They’ve begun demolition on the house next door, so amid the noise of jackhammers, I’m dreaming of the few days we’ll soon be spending in the French countryside.
French Country Charm At Your Doorstep
In the meantime, I love having little things around our home that remind me of France, and the charm and slower pace of French country life. I’d really been looking forward to the May My Stylish French Box, as the theme is “blue and white.” I love that color combination, finding it both fresh and tranquil. (Someday I’d love to re-do our decor to incorporate more blue and white.)
It’s always such a pleasure to open and discover what Sharon has included in these boxes. The first things you notice are how beautifully arranged they are, and the wonderful fragrance when you lift the lid.
This time it’s courtesy of a lovely Fragonard candle. It’s in a porcelain pot with a cameo lid, which can be re-used once the candle is finished. That’s an antique embroidered linen napkin to the right.
There’s a gorgeous Jacquard stole from Létol. That intricate pattern is woven, not printed. It’s a beautiful piece, 100% cotton (so not too heavy) and environmentally friendly.
There’s a pretty gold necklace with blue Swarovski pendant from Bohm Paris…
Some lovely pouchettes from Le Pompon…
There’s also a notebook and weekly scheduler (which I plan to put to good use!) from Constance Desanti Papeterie. The pretty mug at the bottom right (and in the top photo) is from Gien, part of their Bluebird collection. And the little sachet is an extra gift for being an annual subscriber.
These boxes make wonderful gifts for a birthday, housewarming, or any special occasion. Sharon is currently taking orders for the August box. These boxes usually sell out, so don’t miss out.
