If you missed DAY 2 - you can click HERE - winner will be announced Tuesday morning,
If you missed DAY 3 - you can click HERE - winner will be announced Thursday morning.

And now on to today's sponsor.
Meet Julie from FOLLOW YOUR HEART WOODWORKING - and say hello to her sexy legs
( because that's the only photo I can find of her LMHO ) but they are sexy!!!


I wish I had a photo of her hands because they create some pretty incredible woodworking projects..........
Like this


and these trays - which she makes from scratch so they can be customized!!!


GORGEOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




I'm getting carried away here - her woodworking skills are just incredible............really!!!
AND she does custom pieces - including BARN DOORS !!!

Julie ran to her workshop to create this for the Paris Themed Give away


John says - WHY are you banging nails into the wall if we're showing the house next week
Suzan says - because I have to hang this up
John says - Can't it wait till we move?
Suzan says - most definitely NOT
John says - what's with the trees growing out of it?
Suzan says - they're baby's breath - mind your beeswax please
John says - looks like trees - not the right look for it at all..................
Suzan says - listen - Nate Berkus you're not
John says - Who the hell is Nate Berkus????

My interior decorator - laying on the bed watching t.v. -  anyone want to borrow him for a month or two???
Please???
A half an hour later I went in the bedroom and the baby's breath had vanished



It's the most darling sign..............perfectly shabby - and PARISIEN !!!!
Wish I had a black and white bathroom for this ( not that it belongs in a bathroom Julie - but I have a vision here of a black and white elegant Parisien Salle De Bain  lol )

Back to the rules part everyone!!!

#1  You have to follow  FOLLOW YOUR HEART WOODWORKING
#2  You have to go visit and leave her a comment
#3  You most definitely need to leave me a comment LOL


I'm not making it a rule that you have to follow me ( nice if you did but definitely not a rule - except for those of you that already do - YOU are not allowed to leave - ever!!!
But I've been having so much fun with the number # 4 from the previous 2 giveaways that I'm leaving it in - so.............

#4 - You have to say at least one French word on your comment - tee hee - can't tell you how much I've enjoyed reading them!!!
Winner will be chosen next Friday ;)
Open to U.S. and Canada

And another silhouette for my Paris Skyline Silhouette - Sacre Coeur - it looks likes it's floating in the sky - but that's because it's on top of Montmartre!!!
All of the black will need another coat - but I'm more concerned with getting the skyline done first!!!


That wraps up this week's giveaways - but stay tuned - Monday we're back - up and running with another FABULOUS Paris themed giveaway - and it doesn't disappoint - you're all going to want to see it!!!

And lastly - I had a huge panic moment yesterday with my inbox - I went to delete a comment that I had just replied to and every comment disappeared - gone - not even in my deleted file ( of which there were 6000 comments ) - don't know what I did but I'm sure there are a lot of people I didn't reply to - so I'm sending out a big BONNE CHANCE to everyone that signed up!!!.

Have a wonderful weekend all - I had a blast doing this!!!
Much love,
Bisous a vous

  13. Good Morning Suzan,
    This is really fun to see all the neat Paris theme gifts. This sign is so pretty and I too agree it needs to go to a home with someone with the black and white theme. How beautiful would that be. I am going over to follow this talented lady because I love the bunny, the bike tray, the cheese tray ohh my I love it all. Ha Ha John thinking baby's breath is tree's. He is such a MAN sometimes!!!!!

  18. Another great one! For some reason I have the Little Mermaid swimming in my head today, so your Frenchie for the day is,

    "Les poissons, les poissons
    Hee hee hee, haw haw haw
    With a cleaver I hack them in two
    I pull out what's inside
    And I serve it up fried
    God, I love little fishes, don't you?"

    Happy Friday!
    xoxo

  19. Zut alors! It's stuck in my head now so I'll add to Andi's song-

    Now I stuff you with bread
    It don't hurt 'cause you're dead
    And you're certainly lucky, you are
    'Cause it's gonna be hot
    In my big silver pot
    Toodle loo mon poisson, au revoir!

    1. Sacre bleu
      What is this?
      How on earth could I miss
      Such a sweet little succulent crab?
      Quel dommage
      What a loss
      Here we go in the sauce
      Now some flour, I think
      Just a dab
      Now I stuff you with bread
      It don't hurt 'cause you're dead

Going right now to visit Julie and leave her a comment. My French word again has to be Pepe Le Pew, considering the other ones were deleted!

  36. Beau Monde! (sorry, I couldn't find the words 'beautiful work' in French. This is as close as I could get. Anyway, her woodworking is amazing! off to visit her blog and follow. Have a great weekend, Suzan, mon voisin. (and absolutely no idea how to pronounce it.) Hey, I just found Google translate:
