A December to Remember

I decided that I wanted to make this a December to Remember, so starting next Tuesday, we will be announcing new specials on our Facebook page every week! Make sure you follow us, so that you can find out what is Amy’s Favorite Thing for the week. I’ve had so much fun picking out these delightful items and can’t wait to share them with you.

I’m also very pleased to tell you about this month’s Ronaldo Bracelet of the Month ~ the Trinity Bracelet. Normally, this bracelet is $64.00, but it is on special during December for $52.00.

Here’s the story behind this endearing piece: 

In Matthew 28:18 – 20, the Holy Bible teaches us about the mystery and majesty of the Holy Trinity.  In that passage, Jesus told us that:  “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The Trinity Bracelet© is Ronaldo’s attempt to impress upon all of us the significance of the Holy Trinity, because of its importance and meaning in so many people’s lives. Ronaldo was inspired to incorporate two pearls into the bracelet to signify the purity of God’s love as shown by the Holy Trinity (which he felt was perfectly represented by the Son and Holy Spirit). Then, Ronaldo wanted to incorporate as the bracelet’s center stone design, a special tubular-cut black onyx, to signify the Holy Trinity’s power and absolute authority over all of heaven and earth (best represented by the Father).  Ronaldo wants everybody to remember that we are all part of something much bigger than ourselves.

Wishing you a magical Christmas season, may you make it one to remember, too. See you at the cottage!

Open House ~ Nov 2

I look forward to this season every year. I love all things Christmas, from the music to the baking cookies, and especially spending time with family and friends. I hope you can make it to the cottage Thursday, November 2 for our annual Holiday Open House because we would love to see you!

We have different hours this year!! The Open House is from Noon until 7:00 pm. Please note, we will be closed from 10:00 am until noon to prepare for the event.

This season is all about joy and happiness, and I’m especially excited that we will be hosting a Renaldo Jewelry Truck Show during the open house. This is a great opportunity because you will be able to see the entire line of Renaldo bracelets and work with our Renaldo rep, Jerry, from Mississippi. If you would like to order particular styles or sizes of bracelets as Christmas gifts, this allows enough time to do so.

Come and celebrate with us at our annual Holiday Open House this Thursday, November 2 from Noon until 7:00 pm.  

See you at the cottage. Happy Christmas!

Fall has Arrived at the Cottage

It’s that time of year when the mornings have that feeling of fall in the air. School is back in session and football games are starting. Soon the trees will be turning deep red and gold and harvest time is right around the corner.

It is a nostalgic time for me.  The cottage is full of the basics hues of fall colors, deep red, orange, browns and gold. Fall reminds me of everything about family. It is friendly and familiar.

We have what you need for your fall decorating to make your home warm and inviting. We even have a few delightful Halloween items that will make the kiddos happy! Halloween is spooky, not scary, like these adorable galvanized ghosts and pumpkins.

There is so much more for you to see and smell, too. So welcome, friends… we hope to see you at the cottage soon!

National Floral Design Day

Did you know that today is National Floral Design Day? But you don’t need a complex and showy arrangement to make your surroundings more welcoming!

The quality and design of silk flowers has improved though the last few years, and I’m excited about all the vibrant spring colors we have at the cottage.

From a decorating perspective, some simple ideas include adding a few sprigs of poppies to a mason jar or putting a bunch of sweet daisies in a colorful pitcher, like what we did at the cottage.

Floral arrangements can be used to coordinate with your decor or you can pick out colors that contrast with your wall colors. These arrangements are an easy and economical way to add an accent color (or two) and be able to change it when you want to try something new.

As a gift, flowers are a delightful way to express your affection for a friend, especially when you can pair them with a fun container.

Whether you like lots of green foliage or are a fan of arrangements that focus on the flowers, we can help you pick out something that showcases your personal style and taste. We get so much enjoyment out of seeing our customers and friends excited to take home something new.

So, what can you do to brighten up your days? It’s pretty simple… add some flowers around you!!!

See you at the cottage!

Sunshine in the Cottage

re-open2This past month we’ve had a wonderful time re-decorating the cottage and bringing in new merchandise. Every season has a theme for me, and this spring, I would say that the colors convey a sense of vibrance and renewal. They aren’t the brights bold of primary colors, but hues that are closer to nature and convey a sense of calm.

We re-open tomorrow, January 31!! So, come check it out for yourself. You deserve to be inspired and comforted by what surrounds you in your home, whether that is a glorious new chair or a simple wooden sign that says “Our family is a circle of strength and love, founded on faith, joined in love, and kept by God together, forever.”

See you at the cottage!
