It is a rainy day here in SW France so I decided to stay in doors today and as a result have been updating the Fabulously French online shop and thought that I would share some photos of my wee shop with you. I adore this banner made from vintage playing cards and have ordered a couple more including one with the words "Joyeux Noel" which I plan to use on our Christmas tree.
The cloth that you see on the fireplace was a gift from my friend, so it is extra special to me.
On the mantle I originally had red metal houses but these have sold out so I have replaced them with these larger rusty style houses which look gorgeous when the candle inside is lit.
Here we have lots of lovely stockings, which have been selling well. The stockings that you can see on the right of the photo have been selling like hot cakes as they are not too large therefore do not take a lot of filling so are the perfect size for giving to friends.
I love mulled wine or vin chaud as it is called here in France and have been using these jars when making up gift baskets.
It is so easy to make as all you need to do is mix 10 teaspoons of the spices wih a bottle of red wine and 400 mls of orange juice. Add a few slices of fresh orange and heat until hot.
Strain and serve. So very yummy and I love the spiced aroma, so very Christmasy....
These fabric hearts have also been selling well and we have some others on the way, which are made with gorgeous striped fabric and also have "noel" on the front of them.
My new Mathilde M stand, which contains lots of lovely perfumed objects including parfum d'ambiance and lots of beautiful smelling soaps.We are currently offering one of these as a gift to anyone that spends over 50 euros (exclud. postage).
Newly arrived are these gorgeous Marie Antoinette bags which I have filled to the brim with lots of lavender buds from Provence.
And some fabulous bags as seen on my mannequin, made from antique material on an antique sewing machine, but wil be telling you more about these and their fabulous creator later in the week...
........…à la prochaine!..
