Francophile Friday: Macarons Stripe You Lucky

ink & watercolour illustration, 7" x 8.75" [18 x 22.5cm] ACQUIRE PRINTS
Firstly, I must apologise.  My hand-engraved invitation to Hugh to announce the winners of my giveaway went astray.  Never hire a chicken to do a carrier pigeon's job.  As a result, there's no opening number ~ no singing and dancing or sailing in on a highwire {the latter is probably for the better, given he's a bit accident-prone when airborne}.  But perhaps I can distract you from your disappointment with some macarons and tea.  And this picture of Ella wearing the hat we used to draw the names.

Without further ado, here are the winners of my Paris postcard sets, in reverse alphabetical order to keep us on our ballet pointes:  Susan Campisi, Pop Culture Nerd, Petrea Burchard, Ms M, mise, the GyPsY, Favourite Vintage Finds, Cafe Pasadena, altadenahiker.

Felicitations and congratulations to those who bribed Ella best had their luckiest vibes on!  Please contact me via shellsherree[!at]gmail.com to advise/confirm your address, and I'll have your postcards on their way ~ enjoy!

Thank you so much for your lovely comments and friendship.  As the sun sets on my 3rd blogoversary celebrations, I shall be taking a little break to recharge my blogging batteries.  But first, please stay a while.  We shall graze on this bottomless plate of macarons and drink from these bottomless striped teacups, or those bottomless rose-coloured glasses, filled with your beverage of choice.  And on that note...

Happy Francophile Friday to you. À bientôt!
