My "Très Jolie" giveaway...



Okay...  so I was not going to post my giveaway for a couple of days...  but...  well...  just like I cannot ever keep a secret, I cannot wait to show you  what I am giving away!... sooo...  we'll start my giveaway right here and now!... I wanted to do something to say "Merci" to all of you who have followed along with me on my journey here at Idyllhours over the past almost four years... and a warm welcome to all of my new followers...  we all love everything French...  and I am blessed with a French family heritage and I have traced my family back to the 1600's in Soual, Tarn France...  sooo, I thought wouldn't it be fun if everything had a French flair?...  Oui!... sooo...  my giveaway includes all of the following...


First, these darling Advent vintage clothespins...  with vintage string and French script... you may remember I showed you a set I had bought myself a while back from Vintage Marketplace...  well, I love mine so, I ordered a second set for one of you!... also... a Heavenly shabby gorgeously tarnished vintage silver plated tray...the tray is not from France but was soo incredibly beautiful when I saw it in a little antiques shop I knew I wanted to include it as well...

 
A box of my favorite cookie ever...Petit écolier, made in France and très délicieux!...                


This stunning book "French Country Living"...  yep, I bought myself one as well...


Here's a little peek inside...


My giveaways have no rules...  just leave me a comment on this post... and be sure to visit my previous post where I first talked about my giveaway... (gee, was that just today???...  see, I get excited over things!)... and leave me a comment there as well for an extra chance to win...  anyone is welcome to enter, whether you have a blog or not... if you do not have a blog or website,   just BE SURE in your comment to leave me a way to reach you by email should your name be drawn...  also, I will ship anywhere in the world...  if my friends from around the world are kind enough to visit me and leave sweet comments, I could certainly ship these little gifts to them... you can enter up until midnight my time (Mountain Time) on Sunday, December 2nd... as always, I will have Jack drawing the winning name and will post it first thing Monday morning December 3rd...  that way, I can beat the holiday rush at the post office and mail these pretties right out to my lucky winner... bonne chance!...  Bisous...  Julie Marie

I was just thinking of how I'd love to have some...Oh How I've missed you all! I don't have everything perfectly back up and running BUT I do know what was causing troble for me...GOOGLE is trying very very hard to get me to open ALL MY things through them. They are basically FORCING me to change my email, etc to GMAIL, etc... I'm SO AFFRAID that if I change my email address MY BLOG will disapear FOR GOOD! Thank you so much for a chance to win your giveaway!!! Big Squishy Hugs to you!!!

Linda M said...

What lovely treasures to offer! I also love the clothespins though we used the other style when I was a child. And the lovely little silver-plated dish is just gorgeous. I so enjoy finding such lovely photographs on your blog - particularly your nature inspired photos - "your" tree and "your barn" and don't even get me started on "your" red rose photos - they are breathtaking!

Julie Marie- What a wonderful giveaway. I won't sign up because I have the book already and I hope someone wins it that will love it as much as I love my own. Blessings to you- xo Diana
ps. you are just like a kid with a secret and can't wait to tell it!;>)

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Wow, what a fabulous give a way. LOVE that book!! Just the cover makes me drool. Now....do you not think Tess should be the one to draw instead of Jack??? Oh, no, it is nothing against Jack, but we are a little partial to that sweet Tessy! Give her a sloppy sugar from Soph and me, and tell her I will be posting a pic of Soph and Santa really soon.

What a sweet and thoughtful giveaway; just like your blog. I have been reading for quite some time (aka "lurking" - but I don't like that word;-) The book looks just beautiful. I hope my email comes through when I post the comment; if not, let me know.
Best, Susan

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Julie, What a generous and lovely giveaway. I love those clothespins so much and the tray is divine. I bet that cookie is yummy and I can say, the book is fabulous as I also have one and love going over it again and again. It has been a huge inspiration in my home redesigns.

You are so generous to say thank you this way, but the thanks goes to you for sharing your heart and inspiration all through the year.
Love you sweet friend, Celestina Marie

Hi Julie Marie, Your beautiful blog and pictures always give me such a feeling of serenity and peace. The wonderful clothespins took me back to my childhood - all piled in a little clothespin bag hung on the clothes line! The French Country Living book and lovely silver tray would look perfect on my French coffee table (the majority of my furniture is French). I am sure whoever wins your treasures will enjoy them. I feel just to have discovered your blog is a treasure to me. Please give darling Tessy a hug for me. Hugs and Happy Holidays from Minnesota, Ruthie

Nathalie Gagnon said...

A kindred spirit. I too am collecting vintage ornaments...but have small children and a puppy so I think it will be best to display them in glass apothecary jars!! Merci for your draw!

I'm off to send you pics of my Miss K opening up her present.

Love you~Rebecca

Shirley said...

Hi Julie Marie, How fitting that I decided to read some of my friends blogs. They lit the first candle for advent at mass yesterday. It is truly starting to feel a little more like Christmas seeing how pretty the trees are decorated for my hubby and the other patients at the nursing home. I would truly like to enter your giveaway and I enjoyed reading your previous post. Hugs and Prayers Your Missouri Friend.
