Giveaway: Handprinted towels from La Marquis de anges

Happy Friday everyone! Allow me to present (excitedly, of course) this weekends giveaway from La Marquise des anges .
The talented and kind Sabine is a designer living in France. Her blog is full of gorgeous photos from the French countryside and her shop is stocked with a variety of embellished, hand stamped kitchenware, shirts and other various items. One of which is a "Fresh writing slate" that I simply adore.
Sabine, (did I mention this is one of the kindest people ever?) is giving away, to one very lucky Down and Out Chic reader, one of the following towels...
This simple, sweet imagery would add a soft touch to any kitchen.
TWEET TWEET hand printed vintage hand towel
I really like the combination of the birds against the multi colored stripes.
Garden Bird Hand printed Towel
Wouldn't this be perfect to accompany you on your first summer picnic?
Cerise hand printed towel
Sweet flowers hand printed on vintage cotton...very shabby chic.
Old China hand printed French vintage hand towel
via La Marquis de anges
These are practical, machine washable, and totally unique. If you like the towels, I'm pretty sure you'll love Sabine's aprons.
How to enter?
1. You must be a "follower" of Down and Out Chic (giveaways are a thank you to my readers...if you're a new reader, great! Just let me know).
2. Tell me which towel you'd choose if you won and/or drop by La Marquis de anges and tell me what you think of this cute French atelier.
3. Leave your comment here...easy peasy.
Good luck to you and, as always, thanks for reading!

Aww jeez! I think I would pick the first towel featured- the white with red detail and the two birds in the lower corner. It's simply precious!

Marilyn said...

My love for la marquise des anges knows no bounds. Her etsy shop is beautiful, her blog is beautiful. I am currently lusting after the slate board, which, I may get eventually, or something of its ilk. Anyway, my tea towel of choice is Garden Bird, because it would best match my kitchen, but I also love the noisette.

Anne @ The City Sage said...

What a great giveaway--you're too kind to us! The tweet tweet towel is my fave and would look great in my grey kitchen. And I love the half apron in her shop--it's so sweet and stylish!

A.Mountain.Bride said...

oooo I love these. The AUBERGINE is my favorite because of the colors! I always love bright yellows and greens in the kitchen space. Just lovely!

Thanks your great postings... I can't get over the first towel with the birds and hearts. My husband refers to our house as our "nest" all of the time - so it has started a love of birds in the house.

La Marquise des anges said...
