 French Essence ~  Ambience, Beauty, and Style in Provence
By Vicki Archer

I was so excited to receive this beautiful book from fellow blogger, Vicki Archer.  Talented doesn't begin to describe Vicki.  This book is the epitome of beauty, with stunning images on each page.

I am going to have to admit that I was moved greatly by this book. Vicki put her heart and soul, along with her love of life and her surroundings into this work.  She truly has a connection to France, and you will feel this connection as your read and admire the photographs on every page.

Vicki also authors the very popular blog, French Essencewhere she writes about her extensive travels and personal life. In addition to her blog, Vicki also shares photographs and information on her website hereTo purchase your copy of this beautiful book visit here.  Photography is by gifted photographer Carla Coulson.

Thank you, Vicki for such a wonderful giveaway, and for sharing your life so beautifully.   ENJOY these images!

Some Christmas images from the book.

I hope that you will enjoy your own copy of French Essence.

See you soon,
