Giveaway: Damn French Desserts


First of all, how awesome is this Etsy shop name: Damn French Desserts.

Second, check out the exquisite paper goods theses sisters manufacture (manu: hand, facture: make) out of Madrid, Spain.

When reader Heather pointed me in their direction, I knew you would drool over this "purveyor of exquisite knick knack" as much as I did, so I contacted them to see if they'd like to do a giveaway on The Steampunk Home. Luckily for all of us, they did!

Here's what the giveaway includes (items pictured at top):





To win: comment on this post. I'll pick a winner from the comments at random next Monday, January 31st, post it so the winner can send me their address and the good folks at Damn French Desserts will send your prize winging it way across the ocean to you.

Annie said...

I stumbled upon steampunk whilst researching themes for my wedding. I felt like an intrepid Victorian botanist, discovering something that has existed prior to my knowledge & yet opened up unto me a new world of excitement & wonder. I now have the bug! These pieces are fantastic & showcase how creative one can be with the smaller details around a humble abode. I ashamedly covet the door hanger - long may the disturbed reign!
