Stockings & Holiday Gifts 2017




Santa Ho Ho Ho!







Gift giving is at the forefront this holiday season along with parties, get together's, decorating, watching lights and everything jovial.  Shopping for a special someone, girlfriends or family members often is difficult after the teenage years.  More importantly, shopping can be time consuming and not always the best experience while jostling among the hoards of humanity.  Listed are a few tips for good measure.  Followed with 12 Days of Christmas presents to complete a Christmas tree, fill a stocking or a mantel.  Celebrate in-style and select quality items that are guaranteed to bring a smile to one and to all. 


Holiday Shopping Tips





  1. Shopping List: Make a list and a budget to follow.  
  2. Order Online:  For ease of use, ease of a click and ease of mind.  
  3. In-Store:  Do visit your favorite department store and experience the cheery vibe with a heavy swirl of chaos.  Perhaps grab a latte to prepare for impact. 
  4. Most Important Present Selecting Rules:
    1. What Would You Like?:  Think about what you would like to receive from others that is enjoyed by many when selecting gifts for parties, girlfriends or hostess presents.  IE:  Lip gloss, hand lotion, ornaments, candy, wine, small candles etc.  Keep the gift simple and elegant.
    2. Know Sizes of Clothing Apparel:   Know the sizes and styles of the beloved one. Often times the receiver of the gift will have to return the item.  Or perhaps they will love it.  Apparel can be tricky and it is a gamble. 
    3. Anything Small:  Small gifts are always perfect.
  5. Dress For the Holiday Experience:  Wear casual yet merry clothing for an upbeat shopping experience.  Dress to impress and embrace the festive mood.

Life is a Gift

A River Called Life



"Life is a precious gift.  Use your day wisely." 

Life is a river.  A thriving, glorious flowing body of water that twists and turns filled with fish, beavers, small creatures, birds, eagles, violent eddies, rough waters, and calm pools. Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life.  An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity.  The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across.  This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook.  A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes.  Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.   
Life can be tranquil at moments and then burst into a storm of anger, disbelief, or tragedy.   A life is easily compared to a roaring river as transitions in our world are extremely rapid.  It can be difficult for the human mind to assess what has transpired.   The result is be…

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas?

There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

Fourth Of July 2020

Home for the Holiday


"With freedom comes responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt
Parades, apple pie, contests, hamburgers, friends, family, and fireworks are the essential ingredients for a celebratory Fourth of July.  This year will be unforgettable as the Covid 19 virus has changed the celebration landscape.  The large gatherings, festivities and essential mix of fun are on the shelf across the country. We ourselves are accustomed to celebrating in the islands viewing a parade, taking walks, wildlife adventures, exquisite dinners and viewing incredible fireworks that fill the sky.  Though this is year is unique, never fret. 
We have an opportunity to slip back in time and create an old fashioned Fourth of July at home.  Many of you are wondering what to do.  Well, think back to when you were little.  What did you do then? 
Growing up in the Northwest, we had sparklers, black snakes, and fountains to light off in the driveway. We attended barbecues with family or friends and watched…
