Bastille Day Giveaway!!!


Bastille Day is the French national holiday which commemorates the "storming of the Bastille" - the day when the oppressed French people rose up and captured the Bastille fortress/prison from the King's forces. This became a symbol of the French Revolution which is celebrated on July 14th every year in France and worldwide.

My Aunt Diane is a collector/seller of French Revolution stuff - and since Tuesday is Bastille Day, she has agreed to provide some prizes for a Bastille Day giveaway. In the picture above you will see (clockwise from left): Bastille Day key chain with mirrored back, "Victors of the Bastille" button, Storming the Bastille button, and Smiley wearing a Liberty Cap button. In order to enter the giveaway, simply comment on this post. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN YOUR COMMENT for your chance to win these adorable prizes. This is simply so I can notify you if you win.

Aunt Diane (and my cousin Cristina) are also great artists themselves. They have a whole array of hand-crafted jewelry - including cute sterling guillotine earrings and necklaces. Check out their Ebay store by clicking on the picture below.


Diane and Cristina also collect/sell POSTCARDS, PAPER-CUTTING ART, FABRICS and many other interesting items through their Ebay business. Please CHECK IT OUT.

And DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY by leaving your email address in the comments section. I will announce the winner on Bastille Day - Tuesday, July 14th.
