17 sleeps until Christmas!

Christmas of '69. Santa bringing presents to my brother, sister and me. If you couldn't tell, that's me holding the baby.

As we further into the holiday season, we tend to get caught up in shopping, cooking, and the fast paced havoc we call "Christmas". Somewhere in the middle of this, we lose ourselves amidst the wrapping paper and bows. Seeing this picture my mother sent me, really had me thinking that I should be focusing more on family, friends, and making memories. This season I hope that you take advantage of the opportunity to make many happy memories of your own.

Pure Sanctuary Trunk Show

Here is just a little teaser of what is to come this Friday the 5th with the Pure Sanctuary Trunk Show. There will be an endless selection of little indulgences. These charms, chains, bracelets, pearls, and earrings are interchangeable to keep your style unique. To get the show REALLY going, Pure Sanctuary is offering a free charm to the first 10 people who spend $100 (can't wait to see what that is!) and we have door prizes to boot! We have extended our hours Friday and Saturday 10am to 5pm.

Okay, So I couldn't resist giving you a sneak peek of some of the new collectibles.

Yesterday we decked our halls and hung our holly in preparation for the holidays. I know its hard to think of Christmas on these beautiful fall afternoons, but here at C'est Moi it's a winter wonderland.

Fall Favorites

With fall really rushing in this year, you automatically feel the need to put away the summer decorations and bright colors, and invite the warm colors of fall right into your humble abode. We have had several NEW arrivals hit the store this week. Here is a quick sneak peek.

The best thing about a Dash & Albert rug is you can replace your spring style rug in your kitchen and spice it up for the wintry seasons to come, or get a nice indoor/outdoor rug in place of that old "welcome" mat. With Dash & Albert, it doesn't have to say "WELCOME" to be ever so inviting.

Straight in from France, our collection of Le Jacquard tea towels, runners, and napkins are perfect for any holiday, special occasion, or even for every day use. They come in any color you can imagine, and stay just as vivid wash after wash. These towels are absolutely remarkable.

Root Candles. Enough said? Root Candles are made up of a beeswax blend, and come in many different styles, colors, and scents. They range from unscented collenettes and tapers to scented pillars and votives.

Who can't relate to this snapshot by Koralee Teichroeb in "Where Women Create"

My entire life, my moments have been measured in minutes. I can't count the many times I have said "In a minute..""Give me a minute.."" I'll be there in a minute.." or " Just a minute." What individual person hasn't?
Separating my time between children, my husband, my store, and my friends leaves me with few minutes to spare after using them all up with what my kids refer to as "being on momma time". Yeah, you know that clock that every mother has where one minute is actually equal to thirty minutes according to everyone else.
As for those "IOU" seconds, we've all had those nights where we press on past midnight just because it wasn't possible to fit it all into one day, my only hope is that whether they are minutes or seconds,good or bad, I have made a difference.

Whimsically Spooked

Happy & Scary, Spooky& Cooky
All these emotions in one collection,
Halloween faces made to an artist's perfection.
The little devil about to wet his britches,
A whimsical broom ride with cute little witches.
Mummy boy all wrapped up tight,
And little Draco, his face full of fright.
The little darlings of Halloween.

Joyful & Frightening, Pale faces & Eyes a widening.
Pumpkins full of candy and gleam,
Make way for the Halloween Queen.
Smiling candy buckets for girls and boys,
for them to collect their Hallow's Eve joys.
And don't forget Fannie and Jack,
Pumpkins ready for wonderful snacks.
Oh the little darlings of Halloween

Come on in to see our new Halloween items and collectibles.

It feels so official to finally have the sign finished, the credit card machine working properly, and managing not to stick to the floor with every step I take from the slow curing paint. Most people who know me may be a little worried about my gypsy heart right now, you know that itch to go and dig for treasure, trust me there is no need to worry the hunt is still my passion. However, I'm pleased to say that I'm settling into the store and my new role of shopkeeper quite well. I look forward to putting the "OPEN" sign out on the sidewalk with the anticipation that the roar of the Big Brown truck will be stopping in front of our store.

I thought I would go ahead and give you a sneak peek of my favorite new arrival:

Our new French Stlye and Shabby Chic home decor books.

New art from one of our local artists, Lauren Denny.

Camp bracelets, charms, and chains from Waxing Poetic

Life is change. Growth is optional.

"Screaming MiMi"

As you all may know, with the sudden announcement that Cristin would be moving to California and closing her store, I was faced with the decision of opening a store of my own. Needless to say, this is why I have been an absentee blogger. I'm EXCITED to announce that growth is my option, and the store has the target opening date of Monday, August 16th. Check back soon for updates about the store and up coming events at the Warehouse!

The next warehouse sale is just a week away. So, in preparation we have a prepared shopper's checklist!

1. Bring cash or your good check although, we have been known to trade for puppies or coffee.

2. Dealer and designer (even if in your own mind) discounts available.

3. If you do not plan on paying tax, don't forget your tax ID.

4. And just like the gun and knife show, call a buddy and bring a friend!

We hope to see you there!

Not Your Mother's Country

When I say "country", do you think of blue and white check and geese? Or, do you think of a thatched roof cottage with layers of textiles thrown upon a white chippy piece of furniture with fresh cut flowers from the garden resting on a bedside table? Country House will make you feel like you just picked up an issue of English Home. Come and see Tom's wonderful collection of antiques at the Warehouse sale this weekend!

Vintage Reflections

I have been so busy lately preparing for the warehouse sale that it was nice to take some time to be creative and make a few new pieces of jewelry. These are made from vintage religious pieces that I have been collecting for several months. You can find these pieces at Cristin's in Brentwood.

Al Fresco Anyone?

Those busy girls from Three French Hens and The Roost in Nolensville will be doing the Bloom 'n' Garden Show at the Williamson County Ag Center this next weekend. I can't wait to go see what repurposed container or exciting new plant material I might be able to go snag from them. If you have a few extra hours on the 9th, 10th, or 11th, you really should attend. You will not be disappointed!!! It truly is my favorite garden show of the year. I always come home so inspired to play in the dirt!
