One World One Heart 2011

This is the first time I've joined in One World One Heart, but as a completely new blogger two years ago, I found it a great way to begin to learn about and to 'meet' bloggers in this newfound blogland.So this February will begin my third year of blogging. If you are popping over as part of the OWOH event, welcome! Like many blogs, mine has become a patchwork of the different elements of my life:There's France, of course! We are a British family, living in the south of France. There's much to love about where we live, some puzzlement over cultural differences and expectations, a little frustration, and loads of excitement - I guess that my blog shows elements of all of that.
There's a love for vintage - French, British, American and worldwide heritage and memories.
There are memories of my family's past - the peacock Liberty print here belonged to my mum, who sadly died last year, and the fire fighter pyjamas were worn third and fourth-hand by both of our boys!
There are glimmers of silk and gold, in the beauty of nature, spirituality, faith and fine crafts.
And there's the desire to live a thrifty and non-consumerist life, for the good of the environment and our budget!
To show two sides of my blog, I have two elements in my gift for you this week. If one appeals more than the other, feel free to enter anyway, because I bet you'll be able to find someone you know (in person or in blogland) who would happily accept the other gift from you!
The first part of the gift is this copy of a French fashion newspaper, La Mode.
These beautiful ladies date from November 1898. Inside there are patterns, more fashions, and advertising. It's wonderful to look at, even if you don't read French! If you won it, I'd be perfectly happy for you to keep it as it is or to cut it up for crafts - either way, its beauty will be preserved.The second part of my gift to you is a modern French set of birthday candles. This reflects the family side of my blog - I think it would be fun to celebrate a family birthday in French, wherever you are in the world!So, please do enter and introduce yourself by leaving a comment, or, if we already know each other, do feel free to join in this little One World One Heart giveaway, and don't forget to spend some time this week visiting other OWOH bloggers in the same way!


I will announce the winner of these two gifts at the end of the OWOH event - February 17th. Please make sure that I'll be able to contact you by email if you are the winner!

Frog and Beef said...

Hello Floss,
thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I see you are in Toulouse, this is an area my husband (the Frog) knows as his brother has lived there the past 30+ years.
Thanks for the reality check, its is nice to know there are other less than perfect housewives out there. We took the name as a combination of a sort of twist on La Fontaine (fables) and the anglo/french nicknames for our countries. (But mais oui... you got it)
Oh PS please enter me into your draw too. Love the photos, the tomato support cum glass bauble holder is a good idea.

How wonderful! I love the vintage ladies, and the candles would be so much fun for my dear daughter's 17th birthday this year- she's taking French 3 and has filled our home with melodic conversation!

I hope you'll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten's 3 R's: I'm giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!

Hi Floss! I've joined (a little late, I admit!) OWOH 2011. So do pop across and join in on my Door Prize if you would like. But don't enter me for your draw - I don't think I'd use the candles, and I suspect there are many people who could do much more beautiful things with your Fashion paper. But good to see you - you led me to the OWOH site - thanks!!!

PS I'm now known as Fat Dormouse not just Dormouse...due to my weightloss blog Fat Dormouse Getting Thinner)

Hi,
How exciting to live in France. I have always loved this country, I guess that is because my granny was French.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Janet said...

A couple of lovely gifts. I live in the Yukon Territory in Canada, but grew up in Montreal so have some French experience :) My granddaughter attends French emmersion school so we could definitely use some French candles for her. Nice to meet you. You don't say what took you to France...just wondering.

Sherry Edwards said...

Hello Floss - or should that be bonjour! I've just read your post showing what your blog title means - very interesting, I always wondered if they had charity shops or the like in France.

I love your giveaway - I'm always on the look out for old French books as I'd love to use the pages in mixed media pieces - not sure I could bring myself to cut into La Mode though!

I hope you'll stop by and see my giveaways too. Sherry from England, UK

HELLO AND GREETINGS FROM OKLAHOMA,
I HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE BUT I AM IN LOVE WITH PARIS AND THE EIFFEL TOWER AND I DON'T MIND IF I SHAME MYSELF BY BEGGING, PLEADING, OR THROWING A HISSY FIT, WINK, TO GET SOME ONE, ANY ONE, ANY TIME TO SEND ME A POST CARD FROM PARIS. IT IS THEN LIKE A LITTLE PIECE OF ME HAS BEEN THERE.
MY FAMILY SAYS I WAS BORN AT THE WRONG TIME...NOT...BECAUSE GOD NAMED ME WHEN I WAS KNITTED IN MY MOTHERS WOMB...BUT I AM A TRUE VICTORIAN/ SHABBY CHIC AT HEART.
YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT WOULD MEAN TO ME TO OWN THAT NEWSPAPER WITH THOSE STYLES AND FRENCH BIRTHDAY CANDLES...I COULD SHOUT FOR JOY...IT SEEMS IF I WIN, I WOULD BE GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER. HAVE YOU SEEN AND SMELLED FRENCH LAVENDER.
LONG AFTER THE GIVE AWAY IS OVER AND I HAVE THE FRENCH VINTAGE NEWSPAPER IN MY TIGHT GRIPPED HANDS...WINK...ROLLING EYES....AND THE BIRTHDAY CANDLES BURNING FOR MY SON'S BIRTHDAY WHICH WAS 2/12/11...WINK...WINK....I SURE WANT TO BE FRIENDS. NO REALLY, THOUGH, ALL KIDDING ASIDE, FRIENDSHIP AND FAITH AND FAMILY ARE THE ONLY JEWELS IN LIFE.
IF THE WIDGET COMES UP I WILL FOLLOW YOUR BLOG AND I HOPE YOU WILL FOLLOW ME.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY.
HAVE A SUGAR SWEET DAY
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Floss, I am a Francophile, so I decided to visit all the French blogs first on this whirlwind OWOH tour. My French teacher in college told me that when French folks celebrate a birthday, they sing our Happy Birthday song in English! Is that true:)
I share your non-consumerism approach to life. I look forward to visiting your blog again.
