When we were putting together our May box, spring had sprung in France, and everywhere you looked little blossoms were dotting the trees, and there was that feeling of freshness in the air that only springtime can bring. We wanted to bring that feeling of spring in France to you through this box. As we chose each product, that vision came to life, and the result was a selection of gifts made from natural materials, many of which were created here in Normandy.
A candle and cameo by Carrière Frères: Produced in Normandy, these candles are made with the utmost in care and quality, perfumed with scents from Grasse and even using wicks that are adapted to burn best for each scent.
Hand cream and dry oil from Apicia: One of our favorite new finds, this line uses bee products to make their soothing, natural creams and oils, with an ethical focus on ensuring our own wellness as well as that of the planet.
A ring cup hand-crafted by Claire-Lise Thiriet: Handcrafted in her Normandy workshop, no two of these ring cups are alike. We love supporting local artists, especially ones who love their craft as much as Claire-Lise does!
This month’s original watercolor: Céline Chollet`has painted another set of her beautiful watercolor creations- you can read more about her here.
A string bag by FILT: String bags are all the rage this spring, and this one comes straight from the city of Caen on the coast of Normandy.
A white necklace: A touch of white completes any spring outfit, and this necklace was made exclusively for My Stylish French Box.
A hand-made wreath: Christelle Chevalier of Bord de Scene created this wreath using antique linens, book pages and antique engravings for a unique take on our monthly antique item.
