Mimi firstly I hope you are well and thank you for such a beautiful and generous giveaway. Secondly you have been on my mind this weekend as we have just returned from a wonderful weekend to Entraygues in the Averyon where our friends have launched a Chambre D'Hotel and Salon de The as well as an interiors store to die for! I wondered if I may e-mail their details to you, possibly to feature in a future edition of your wonderful online magazine? Thanks you so much bisous Kitty xxx

Bonjour Mimi!!

what a fabulous giveaway! I came here to tell you about a new french cookbook I picked up the university bookstore ( a bargain price of 15$ from the usual 35$) and I adore it. French cooking is so much fun. Simple and delectable flavors!! I just posted a small breakfast but will follow with MANY MANY more :)

Anyways I find you are hosting a fabulous giveaway too. I like the 'jewel' themed compact. Reminds me of a fairytale. I write so many of them :)

Bye bye and have a greatt week!

Best wishes to you both on your new venture!

Those powder compacts are divine. I've always wanted to do an art piece using compacts and insert beautiful little pen and ink drawings inside.
Your blog is very pretty. I too have a deeply romantic connection to Paris - honeymooned there - and will be back.
