Frenchie Finds September 2021

It’s September and that means “la rentrée,” back to school, back to work, back to shopping. Somehow it is a bit more exciting when you are French as there is energy around all this, like a celebration. Maybe it’s the adult version of not seeing your friends all summer and now the gang is back together!

Pour la Maison

French-themed Matches

matches from Husdon and Grace

Love these French-themed matches from Hudson | Grace. One that says “Merci” and one “Say it in French (“If you can't say something nice, say it in French)” which I find to be humorous. Either way, they make great gifts for Francophiles to have on their table or near their candles.

French-themed Kitchen Towels from Sur La Table

At the moment we have Vicjhy (Gingham) print kitchen towels, but I have got my eye on this France map and this macaron kitchen towels from Sur La Table. After all, if I have to do the dishes, I want that time to be fun!

Eiffel Tower Napkings (and more) from Boutique L'Abeille Française

Boutique L'Abeille Française

And for those dinner parties or fancy dates at home, I am digging these Eiffel Tower napkins from Boutique L'Abeille Française (which happen to use one of my Misadventures with Andi colors…). Frances also has a coffee mug with this design (an apron too) along with 2 other French-themed coffee mugs (gold Eiffel Tower and white Bonjour) that will perk up any Francophiles morning.

Nathalie Lete Charmante Eiffel Tower Dinner Plate from Anthropologie

That napkin needs a plate! You know I am always checking out the sales on Anthropologie's site! I found this charming Eiffel Tower plate in such lovely colors that I want to have a tea party!

High Ball Glasses from Wold & Badger

These are an awesomely strange combination of animals and French expressions, so quirky I cannot resist sharing them! There is:

Vichy (Gingham) Print Shower Curtain

Moving to the powder room, I could kick myself for just buying a shower curtain for our guest bathroom as I am a sucker for Vichy print and love this one from Crane & Canopy in blue no less!

Vetements (Clothing) + Mode (Fashion)

French-themed t-shirts

French-themed t-shirts on Etsy

I love graphic t-shirts and have quite a collection of them. They were a necessity while living in Phoenix, now that I am in the Raleigh area and working from home like the rest of the world, they are just fun and a conversation starter on all those Zoom calls! My favorite French expression that I say ALL the time is N'Importe Quoi, which basically translates to an exasperated “whatever!” These are my recent favorites from various Etsy stores where I pick these up from:

Livres (Books) + Papeterie (Stationary)

All the Things in A Thing Created!

OMG I discovered a very dangerous Etsy shop and I am j'adoring all the things in A Thing Created! I seriously need to walk away before I buy everything! The designer, Erisha, has many whimsical products mainly stationary that sing to my inner Francophile, here are a few of my favorites!

New Books

Gifts for Francophiles Books

Books make the perfect gift for francophiles, I love books set in Paris or about Paris or French life and foods. Here are NEW releases (and an old classic!) that your Francophile friends and/or family member may not have yet:

Et voilà! That's this month's list of gifts for Francophiles!
