I just got a basket full of wonderful FRENCH goodies from The French Basketeer, Andrea. I would love to keep every item tucked in the basket for myself, but Andrea sent them to StoneGable to give to you! So very kind of her!

Andrea has a beautiful french-infused blog, FRENCH BASKETEER. She lives in Southern California and spends time in Burgundy France each year. She brings a "little bit of French lifestyle to the United States"... which she shares with all of us in her stunning blog!

 She also is a co-author of MATIS LINENS a blog inspired out of a passion for vintage french fabrics! There you will find yards and yards of the most divine fabric and ideas... as well as a link to Le Magasin De Metis, their on-line Blogtique.

Romantic Home thought that Andrea and her French spin on Amerian life was so special that she was featured in an 8 page layout in their November 2011 issue!

 The title of the article is "Give Freely". And that is just what Andrea did! In the article she shares how to wash burlap to look like gorgeous vintage nubby grain sack, how to make a stencil and add graphics to burlap , how to make wonderfully thoughtful Christmas gifts and many other charming ideas! The styling and photography are absolutely stunning!

How thrilling that one of our own talented creative bloggers has had such great success! We all share in your excitement and happiness!
