Barb, of The French Elements blog, had a giveaway last week. Now, Barb is a special blogging friend who is just an amazing woman in so many ways. She is a kindred spirit and never fails to lift me up with such encouraging words in her comments here. Along with her blog, she has a business called "The French Elements" where she offers all sorts of beautiful, French and Old World-inspired treasures. If you haven't visted her before, then you must go now!
She has had several giveaways before which I have entered and not won. In fact, it is rare that I win anything. So, imagine my glee to find that I had won her latest giveaway. And this (below) was what I found waiting on my front porch.
Of course, I couldn't wait to see what was inside!
It was packaged beautifully and well-padded so there would be no shifting around during shipping.
And as any good Francophile would do, she wrapped the boxes in this scrumptious toile tissue paper. Lovely!
The first thing I opened were these (above) royal magnets! I love magnets and these are just too pretty with crowns on a French blue background.
The next box I opened contained this wonderful (above) Precision Chanel facial scrub. I can't wait to try that!
Then I opened the third package (below) and found another Precision Chanel product, a facial masque. (I know we spell it mask, but don't you just like masque better?)
And then there was this beautifully embroidered pillow with a golden key. I know where that one is going... I have a special spot already picked out for it... in my art room, of course!
All the loot (below).
Thank you, thank you, Barb!! You are the best!!
