What is Santa Getting you?

In case you have not made it in to our store in the last couple of weeks, you are in for a treat. We have added a small space in the back of our store to accommodate more goodies. Lots and Lots of goodies

We started off by plastering the back wall with old musical note sheets, added a little color of sunshine on the walls and a leopard carpet underfoot and voilà … a new space immerged.

We also have been revamping the store and are getting ready for the new year. New look, new stuff and lots of one-of-a-kind pieces of funiture. We set up a cozy bedroom area along with a neat bistro table right next door. All too cute to miss.

For those of you who are making your last minute shopping, make sure to put your wish on Santa's list!

Merry Christmas

Happy Holidays

I just wanted to stop and wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season! It's a time for giving, sharing and laughter. Most of all it's a time to rejoice in our Savior. I wish you all many blessings this coming year.

I wanted to share some of the Christmas spirit in our store. Enjoy.

It's Been A While

Whewwwww! I have been so busy that I looked up today and it is NOVEMBER! Where did the last couple of months go? I lost track of time working and attending football games. The days flew by without me noticing.

I did manage to decorate my table for fall...take a look.....

Elizer's Baby Shower

I had to post this in honor to Elizer who is going to be a first time momma. Congratulations Ellie!

Over the weekend my sister- in- law and I, threw my step-daughter a baby shower. I never had hosted one before, so all of it was kinda new to me. It was awesome and we all had lots of fun. Many thanks to everyone for your heartfelt wishes.

Proud Parents to be

The Color Green

I have a thing for the color green. I don’t know why. I just love the way it reminds me of a nice manicured lawn or maybe because it is the color of our greenbacks. I really can't pin point it.

I have different shades of green in my kitchen and on my bathroom walls. I also have a large French wardrobe painted in the green color shown below in my living area. It seems I can’t get enough of it.

As soon as I put something in the store in this color it vanishes. I guess I am not alone.
