You are invited to join us at the shop Saturday, February 3rd, from 12 noon - 4 pm for our 

Healthy Living in 2018 Event

Kara Sayre, owner of Kara's Kuisine will be on hand to show us how to eat healthier and cook healthier using essential oils.  We'll have food samples to try as well.  

Here is Kara's Bio:

My name is Kara Sayre, owner of Kara's Kuisine.  I have been married for nearly 28 years and am a stay-at-home Mom with 2 children.  My, now 20 years old son, is a Lymphona Childhood Cancer Survivor and my 9 year old daughter is in the High Functioning Autism Spectrum with ADHD and Generalized Anxiety.  Through our life journeys I began researching how foods can help us feel better and heal our bodies. I believe easy clean nutrient dense eating is the best way to accomplish this. I began holding cooking classes in my home nearly two years ago with a goal to get us back in the kitchen cooking easy delicious meals that nourish our bodies.

Joining Mrs. Sayre will be Jennifer Ware who is a Health & Wellness Coach with doTerra Essential Oils.  Mrs Ware sells doTerra Oils in our shop and will educate attendees on the oil benefits and its many uses.  

We'll also be featuring Essential Oil Jewelry that is available to purchase.  Brenda Hackney of Welcome Home Gifts will be displaying her line of Essential Oil Necklaces.  Mrs Ware has some cute Essential Oil Snap Charm Diffusers available for shoppers as well.

For additional information, you may contact the shop

One of my New Year's resolutions is to blog more this year for the shop!

If you love to make dinners in your crock pot, then you are going to love this post.  

I'm a huge fan of recipes that don't have a lot of ingredients in them.  Especially, because it can be very costly to make the dish and then you never use all the stuff you bought again for a year.

Here's a simple dish to make when you are having company.  I borrowed it from one of my dealers, Brenda, who happens to carry her own line of salsa in our shop.   It's called 
"McGill's Gourmet Salsa" and all the salsas are yummy and made in Georgia.  It's available in the following flavors:  
Peach salsa, Apple salsa and Chunky salsa.

I used the Peach salsa with the chicken breasts (boneless).  So just place the 4 chicken breasts in the crock pot, pour the one jar of salsa on top and that's it!  

I cooked it on low for 6 hrs and the chicken was so tender and that it broke apart with a fork.

You just serve it with some rice/veggies and you have a meal fit for a king!

The salsa sells at the shop for $8.00 for a 18 oz jar. 
 And the best part, salsa is considered low fat and healthy for you!

Do you have a easy, low fat crock pot recipe that you like to make?

Happy New Year & Happy Cooking!

Spring Flowers, Deer and Blooms........

Just love Springtime here in Atlanta........we have the most beautiful blooms and flowers this time of the year.

The deer enjoy all the vegetation too!  Here are some photos of our blooming baskets and knockout roses in the yard at home.  Blooms are plentiful this year because we are using a great new product.  Keep reading, and I'll tell you about our secret to bloom success further down in the blog post, I promise.  :)

Thanks to a product we carry at the shop, called Deer-Out, we now have fabulous blooms every year.  The spray smells like mint, doesn't harm the environment or the deer.  The deer just sniff it and walk away and eat the non-blooming scrubs.  There's plenty for them to eat in our yard!

The Critter Out and Rabbit and Groundhog Out work great too. 

We sell all the products at the shop for $15.99 a bottle.

What do you use in your yard to keep the blooms never ending?  Please share your tips here, we'd love to hear about them!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

It's that time of year's Spring and our Iron Bed in front of the store is in need of some sprucing up in the flower department.  So last Sunday was the day.....I grabbed my two helpers and we tackled the task!

Abby & Hubby assessing the work to be done.....

With the help of some great potting mix......the work began........

Placement always important......:)

Abby says are we done yet??????

We planted red geraniums.....

Replanted tow-ticklers to spill over the side rails......

Yellow portulacas for the side of the bed.....

Our morning glories from last summer re-seeded they will grow up the headboard again.........cant wait to see them bloom again............. 

Multi-colored petunias for the middle part of the bed......

And as I was walking on the property I spotted the last of the blooms on the Christmas Camelia.......

And of course, we couldn't forget the window boxes on the storefront........all new box containers and flowers for the new season........

Marigolds and petunias...........

Some ice plants......

And even our stone cherub on the side of the store, got a new head-dress!!!

I'll post photos later on this Spring/Summer, so you can see how the Iron Flower Bed is coming along and growing.

Our special for this blog post will be on our Deer-Off spray line.......25% off on your purchase from this line.
