On a Rainy Day......

Yesterday started out as a typical rainy dreary day!! I had planned on staying home and bringing up all my Christmas decor... 
but then it all changed....
I met my very good friends, Marni and Nancy for an early lunch, which actually turned into a later lunch.. By the time we were done catching up it was already 2:00. At this point, I felt it was too late to start with hauling boxes of Christmas stuff upstairs, so I decided to head over to one of my favorite shops...


I absolutely love this store, and have been long overdue for a visit...
Well, I was not disappointed... as usual!! 
From the moment I walked in the front door, I felt the Christmas Magic!!

 They are in full Christmas mode! Although Christine, (the shop owner) kept apologizing for not having the shop in order. I kept giggling inside...The shop looked beautiful!! If you are not sure how to display things, they do it for you... It's great!! They have little vignettes set up everywhere with different Christmas themes. 

Not only do they give you great decorating idea's with their displays.... It is such a pleasure to shop there. Christine and her mom, Kathleen, are so friendly. I feel like I am shopping with  friends. You laugh and cry and everything in between!!. I always have so much fun!! And I always leave with something wonderful!!!

I do !! I do !!! 


 I bought only a couple of treasures for home this time around.. I will wait until I take out my Christmas stuff, to see what I really "need".. I can not wait to go back.. 
I snagged this glittered sign.

These heavy raw linen towels.. hmmm pillows maybe??

These Gorgeous Glittered Ornaments!!! 

I'm loving these feedsack towels!!

These are sooo cool!! And recycleable!!
PLACE CARD's. You write on them with chalk!! 


I believe... do you???




AND.... just so you know!! 

Wishing for you a....

Thank you Christine for making my rainy day into a sunny one!!!

Well you most certainly have the bug now ; ) How could you not feel good after spending time with friends in this beautiful store. I was in one of my fav shops last week. I was there for 2 hrs. The owner and I had sooo much to talk about while I kept seeing more and more things every time I went around the store. My two big purchases were a pretty silver tree (because it reminded me of my mom. We always had an aluminium tree with that coloured spinny wheel in front of it( and a very pretty white Egyptian cotton nighty that also reminded me of my mom, she LOVED her nighties. I also picked up a couple new ornies, a couple cute prince frogs, some really sweet cards and other things that are going on their way to my friends. LOVE IT .
Can't wait to see your home all decorated Cheryl.
Have a great weekend.
Love Claudie

What fun Cheryl. I feel as though I just went shopping with you! Chuckled out loud at the Santa underwear sign. Too funny!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and I am glad that you will be eating turkey!
