Home Stretch

I have realized that the best laid plans do not work.

I arranged the shoppe earlier this year, ordered more, gathered and painted more than ever.

We have been blessed to have been busier than we ever imagined. 

Like Martha says, "It's a good thing."

My new plan: restock, be ready & enjoy.

I have spent the week restocking all the goodies you seem to love...

Our Grab, Go & Give candles have been a huge hit.  At only $12, they are the perfect gift.
We are restocked on candles in favorite scents and a few new ones, I know you'll enjoy.

These locally made bracelets, allow you to show your sports spirit.  I restocked yesterday.  Swimming, lacrosse, running, dance, ballet, basketball, soccer, volleyball, cheer, horses, softball, baseball and an Ohio one.  Priced at $15, they also are a fantastic gift for any woman/gal.

A girl can never have enough bags!  Many to choose from too!  $25-$48

Ornaments, add on's and decor items are throughout the shoppe.

And, Everyone can use one of these...

Our schedule leading to Christmas is the following:

Friday 11:00-6:00
Saturday 10:00-5:00
Sunday 1:00-4:00
Monday 10:00-3:00

We will be open after Christmas:

Saturday, December 27, 10:00-5:00
Wednesday, December 31, 10:00-3:00* 
(Kids Pinterest Party 10:00-12:00)
Friday, January 2, 10:00-3:00

We have been so fortunate to enjoy our regular friends and make many new ones this Holiday Season. Please know that we are thankful that you visit us, support small business and that you enjoy our passion.  We are truly blessed & so very grateful.

Last Minute Gifts

I had the pleasure to join the Good Day Columbus, Fox28 team yesterday 
to share some last minute gift ideas.

The holidays are here - ready or not.  
So the projects I shared are easy, affordable and handmade - even personalized!

The Mugs & Wine Glasses are a perfect last minute, personalized gift.

Mug/Wine Glass
Oil Based Sharpie Paint Pens
Stickers or other design

Attach the sticker and use the paint pens to paint dots, or the design of your choosing.  
When dry, remove the sticker.
If you need to make any touch ups, now is the time!  Use rubbing alcohol to remove any paint or mistakes.
When satisfied, place on a baking sheet and place in the oven.
350 degrees for 30 minutes.
When done, let cool before removing.
Dress up your glasses, mugs with goodies appropriate for your recipient (i.e.: wine, cocoa, cookies, coffee)

Have fun with it!  Be creative!


The shoppe is open Today - Monday.  

We have packaged up some gifts.  

These Grab & Go & Give goodies are perfect for reachers, bus drivers, hairdressers, tutors, etc.  
Priced at $12!

Good news - I have a new phone.  Yes, the iPhone 6 Plus is my latest gadget.

Bad news- it's not quite communicating with my computer.  
So, I cannot share my wonderful photos of the shoppe with y'all.

Pop over to FB to see the latest.

Just to give you an idea of the changes, the following pieces have found their forever home.

Lots of updates throughout!

OPEN 11:00-8:00.

Come get your Christmas decor, gifts and furniture fix!!

Inside Our Barn

A few weeks ago I shared the "ugly" part of building a soccer field in the barn.

his screw ended up in Hubby's knee.  Ouch!

But it may have been worth the pain and work, because now we have an indoor soccer field.

He laid field turf, built a protective wall all the way around, complete with a door.  
He even built a pair of goals.

The girls love it! 

He even has a heater out there for his princesses.

Home is about making it yours.  We are slowly finding ways to make every inch of our space, work for us.  Although, I am being squeezed out.  My treasures are being displaced. 

A quick update on the shoppe:

Wednesday 11:00 - 8:00
Thursday 11:00 - 8:00
Friday 11:00 - 6:00
Saturday 10:00 - 5:00

I have restocked with great gift items, terrific furniture pieces and holiday decor throughout.  The shoppe looks very different than it did last week.  Updates on FB. 

Have a great day!

Festive Spirit

My Buckeyes rock! I hope you enjoyed that ass-whooping that occurred Saturday night! It has put me in the best mood!  
We took our happy selves right out to the tree farm and got our Christmas groove on. Yes, we are a bit behind.
The chosen one.  Which, if you cut down your tree, you know is a total crap shoot.

Let's be real here- I carried the saw, Hubby used it!
Hubby and Daughter #1 carrying our tree.  While Daughter #2 and I rocked the selfie.

Between the Buckeyes win and our festive decor, we are feeling the spirit of the season!
