A Serendipitous Find

The day dawned with a mix of sun and cloud but since it seemed to lean more towards sunshine we decided to take a lovely drive in the country. As we drove I spied a sign pointing down a yet smaller road.  We didn't have to drive very far before we saw this smallish but charming little shop, right beside a vineyard.   Of course we had to stop and see what we'd find inside. I'm so glad we did.
The dictionary defines serendipitous as happening upon things by chance and this was definitely such a find.

Outside were some tables where in summer you could have tea. I noticed that their Hydrangeas were still lovely, as opposed to mine which are not. In fact I've cut many of mine right down already.

             The day was cool enough to make this fireplace a welcome sight.

The place was chock-a-block crammed with so many pretty things and at quite reasonable prices.

 The two women that ran the shop seemed to be mother and daughter and were very pleasant and friendly. They told us that at the end of November there would be a 4 day special Christmas event
( they are normally open Saturdays and Sundays only). Other shops in the area will be participating.
I am so excited. It's going to be such a fun time.

Don't you love it when you happen upon  something that thrills your heart?

Thanks for coming by.  Please leave a comment so I know you were here.
