Thirty days until Christmas??!!!

Ho Ho Ho!!! Oh Oh Oh!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Design Studio and to all of you who stopped in this 
week-end to celebrate our open house and visit Mary Ann Johnson who brought her fabulous personalized ornaments, we say THANK YOU!!

If you missed Mary Ann, we have samples at the shop of her adorable ornaments, 
light up wine bottles and stemware...all can be personalized with name, year, school affiliation...she will be back at the shop in several weeks.. date and time will be announced soon, in plenty of time for 
gift giving.

To wrap up the festive week end, Linda was thrilled to receive the $50 gift certificate! Congratulations!!

How can we help you with your decorating dilemma...mantle, home entrance, table, tree, book shelf, staircase, etc???  We love helping you!!
Perhaps the easiest way to start is know what colors make you silver/green your first choice?

We adore greens and silver and want to share our vision with you...bring your photos of areas you need advice,  your lists, your questions...we are here to help make decorating fun and festive!

Do you prefer Christmas reds and greens?  Whether whimsy or traditional, we offer many choices for small areas to grander scale.

Yum! Laurie brought in her fabulous home made dark chocolate/peppermint toffee!
Priced at $6 for 1/4 pound and $12 for 1/2 pound, it makes a wonderful hostess gift or a treat for 
you and yours.

Available in white or black, this magnificent monogram can be delivered in time for gift giving...allow 10-14 days.  Also a great wedding gift!

Holiday store hours are Sunday 11-4 and Monday through Saturday 10-5.  We hope to see you soon!

We're thankful for YOU!

Prayers of thanks and special thanksgiving ceremonies are common among all religions after harvests.
In the United States, the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is commonly traced to a 1621 celebration in present day Massachusetts.  

Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving Day is currently celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November by federal legislation in 1941. It has been an annual tradition by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation before that.

Traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal, it is a time for many people to give thanks for what they have.

We are thankful for you!
We are blessed to serve you at Design Studio.  It is a pleasure to welcome you to our shop and to gladly listen and help you as you choose for yourself or others.  
We appreciate the kind words you have shared with us and others, the pictures you show us and your enthusiastic response to our merchandise choices, our programs and more.

We wish you the blessings of the season and look forward to serving you, your friends and your families.
