We have sparkly Birthstone greeting cards and Topaz birthstone
 jewelry available at our new DeKalb location. 
You will find us inside of the DeKalb Florist 
corner of Peace Rd & Rt. 38
Scarves and hats too - so stop in sometime and see what is cookin'.

Well sad but true, our shop is gone from downtown
Sycamore. All good things must end I guess.
BUT - we are not really gone. You can find our complete
assortment at The Shoppes at 127 on 3rd street in Geneva
AND our Vintage assortment at the gift shop area inside
DeKalb Florists at Peace Rd & Rt.38.
We are still making soy candles, soaps, perfumes and all
the rest in our home workshop. Drop us a note, or a text
to 630-253-8880 if you need anything.
In the meantime don't forget to LIKE our Facebook page
AND add it to your Interest list or you may not see our
updates (Facebook is playing footsie with fan pages again)

Did you know that Facebook is censoring your NewsFeed?

Have you maybe noticed most of the Pages that you had liked at one point or another are no longer posting updates ?

Well they are still posting, as much as ever. It is just that FB has now decided THEY will decide what you see from your favorite pages, and what you won't see.
 If you don't frequently comment, like or click links in these posts then they start to quickly fade, until you don't get them at all. There is a solution though, and it only takes 3 quick steps.

 Do the following if you would still like to get the updates and news from your Fav pages.
Click the MORE button on the lower left, right below APPS.
This will bring up ALL of the pages you have liked at one time or another. Probably some in there you had totally forgotten you liked. Click to check the ones you are still interested in - and when you are done selecting click NEXT.
Give the list a name - like My Fave Pages - or something and you are done. Easy Peasy.
You will never again wonder where your favorite page went to. They were there, just invisible.

Thanks to The 3-50 Project for posting this important information and helpful tip.

Vintage Mother's Day Cards are available in both locations.

These aren't just plain cards either - they are delicately
embellished with iridescent sparkles. Not glitter, just a soft sparkly
accent on key parts of the image. It is too bad we can't capture
that in a photo - you really have to see them in person.

We can even mail one for you if you like - just email or call
the shop. We didn't get these up on the website yet - but the
Father's Day cards will be available on the shopping cart
 next week for direct order / mailing.
See our Facebook Page to view the complete selection.

Wow, what happened to January ?

I have been planning to do an update but time just got away.

New things are coming - hopefully you have LIKED our Facebook
page by now as we will be offering promotions there on a regular
basis in the future. Going to be sending out an email update soon
too - so be sure to read it. Email is actually getting to be kind of
outdated isn't it ? I really prefer doing updates right here and on
Facebook. It is quicker and people can check back at any time and still
see the information. Emails tend to not get read, or lost in the heap
that seem to come in every day ( I get 300 emails a day, do you ?)

That said - I will probably only send an email a few times a year just
with reminders of big changes or stuff you really might want to know.
Sound like a plan ?
