Happy Spring--Celebrate Small Business Week!


Spring came early here in south central Pennsylvania this year. The daffodil bloom above was the second of two that were rescued from the unseasonable weather. The first bud was left on the ground after a hungry deer took a mouthful from the middle of a clump of daffodils. The daffodil above survived being forced on the ground by a heavy, wet snow. The stem was bent and I carefully brought it inside and placed it in this tiny glass cup on the kitchen window sill where it enjoyed the morning sun and brightened the room for nearly a week. The cluster of dainty star flowers graced the ground in our bird bath garden.

And yes, this is Small Business Week, a week of national recognition by presidential proclamation that has happened each year since 1963. Did you know that nearly half of all Americans either own or work in a small business? 

This Spring has been a busy time for us in the jewelry studio. We're working on a major revamp of our website with changes in our jewelry inventory: new products, an expanded selection of Birthstone Jewelry,  a new collection of beautiful Swarovski Pearl earrings, necklaces, bracelets and pendants, all in classic colors; some current product closeouts, new jewelry photos and an overall "new look" to make your online jewelry shopping easy, enjoyable and fun! 

Next up on the Holiday Calendar is Mother's Day, May 14th. Treat your Mom to a lovely gift from our wide selection of beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pendants, all shipped to you via Priority Mail in a ready to give white jewelry box with a silver or gold cord and bow.
