Me oh my! What a wonderful treat I had when I attended blogger and author Sharon Santoni’s talk today at the High Hampton Inn in Cashiers, North Carolina. She spoke on two topics: her recent book My Stylish French Girlfriends and arranging flowers—and her enthusiasm and elegant style inspired us all. Sharon has an ease that makes people believe that they can try something new and exciting—and her British accent helps the cause. Earlier that morning she had gathered flowers from local gardens, and she used those flowers to demonstrate how to assemble lovely, natural arrangements in multiple silver containers for simple but elegant dinners.
Sharon also gave us insight into how she found her lovely French farm house…and a few lessons on working with real estate agents in France (who apparently have a bit more complicated way of finding the perfect home for the buyer). I have a little stylish gift for some lucky reader today—an autographed copy of Sharon’s book. All you have to do is leave a comment below, and for another chance to win, post it on your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter feed (make sure to let me know you did it). How easy is that! You have until midnight on Wednesday July 13th to enter. I will announce the winner on Friday July, 15th. Good Luck!
