Celebrating the Winner of our February GIVEAWAY



FrenchGardenHouse is thrilled to celebrate the winner of our February GIVEAWAY, Ginger Valdes of San Antonio, Texas!

Ginger’s name was selected yesterday in a random drawing as the winner of the Gift Certificate for FrenchGardenHouse.com in the amount of $100.00.



Congratulations from the FrenchGardenHouse family to Ginger Valdes,the winner of the FrenchGardenHouse Gift Certificate. We hope that you will choose something from our collection that will give you great joy, and will be a heirloom treasure in your family for many generations to come.

For all of you who asked for a different picture of me, here it is! I’m not a huge fan of photos of moi…. this one was taken by my friend Christine Rose Elle, and if anyone can make me look good, it is Christine.


Please stay tuned for the next wonderful Giveaway, launching on the blog Friday, March 3d!  I so appreciate your interest in reading, as well as taking the time to comment. This is the reason I blog, to connect with all of you, to hear about your lives, what you value, what you care about, and how I can help you to create a home you adore.


Your home should reflect the way you live, your passions, and evolve with your personal style.



Shopping for antiques for your home should be fun! Creating a space surrounded by beautiful things you love is one of the best ways to express your own style and improve your quality of life.


Thank you for sharing bits of yourself with all of us here!

    Lidy! I’m so excited to see that I won! Merci beaucoup !! Let’s shop!

    1. So excited for you Ginger!! I hope you find something special.

    Congrats to Ginger on your giveaway!

    I appreciate and enjoy each of your posts, which give me fresh, new ideas. My home has definitely evolved through many years and transitions to arrive with what I consider my own style. I learned some time ago, as you have said, “that your home should reflect the way you live”. I hope my home reflects my sense of ‘joie de vivre’.

    Such a pretty portrait of you! It will work perfectly as a back jacket for a (I’m hopeful!) future book on decorating one’s home with a French touch.

    Regards, Wrenda

    1. Thank you Wrenda. The photo definitely improved after Christine did some photoshop magic.

      I am sure that your home reflects your sense of ‘joie de vivre’, isn’t that the most important part,
      that our homes reflect our taste and loves, and also that it is the place we make memories with
      those we love?

    Even if I don’t win the gift card I still want to tell you how much fun I have every single time I go to your site. When I need a dose of “GORGEOUS” to brighten my day I know I can count on you to provide it!

    Thanks, Karen in Cincinnati

    1. Thank you so very very much Karen! I love that…and appreciate it so very much. There will be another “give away” starting on Friday, so stay tuned!

  5. Congratulations to Ginger. Lidy, your photo is beautiful. You look very “hip”. 🙂

    1. Thank you Nancy…I often don’t feel too “hip” when surrounded by all these gorgeous young things in my blogging community…so your compliment
      made me smile.

    1. Thank you Joan, I appreciate your reading, and taking the time to leave a comment! Hope you are having a beautiful week!

  6. You look beautiful, Lidy – love the picture and I can always count on beauty in your images as well. Adore the tablesetting! Happy Wednesday, my friend!

  7. My interactions with the FrenchGardenHouse have been nothing less than positive. Lidy consistently welcomes and patiently answers any and all of my questions precisely, items are well packaged and shipped to accommodate my schedule. So far my purchases have surpassed the descriptions. I look forward with confidence to our continued relationship!

    1. Wendy, you are so very kind. It is because of clients {and blog readers!} like you that I love what I do. Thank you!

  8. Lidy, you are just as gorgeous as the rooms and pretty things you share.

    It’s so sweet of you to do a give away. Yay for Ginger. 🙂

  9. Julie Watson

    Yay for Ginger!!! I’m sure she will have no trouble finding an heirloom treasure from FGH’s outstanding collection.
    I love the photo of you, Lidy. You have such beautiful eyes! I’m sure they reflect the lovely light within.
    Those pastel ruffled tulips at the beginning of this post are a breath of Spring. 🙂

    Dear Lidy,
    I love all things French, and when I saw an ad for your online store in my Victoria magazine, I had to look. I finally found something I had been looking for, and just received today in mail. A beautiful box adorned with store name, lux ribbon and sachet of lavender to boot. All such nice touches … not to mention the antique brass presse papier-mâché lady’s hand (with key). So lovely on my desk.

    1. Kerrie, thank you so much! I am so happy that the lady’s hand has found a lovely home!
