a little piece of france {a provence rugs giveaway}

UPDATE: The winner of this giveaway is #164, Alexandra!

It is entirely possible that I may never have the opportunity to set foot on French soil.

I mean, its totally on my to do list, bucket list, 100 places to visit before I die list, etc. But I certainly don’t see it happening in the foreseeable future. With a healthy mortgage requiring a good bit of sacrifice, 3 boys, team uniforms (x3), braces (x3), college tuitions (x3)…are you seeing a pattern? I’m not whining…promise. Just stating the facts. Perhaps someday when this stage of life is over and done.

For now there’s a small little corner in my “dining room” that’s bringing just a little bit of France right to me…

Lovely isn’t it? I love the detail on the trim fabric of the bees and fruit.

Short of visiting yourself, there’s no way to purchase these beautifully handcrafted rugs here in the states. The virtual boutique is the brainchild of Libby and Delana…read their story here.

And its not only rugs. Find beautiful fabric laminated accessories…trays, dishes and bowls…that coordinate with their colorful rugs.
