Vintage French Tolix Chairs in the Shop, a 300.00 Dreamy Whites Gift Card Giveaway along with a French Linen Tote and More....


Hello!
When I first started blogging, I had no idea what to expect...
I actually didn't have any expectations because I didn't know what blogging was, I thought only people like Martha Stewart had a blog.  I had no idea that it was this amazing community of women who love to support and encourage one another....
I was so nervous when I got my first 100 followers....
I actually had an anxiety attack....
I thought to myself what in the world will I share with them...
I honestly just started a blog to share with others that you don't have to live in a mansion or own your  home to create a home you love, and you can live with white even if you have a large family and live on a ranch with kids that love to swim in the muddy ponds : ) You don't have to live in an old french farmhouse in the south of France to live in a home that has a french farmhouse feel, we live in a newly built modular home (we do not own this home, although I wish we did : ) and have tried to add a little french farmhouse charm throughout the years....
Shortly after I started blogging
I decided to open a shop because readers were asking where I got some of the items in my home....
It took me a year to get my online shop opened...
I am still working on trying to achieve that vision that I have in my head.... Not sure if it will ever happen...
My shop has now been open for a little over a year and a half.....
I can't thank all of you enough for all of the support you have given me these past couple of years....
Your support and encouragement came at a time when I needed it most...
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

 Today I wanted to giveaway three prizes to show how much I appreciate all the support and encouragement you guys have given me...
There will be three winners drawn...

Prize 1~ $300.00 gift card to my shop
Prize 2~A chic french linen tote filled with a few items from my favorite bakery and a Raw Materials Design French Waiter Apron
Prize 3~a dozen 6"x6" lavender pillows
Giveaway details will be at the bottom of the post....
First I just wanted to share a few images of new products in the shop....
I listed these items in my shop over a month ago, so some of the items are already sold, but I thought I would share the images anyway....


I had shot these images towards the beginning of July and already shared some of these images on facebook so sorry for the repeat images....

(It actually ended up being an expensive day....
Adele ended up with two foxtails in both of her ears : (...
So we had to make a quick trip to the vet....)


I found these vintage french tolix chairs at the Chateau Sonoma Flea Market and am so excited to be able to offer them in my shop.... 
I wanted to create a scene for the shoot that still had a farmhouse feel mixed with a little industrial.


I wish I had gotten a little more creative with the table setting, I kind of did the same as I always do...


I loaded the french carrier with European milk bottles, my hydrangeas, and some French lemonade from Safeway...


A few more images of french farmhouse items you will find in my shop....


vintage french tolix chairs






I love this little basket, I think it would make an adorable flower girl basket for a wedding...




 



Giveaway Details.....
Winner # 1 will receive a 300.00 gift card to my shop......


Winner # 2 will receive a french linen market tote filled with a Raw Materials Design apron and a few finds from my favorite Bakery, Andrae's Bakery........
I think everyone should get to experience shopping at Andrae's so I wanted to giveaway a couple of my favorite items from Andrae's Bakery....


I posted here about the sweet and talented Janna Lufkin and Raw Materials Design....




Sonoma Sea Salt from Andrae's Bakery





Winner #3 will receive a dozen 6"x6" lavender pillows made from a variety of red striped grain sacks and french linen.



Giveaway Rules!
Giveaway is open to my international readers as well : )
First winner drawn by random number will win a

Second winner drawn by random number will win
a chic french linen tote filled with a few items from my favorite bakery and a Raw Materials Design French Waiter Apron

The third winner drawn by random number will win a dozen 6"x6" lavender pillows.

your 300.00 gift certificate to my online shop if you were to win....

Giveaway ends August 25th at midnight.

I just want to thank you again for the continued support so many of you have given me these past couple of years....
Also a special thank you to Lori of White Flower Farmhouse, I wouldn't have ever started a blog if it wasn't for the kindness and encouragement you showed me one rainy day....
Take Care,
Maria

If I won I can honestly say my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law plus my mom would all receive antique french linens for Christmas. Even if I don't I am saving up my pennies as there are a few things that I know they would absolutely love!! (not to mention I would mind myself either..)

Kelsey said...

AGH! Ok, if I win $300, here's what I'd do...

Probably buy one of the same market totes you're giving away...

Probably buy 2-4 au lait bowls...

Probably try to get a chalkboard...

The beekeeper tray caught my eye...

Maybe I'd go for the ironstone milk pitcher...

Or maybe I'd just buy that Dutch table. Yeah. That would be good too.

Victoria said...

Wow, what an incredible giveaway! If I were to win the giftcard I would definitely buy some Christmas things. We just moved cross country so I wasn't able to bring most of my decorations. !

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Maria,
I have shopped in your "French Farmhouse living shop" and purchased a white enamelware pitcher that was filled with fresh sweet smelling lavender! So I know how wonderful and lovely your wares are. I was browsing the shop and fell in love with the french apple basket, if I was the lucky one to win the gift cert, I would be buying the apple basket. Your gifts are so sweet and very thoughtful. I always enjoy my visits with you.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

Kirsty said...

Christine C. said...

I've had my eye on the antique lavender bottles and the milk bottle caddy from Holland. I would love to fill the milk jars with flowers from our yard, and use it as a centerpiece on our farmhouse table! And the lavender bottles would look perfect on my fireplace mantel!

You have an amazing blog- it is always a treat to stop by!

Rhonda said...

Ooh La La, I would spend on the green bistro chairs, all of it.
Or...the enamal French coffee pot and linens, sachets...now I cannot decide. French dreaming again.

I will be adding this to my sidebar on my blog.

Merci for the chance!

Melaine Thompson said...

And I love your view on that you can make a simple house look amazing with details.
Blessings, barbara

Jen Kershner said...

Well, I know for sure I would want that vintage fruit crate but aside from that the possibilities just make me too giddy to decide.

primjillie said...

Maria, your pictures are more gorgeous every post! I drool over each new post! It would be hard to decide on what to spend a gift card - either grain sack linens, baskets, or even that lovely french table. Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway!

What a generous giveaway Maria! You can't imagine the wonderful influence your style has had over so many of us. You portray French Farmhouse to perfection, and remind us we can have it anywhere. I've followed you since the beginning and am always so impressed by your vision and style.
Gosh, I wouldn't know where to begin if I won a GC to your store. Guess I'm a bit fond of linens and I love those baskets!
Thanks so much for this chance & for all your inspiration.

Trisha said...

Wow! So generous! If I were to win the gift card, I would spend all of it on myself! I am a renter again and I love nothing more than to really transform my house into my home. I love it when my cousin (who we rent from) comes over and tells me how much cuter the house is the way I have it decorated. Your wonderful items would help make it even better and even more mine!! Fingers crossed!!

Such beautiful images and items! Thank you for sharing the inspiration!! Wow, I would be thrilled with any of the winnings! The treasures from the gift card would go to decorate my home, evoking the sense of peace I'd like to instill more of. The bag and goodies - those would all be snatched up on a picnic before these few sunny days left in Seattle disappear! And my birthday is next month and I'm celebrating with a few of my best friends, so I'd put one in each of the goodie bags (and save a couple for my own drawers)!

Oh my dear Maria....you have come so far, and are so deserving of all the praise! You are naturally amazing :) I have enjoyed following you along your journey....
$300 in your lovely shoppe?! I dont even think it could come close to covering all of the gorgeous things I want! I really have been coveting the grainsack pillows....and I think I need more of the mini stockings since the holidays will be here soon! I gave one to each family last Christmas and now I only have 4 left! Hugs girlie XOX

Christie said...

Hmmm, aprons, that fruit crate, the enamelware coffee pot ... how would I really pick?!

I love that your lovely home is not owned by you. Really, all those things you said are so inspirational (including white on a ranch with kids).

:D

Jo said...

I was going to name a few things that I wanted. I looked at the shop and decided there is no way I could decide right now. If I won, I would look and look and look. I would write a list, I would add to it, I would cross things off, and after looking again, I'd add them back on. I would savor the search. I would love every minute of it! Thanks for the chance to win. Your blog is beautiful.

grandma peden's porch said...

Oh gosh you have so many cute things over there in that little shop of yours what wouldn't I want to spend the gift card on? I have been jonesin on the 2 teal painted chairs but the grain sacks have caught my eye too...just to many decisions.

Margaret said...

I'm constantly hinting to hubs for the lavender laundry package. The rest of the gc would go for the lavender pillows, the european milk bottle, and the grain sack pillow slip. I love lavender and my wee one calls it her pixie dust

Christmas stuff, Christmas stuff, Christmas stuff or more specific, the stockings and a few of the beautiful, amazing wreaths. I love the mini stockings and would get rid of my old stockings and replace them with your Antique French White Linen Christmas Stockings and of course, that would lead me to tossing all of my old Christmas stuff out and replace it,so I could have the French Farmhouse Christmas feel.

I would get something with lavendar. I love lavendar. I would have to browse through the linen section-love the waiter apron-and through the antiques too! I don't think it would be hard to spend.

Melanie said...

It's hard to choose from all the beautiful things in yout shop, even with 300.00$, but I think I would take the "Enamelware Milk Bucket", and the "Zinc Pitcher". From the rest a looot of lavendel.

Daune | Cottage in the Oaks said...

Oh, how fun! I would use it to purchase all those items on my wish list from your shop! ;)

Samantha C said...

SO hard to choose! I really like the glassware, the linens, and the lavendar!

Will said...

I would be so flattered to win this competition of items. Each item being given away would have a unique value and meaning to my interior design I am trying to provide for my wife.

I would love to be able to give her such a beautiful apron as well as such an incredible amount to be used in your shop. Not only this, but I think I could truly benefit by seeing how lovely she looked in said apron and putting great use to the items being offered! Thank you for such a lovely curated list of items. We would truly treasure them.

Pattie @ On Hollyhock Farm said...

Wow! Great giveaway! I would certainly use it towards the bistro chairs! Love them.

Fiona, LilyfieldLife said...

Hi Maria, I'm so glad you started a blog, yours was me of the very first blogs I ever looked at before I even knew what blogging really was. I love your little modular house- who would ever think it wasn't a cottage in the south of France!! Love it!
If I win I'd love something made from grain sacks. Actually there is so much to choose from your beautiful shop.
Cheers Fiona

Vintage Girl said...

I just would like one of everything in your lovely shop.
Cheers, and thanks for the continued inspiration

Wendy said...

Oh my, what to pick? I really would have a difficult but fun time picking from your shop. I imagine things go quickly so I would have to move fast for sure. I love the textiles and with the holidays coming up, I would love to look into the Christmas items. Your blog is lovely and thank you for sharing all of your beautiful work.

Annie said...

Bonny Neiman said...

At the beginning of your current post I wanted to say how beautiful the photos are and, like a framed photo in our homes, love seeing again and again. I can't tell you how much I LOVE when there is a post of yours in my mailbox. It is always an escape for me before I breeze off to my store in the northeast. I will mention your giveaway on my blog and thought of it even before I finished your post! Anything would be lovely, you have such a talent for photography and writing and shopping!

So funny, I was just looking at your French bottles yesterday because of a picture on someone else's blog. I would surely take my time picking out something special! (like the turquoise bistro chairs!)

Kathi said...

What a lovely post and giveaway, I never get tired of looking through your wonderful photos! After a nice long browse I think a pair of bistro chairs would be my first choice if I were lucky enough to win. That could change at any moment since I love everything in your shop!

What a generous giveaway Maria! I have been a reader from the beginning. I probably found you through Lori. The White Flower Farmhouse is one of my favorite stops when I head out to the East End of LI. Her shop is about 1 hour from me. Love it! If I won a gc to your shop I would probably go for something French. We visited France in April and I'm sorry I didn't bring something home from the Paris Flea. I love the enamel pitchers, french mason jars, ironstone or the latte bowls, everything actually! Thank you!

Hi Maria,
I am so happy that Canada is included in this give away. Thank you. I would use the 300 on the large apple basket or the mustard jar and grain sack pillows or apron. Its really hard to choose. Love everything.

Vintage French Hen said...

Maria, you are so so sweet to offer these wonderful give always! I can't believe we have never met, I live in Turlock, so we really aren't that far away from each other! We have a few cute little shops here downtown that you would probably love. I would have a hard time deciding what to buy from your shop, everything is so gorgeous, but my weakness is linens, so I would probably start there. Thanks again Maria!
