Nativity Hurricane Flash Sale

ON SALE NOVEMBER 4th for $39.99 It’s beautiful – check it out today only!!

November is such a fun month…not just because it is the month of my birthday, but that is one of the reasons :)

I love November because it is the real beginning of Fall. In spite of what the calendar says, I don’t think it’s November until there is a chill in the air every morning. Yesterday, some of my South Carolina friends woke up to SNOW on the ground! Now that is crazy, but oh how I wish I were there. Instead I am enjoying rain and temps in the 40’s.

The leaves are falling fast, the sunsets are more beautiful and almost all the chestnuts have been gathered by my squirrel friends. Today I put away the jack-o-laterns and am enjoying my Fall mantle. And the best part of today? The extra hour of sleep last night!
