our august box and a giveaway

by Sarah Nusz

Time for our august box and a giveaway!! It finally feels like summer is here and I am happy to share with you all our August Box theme and a giveaway! This collection will ship in August and is curated around the theme of Summer in France – Été en France.

For me the word summer evokes warmth, long evenings, dinners with friends and most importantly family time. It is the moment in the year when we are fortunate to have all the family with us for a week or two or three, and with them a trail of friends, and dogs, and music and happy meals together. And of course now that we have our first grandchild, that family holiday is even more important.

It also means the moment of the year when we pretty much live outdoors. Spending time in the garden, picking from the potager, eating all our meals on the terrace or in the shade of a tree.

When putting together the August edition of our MFCH Subscription box, I curated a collection of items that I love to use. Somethings for you, some for your home, and some to share. As always I’m very excited about this new collection and I hope you love it too.

Such a lovely theme for this season’s box! My first time in France was a trip to Paris for my husband and my first anniversary. I was a summer bride. Paris came through with all its glory and fabulousness. Enjoy this summer season with your family (and newest member!) and furry friends. I’ll be enjoying mine outside, with my copy of My French Country Home. xx

It’s cold, wet and dreary here in regional Victoria, Australia. But your description of the Summer box has lifted the mood. I flow you on the socials and my favorite time is watching you unveil each box. I was lucky enough to get one as a gift from my husband after much prompting. I love it so much and would be thrilled to recieve another

We have just purchased a house in France. You inspire me with creativity. I would love some day to have a garden like yours. At the moment I have sprinkled seeds in new beds I have made, and already they are springing to life. I can’t wait for them to bloom. Carry on with all the good work and enjoy your Summer with friends and family.

i remember our summers in france when we lived there; every meal eaten outdoors, naps under a mirabelle plum tree to the sound of woodpeckers and cuckoos in the trees, candles lit outside in the balmy evenings…bliss.

Bonjour! I don’t do social media – unless you count email – and I don’t have much luck wining things 🙁 but I can’t help throwing my beret in the ring for a chance to win your August box. August was often a time we went over to France – after moving back to the US in 2012 – and an opportunity to reconnect with friends, my husband’s (French) family and a quiet Paris thanks to the tradition of ‘fermetures annuelles.’ This year is a little different – my husband is going solo to visit a cousin ailing from cancer. I have dogs and yes – a garden – to look after back home in Florida. Plus I really prefer the fall, when life is buzzing again in the French capital. (And I get a chance to were my boots and sweaters!)
But whether in France or in the US we also enjoy basically living outside – eating, playing (with dogs) gardening, reading. Our little imported marble lunch table is not as picturesque, or as big, as the one pictured in the magazine, but I do try for fresh cut flowers, even a few sprigs of dainty cherry tomatoes will sometimes have to do the job.
I miss France and would so love to receive an August box for inspiration and consolation for the summer season!

12juin22. Bonjour! Je viens de faire un trajet a travers la vallee du Skagit en Deux-Chevaux. La Citroen rouge d’une amie nous a transportes a une reunion et un repas sur l’ile Samish dans l’Etat de Washington. Nous avons parle de l’art, le sauvetage des refugies au Chambon-sur-Lignon pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, de Liz CHENEY [R. Wyoming] et son discours devant le comite qui investige les evenements du 6 janvier 2021, parmi d’autres sujets. J’y ai goute du riz noir chinois pour la premiere fois, et on nous a servi deux desserts succulents: un gateau a la rhubarbe et un gateau fait avec une farine d’amande, du chocolat noir francais, 5 blancs d’oeuf. Quel delice – – autant pour les plats que pour la conversation! Voila les actualites du Cercle Francais de Skagit Valley.

Am wondering if those peonies have any special meaning for you? They make me think of my mom and growing up in the Midwest in the US. We had several large plants in our yard. My favorite had huge white flowers with a few red petals right in the center. I once counted the number of petals on one flower…there were hundreds! After I moved to North Carolina and saw the price of them at flower markets I was shocked? So interesting the emotional connections we have to flowers! Thank you for an opportunity to win the box!

I follow you on Facebook and Instagram but I can’t resist an opportunity to sing the praises of MFCH. I live on the hot, windy prairie of Oklahoma in the US. There are very few trees and everything turns an ugly golden brown in August due to the dry parched land. Your website sweeps me away to France (I have never been out of the country) when I look at the beautiful photos and read the blog posts. I would love an opportunity for this giveaway (especially in August).

We have not had the pleasure of visiting France, but a long ago visit to Quebec is a treasured memory with my newlywed husband 47 years ago! We recently purchased an “As Is” house on a street named Brittany Drive and love getting inspiration from your site for French Country elements and design! As you mention, the garden is especially rewarding right now and finding just the right designs is challenging and fun. We are not able to visit your beautiful country right now, but c’est la vie, please consider my entry for your giveaway! Merci Beaucoup!

Such a lovely, happy prize, it would certainly cheer my cold, wet, blustery mid Winter day, down south at the tip of Afrique du Sud!

My recollections of France are of a long summer holiday spent with my entire family celebrating my parents’ Silver Wedding Anniversary. We travelled from Newhaven to Dieppe with our Peugeot convertible and drove through many towns and quaint villages to La Cote d’Azur. It was my most memorable holiday ever and still makes me smile when I recall the wonderful rich experience all those years ago in 1960!
I would treasure one of your delightful boxes celebrating summer in France as that would rekindle my memory of that very special holiday.
Best Regards, Marjorie.

I would love one of the MFCH boxes, the unveilings look so lovely. Summer is a great time of the year here in Canada too. Your patio looks like a fantastic place for alfresco dining…and oh that gorgeous garden! Love the picture of the peonies. I live vicariously through your posts, magazine, pictures and Instagram. In the dead of the Canadian winter I dream of France. Keep doing what you do.

Greetings! Would love to win one of your beautiful gift boxes. Your site interests me due to my French roots on my father’s side (Maiden name Perreault and mother took great care with my French version of Anne for a middle name). As I too only use Email, would love to be considered for a chance at the beautiful summer box.

Sharon, you are so generous to offer this luxurious box as a prize. I came across MFCH in 2020 and this gorgeous publication gave me a much needed diversion from the world of Covid. I’ve not missed an issue despite not being able to source MFCH in my Canadian city. So my mother buys my copy in her city 1.5 hours away and we both get to revel in each issue.
Should I win this exquisite prize, it will bring back treasured memories of visiting family in Esparron de Verdon in Provence. Thank you and I only use email.

Your wonderful virtual escape to fabulous France is simply a delight, especially for those who live on the other side of the world who may never get to experience the picturesque beauty of this amazing place. Many thanks to you for your delightful works and contribution of keeping the history and love of so many facinating things alive through your magazine which capture the magic of France…ahhh, maybe one day :} Fondly, Maggie Rose.

Summer is in full swing here in Connecticut. Rosé is my evening summer water this time of year. I keep trying new vineyards and sometimes you can pick a rosé by the label! I’ve been enjoying your MFCH box for over a year now and eagerly await their arrival. Never a disappointment! Enjoy your family time and merci for your fabulous postings and the beautiful French box.
A bientôt~Sally Bainbridge ♥️⚜️

Ahh Summer… fresh peaches, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, corn, and tomatoes. It is a time to be with family and friends, long walks, and fireflies. I always think of visiting my grandparents and getting to see all of our extended family when I was growing up. Summer makes good memories. It is a time to be free! A MFCH box would make any gathering special.
