Farewell to 2011...

It's been an AMAZING year.  Time flew by and here we are welcoming 2012 and all the wonder of what it will bring.  For now I just wanted to share some images from our best Season yet...


Nothing helps you get through a crazy season like a little humor...


We had some amazing artisans join the shop this season...


These adorable Salt and Pepper Shaker Snowman add such a whimsical charm...


Fun arrangements in vintage treasures...


And handmade critters...


It was an amazing year.  And our WISH for you is a year full of BELIEVING in yourself and PEACE in all you do!  We are so thankful for all of the support.  We truly could not be living this dream of our little shop without the wonderful customers and friends we have met this past year!

If you find yourself in our neck of the woods we hope you stop in for a visit!
