So here I am heading home after my week of book tour and speaking engagements…… and I have to tell you that if you want to know what it feels like to be treated like a princess, then go on a book tour!
I have been bowled over by the kindness and the warm welcome I received in Dallas and in Omaha.
Never has the cultural difference between the States and France been more apparent to me, as the warmth and friendliness of my new american friends made everything so easy. In particular at Lauritzen Gardens where I spoke yesterday and where I was amazed to watch the army of staff and volunteers come together to organise the Spring Luncheon in an atmosphere that was fun, friendly and super efficient.
While signing books I also enjoyed telling people about My Stylish French Box , and showing them first hand what the February box looked like, and giving them hints as to the contents of the imminent May box.
And today I am also happy to announce the winner of our giveaway:
Rié Moratto of
Congratulations Rié, please get in touch by email here, and we will be very happy to send you a complimentary box in early May.
The theme of our May box is roses and gardens, and without wishing to spoil the pleasure for those of you who love to unwrap surprise gifts, I can tell you that the May box will contain our very first item custom-made for the box, and that you will also receive something to make your house smell divine as well as objects that will simply be pretty in your home.
The May box will be prepared and shipped at the end of April and there are still a couple of boxes available, but not many! As you know, the boxes are limited edition and the May box has almost sold out now.
If you want to put in an order for yourself, for a girlfriend or sister, or if you’d like to sign up for the year ahead, then just pop over to My Stylish French Box and follow the instructions to purchase or subscribe.
I’m on my way home now and eager to see how my garden has changed in just one week, because of course Spring is the time when the garden gets pretty excited and seems to grow each day.
I’ll take a day to turn myself around and by the weekend it will be back to business as usual.
And finally, thank you so much to everyone who reads the blog and who turned up to see me in Dallas and in Omaha. It was lovely to put faces to names. I never cease to be amazed at how much the blog has changed and enriched my life.
