Welcome to TSLL’s 5th Annual French Week & the First Giveaway!

Aug 09, 2020

Welcome to French Week. A week many of readers along, with myself, have been eager to begin.

Do you have a glass of rosé handy? Perhaps a seasonal, simple French cuisine inspired meal at the tip of your tastebuds you cannot wait to try? I know I do. Regardless of the year, as you might imagine, French cuisine is always dancing about in my tastebuds’ dreams and as soon as summer arrives, rosé is my primary wine of choice.

Dreams of Provence immediately begin dancing about in my mind’s eye when I look at Inslee’s illustration above and with each sip of a French rosé wherever I might be in the world as I enjoy it. So while we might be enjoying our rosé outside of the terra firma of France, we certainly can raise a glass and toast santé wherever we might find ourselves this August.

To that end, I wanted to begin French Week with a giveaway that invites us to dine and enjoy ourselves with food and wine and wonderful friends and family. La Maison Jean-Vir is a home interiors company nestled into Saint-Pée-Sur-Nivelle which is in the SW corner of France near the Atlantic and in proximity to the border with Spain.

Founded in 1981, and while based in France, their designs are entirely inspired by the nearby Basque country while the linens are made in Portugal, a country known for its textile tradition. With a variety of different treatments available for their home and upholstery linens, each one provides long-lasting linen, thanks to anti-stain and water repellent treatments.

Maison Jean-Vier sells traditional cotton tablecloths, oilcloth and coated tablecloth in a vast assortment of different designs and brilliant colors. Personally, I am drawn to the myriad options of stripes (surprise, surprise! ;)).

One lucky reader will win one of their tablecloths, and good news – if you don’t want to wait to see if you will win the giveaway, they are currently having a sale. I highly recommend popping on over to their site and doing some shopping as they ship internationally.

~Pampelune Encre tablecloth~

But what would a beautiful tablecloth and the food prepared and presented upon it be without wine glasses? 😉

Included in this giveaway for one lucky reader (they will receive both one tablecloth AND . . . ) a pair of La Rochere bistrot (balloon) wine glasses. Le ballon “typique” des comptoirs de bistrot et cafés Parisiens.

~La Rochere Bistrot

Since 1475, more than 500 years ago, La Rochere has been making glassware in France, and their guiding premise spoke to me immediately as it aligned with living simply luxuriously beautifully:

“[La Rochere] does not consider daily life to be a meaningless notion, but rather filled with heritage, emotions and passion to accompany key occasions and small moments of happiness.”

You can shop all of La Rochere’s collections directly on their online shop or find them sold from many different businesses worldwide – Wayfair, Amazon, Macy’s, and Bed, Bath & Beyond.

The TSLL winner of the giveaway will be able to choose their own tablecloth (1) that is lesser than 100 Euros in regular value/price and win a pair of La Rochere Bistrot wine glasses. All of the tablecloths seen above and below fall into this category, but there are many more, so be sure to peruse. Once you know which tablecloth you would prefer, leave your comment in the comment section on this post with the specific name and link to the direct page if possible.

And now to the giveaway.

How to Enter:

  • Leave a comment below including your first name (your email should already be associated with your comment, and I can view it on my dashboard, but it won’t be shared publicly).
  • In your comment, share which tablecloth you would prefer that is less than 100 Euros in regular value/price. Shop/Peruse the website here.
  • Enter by Saturday August 15th at 8pm Pacific Time.
  • Bonne chance!

    A new Netflix French show to share “Call My Agent” a must see been binging all weekend…love it

Enjoying a nice chilling glass of wine, having the most intellectual
    Conversation with friends. I still can dream …
    Je suppose que c’est la vie pour l’instant

    Sonia

  73. Sooo excited for French Week! I believe it was your blogging and podcasts on France that led me to find you in the first place! 😊 I love so many of them but the Espelette Argile would be exceptionally pretty! Thanks so much for our virtual trip to France!

  78. Such beautiful giveaways for the start of French Week! I particularly love 4S Ramages Mangue.
    Merci. Sabine

  79. There is something so classic about the Pampelune. I love the look of a French table, not as formal and with an ease that’s deceptively hard to emulate.

  80. Bonjour, Shannon! You do the best give aways. These tablecloths are beautiful and when I look at my favorite — the golden 4S Ramages Mangue — I think how perfect it would look in our kitchen, especially on a typical cool, foggy Pacific NW morning when I crave some sunshine. I’m looking forward to this week so much — it’s been a long & wearying summer so far & I think we all need & deserve a touch of France to cheer us up. Thank you!

  81. Hi Shannon,
    I have bought and read so many of your book recommendations. You are truly a great source for books, clothing, recipes and anything French! Thank you for all the hard work that goes into each blog, podcast and Vodcast – I so enjoy it all. Yay – and now French week – trop amusant!

    I would love the Donibane Ocean tablecloth if my name is picked.

    Thanks!

  82. Hello!
    Thank you so much for such a wonderful blog that focuses on the importance of living our best lives while enjoying the simple things in life.

    Have a wonderful week.

  83. So excited for French Week – I think it is my favorite! Would absolutely love a Ustaritz Terracotta tablecloth to go with my terracotta kitchen floor! Thank you as always 🙂

  84. So very excited for french week! Wow such beautiful linens. I absolutely love the brilliant Ramages Mangue. Such a gorgeous mango color! Looking forward to all you have in store for the week!

  86. Merci for transporting me back to France! I know the Ainhoa Reglisse table linen would set the stage for a delightful garden event.

  87. Sumbilla Multicolor is perfect for my back yard. It’s a casual spot that expresses my personality (there’s a Buddha meditating, and also a happy hedgehog to greet you). Thank you for giving us this opportunity to both discover a new vendor and perhaps win a lovely prize. As if the blog wasn’t prize enough…..

  88. BONJOUR!! I am so excited for French Week….exactly what my life needs right now. To celebrate the french week, I finally treated myself to a year subscription with no ads! I am officially after many years, both books and endless podcasts….a member of the blog! After exploring the beautiful linens, I have finally settled on St. Jean De Lux Blanc…..simple and traditional. However, I can’t lie that my eye appreciates Espelette Editeur— takes me to an umbrella at the seaside! I look forward to the week ahead! Merci Beaucoup!

  89. Hi Shannon. I have recently discovered your page and really enjoy everything that you share with your readers. i have never been to France but hope that one day i will have the chance to visit. i love the wine glasses and love the Ustaritz Vert Pin Green. the colors bring to mind happy thoughts and a sense of calmness.

  92. Shannon,
    Thank you for offering such a wonderful giveaway. Your posts have been very inspiring on how to bring elegance into my home, however simple it may be. The Donibane Ocean tablecloth is very pretty.

    Thank you.

  93. Oh these look so classic and French. I hope to travel to Portugal in the next few years and had no idea they were known for their textiles. Thanks for sharing such good info!

  94. Hi Shannon,
    I travelled to basque country last year! The Ustaritz Vert table cloth reminds me of some of the colors I saw there. Such a beautiful place! I love French Week!!! ⚜️ 🇫🇷

  95. Hi Shannon, this is Karen. Oh, French Week! I love the table linen Bilbatu Vagues Bleu. I can see my table setting now with my wines glasses filled with a wonderful wine from Provence.

  96. French Week! What a respite during this crazy time. Thank you, Shannon, for helping to keep our minds off of some of the misery in the world.
    I’m so excited about this giveaway as I purchased the last and only tea towel several years ago in a local shop that matches the St Jean de Luz Blanc 180 x 180 cm tablecloth! https://www.jean-vier.com/en/nappe/253-st-jean-de-luz-nappe-st-jean-de-luz-blanc.html This is just what I have been looking for. Fingers crossed!
    Merci!
    Heather

  97. Hi Shannon! So thrilled my first french week. I do not have any tablecloths, and this giveaway makes me realize I’m missing out. My dining table would love the Espellette Argile Brown tablecloth. Cheers, and thanks for all you do! – Adel

  98. Bonjour, Lauren here! I love the Tablecloth Brown – Espelette Argile. Joyeux French Week!

  99. Whete did the time go?Another French week and such a lovely giveaway Shannon. A fine crisp tablecloth sets the tone for something delightful whether it is just an apéritif with canapés or a full blown meal of several courses. If I were lucky enough I would choose the Ustaritz terracotta as it would match a terracotta wall in my kitchen. Thank you for such a generous offer😊

  100. I am delighted that French Week is again upon us! A lovely giveaway, I particularly like Tablecloth Ainhoa Atlantic! Perfect for Florida, where I live.

  101. Hello!
    What a beautiful and generous giveaway! Thank you for this week’s posts, Shannon; they have been much anticipated all summer! French Week is decidedly one of the best weeks of the summer and a wonderful antidote to the slight sadness comes with August and the realization that summer is soon coming to a close.
    I love the 45 Ramages Mangue (yellow) tablecloth. It reminds me of Provence and long and leisurely lunches on the terrace. 🙂

    https://www.jean-vier.com/en/nappe/2919-bilbatu-nappe-ramages-bilbatu-mangue.html

  102. Wow what a great tablecloth! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a fabulous item! I don’t know why but I did not know that there was an add free subscription to your blog. Humm something to think about this week.
    I think if I won the tablecloth I would choose would be the White Berrain Fusain. It is a nice understated color but elegant.
    Thank you for the chance to win!

  103. Enjoying French Week so much this year – even more than usual probably because of being quarantined for so very long. A week to read and spend dreaming of being somewhere else 🙂 Your giveaways are always special and I like the tablecloth St Jean de Luz Blanc. The glasses are also beautiful.
    Thanks for such a cheerful week

  104. I love your blog and have just subscribed. I have bought a number of things you recommend and having both a French and British focus during the year is an absolute bonus. Also coincidentally I visited Bend last year as a result of my husbands commitments which was one of my favorite trips. If I were lucky enough to win, I would be very grateful for the Bilbatu Hortensias Reglisse (Black and White Hydrangea) tablecoth.

  105. Meals just seem extra special when you are surrounded by a lovely table setting, thanks for reminding us of these little luxuries!

  106. Bonjour! I’ve been looking forward to French week 😊 The Tablecloth Red Ustaritz Terracotta is beautiful.

  107. Waking up this am in rural France (living here for almost 3 years after being in Bend for over 30 years) it’s perfect weather to put on my 100 Stars robe (I love it!!). My choice of a table cloth would be Tablecloth Red
    Pampelune Tapas
    and even if I were to win, I plan to buy from the company. Thank you for turning all of us on to such wonderful things, especially right now when we can’t go shopping much. Merci.

  108. Bonjour- J’aime beaucoup le Coated tablecloth in
    Sumbilla MULTICOLOR! C’est très jolie! 😁

    Merci!
    Brenda

  109. Hello Shannon,

    This giveaway is so much fun and a real treat! The yellow 4s Ramages Mangue ( 170×250) would be perfect for my kitchen.

    Thanks for the opportunity! 😁

  110. COU COU!
    The French week post spoke to my heart and is setting the tone of fond memories for my day. I studied in Versailles and Evian for 6 weeks. It definitely was the best gift my parents gave me for a lifetime. I have been a dedicated Francophile ever since and went on to study and teach French. The Espelette Paon would complement my freshly stained deck but most of all it would put me in a state of reverie. We had the good fortune to stay a week near Isle sur Sorgue in 2007. This tablecloth would help me relive those precious dining moments, especially during this dire time. MERCI Millefois! Joann

  111. Hi Shannon, I just discovered your podcasts this year, and have devoured all starting from the beginning! I am currently up to date. Thank you for your inspiring posts! Reading your second book currently. I love the Espelette Argile tablecloth.

  112. Hello Shannon.
    The “Tablecloth Green-Ustaritz Vert pin” is my favorite.
    I’m really enjoing this french week. Can’t wait to travel to France for the first time.

  113. Dear Shannon,
    Thank you so much for French week and for this fabulous giveaway. It is so hard to select one pattern as the designs are all lovely, but, if I won, I would choose St Jean de Luz blanc.
    Merci beaucoup!
    Best wishes,
    Anne

  114. Having spent the last 7 Septembers in Provence, I am sad not to be going this September. However, I am trying to focus on my gratitude for the last 7 Septembers there and French Week is certainly helping me do just that. Thank you, Shannon!
    After perusing the website, I have fallen for all things “Bilbatu vagues bleu!”

  115. Bonjour! The Black and White Pampelune Encre definitely speaks to me and will be perfect for my dinner parties. Thank you for French Week. I really do live and breathe everything French. I look forward to your newsletter each week, which always makes me feel so good. Merci.

  116. I love the simplicity of the St Jean de Luz Blanc tablecloth. Merci for the opportunity! Cheers, Allison

  117. Bonjour! It’s been such a busy week for me getting ready to teach in a whole new way… so happy for French Week to bring me some joy and relief!
    The Bilbatu Hortensias Reglisse is lovely to me.
    Have a good school year and stay safe,

  118. Hi Shannon, I’d love to celebrate a French meal with friends with a table set with the lovely Rampages Mangue print table linen! Oh La La! Merci!

  119. Beautiful and well curated selection of articles. I loved the St Jean de Luz Blanc tablecloth. Perfect for every ocassion.

  120. I’m so happy for French week! In the midst of so much chaos and not being able to travel, it’s like a breath of fresh air. I am so thankful you are bringing a little bit of France to us! I would love the Ustaritz Terracotta tablecloth to freshen up my dining room table. Looking forward to learning more about French week! 🙂

  121. French Week is a treat in itself, so this giveaway is icing on the cake. There’s such grace to a meal when it’s presented upon a simply elegant tablecloth. I can envision one on the St. Jean de Luz Blanc along with my husband and I enjoying our wine in the La Rochere Bistrot set. Merci beaucoup for this unique opportunity.

  122. Oh my! what beautiful linens. My choice would be Bilbatu Vagues Bleu. Thank you so much for this chance to own one.

  123. I would love to gift my mom the Tablecloth Black with the hydrangea pattern (Bilbatu Hortensias Reglisse, €89.00). Not only is her last name Flores (which means flowers in Spanish), but she’s planning on finally purchasing a new home at the end of this year, which she richly deserves after sacrificing so much during our childhood years. I’d love to see this cloth on a brand new dining table that we can all gather around.

  124. My favorite is Bilbatu Ramages Mangu. Such a cheerful cloth. Than you Shannon for this fantastic giveaway.

  125. What beautiful linens! I would choose the cheery yellow table cloth (Bilbatu Ramages Mangue) as it reminds me of my mom.
