Well, we are on the down stretch to Christmas! Only a few days left for shopping and then the festivities begin! We have had multiple photo shoots here at the store for Christmas cards. The very talented Audrey Land has been in a couple of times to take pictures of some beautiful families! Maybe you will get a card with a picture in the mail! I hope I do!
The wood shop has been busy, as well. They are working like santa’s elves to get some last minute gift ideas ready for those hard-to-buy people on your list. I know they are working on bead board frames from the Tuscaloosa County school that is being torn down. We are doing a huge project with the Alabama Alumni group for their scholarship fund….more on that later!
I have been using these little wood trees all over my house for decoration. On Tuesday, you can enter to win one of these trees on two different blogs! That’s right, there are two giveaways. Check in at Lucysinspired and 3qtguys for your chance to win!
They have so much character! Some are made from bead board, some from fluted trim pieces, then you have the ones made from the louvers from old shutters. I have one that has the fluted trim. I added nails to the tree to hang ornaments! These are in keeping with the vintage look. I have been collecting vintage glass ornaments and these cute little wood ornaments. They look like old toys. LOVE them!
You can also pick up ornaments made from bead board. How cute are these? They are the perfect hostess gift! Pick up one to tie to a bottle of wine or just wrap a couple together to take to Christmas parties this weekend!
Check out “The Garage” next time you are in the store. We have a section on the back of the store that will be our Garage Sale. You can find items that are marked down and items that we bought a big quantities of….so, they can be sold at a better price! You can drive around back and see “The Garage” from the street. On a pretty day, there will be cool items sitting on the sidewalk. Don’t forget to come inside. There’s always something fun to see!!
