Though we officially still have a few weeks of summer on the calendar, the Labor Day weekend has always felt like turning the corner into fall. These last few days of summer always feel particularly sweet, and we lean into those pleasant evenings that have begun to grow shorter. We’ve been dining al fresco on our back patio quite often, and extending our evening walks.
A gift of “summer in France”
The August box from My French Country Home (gifted) arrived a few days ago, and I couldn’t wait to dive in. These subscription gift boxes are like a little bit of France landing on my doorstep. Sharon Santoni of My French Country Home seeks out uniquely French items for these boxes, and keeps the contents a secret. So it’s always such fun to discover what’s inside.
The theme of the August box is “summer in France,” though the gifts inside are things I’ll use year-round.
That reversible canvas beach bag from Charvet Editions will also be handy for farmers’ market runs. I just love these 4-seasons dessert plates by Degrenne, which we’ll also use for appetizers and “small bites.”
And I can’t wait to use those gorgeous placemats and napkins from Beauvillé, and taste that lavender honey.
& something to share…
And now comes the best part…Sharon has very generously offered one of the August boxes to give away to one of you!
