Thanks to my parents I learned the importance of investing in quality cookware, because it lasts forever if you take care of it. If you’re just beginning your collection, the Le Creuset Factory to Table Sale is a great place to start. You can find Le Creuset classics for up to 50% off, which is a pretty incredible deal. I wanted to share my Le Creuset Factory to Table Sale picks that you can shop through April 19th.
One of my favorite things about being in someone’s home is looking through their collection of books, usually amassed over many years. When I moved to Paris, I had to leave most of my books at home in Dallas due to weight restrictions. One day I’ll be reunited with my collection of books. This morning I was flipping through some of the books here and started thinking about my favorite coffee table books about France.
I’m very excited to introduce The Print Shop, a new addition to La Porte Bonheur that features a selection of Paris and Normandy prints. I love taking photos and enjoy sharing them both here and on Instagram. I’m thrilled that now you all will be able to have them in your homes.
Now more than ever, I think Valentine’s Day should be less about grand gestures and more about doing heartfelt things to honor the people you love, whether that’s a friend, a family member, a partner, or yourself. I created this list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for Francophiles last year and updated it this year. There’s a little something for everyone – I think these French-inspired gifts (all available online) would make the day extra special!
I’m thrilled to announce that the second Bouquinistes Auction is now live! The second auction is bigger than the first and includes more items from more bouquinistes in order to try to increase our impact. Your support is making a huge impact in the bouquinistes’ lives and I can’t thank you enough.
