Well, I thought there was a vide grenier here..honest!

Sometimes the last thing my husband wants to do is trail around a flea market with me but sometimes he humours me and comes along.
And so it was that yesterday, Bastille Day, we took a drive to Bricquebec on the Contenin Peninsula to a vide grenier that I had seen advertised in the local Intermarche supermarket.
Well, guess what? There wasn't one and he was not a happy man until we spotted L'Epicerie Parisienne.
Those of you who know my other half know that he is a very good cook, quite a gourmand & wine connoisseur, so we spent a very pleasant 20 minutes or so wandering around this wonderful food store admiring the food and the eclectic decor.
Madame la patronne was a delight and when I enquired of Monsieur if it was o.k. for me to photograph his displays, he answered "S'il vous plaît, Madame, comme si vous étiez à chez vous".
Today, we enjoyed some of our purchases from L'Epicerie Parisienne for lunch.

Enjoy the pix.

YMBD Saturday Scraplift

Well, here I am bragging again...................I was just thrilled to win the Saturday scraplift challenge over at YMBD last weekend with this LO of my Dad, Bill enjoying the seaside back when he was a young man and I was just a twinkle in his eye.
