Paris Themed Give Away day # 3

Good morning everyone!!!

If you missed day one - you can still enter HERE - it's open till Sunday evening
If you missed day two - you can still enter HERE - it's open till Monday evening

But on to today's giveaway.- which is sponsored by another sweet friend of mine
This lady's life parallels my own in a very frightening way lol - not only do we spell
our names the same ( not Suzanne but Suzan with a Z ) but our lives have very eerily
followed the same paths - from childhood on.................
AND she once dated a JOHN SWEATMAN - now that is truly bizarre - and if you don't know
why you can hop over here to read why HERE

Ok - meet my blogging Doppleganger!!!


Suzan from HAZELNUT DEUX
Suzan's a quilter - a baker - a candle stick maker - ok not sure about the candle stick maker but she does beautiful quilting like this fabulous Christmas table runner


and it's reversable - which I LOVE - because there's always spills on my Christmas dinner table lol
Isn't it gorgeous?


and beautiful pillow covers



She also does the most amazing " transfer " work - I absolutely LOVE this one!!!


and cloth coasters - which are soooo pretty and perfect for a give away I thought, except..................


they didn't match the theme of my All Things Paris Give away - so - because I have more nerve than a toothache and Suzan has more patience then Job - she graciously agreed to make some Parisien ones!!!
And wow - did she deliver - check out these beauties!


Is that a beautiful graphic or what?


A set of 4 are being sent to a lucky reader !!!

And once again we come to the rules part

#1  You have to follow  HAZELNUT DEUX
#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 Thursday ;)
Open to U.S. and Canada



And lastly I've added another silhouette to my Parisien Skyline - some parts are still wet because I'm literally doing one a night but it's supposed to be the Notre Dame Cathedral - just pretend the door opens all the way to the back and that's why you can see through it lol - I'm going to have to paint the doorway in I suppose - because it looks like another Arc of some sort like this!



Have a wonderful Thursday - and Bonne Chance everyone!!!
Much love,

  4. My French word is actually a short expression which if tacked on to the end of a sentence means something like huh? or right? actually it means "isn't it?" It's a nice expression, n'est-ce pas? Jo @ Let's Face the Music

  5. Isn't it amazing (and unsettling, too...lol...) when you run across someone whose life parallels yours? And she's just as creative! I love her work; it's very beautiful. I haven't really entered any of the giveaways yet because I haven't met all the terms. This is because I haven't had time to really check out the blogs. I don't want to follow a blog just for the giveaway; I really want to explore each one and get to know them. So, even though I haven't officially entered the giveaways, I do enjoy coming to see all the fabulous things that are being offered. And I think it's really wonderful what you and all these amazing people are doing.

  42. Bonjour Suzan, Well, how amazing to find a friend whose life has ran a similar course to yours and who spells her name the same way as yours!
    These coasters are gorgeous.... if I was lucky enough to win, do you know, I don't think I would allow anyone to put a cup on them them.... I think I would have to frame them.
    Suzan has put such a lot of work into making the coasters, as the fringing must have taken such a long time.... yes definitely they will be framed!
    I am now off to visit your lovely friend.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

  43. I know you are waiting for this. Well not the actual word, just for me to type one in French, Couilles.

  44. I'm now following Hazelnut Duex and I've left her a comment and now I'm leaving you a comment too. Thanks for the chance to win those cute coasters. Love your sense of humor "more nerve than a toothache"! I took French for several years and even went on a short trip to France, you think I could come up with something to say in French but alas "Je ne sa pas". I'm not even sure I spelled that correctly. :)

  49. Wow, those are pretty! Merci, for the opportunity. XOXO I won't give you a ballet term or a music term today, though that is about the extent of my French, besides petite choux or some other little phrases. My father's mother was French Canadian.

  50. Je n'parle pas francias bien. And I can't spell either. But I do know Suzanne 'cause she's like awesome. Tres awesome.

Can I beat these spammers at their own game? Probably not - but I'm going
