A French inspired give away

August 5th was a year since my first post hit blog land and I still love to come here
to my little corner. It’s part of my daily routine now.

I wanted to celebrate this with a little give away, but back then I was in Spain….

After the holidays real life got in the way….

So when I was in France 3 weeks ago, I bought some little items….

Pour la maison….

Just to say
** Thank You **
to all of you who come here to read my posts!

Since I’m a big fan of talking, I would like you to talk to me…

All you have to do is leave me a comment,
and I would love to hear from you silent readers as well,
tell me whatever you like to share about yourself….

 So hit that comment button,
or if you prefer, send me an email, daydreamliving@gmail.com.

It’s open world wide,
you don’t have to spread the word around, but if you want that’s ok….
you see, it’s only for the people who really come here and enjoy reading this blog…..

You don’t have to be a follower,
but if you want to read Daydream Living on a regular basis,

So what am I giving away?

A wooden heart, with the word cuisine {kitchen in French}.

Two little grey hearts with the word bonheur {happiness in French}, with a peg on the back.

And a pink savon de Marseille, {a lovely French bar of soap}.

I will choose someone old school style on
October the 5th….

The day my little blog exists one year and two months…

* This give away is now closed *


By the way….

* Have you seen that the Blog of the Week is back on the right side?

This time it’s my fellow Amsterdam girl, who now lives in Canada.

    Ha Maureen
    Gefeliciteerd met een jaar lang bloggen! Wat een heerlijk wereldje hé! Ik zou het niet meer kunnen missen.
    Wat een leuke giveaway heb je zeg!! oooh marseille zeep ik zie het zo hier en daar liggen op de blogs en denk dan wat zal dat heerlijk ruiken. Zelf heb ik nog nooit een stuk in de handen gehad.
    Ik doe dan ook graag mee hoor en plaats een link op mijn site.
    Fijne dag

    Hi Maureen,
    Yes, congratulations on your blog anniversary. A year and change went by really fast. Lets see, something about myself…I’m a huge Lego fan, almost bigger than my kids! I like to make mini movies, with the Lego figures walking about in a made up scene. How’s that for a fact you didn’t know about me? :)
    Anyway, I would love to be given a chance to win in your giveaway!

    What a gorgeous giveaway! I absolutely love those greys and gentle colours. So gorgeous!! And blogging for one year and two months?! Yay for you!!!!

    Am I allowed to enter from England? If I am then please will you enter me for a chance to win these goodies?

    How funny that the other Maureen likes Legos. My 12 year old was just telling me about someone who built a car to scale from Legos for Lego City in Florida. My oldest son loved Legos when he was little. Now he’s all about music and friends — he’ll be 16 on October 3rd. Don’t sign me up for the giveaway. I’ve already won a few times and to date, none of the packages have arrived. The mail system here is really, really corrupt. Folks working there see a box coming in from a foreign country and they just take it for themselves. I’ve been here 17 years and have had so many gifts lost or taken — and not a dang thing we can do about it. Very frustrating! Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

    Hi lieve Maureen, wat een verrassing dat creJJtion blog of the week is! Heel leuk, ik ben helemaal vereerd!

    En dan nu de geweldige give away! Maar hoe geweldig ik het pakketje ook vindt; je hebt al zoveel liefs mijn kant op gestuurd dat ik het anderen gun om jouw heerlijk pakket te winnen.

    Liefs uit Vancouver!

    This is such a sweet giveaway, Maureen. And since it is from France…all the more special!!

    If you read my blog you know I am an open book! lol. So it’s hard to tell you something about myself that you don’t already know! But please do drop my name in the hat and and thank you for such a generous giveaway!


    Happy Anniversary on your blog!!

    Hi Maureen, congratulations on your 1st anniversary! What a delightful giveaway!

    mmm what shall I tell you….my favourite perfume is Hermes 24 Faubourg and I hate housework! Will that do? Thankyou for visiting, my lovely little Dutch friend, and have a great week. Hope you are having lovely weather as we are? Love Linda x

    Hi Maureen. Oh, I just love anything French, and your little goodies are just so cute! Please may I be included in your giveaway. Thank you! What can I tell you? Well, I’ll copy Linda over at flowers on my table, and tell you that my favourite perfume is The One by Dolce & Gabbanna!

    Congratulations on your blog anniversary. My first anniversary was on September 1st too, so I think I understand what it means, the sort of achievement. And wow, you’ve done pretty well with more than 200 followers already – I being a “midget” of only 50 can only feel envy :-) – and it has always been real nice to read your Posts, so now it would be even nicer to receive a gift for nothing more than doing something pleasurable.
    PS: I go now to check your blog of the week. I hadn’t noticed before. Thanks.

    Congratulations on your blog anniversary. I think your blog is a special place and I love to come here and read your words. What pretty things you have chosen for your giveaway. Take care.

    Hey Maureen, ik kom heel graag even langs om bij te lezen op je blog. Er straalt altijd een zekere rust van uit. Elke blog heeft zo z’n eigen sfeer vind ik, zal wel de dame of heer achter de blog zijn die dat in de hand heeft. Ik wil je zeggen: dit vind ik een echte gezellige blog! Ik herinner me nu je mailtje enne OK hoor! Ik wou er nog op reageren en besef nu dat ik dat nooit deed, foei, foei, foei aan mezelf!!!!
    Ik vind je kadootjes heel erg leuk maar ik gun ze een ander. Eigenlijk geniet ik al van het zien van de leuke spulletjes die her en der weggegeven worden en ik kom gewoon nooit op zulke mooie leuke dingetjes uit en daardoor lukt het me niet een leuke giveaway te organiseren. Dus heb ik besloten niet meer aan giveaways mee te doen maar die iemand anders te gunnen en gewoon te genieten van blogs. Oeps, 1 uitzondering, de supergiveaway die nu de ronde doet gewoon omdat ik zoveel van de herfst hou.
    Wat een epistel hé?
    Nou, proficiat met je 1 jaar en 2 maand bloggen, blijf bloggen en ik kom graag langs!
    Het blog van de week item vind ik ook een super vondst! Ik ging al eens vlug langs bij Maaike en waw, wat een zin in haken heb ik plots gekregen ;-)

    It seems like I’ve been packing forever. But there is hopefully an end in sight. I’m glad to get a little blog reading in while I rest a bit! Happy Blogoversary.

  19. Glynis

    I’ve been a silent reader for a while…but no longer!
    Happy blogoversary and what a lovely giveaway. Something about myself – I have a real dislike of buttons, just the mere thought of them makes me gag (especially loose buttons). However, chocolate buttons, now that’s another story!

  20. Francesca Muir

    What a lovely bundle of things Maureen – the something that I share about me is the fact that the colours of your French goodies is the colour scheme of my kitchen!
