Another Favorite Shop and a Winner

As I go about the house, cleaning closets, donating or tossing things

that I no longer need or want, I think about how I want to decorate the home,

the home that we are planning to build, the downsized home.

I want a lighter feel for the house as it will be smaller. 1,500 square feet smaller.

It seems like I have been gravitating to a simpler style of furnishings.

While visiting my friend JoAnn in St. Simon’s Island, she took me to a great shop.

Another favorite shop, that I will add to my growing list.

Paris in Bloom, A Giveaway

I shall never forget my wonderful trip to the beautiful country of France.

I traveled there for the very first time,

with friends and bloggers for an exciting adventure, of sightseeing, 

shopping the Brocantes and many fabulous shops, that were mainly in the Normandy area.

I so hope to return soon, to that country of such beauty and grace.

In the meantime,  I enjoy the picturesque countryside and cities

from books such as the one I am giving away to one of my readers!

I was introduced to this book by Lidy of French Garden House.

I ordered the book and loved it, and now I want to share one with you.
