What am I going to get for . . .?

It has been so cold lately that I have been thinking about these beautiful lavender heat wraps from Sonoma Lavender. Relax and soothe achy muscles when you heat these luxurious wraps. A wonderful gift.

Have a chocolate lover in the family. Warm your heart with Coco the Chocolate Bear (Sonoma Lavender). When you warm him in the microwave he smells of coco. Yummmy!
More gift ideas to come.

Christmas Wreaths & Decorations

With 22 days til Christmas, you have enough time to get your wreath up. Let us help. Nancy decorated this wreath with natural vines, magnolia leaves, sticks, pinecones, moss and tulip bulbs for one of our special customers. She also designed other wreaths using boxwood, nandina, and juniper, adding in decorative berries, glittery sprays and christmas ornaments.

'Tis the season to start thinking about the Christmas gifts I intend to give. I came across this cute idea on the Twig and Thistle blog and decided to pair it with these super cool marshmallow trees from Rome ($10.99) We have 'em!

What a great gift for the family who has everything. Or the family who loves to be outdoors. Or the family that loves Marshmallow fun! A creative gift for less than $20!

I was just thinking of some variations on the classic s'mores. Add some peanut butter or Nutella. OHHH! What about using dark chocolate bars and a piece of banana! What are your favorite campfire combos?

Mythical Wonderland

As the leaves are falling off the trees, I am noticing how bare my yard is becoming. Recently we got in some mythical creatures from Campania International. This new line of mythical creatures would be perfect for the base of my trees where my ferns will soon disappear.

This guy is pretty cute too. . . on the wall!

Which one? See you soon.

Christmas is here! We are glittery, sparkly, and dazed with the lights of Christmas. We have skipped right over Halloween and Thanksgiving because we enjoy Christmas so much. Spending time with family and snuggling in to the holidays is what we like best. I'm sure there will be many presents under our trees for you.
