Step Into Christmas!

Welcome to my Christmas song
I'd like to thank you for the year
So I'm sending you this Christmas card
To say it's nice to have you here
I'd like to sing about all the things
Your eyes and mind can see
So hop aboard the turntable
Oh step into Christmas with me

Step into Christmas
Let's join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission's free

Take care in all you do next year
And keep smiling through the days
If we can help to entertain you
Oh we will find the ways
So Merry Christmas one and all
There's no place I'd rather be
Than asking you if you'd oblige
Stepping into Christmas with me
(Elton John)

Brr! Baby It's cold Outside!

Christmas Greetings friends!
It's just what I've been waiting for! A little Christmas weather for Christmas Spirit filled shopping! Just arrived: jewelry bags with a crazy Curlz monogram-for travel or dresser, silver Fleur de Lis pendants and earrings, notepads-inspirational, zebra print with initials, and LSU, and cool graffiti crosses. And...Yeah! The initial bejeweled notepads have arrived! Run by and pick up a few for stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, or a special "Little Happy"!

There is still enough time to order a monogrammed guest and dish towels, insulated lunch and tote bags, or even a special apron! We are watching the clock to order engraved silver, shell, and copper jewelry, and monogrammed soaps! If you are pressed for time and you know what you want, we can take your order over the phone! Remember our great shell monogrammed pendants large ($19 + tax) and small ($15 + tax) in lots of shapes: Diamond, oval, round, rectangular, and heart! You can order a monogram or single initial. We have many initials in stock, but in case your initial is missing we can order that too! I'll order on Thurs. Dec. 11 and Sat. Dec. 13 for shipments to arrive in time for Christmas! They have all been beautiful when they arrive and suit ladies of all ages!

See you soon!
We'll keep the gate open for you!
I'm usually working later in Dec.! Just call to be sure!
