I always found February a very dreary month despite Valentine's Day coming in the  middle of the month.  Although, the bright pinks and reds associated with Valentine's Day do help to chase away the blues for a bit, it still leaves me a little blah feeling.

It is usually in February that I get the itch for spring and all those gorgeous colors associated with it.  The beautiful color of the purple hyacinth, yellow daffodils, and the assorted colors of the tulips.  LOL  Spring is my most favorite season and has always put the "bounce" back into my step.  I love smelling the sweet aroma of the flowers and watching the brown sodden earth turn into that beautiful shade of green.

Because it is such a quiet month, I thought I would have a Giveaway.  Since I love to do this, I can't think of a better time than now.  Now, for the good part...I am giving away a gorgeous book with French recipes from Laudree's.  Not only do the recipes sound faBulous but the book comes in a pretty pink box with Laudree's displayed on the front, with luscious pink tissue paper covering the book that when opened shows a gorgeous purple suede book with silver printing on the front. Well, see for yourself....

Isn't it pretty?  Have you ever received a book like this?  Wrapped so lovely!  I first found out about it while visiting Chocolates and Croissants blog(HERE) reading one of her book reviews.  (She does wonderful book reviews!)  It is filled with the most mouth watering dishes.

Now, to enter the giveaway:

1.  Leave a comment under this blog post.

2.  If you aren't already a follower, follow me and leave another comment.

3.  Like me on La Petite boutique de perles Facebook page and leave an
     additional comment.

The contest ends Wednesday, February 29 at midnight CST.

Spread the word and may the best person win!
