New Product Spotlight: Metal Roosters and Ducks

It's always fun to add new products to our website.  We already offer thousands of really great items, but when I get to update the site with new items, I get excited because I know people are just going to love them!  

We offer several different types of roosters, hens and ducks in polystone and ceramic, but these new Metal Roosters and Hens are really great!  They are handcrafted metal and are specially designed with outdoor safe finishes, which makes them perfect for both indoor and outdoor decor.

Now, I know that chickens aren't for everyone... but come on, no matter what your style is, who can resist the bit of whimsy that these add.  I personally love chickens, and have a whole flock of them in my backyard, which is why I can't resist this guy, he's so cute.

This Red Pecking Rooster is also super cute.

There are also two great metal ducks, and although I'm not usually a duck lover, these two are really precious, and I could find it in my heart to love them.  I know that there are some serious duck lovers and collectors out there though, so for those of you that are...  check these guys out.

You can view all our new roosters and ducks, by clicking here.

Save Big Money with our Newly Updated Clearance!

I have to admit that I am kind of a deal seeker... I hate to pass up a good deal, and 50% off are some of my favorite words.  So if you're anything like me, you're going to love this blog post!

I don't know if you've seen it, but we have a great Clearance Section on our website.  In this section we have all kinds of great floral items and even better, we're now offering an additional 50% off of all our clearance items.

Here's a few of my favorite items that we currently have available.

These orchids are really beautiful, and are so lifelike you'll have everyone convinced that you have a green thumb.  We have several different options available including potted phaleanopsis and cymbidium orchids in glass vases with acrylic water.

Another great money saving idea is to purchase your holiday and seasonal wreaths during the off season.  These are the same high quality products that we offer in season, but rather than storing them, we like to offer them to our customers in our clearance section.

Even though summer flowers are poking up their heads here in the United States, down in the Southern Hemisphere it's the end of fall... and unfortunately summer will go by fast and fall will be here before we know it.  Check out this beautiful fall wreath, called The Great Pumpkin Wreath, and did I mention that it's also 50% off!

Christmas in May!  We have a few select styles available and ready to ship, and at 50% off you can't afford to wait till December.  Look at this lovely Amaryllis Christmas Wreath.
We have so much more than I can post here, so go and check it out yourself.
Remember to use the coupon code: FLO50 at checkout to receive your 50% off.

An Irish Wedding Blessing

According to my family history and my freckles, I have a good bit of Irish in my genetics.  I can't trace it back to a particular place, or person who crossed over, but it's in there somewhere.  Of course, I'm a mix of several different genetic pools, including Welsh, Irish, American Indian, Creole, and I'm sure many more.
I have always thought it would be fantastic to know exactly where you come from, and am always fascinated to  hear people who have researched their ancestry.  I was just talking with a woman the other day, and she said that her family name has been traced back to a castle in Ireland.  So cool.  Ruin or not, I'd want to go visit.

While I can't trace my Irish history back to a certain point, I can remember my wedding day just a little over 9 years ago.  On that day I married my wonderful husband, and have been blessed ever since.

What has me thinking of Ireland and weddings today, you might ask...  well...

We just updated a product today, called "An Irish Wedding Blessing."  We have offered this product for awhile, but it is now updated with a slightly different frame.  I think is is a nice improvement.  It is a dark brown frame accented with gold flecks, and it would go perfect in any Irish newlywed's home.

This framed art piece is really beautiful and is perfectly gift worthy with the gold flecked frame and the green die-cut mat.  The print inscribes the following:

As you travel life together,
may God guide you on your way,
And bring you newfound joy
in each other, day to day...
May your home be graced with peace,
may your sharing know no bounds,
May your friendship know full measure
in the lifetime love you've found...
And as your closeness deepens,
may each moment be the start
Of life lived hand-in-hand,
and love lived heart-to-heart.

We offer a great many different Irish gift pieces, including several other Irish Blessings.
