Paris in July - Random Prizes!


 
I've been strolling through some of this weeks Paris in July Posts, and I've decided to award another 'Random Prize' and some early commendations for this weeks posts. We've got a few days left in this great month of July - so there's still time to post something new to finish off the month long event. I'll be doing the round up post at the end of the month, while we wait to hear if Baby Bookbath has arrived.

So today's 'Random Prize' goes to Alex in Leeds for this book review on The Homemade Life. I want to award a prize to this post because it is such an honest review of an interesting book. If you're into foodie books, or romance it seems, you might like to check out Alex's post. I like what Alex highlights about this book - its about a woman who makes a choice to change her life for something she's passionate about, it's about a woman who uses her blog to progress her passions, and it's about food and Paris. So you think it should have all the right ingredients... still Alex gave an honest review.

Other commendations from me on posts this week:
So, Congratulations Alex in Leeds. Send me an email with a postal address and I'll send out a little surprise!

Now, with only 4 days to go, don't forget to post a link to your posts either here at Thyme-for-tea or at Bookbath.

I've been enjoying everyone's posts and finding so many great books and sights to see in France next time. Thanks for hosting this. Today, for Saturday Snapshot, I do a reverie with a photo from every trip I've taken to France since 1983. Gosh, I was young then! Here It Is

Love the wrap-up posts that highlight everyone else's stuff. I've posted a recipe today that takes advantage of one of the fruits in season at the moment here in France:
