Can you believe how fast the month of August has passed?!!
Today is my fifth and last giveaway, and I have to thank each of the sponsors who have donated so generously each week to make this giveaway season so spectacular.
Thank you also to everyone who has taken part. Your enthusiasm for each new prize, and your willingness to share on facebook et al, is amazing.
Without further ado, here is today's giveaway, which I know you are going to adore ...
There is a talented lady, bearing the dreamy name of Jessica Chauvot de Beauchêne, who lives in a century old village in Switzerland. She is originally from Connecticut, but she fell in love with a frenchman, and has since settled in Europe.
She creates these wonderful cushions from old linen sacks, with the original writing, or with logo and writing reproduced in traditional style.
She writes a charming blog, and she has an amazing etsy store, all under the name of Atelier Be.
She and her husband moved to Switzerland at the same time as her parent's in law were emptying their family's Norman farmhouse which was packed to the rafters with trunk upon trunk of old textiles, etc. [NDLR, excuse me while I sit down and breathe deeply!]
She took as much as she could possibly fit with no clear idea of what to do with it all. [Pass me the smelling salts] ...... Eventually creativity sparked and the Atelier was born, the Atelier Be website and etsy soon followed. Now she searches from brocante to basement looking for old fabrics to re-purpose and infuse with new life.
So Jess's very generous giveaway is for TWO pillow shams [that would be cushion covers for the British amongst us! ) of your choice, shipped anywhere in the world, so yet again this giveaway is open to all.
