Almost a New Year!

If you've been in lately you will notice that we are going through some changes. We will have some dealer spaces open soon and are interviewing for them right now.
If you would like more information about being a dealer in MY FRIENDS AND I just look to the left and click on where it says "click here to contact me by email". Send me your name and phone number and I'll get in touch with you. You can also call the shop and leave a message for me to call you.
Have a safe and Happy New Year's!

Baby it's cold outside!


As I told you in the last post we are in IL. and it's a far different Christmas than we're used to in the Bay Area. It's fun being all nice a warm inside looking out the window at the snow. I think it's beautiful, but as a native Fremonter (I was born in Niles) I'll take our weather over months of this. I would probably not leave the house all winter. LOL
Don't forget our after Christmas Sale starts on the 26th

Sad News

One of our dealers just lost her daughter to Cancer after a brave 5 year battle. Our hearts and thoughts go out to Kay and her whole family. Toni left behind 2 small children and a husband who will miss her terribly. Please keep them in you thoughts .
We will be closed on December 23 so that the girls in the shop can attend the service. I'm in IL. having Christmas with one of my daughters and family so I won't be at the service in person, but will be there in spirit. Kay is someone I consider a friend and part of my family.
Tell someone close to you how much you love them and count your blessing this holiday season.

We will also be closed December 24th and 25th.
When we open back up at 11:00 on December 26th all Christmas will be 40% off the orginial price. There's still plenty of cute stuff left in the store.

P.S. We are going to have a very white Christmas here in IL. snow every where.

Christmas at the Niles Plaza

The picture in the post below this one is the plaza during the day and all the fall color. This is actually a little after dark and when the Depot Christmas lights are on. BEAUTIFUL! I drove some of the back streets as I left town. It's defiantly worth taking a night drive through Niles.

Beauty in Niles

For once I had my camera with me and so I was able to take this picture of the Niles Plaza and all the beautiful little trees turning color. All I can think about is how wonderful they are going to be when they grow up! Look at the hills they are trying to get some green on them.
My husband and I were driving around Fremont the other day and there are so many beautiful trees to admire I said "well that's one thing you can say for Fremont, they have really planted a lot of trees and THAT'S A GOOD THING!
