Queen For A Day With A Simply Pretty Stuff Birthday Tiara

Special Tiara Day

For most of the day Saturday and Sunday, artisan Vicki wore this tiara as she worked a huge holiday show.  By the end, she simply could not be without this flirty piece! 
'It will make a wonderful and fun thing to share among friends," she said.  "We can take turns on our birthdays wearing the tiara. It will get passed around." 


Here is Vicki as she shows off her new Simply Pretty Stuff tiara!

Warehime Myers Mansion Hosts Successful Holiday Show

Christmas Show Success

There was no snow this weekend, but there was a sure nip in the air during the three day  Holiday to Harvest Show in Hanover, PA to put everyone in the Christmas present mood. 

Our gracious host, the Warehime Myers Mansion, now part of the Hanover Area Historic Society, was most welcoming to all our customers which included, Hanover High School Choir, Linda Huber at the Auto Harp, and of course, SANTA and Mrs Claus!!

I have included some of my Simply Pretty Stuff inventory pictures, as well as items from some of the other artists at our show.

Christina's Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

Coffee Breaking At Christina's

I have never been known to turn down a sticky sweet confectionery or two.   I surely do not deny myself at this wonderful coffee/pastry shoppe called Christina's.

Fortunately too, I have never been allergic to wheat. However, I do know lots of friends and family that cannot partake in foods with either wheat or sugar.

At Christina's, one of the temptations  IS the gluten free chocolate chippers and the sugar free nougat bar.  Mmmm.  For sure there are sugar sweetened things too.  I love love love the wheat free blondies though AND the multigrain bagels with pumpkin cream cheese!! 

The aroma is coffee for sure, and the decor, warm and welcoming.  Sit in the private alcove with crystal chandelier or enjoy the cozy sofa and wifi connection while you sip a hot chai this winter..........

I've met several friends at Christina's for a well deserved coffee break over the past few weeks.  While there I had the chance to chat a bit with Steve and Christi, a terrific husband and wife team behind Chistina's!!

Stop by and say hello and sample the delicious gourmet pastries, coffees or teas, or order special cakes, pies and cookies for your next special event.

Take a look at some of the scrumptious offerings at Christina's on Baltimore Street in Hanover.
