Happy New Year everyone!
Here is to another year of inspiration and sharing!
These French Friday Giveaways
are for you!!


  1. If I were to win one of these precious tintape journals, I would have to let you decide since they are both a wonderment! I have ordered from you before and received one of your very small journals and love it. This time, I have a friend who is a Frankophile and it would be a gift for her. I am going for a knee replacement next week and this friend has done so much for me already that I want to repay her with a gift of some precious French items.

    Thank you so much Rhonda for giving these precious books.
