A few weeks ago I attended the Paris to Provence Festival as the end stop of the Melbourne Tweed Ride. It was a bright sunshiney day and perfect for strolling around the grounds of Como House eating and drinking French delights, doing a spot of shopping and apparently a great opportunity to pull out your mini Marie Antoinette costume :–)

While the festival has been and gone I wanted to share my favourite find  - Castlemaine-based homewares company Malmaison which imports French products and sells French-inspired items. In particular, I fell in love with their pocket advent calendar which is currently adorning the fireplace in my house in the countdown to Christmas.

I’ve filled each of the little calico pouches with edible treats – no dinky plastic toys or crappy chocolates for me!
