My newest favorites just came in the mail from The French Garden House on-line store. Have you been there?  I just had so much fun scrolling through all of the beautiful treasures they have. Then, I had even more fun when the treasures I ordered arrived. Just look at the presentation. I felt like I was unwrapping gifts instead of purchases.

And I did get some gifts! See their cute little “Merci” tea cup card, and look at the bag of Lemon Mango tea -- Can’t wait to try that.

tea bag etc OOOO LA LA, am I getting Frenchified or what? (No I didn’t say “french fried” although it is hot enough in Arkansas for me to feel like a French fry!)
I’ll be using the random generator to pick a winner of my giveaway on Monday.  A comment on this post will give you a (or another) chance to win the ice cream party for two prize.

Know what you mean about "French Fried" . :-D I have not gone out any more than I have to these days, but I can still handle it better than the bitter cold Winter. I cool down faster than warm up.

Ooooh la la is right! Lidy has some of the coolest stuff a la Francais! I love that little red bowl. Please put my name in the running for your give-away, ok? I would love to win those fantabulous prizes. I have been running around like a chicken w/my head cut off! We were in Milwaukee for the Friday weddding of our god-daughter. Mr. S even danced at the reception!! Now that is an improvement for him. He's still gimpy, but hey- he moved around the dance floor! I'll try to get back again soon to catch up on everything I've missed you posting lately. AAAGGHHH- why am I so behind in everything??!!
big hugs, Sue

Hi Laurie, I have had your blog in my sidebar since the beginning, and check in every time you post. I thought I would join in this time with a link to my post.

You bought some great things, my favourite would be the little mug with the children and duck. My mother would have loved that, it so reminds me of the Campbells soup kids she collected. Thanks for the chance.

I would also love to win your ice cream for two giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.
