Dreams of France + GIVEWAY & DISCOUNTS!

Dreams of France.
Who doesn't dream of France?
Pastries & Romance....there's not a whole lot better in our book.
Since we won't be going there any time soon,
we drift off to France in our thoughts when we visit our Sponsor's store!


Dreams of France is full of romantic treasures that will make you feel as if you have landed in Europe without ever leaving your home.
{Carte Postale Pillow Sham ~ $50.00}

Jackie, the owner of Dreams of France, started her shop a year ago this month. "I have always wanted to own a little shop and bring beautiful things in to share with people ~ things that I would love to have in my own home," Jackie shares.

We asked Jackie to tell us what inspires her with her store,
"
I am inspired by all of the amazing, talented women I have met through blogging and all of the wonderful things they do. My children inspire me to be a better person and to see the world through fresh eyes. My husband inspires me with his patience, kindness and support of me and all my endeavors. And overall, I am inspired by the beauty that is all around me…especially now that spring is around the corner!"

We love her answer and I think many of you would to! Blogging is a world of inspiration as are the people we love that surround us.

{Tea Dyed Towel ~ $12.00}

We appreciate unique shops, artists, bloggers. We love when people cultivate their own style and stamp of authenticity. We asked Jackie to tell us what three things are unique about her and/or her store.
She said:
"
The items I carry are largely made by hand by friends or other women with small businesses. I like to support individual artisans as much as possible.

My shop is very specific to it's theme of Dreams of France - I'm keeping it small and focused to things I really love. Most of what I carry, I believe, reflects a French feeling. I do "dream of France"…and I am lucky enough to get to go there this summer!

One of my favorite parts about having the shop is taking pictures. I'm learning as I go about photography and am really enjoying being able to share that as part of what you see on the site!"

{La Lumiere ~ now $19.00}

Lastly, we wanted Jackie to share some words of encouragement with you. Are you dreaming of starting a store or something that just has you a little...scared? In Jackie's words,
" Just do it!! Seriously, I don't know a ton about business, but I would say, stay true to a vision, start small and let it grow naturally. I love what I'm doing and I am thrilled with every order I get - it's a blessing to be able to do what you love to do! "

Well, because Jackie is SO awesome, she's hosting a giveaway here!
She is giving away 1 of her Madonna Burlap pillow covers pictured below + the insert for it!
