Giveaway - French Market Sac and Goodies!




While shopping recently I found
this fun market bag 
which reminded me
of the lively markets I've visited in France.


I thought it would be perfect as a
GIVEAWAY
for you my wonderful followers.

I'm particularly grateful to my regular followers
who faithfully pop in and leave me a comment
each time I put up a new post.
You know who you are - thank you gals!!!

Tucked inside are some bits and bobs
one would find at a market...
 a french themed notebook
some gorgeous soap  
Great Barrier Island Bee Co hand cream
and....
of course something yummy to eat!



I will add more items over the next two weeks...

This is for followers of my blog - both old and new
so please leave me a comment
it's open to everyone - world wide.
Feel free to let your followers know too!


You have until Sunday 7th December to enter
and I will announce the winner on
Monday 8th December 2014
Bonne Chance!

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt


Shane

Hello Shane, what a lovely give away. I like when bloggers do nice things like this. I've given away ACEO's (art cards) from time to time. I always enjoy visiting your blog although I must admit I don't always leave a comment when you already have lots of them on that particular post. So I am always peeking in. ;) Enjoy your day!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The French market bag is sweet Shane and I'd love to be entered in your draw.
I have been using cloth bags for groceries for several years and especially like the pretty ones with graphics.
After freezing temperatures and lots of snow, the roller coaster weather has taken us to mild weather again for a few days.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

A fun giveaway Shane! Seeing that rooster certainly brightened my day, after having endured a huge snowfall and now lots of rain. Dull and yucky outside, but fun things to see on your blog.

Hetty said...

Dear Shane, I want to reply to your comment on my blog. The snow is not real! It is made of polystyrene, a kind of plastic. We can buy this in every garden centre in Holland. The same question came from Spain. Apparently this snow is not global!
Enjoy the sunshine and forget the snow, Hetty.

As a collector of chickens, both egg layers, and decorative, I like the rooter tote. To put the chicken feed bags to good use once they are empty, I have a friend stitch them up into shopping bags, but yours is far more elegant.

Cristal @ Dapple Design said...

Thanks for visiting recently, Shane. The photo challenge really is the highlight of my blogging month.

Your market bag is lovely.

kitty said...

Hi Shane,
What a fabulous giveaway and yes, I'm already a follower of yours.
Thank you for your visit to my blog. My late beloved hubby and I were married in 1970, also. It was a very good year! Hugs across the miles to you.

Marilyn said...

What a very lovely give-away. Though I follow you and you are on my favorites list, I guess I had better "join this sight" to become official. I do love following the beauty you share here.

Maelchen said...

Oh Shane... I feel bad... I visit you frequently, share your dreams of France but since I use my tablett to enter the internet most of times, I feel it difficult to write a comment. My clumsy little fingers just do not go hand in hand with the the little lettering...
So much for my apologies... But I won't moan now... No reason for it! It is nice to see you, even nicer to find out that you are so generous to host a give away. I find it so sweet that even in this occasion you have France in your mind... I'll send you a french kiss on both cheeks to comfort your longing a bit, heehee... Have a nice day, dear Shane, and see you soon!
Hugs from Manu

Linda P. said...

I always enjoy reading your blog, Shane, as there are so many pretty things that you share each time you post. Sending my best wishes. xx

Mary said...

Wow Shane, there will definitely be a smile on some lucky gal's face when she hears she's won such a great gift! A charming, colorful market bag, and wonderful contents - you have such impeccable taste when it comes to choosing French-inspired pretties. I wish I was in France right now - my brother says they still have lovely mild weather in the southwest, and Paris is magnificent no matter what the weather!

Meanwhile, here's hoping Spring is turning balmy and drier there for you in Auckland my dear. As Thanksgiving arrives here the leaves are falling fast and furious - now smothering us after heavy rain last night.
We head to the coast Friday and should have dry, cool weather which is fine with me!

Hugs - Mary x

Jeanie said...

Who wouldn't want to win that wonderful bag! And oh, how your photos remind me so of wonderful France. A smile is on my face right now!
