ICE to see you!

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I enjoy a day off work as much as the next person but not when it’s because the roads are covered with ice.  If you enjoy snow then you are in the wrong area.  We here in North Carolina like our ice and lots of it.  Over the last month or so we’ve had no less than 5 wintry mixes.  Giving me ample opportunities to hone my balancing on ice skills as well as perfecting my snow cream recipe.  When the weather is less than desirable and down right dangerous, I make it a point to keep my behind at home.   I mean really, who’s jewelry shopping when it’s a task in itself just to walk to the front door without falling and breaking a hip.  SO for the record: If there’s snow and ice on the streets, call before you visit us.  Chances are we’ll be sitting by a fire at home…….where you should be.

Here is our family recipe for Snow Cream.

1 large bowl of snow (mixing bowl size)

1/2 can sweetened condinced milk

1 teaspoon vanilia flavoring

1/4 cup sugar (more or less to taste)

tiny dash of nutmeg

add milk to desired, creamy texture.

Mix, mix, mix… and enjoy.

Awwwww, You love us.

We love you too!!  Once again we want to thank all you wonderful folks that let us be a part of your Christmas.  If I could give each and everyone of you a great big hug, I would.  We know that you work hard for every penny you make, most of you at least, and we do not take that lightly.  I think this past year we added around 6  new lines of jewelry in our store, that gave you more selection than ever at great price points.  Our new years DEDICATION to you is to continue what we started in 2010.   We have three jewelry buying trips planned so far this year and some great surprises coming up in the near future for you.   There is always room for improvement, so If there is something you would like to see from us, please let us know.   From the bottom of our hearts we love you all and consider ourselves blessed that you are a part of our lives.
