Everyone Needs a Cute Keyring

We just got these adorable keyrings in!  You can't see the sparkle
but they all have glitter on them.  They are all made with love in the USA.
Each photo is  approx. 1.5"x1" with heavy chain. 
I can't decide which one I need.
They will be up on our website later today.

Engagement Chicken?

This morning on Martha Stewart they had Glamour Magazine's new cookbook
"100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know"

Rumor has it this easy-to-make roast chicken with ultra-crisp skin and subtle lemon flavor will inspire your boyfriend to pop the question. Serve with Baked New Potatoes for a marriage-worthy meal.
So here it is.  Maybe pass this on to anyone you know who is trying to get that man to commit. 
I am planning on giving this book to my girls for their show gifts.

1 (4-pound) chicken

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 whole lemons, plus 1 sliced crosswise, for garnish

1 tablespoon coarse salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Fresh herbs, such as 4 sprigs rosemary, 4 sprigs sage, or 8 sprigs thyme

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees with rack set in upper third.
2.Remove giblets from chicken and rinse chicken inside and out with cold water. Set chicken, cavity-side down, in a colander to drain for 2 minutes. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and place breast-side down in a medium roasting pan fitted with a rack; pour lemon juice all over chicken, inside and out. Season chicken, inside and out, with salt and pepper.

3.Pierce whole lemons three times with the tines of a fork; place pierced lemons inside cavity. Using kitchen twine, truss chicken to enclose. Transfer roasting pan to oven and reduce temperature to 350 degrees; roast for 15 minutes.

4.Remove roasting pan from oven and, using tongs or two wooden spoons, turn chicken breast-side up. Return chicken to oven and cook until a thermometer inserted into the thigh reaches 180 degrees and juices run clear when thigh is pierced with a fork, 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.

5.Let chicken stand 15 minutes before carving. Transfer carved chicken to a serving platter and pour juices from roasting pan over chicken. Garnish with lemon slices and fresh herbs; serve.
I think I can even make this, looks really easy!!
These potatoes go well with the engagement chicken


Serves 2 to 4

Decorating with Clocks

 What makes decorating with clocks so easy is that there isn't too much to match.  It's just mainly the size that most of our customers are looking for.  If you have a huge wall, instead of cluttering it up with lots of art work, just simplify by adding a great clock.  Below are some great rooms that may inspire you to just add a clock.  We have some great ones in stock ranging from table to extra large wall clocks.

Stop in anytime and we can help you find just the right one.
