Ash Wednesday


Todays theme is reflections. This is where I try chatting about anything and everything! Oh my! That might be dangerous!First, I would like to apologize for not posting weekly. Opening our other shop has kept us very busy. I will try to make an effort to at least post once a week.

I can not believe it is, the Ash Wednesday beginning of Lent for  Christians. During lent we fast, give up something or work on bettering oneself in their faith for 40 days. I am going to work on a few personal issues myself. One item I would like to be better with is not to be negative, let go of the negativity that surrounds us.

At SOSNM, we need to start reorganizing and decorating for Spring and Easter. Easter Sunday is March 27.

Spring to me is a rebirth, a new beginning. We look forward sharing so many ideas to kick start your Spring Season. Dee and I hope when you celebrate Easter, each of you will feel refreshed to begin your Spring with new possibilities.Stop in our shops. I also want to share a few videos of some decorating tips you can try at home.

Happy Valentines to all of you! Love to all of you!

Baby it’s Cold Outside!

While most of the Country is in a deep freeze, why don’t we curl up by the fire with some delicious Harney and Sons Tea and Scones with Mixed Berry Jam from Stonewall Kitchen. Sit back ,relax and visit our website. Follow our blog.

Yesterday I made the Valentines Blend from Harney and Sons Tea.  It was delicious !My husband came into the house, and said did you make hot chocolate? The tea is a blend of chocolate and rose. It tastes and smells wonderful. I’m usually a coffee drinker but I do enjoy Harney teas with my gal friends who love tea.

Our small Valentines Tea tin is 4.00 , our large tin of other flavors are 9.00 and single bag of teas are .25 ( great way to see which flavor you like)
