Days until Christmas: 3

Three days until Christmas morning. Now the pressure is on for those of us that seem to love that last minute battle to get it done!!!

So, I tried (yes, tried!) to get to the dreaded area around the mall a few days ago for one of the last gifts I needed. And I gave up. You read it right. Gave. Up. Where do all those cars come from???! And I was soooo sly. I went the back route and cut through parking lots only I knew about and...there were all those cars again!!! Forget it.

I headed downtown to an independent shop, parked about three car lengths away from the front door and was in and out in less than ten minutes, gift in hand.

The lesson in this: learn from my mistakes! Avoid the big boys and shop your little local shops.

If you're still shopping, we just might have what you need. We got in some great new jewelry, scarves and flat wallets this past week. Priced from $8-$52, you won't be breaking the bank, either.

Christmas is on sale if you still need a little touch of the season here and there. We're always happy to see you and glad to help if we can. Save your sanity for when your really need it!!
Ho, ho, ho--

Days Until Christmas: 14

Although Christmas is quickly creeping up, there is still plenty of time left before the "big day" to get done what really has to be done! And what has to be done is enjoy what is in front of us and to know how lucky and blessed we all are. I've got about half my shopping done, my tree is not yet up and my fall/Halloween decorations are sitting in a pile in our office. So what do I plan to do? Throw a spur of the moment party for a great friend this Sunday......why not? Her birthday is coming up & with Christmas, she always seems passed over. Not fair!!!

And what are your plans? If coming into good goods is one of them-here's a little of what you'll see!

Love this old, old silverplate shaving mirror...dripping w/ lockets. Oh, just ordered a lot of new jewelry that is no where else in Boise--will be in the beginning of next week!

Sparkle & shine.

One of my favorite sayings. SOLD

A wide angle shot w/ the crooked lamp shade almost smack dab in the middle....well, you get the idea!!

"Book" boxes.
Enjoy the season. Enjoy this frigid weather! Enjoy your families & your friends!!!

Days Til Christmas: 21

Yes, twenty one days until "The Day" but another way of looking at it is: we still have twenty one days to enjoy a wonderful, beautiful season. We still have time to relax and enjoy some old traditions and, maybe, make some new ones.

I quit making Christmas cookies years ago. Then good old Pillsbury came up with the "pre-made (and rolled) sheets of dough. Yippee!! I always liked decorating best anyway. That tradition is back on the list. I haven't sent out Christmas cards for several years for "lack of time". Unfortunately, this was the one time each year I reminded some relatives and old friends that I hadn't forgotten them. So, this one is going back in-sort of. I'm sending out New Years Greetings in 2010. It just made sense to me and besides....there are some cute cards out there for New Years. In fact, we will be expecting exactly that in the shop in a few weeks!

Oh, that reminds me...the shop! (how convenient!) We're still getting shipments of new merchandise and I even added a few new lines that came in last week. I snapped a shot here and there in case you were wanting to take a peek.

I love this Swedish inspired clock.

Restocked our paperweight kits.

A new line for us that has gotten a great reception.

One of our favorites: books! And a sample of a clock from a new vendor.

Sets of magnets from a local gal.

...more books!

Bling for....everyday!

IMPORTANT INFO: We will be open on Sundays from noon until 4:00 through December 20!We'd been getting frequent requests and "Gee, I wish you were open on...." so we've adjusted the schedule to accommodate!!

Also, to all who joined us on Black Friday and the weekend after Thanksgiving-Wow!! Thanks so darn much. We were delighted to be so busy and to get that much support from all of you. It means the world to us and doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated.
