Paris Themed Giveaway # 2 - Day 2

Good Morning everyone!!!
If you missed the first giveaway you can click HERE to enter still.  The winner for Day 1 will be announced next Monday.

Now on to another incredible " artiste " friend of mine.
Meet Tuula - from The Thrifty Rebel


Tuula does the most amazing things - from furniture makeovers - to room makeovers but what really grabs my heart is her Garden Art

She creates things like this


and this


and these magnificent chimes - made from vintage goblets - you really must visit this makeover to believe it really - HERE


After all of us telling her she is an ARTISTE - I think she finally accepted that fact and has opened an
Etsy shop which you can visit HERE ( be prepared to be totally inspired )

What do you do when you see old vintage silverware - an ashtray - and some bling?
Well Tuula creates wind chimes - specific wind chimes for THIS giveaway!!!


I wish I had a decent camera for this because it's just gorgeous beyond belief - and makes the most beautiful tinkling sound you can imagine

Each spoon was hammered out - and lucky for us she had just bought a die cast tool and stamped in French words onto each spoon!!!


The care she put into the details - the little bits of bling - that it was made with this giveaway specifically in mind makes it absolutely priceless to me!!!


Wouldn't you just love to have this original Vintage Wind Chime ???  I haven't put mine outside yet - but I can't wait to sit outside with a magazine and a cup of tea - and listen to these swaying in the wind - the music is just magical...............



Ok - so the rules will be the same as yesterday's !!!

#1  You have to follow  THE THRIFTY REBEL
#2  You have to go visit and leave her a comment
#3  You most definitely need to leave me a comment LOL

#4
Strike number 4 -  I was going to say you have to follow me - and although I'd certainly love it if you did -
I'm not going to make that a rule!!!!!!!!
SO..........3 simple ones
No no !!!  I just thought of a 4th rule - you have to put one French word in your comments - seriously -
1 French word!!! (  I had so much fun with the French words you all came up with yesterday that I have to keep that in lol )
The third give away will be up Thursday - you can enter them all - but you can only win one ( just to be fair )

Give away is open to U.S. and Canada 

Tomorrow will be the scheduled I WANNA live there as usual

Are you ready?
Get set.............
GO !!!



AND I can't tell you how suprised I am that NO one said Voulez vous coucher avec moi, ce soir - AND I KNOW YOU ALL KNOW THOSE WORDS LOL

I added one more silhouette to my board..................the Moulin Rouge - can you do the can can - can you do the can can !!!


it's coming - I add one building every night lol
to see the others you can peak HERE and HERE

Ok everyone - the best of luck !!!

Big hugs,
