Featured Mother's Day Gift Idea

My calendar is a little wonky this year, how about yours? Did you know that Mother's Day is a short two weeks after Easter this year?

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8, 2011!

Our personalized featured product for Mother's Day 2011 is this totally custom and stylish monogrammed pendant necklace, with Mom's initials floating in the middle of the pendant and her child's names are engraved with black letter engraving around the outside.  This monogrammed necklace is a keepsake piece of jewelry Mom will love forever - it has her babies names on it!

Not only is this custom piece of jewelry beautiful, but it is totally affordable! Click over to to view the pricing, sizing, and details on our Mother's Necklace.

I thought I'd blog this out there because orders for our featured Mother's Day gift idea should be placed as soon as possible for timely delivery.

Happy Spring, Y'all!

Art After Hours, Historic Downtown Wake Forest

Every second Friday of the month, Historic Downtown Wake Forest comes alive with what is known as "Art After Hours". Downtown merchants are open until 9pm, with their door propped open on mild evenings welcoming you in to take a look around. Our downtown is totally unique with its boutique shops, restaurants, cafes, and art galleries. Sometimes you'll hear musicians playing on the street, in the shops or in the cafes, there is always something new at Art After Hours.

The Cotton Company features an Artists Reception and Wine Tasting during Art After Hours. Stroll through The Cotton Company Gallery to see the Artists work being featured that month, maybe get a chance to meet him/her and to take a look at The Cotton Company's resident artists' displays. Sip on the feature wine as you stroll the gallery. You can't leave The Cotton Company without strolling through the Marketplace to see over 60 boutiques, artists and crafts - you are sure to find a unique treasure for yourself, your home, or a gift.

Wake Forest Coffee Company is down the street, and you'll have to stop in to see what is brewing. Upstairs from the Coffee Company is the Twisted Vine Wine Shoppe.  Our favorite Mexican restaurant is Las Margaritas, located underneath The Lemon Tree Boutique and Cafe.  Stop in to have some dinner or hit Backfins Crabhouse for some seafood.

Our next Art After Hours is this Friday, March 11th from 6-9pm.  Come to your historic downtown and see what's going on!

I'll see you there!
