Hi everyone, I’m excited to be holding a new competition this month – it’s been a while since the last one! Lately I have been collaborating with some wonderful new businesses, and hope to bring you more giveaways on a regular basis. It’s a nice way to promote French-related products out there… and they’re fun!
So let’s see what you’ll receive should you win this beautiful “Escape to Provence” competition…
First of all, the kind people at Pan Macmillan Australia provided the beautiful coffee table book by Janelle McCulloch, called Provence and the Cote D’Azur. It retails for $49.95 and if you are looking for a book with beautiful photography of various regions in the South of France, this is it. Janelle also has an inspiring Instagram account: @janellemcculloch_author
I am also including this hand-poured candle made by me from our range of unique vintage tin candles. In a classic French pastilles tin, it contains 100% eco-soy wax, cotton wicks and is fragranced with popular Lime, Basil & Mandarin. You can read more about this candle here.
The perfect book to savour when you can sit with a coffee – or perhaps a glass of French rosé – and escape to Provence!
Provence and the Cote D’Azur takes you up cobbled village streets and explores larger cities, like Nice. I often re-read photography books like these, you never really tire of them. They are lovely to keep & collect and also to give as a gift – any Francophile would love this book!
Included in the giveaway are two more authentic French vintage items. A set of four fluted patisserie moulds, and a pure linen apron – monogrammed by hand on the front, with simple red stripes down either side. This is a half-apron that ties at the waist and is generous in size. It’s made from a gorgeous quality antique linen that has softened over time. Whoever in France made this piece is a wonderful seamstress!
And finally, all your French goodies will come carefully packed into a beautiful market basket from the Market Basket Co. The leather handles are just the right length for carrying the basket on your shoulder. This bag is so versatile to take shopping, to the park, or the beach.
The total retail value of the “Escape to Provence” competition is $219.95
