'Tis the Season

'Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la.

I've never been the girl on the right.  Oh, I have every intention of being very organized and getting all of my shopping done early.  The truth is, I am usually the one in the long line at the post office waiting to pay more for expedited shipping than the cost of the gifts themselves - because I waited to the last minute.   

So today is "black friday".  As the proprietor of a retail business, I considered kicking off the holiday shopping season by getting up at 3:00 a.m. and "opening doors for business" as many of the big box stores did this morning.  Then I rolled over and went back to sleep.  Ah, the beauty of the internet.

What I have done is enabled the new coupon code in my Etsy store - everything is 15% off through December 12.  Just enter the code "HolidayFun2010" at checkout.  And I've extended the Fall is in The Air sale at poppies until December 12, too.  You'll find some great deals over there - and don't worry - if you procrastinate a little bit like me, keep checking in, as I'll be adding fresh new goods throughout the season.

Happy holidays to you, and I hope you and yours have a fun, festive season.  Most of all, I wish you peace, and hope you're able to slow the pace down a bit to truly enjoy the blessings of the season and the love of family and friends.  

     * p.s.  Have you noticed our new look?  poppies is reinventing itself a little...You know how they say cottage style is more of an attitude than a style?  poppies is feeling it..with just a little attitude.  I'd love to hear what you think.
