Treasure Hunting I wish to find something that I dearly love that no one else cares about. I wish for the Old World Charm to be present in my home and friends and family feel the spirit of "Welcome
we are happy you are here".
Your Blog is beautiful, Thank You for the lovely things you share

Alicia ~ time worn style said...

oh Tracie, a wish list? My biggest wish would be to have my beautiful cavalier spaniel Genevieve back with me but she is running through the fields at the Rainbow bridge now so I will have to be patient before I see her again one day. That is my biggest wish, BUT I am always wishing for that old french treasure!
