Father’s Day Family Fun Garden Party

This Saturday & Sunday, we’re hosting games, activities, and special entertainment at Christmas Place to celebrate dads and summertime!  Here’s the complete agenda.

We hope you’ll come and join in the fun at the store, win a prize, enjoy a cookie, and especially bring the kids to make a card for Dad – you know it will be the best card he ever receives!

Letters to Santa

It’s time for Santa to start receiving letters again, so the elves can get to work and start earning their keep .. well, I am inferring the part about the elves from the first letter we’re reporting this year .. read on ..

Dear Santa,

Hi Santa how are you?  I’m not shore (sic) what I want yet.  Have I been naughty or nice.  What kind of cookies do you want.  Do you want milk and cookies?  I’m gonna give you cookies and eggnog.  Say hi to Mrs. Claus and all the elfes (sic).  How much are you paying the elves?

Don’t you love it??  “I don’t know what I want, but I know what I’m going to give you, and, by the way, what do those elves earn, anyway?”

It’s good to be thinking about Santa and the North Pole on a hot and muggy day like today!

Vera Bradley Summer Color

I just found this summer-y Vera Bradley collection in The Boutique.  Called “Starry Night,” this is a limited edition color – to me, it looks perfect for a beach trip .. of course, the coordinating beach towel is what makes the collection!

Vera Bradley Starry Night Collection

We also have a terrific assortment of the rest of the summer 2010 collection – my personal favorite is the Cha Cha bag – here’s the one I’m currently carrying – I wear a lot of black & white in the summer, and Night & Day coordinates with just about everything.

Pardon me while I go all girlie on you for a minute, but isn’t it just the cutest thing???  (I also have it in Make Me Blush, equally cute in great shades of pink & green!) 

Give us a call to order your bag today – we can ship, or hold it for pick up at your convenience.

Second Nature Goodies!

Is it officially summer now?  We’ve had a holiday, and it’s hot and steamy out there, sunshine and rain every day, and gardens are greening up nicely ~ if you watch closely, you can see the corn growing taller before your eyes!

Second Nature is getting into the spirit with a cheerful and sunny selection of garden flags, like these two examples. 

How about a colorful and stylish glass bird bath – maybe a butterfly or two will stop by as well.













Check out this cheerful cowabonga planter for your front porch!  Isn’t she a happy looking girl?

Maybe a menagerie is what you’re after to add some whimsy and fun to your summer decor ~ here’s a collection of domesticated animals that will tickle your fancy.

Hope you’re enjoying the warm weather and long days of summer!  When you’re out and about, come and check out Second Nature and The Boutique ~ we’re adding new merchandise weekly.
