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!

Chars Idea/Recipe

Stonewall Kitchen Cranberry Horseradish sauce. This is delicious on turkey, chicken, or beef. I was serving a prime rib. I usually serve it will a horseradish/mayo sauce I mix. I was out of horseradish. I used the cranberry horseradish sauce with some mayo. Wisk it, it turns into a pretty pink sauce. Delish!

What will be in store for all us in 2016? Can’t wait! Dee and I will do our very best to provide lots of great treasures for your picking! We hope along with  great shopping experiences, all of us will enjoy laughter and fun while doing it.

This is Chars favorite  new aqua lantern, you could an angel, snowman, or snow baby  snow baby in your lantern. Not just for candles.

Excitement is in the Air


Excitement is in the air at SOSNM ! First, I want to share what happened on Monday at our shop. We hosted our first bridal shower at SOSNM . It was a great time! Some local business women wanted to have a bridal shower for one of their co-workers. Since it was ladies from work, they thought it would be lovely to have it off work premises. So they scheduled the shower on their lunch hour. SOSNM provided the space,tables, chairs, serving trays, and the backdrop for the shower. Our guests provided their refreshments and the fun. SOSNM surprised our guests with a party favor. Each guest got a teacup with a Harney & Sons tea bag with a 10% coupon. The ladies loved our shop. Thanks for  having our first shower at SOSNM .

We want to encourage all of our customers to think about hosting a bridal shower, baby shower, unwind after work party, girls day out, birthday, or any other occasion party here.  We would love to help you plan you next event here.

SOSNM is also available to do DIY classes. When we first opened up our shop, we started having a class on our first Saturday of the month, but there was a low interest in them. If you have a group of friends who would be interested in DIY classes, let us know. Excitement and fun at SOSNM . As Dee states our shop is not just a shop, it’s a destination.

Come in and join the fun! Stay tune by signing up for our constant contact list and check us out on our website, Facebook, Google Business,Twitter.


Wed. Recipe:

Fried Red Tomatoes

I love fried green tomatoes but my mom and grandmas always fried the red ones for breakfast. In addition to eggs, meat, this was a side dish. I can eat just the Tomatoes for a meal with a piece of French or Italian bread.

So here’s my recipe( really moms and grandmas)


I’m going to let you choose your topping. I sometimes use Italian bread crumbs or cornmeal to coat my Tomatoes . They both are very good.

Two tomatoes sliced

1 cup of bread crumbs or cornmeal

1 tablespoon of sugar(if you want you could use a sugar substitution )

olive oil to coat your pan

Salt and pepper

Slice your Tomatoes, heat your oil in frying pan.

Mix  your sugar into your bread crumbs, dip your Tomatoes real well on both sides.  Put your breaded tomatoes in frying pan, s&p them.Fry on one side for 2-3 minutes and then turn, fry same time on that side. Lay paper towel on plate, transfer them on paper towel. Then lift them onto serving plate. Enjoy!
