Thanksgiving and Christmas are almost upon us, and I like to reflect on what is important to me. I know most of us are in the fast lane and forget to be thankful, but I am thankful for all for all the beauty around us. My family, friends, and my employees are all important. I believe that is why we love our homes to be comfy and cozy, especially during the holidays. Decorating the tree at our home is a tradition between my daughter and me. We love pulling out ornaments one by one and remembering where we got them. Some were hand sewn, painted, and made by me when I was a teenager and my early twenties. Some are from my mother that are considered vintage and collectable at this point and others have been collected over the years. It is such fun to create memories by collecting ornaments, especially when your daughter has the same passion. That creates an opportunity to spend time together. At our retail store and design center in Clemmons, we have an assortment of special unique Christmas accessories to choose from. It is my passion from the past and my own mother that helps me select what we will theme our store with each year. There are hand painted and hand blown glass ornaments that sparkle. Vintage Santas, snowmen, trucks, snowshoes, and many more to add to your collection are displayed on our trees. Elves adorn the tops of our trees this year with beautiful ribbon as well.
Mantles are hard to decorate but we are here to help make suggestions. There is garland about the store that we can customize with berries, greenery stems, and lit ornaments for your mantles. Don’t forget your windows. We have the newer type LED candles that can light up your windows with newer technology, timers, and sensors on them. All these things come together to create a cheery and festive environment that brings seasons of Comfort and Joy.
