Thank You!


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you friends!

I am overwhelmed by the success of Small Business Saturday and the weeks that followed it. We pledged to give away 20 free SBS tote bags to our first 20 orders starting on Small Business Saturday and we did - quickly!! Many of the orders were to local friends throughout the state of North Carolina - which I love even more. 


In addition to our busy Etsy Shop, our Facebook page is slowly inching its way to 2500 likes! Eeeek! How did that happen so fast? We are brainstorming on what to do to celebrate the milestone -- another Ugly Furniture Contest? A discount on custom orders? Or A Share it and Win it for a headboard? We could even do a gift certificate to our Etsy Shop. Any ideas? We want to hear from you -- so message us, email us or FB us and let us know!

Thanksgiving 2014 Recap

So. Much. Turkey. 
Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays - a whole day spent with family, eating and watching football. Love it! We had a fairly quiet Thanksgiving this year. Nick was out of town, my brother spent the holiday with his girlfriend in GA and none of our extended family felt like traveling. So, Reid, Puppy Palin and I spent a long weekend with my parents in Cary. We took long walks, enjoyed the fall weather, cooked and baked all day - oh, and ate -- lots! My dad smoked some chicken, turkey and salmon to go with all of the traditional Thanksgiving fixin's - green beans, stuffing, cranberry sauce, roast root veggies, potatoes, and apple pie! 





The day after Thanksgiving we drove up to see my grandparents in Charlotte. So we had yet another amazing Thanksgiving meal - but more importantly Reid got to spend some quality time with his Greats! 




Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
