Counting My Blessings

Thanksgiving kicks off the busy Holiday Season. Our clients have been coming in a steady stream to pick up a beautiful centerpiece like the one above and view the Christmas decorations throughout the store. This year I'm counting my blessings like never before. Looking past politics, stock markets, gas prices and wars I am grateful to God for all the things I do enjoy. And must I remind myself to see the beauty around me with "fresh eyes" each day. Syracuse is a great place to live.

Tis The Glitter Season!

Round about November I come home with tiny sparkly bits of glitter stuck to my face. My husband will say "Uh oh, the glitter season has started!". Eventually glitter will spread to my entire family. But they don't complain too much because what would the holidays be without a bit of twinkle and sparkle...
One whole corner of the shop is devoted to a "Retro Christmas" theme. It's fun, nostalgic and verrrry glittery.

Happy Birthday Revisited

Flower cakes are not a new idea but they are still a sugar-free and inexpensive way to say Happy Birthday. And, to add an additional element of fun, we decorate the treat with festive cellophane and tissue.
Thank you to our friend Pam who talked me into "baking" her a cake. Another shopper saw the cake and ordered one...then someone else...then someone else.
We can make one for you too.
Starting at $39.95 as shown
