C'est La Vie.....







Out for a country drive on Sat.....when we spotted this charming little store in this grand old house....just look at all her treasures waiting for a new home....eye candy at its best! But alas....she was closed for the day.........heartbreaking!!!! Not much I could do.....except say "C'est La Vie" which just happened to be the name of the shop......how fitting!!! Enjoy your day my friends ~Chrissy~

So are you heading back out there today?! :) It wouldn't be C'est la vie for too long with me!
How's the bedroom coming along?
Nothing but storms lately here so every room's gotten a little makeover.
I thought of you the other day...hope you are feeling much better. :) Take care of yourself.

Hi Chrissy
I am good thanks for asking and you? I have been too busy this summer and I haven't been able to blog the way I want but things will settle down here soon... just a lot going on right now.
I hope your Fourth was good and you enjoyed yourself... your little outing looked so nice, except for the closed sign of course.
Many Blessings
Rebecca

Well, that was a tease for them to leave all that great stuff around for you to see. Looks like a great spot.

Hope you are feeling well!
