Ethereal Plus What I Love

Hi all,

 I hope you are having a great weekend.  I've been busy sewing napkins  pillow covers and stenciling some beautiful pillowcases with French script, new items I will be sharing with all of you and adding to my Etsy Shop in September.

Below, is a giveaway that I won from Francine blog, Ethereal Plus What I Love  Francine's Blog.  She has just started in hosting a monthly swap party for people who want to meet new bloggers.  Every month, she selects a new blog for you and you add their blog button to your side bar for that month.  To become familiar with the blog, you write a post about the blog including photos, hobbies, and some background information about the person behind the blog.  I've never done this before and Francine has been wonderful in helping me by creating a button for my blog and advising on the particulars. To find out more about it, you can check it out here: Button Swap Party.

This is what was in the giveaway:

Look at all these goodies.  The jar with the ribbon around it is filled with Lemon balm grown from Francine's own garden and it smells heavenly.

I love the keys in the distressed enclosed glass frame and have already found a home for them.  The oatmeal soap has a wonderful clean and fresh smell and I can't wait to use it.

Also included a very pretty cup for my coffee, tote bag, postcards and an old photo.  I'm just thrilled to death with everything!!  Thanks so much Francine!  ♥♥

I hope you will pop on over to pay Francine a visit, she has a beautiful blog and  a wonderful eye for finding and displaying her antique finds in beautiful vignettes.  Not only is her blog inspiring, she also has tutorials on her DYI projects that are easy to follow.  She is a beautiful person with a beautiful soul.


  1. Kris, oh wow, what beautiful goodies. Congratulation from the bottom of my heart. I can imagine, how happy you are. And I think, this cafe cup will assuredly sweeten your break between your hard work at sewing and stenceling.
    Currently we have a beautiful sunny days we hunger for and spent time outside all day long playing with our nephew and niece who will stay with us for two days. We had much fun and really enjoy the day. I wish you much success in your work, and all the best.

  2. Isn't it exciting winning a giveaway? And they always show up so beautifully wrapped! I love the framed keys, that is so pretty and unique.

    Happy sewing, I look forward to seeing what new pieces you add to your shop:) Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

  3. Oh, what a gift of treasures! My favorite is the frame of old keys and I will have to try this myself. I have a small collection and have started on for my grandchildren. Although I like to touch them/hold them, I have enough to frame.

    Hope that you have a wonderful week, mon amie!
