Paris inspired give away!


Bonjour mon ami,

In anticipation of my art trip to Paris in October I am having my first give away. It will be a french shabby chic creation and it will be a monthly give away starting April 1st and ending on October 1st. So if you would like to be included in the April giveaway just leave me a comment, s'il vous plait (if you please) here on my blog, telling me where you would like to visit, and at the end of the month I will randomly draw a name and that person will be the winner for April.
I will be giving little hints and maybe a few pics soon of what the April giveaway will be.

I'm so looking forward to reading about what your dream trip is.

Au revoir,
deborah

I'm still jealous you're going to Paris! I know it will be a wonderful trip. While I'd love to go to Paris someday, my dream trip is a tour of Italy, starting with Venice.

Mrs.Kwitty said...

A trip to Paris! wow Deborah, that's fantastic!!

I guess I have two dream trips--one would be a trip to the Holy Land. I would love to go and see the places I read about in the bible and walk in Jesus' footsteps. The other one, more likely!, would be a trip out to Arizona to see my Dad--I haven't seen him for so long and would love to be able to give him a big ol' smooch!
Smiles, Karen

The Vintage Butterfly said...

My dream is to go to France on a flea market tour and come home with tons of yummy things, including an authentic Paris souvenir of the Eiffel Tower to add to my little collection.

starrynightimpressions said...

Wonderful comments ladies,
and don't despair contessa kris, my husband and I were going to go to Paris on our 20th wedding anniversary but didn't make it that year, but then on our 25th we went for 2 weeks and it was worth the wait. And vintage butterfly, I did bring back lots of flea market goodies, a beautiful french tablecloth was one item and for a great price!
Ohhhh the giveaway list is growing, can't wait to see who wins.

Paris...ah the lights, the sights, the museums...I bet you cannot wait to be sitting at one of those oh so chic cafes enjoying the night air. How lovely. I too would one day love to visit Paris and the famous paris flea market. I wonder if you can attend one while there? Ooooh... I am so jealous!
Love your latest creation. Very pretty.

I'm just jealous that you're going on any vacation, let alone one to Europe! Having been to France, Germany, Austria, and Ireland, I'd have to say that next on my list are England, Scotland, Wales, and Italy--especially Venice. I must get there before it floods! :O

Beautiful works, I hope a lot of people visit your blog. Regars from Spain

Rhondamum said...

I have a great idea! Put me in your suitcase! I am so obsessed with France!

When I went many years ago, (I was living in Great Britain at the time) the french people I knew thought it was silly to go to Paris "That is not the true France" they would say. But you can't go to France and not see Paris.

I am trying to plan a trip there now with my husband. I would appreciate it so much more now. I would also want to go to some small towns and see a non-tourist view.

I would LOVE to chat with you and exchange notes. Give me a visit some time and PLEASE enter me in your giveaway. Anything at all with a Parisian theme I would treasure!

WE NEED TO CHAT!
Rhonda...

Bunny B said...

That's so awesome that you're going to Paris! I would loooooove to go to Paris!!

My dream trip would be to go all over the world! I'm sorry I couldn't just pick one. But I especially want to go to Europe and Hawaii. One to soak in the culture and the other to soak in the sun :)

obsessed scrapbooker said...

My dream trip always has been and always will be an African Safari! I'm sure I'd have to have major tranquilizers to survive the long plane trip but once there, it would be a dream come true and oh, the pictures I would take!

Victorian Lady said...

Have fun in Paris! :) I have always wanted to go to Scotland.

Cami said...

Magnifique! I haven't been to Paris since I was a very young girl. We lived in Madrid and traveled about during that time. Mid 70's... I'd love to go back just to flea market, work in my art journal and eat chocolate croissants until I puke!!! TMI! Sorry... I shall. Indeed. Have a lovely trip and think of me... {Camille}

Lisa Cook said...

I have been fortunate in that I have been to Paris and the French Riviera as well as London and part of England. Those were my first places I wanted to see. I do want to take my husband with me to see Paris (I was visiting our daughter there by myself). And I would love to visit every flea market or brocante in France, England and Belgium someday. Wouldn't that be a dream come true?!
Thanks Deborah!

Vintage Tea said...

Living 2 hours away from Paris by train I can't believe I haven't made a trip there yet! I went a few years ago to EuroDisney but it's Versailles and the Flea Markets I really want to see!!

I would love to visit Italy, specifically Sicily. I just want to sit and take it all in and feel the ultimate in inspiration!

Marilyn said...

Oo-la-la, Paris! I spent two weeks in France 15 years ago and I love my memories from that trip! Thanks for stirring them up again :-)
I think Greece would be a very nice place to visit...Marilyn

I really want to go to Africa - definitely to do a safari, and also to volunteer helping the poor/aids patients.

Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage said...

Amanda said...

Oh wow!! I've always wanted to travel - especially since I've only been out of Canada once (to Rhode Island). I would definitely love to see Italy first, as well as journey all across Europe and lounge on some tropical beaches... I want to see the ocean..

Dinah said...

Paris would have to be my dream destination too! (Love your work by the way.)
