We have officially entered my favorite time of the year....seeew you know what that means! Christmas music on the blog!!!! From old classics to new discoveries, I try to include as much as I can for your holiday pleasures.
The "Mothership" and I have been enjoying our three day holiday break. Today we started decorating her home and of course I had to break out this new single from Kylie Minouge called White December! It's more of a "romantic Christmas" little diddy...think Mariah Carey and her "All I Want For Christmas..." If it doesn't make you want to dance and shake your charm pack, I don't know what will. Reading the blog on a desktop as opposed to an iPhone will give you all the musical "feels." Just an FYI.
In the days and weeks ahead I will be sharing all of my holiday favorites (new and classics) with you while updating you on lots of things here at the Shoppe! Of course, I'll be starting with a re-cap of our most popular workshop, "Homespun & Holly!" From the feedback we received, everyone had a great time and loved their "secret" projects from our invited designers! Registration for next year, has already launched with people already booking in with their friends! We have moved the event to the first week of December in 2016, which is perfect for a holiday workshop! You can register for 2016 right here. Stay tuned for the re-cap!
Would you believe I am still creating Christmas displays in the Shoppe?! This year, while I didn't want to rush the holidays...I also developed a third blood clot in my calf. Again? I know...let's not dwell - I'm receiving treatment, but it has slowed me down. It's ok though as Christmas to me, begins after Thanksgiving. In our family, we add in decorative touches throughout the entire season which makes it all the more special. An ornament here, a decorative garland there - and all to a little candle glow! You really should try it sometime, you'll be amazed at how much of a festive, winter wonderland you can create! Seeew if you're making plans to visit the Shoppe this weekend, you'll want to keep checking back as we always find something to add.
Alright, I'm going to start working on our displays at the Shoppe. I delivered one of the trees to The "Mothership's" home seeew she's now happy as a Cardinal. Look at me ensuring everyone's happiness today. LOL. The picture above is of her treenware display. We sell these gorgeous wood trays in the Shoppe and people always ask, "What do you do with them?" Well...here you go! Add some fancy candles and greenery and you have an attractive display for your mantle, a dining room table, kitchen island, etc. She will throw in some snow and light the candles a little later on.
We hope you all had a moment to reflect on everything you are grateful for and spent lots of time with family and friends!
We will be open Saturday for Small Business Saturday (10am-5pm) and Sunday (12pm-4pm). You never know what we have in-store for those of you who venture into the Shoppe!
Stay Seeew-cial and I'll be back with the Homespun & Holly re-cap! ~ Brian
