Willow House Wednesday


 Well, Willow House Wednesday had to be delayed again.  Yesterday was not a fun day; I had to have a spinal injection, and it knocked me for a loop.  I thought I'd be able to lay low yesterday afternoon and have some extra computer time...um, no, I was fairly knocked out.  Today is such a better day!

Lots of news for Willow House today!  First of all I am featured on Kitchen Belleicious today; I am a new sponsor over there, and Jessica is spotlighting my business today.  There is also a little giveaway that you might like to go over and sign up for....a little gift certificate to Willow House!!!  She almost makes me blush, the way she lavishes love on me!  Such a sweet girl, and also a La. native as I am...one day I hope to meet her in real life and give her some hugs!!!    She has some great things going on on her blog, too, as well as her  Belleiciouskids blog .....such an inspiring blogger and Southern girl and mommy!  So go on over and check her out.....and sign up for that giveaway!

Ok, on to Willow House news.......what great ideas we have for Christmas gifts....especially if you need multiple gifts.  Not only can you take advantage of our Customer Special, which goes like this.....buy anything for at least $39.96 (regular or eOutlet items) and then you qualify to get one regularly priced item valued at $40 or less for 1/2 price!!! but we have some awesome buys!!!  What retail store does that for you????  And it can be shipped directly to your doorstep.  Kind of like Santa's elves doing your Christmas shopping for you!!
Here are a few ideas for you.....
Buy our Estate Trivet Trio (a rectangular intricately designed trivet as well as two round ones); bake (or even buy) three loaves of bread, wrap in cellophane and a cute, cute ribbon, and you've got three great gifts suitable for anyone!  The Estate Trivet Trio sells for $31.96, so that's three gifts for about $35.00!

We also have some single trivets in our eOutlet, that could be used in the same way.....for only $6.96 each....



The Napa Trivet in the eOutlet sells for $6.96 each



How about another idea?  Buy a set of Yuletide Votive Holders, and you get FOUR!  Divide them up and fill them with various things that will delight the gift recipient....what will it be? Godiva chocolate, Starbucks gift card, a yummy smelling candle,  pretty peppermints, even a gift card to the carwash for that man that is so hard to buy for!!!  Look at these...aren't they adorable??
the Yuletide Votive Holders are even on sale thru November for only $23.96 plus S/H and tax for FOUR!

Another gift idea for you, perfect for personalizing with an etched glass monogram...you can buy the kits at any hobby store and put an initial on the front of the Hawthorne Hurricanes...and guess what? The purchase price of one at $39.96 qualifies you to buy another one at 1/2 price!! Isn't that awsome?  So here's a pic of the Hawthorne  Hurricane in all her beauty!!!

Hawthorne Hurricane....etched with an initial, perfect for a personalized gift! Doesn't that look YUMMY???

One more idea for gift giving, especially for hostess gifts or neighbor gifts.....two different ornaments that we sell are also benefitting various charities that we support.  This set of Gail Pittman hand painted ornaments, not only is gorgeous, and ON SALE!, but some of the proceeds of the sales go to our philanthropic cause of "Cut It OUT!"....a program in which we help hair stylists recognize signs of domestic abuse, and try to help those clients deal with it in a helpful way.  I can tell you more about that if you are interested...here is the special sale for this trio, which normally is sold only individually.  For November, we are selling this trio for only $39.96--and they are all handpainted.

Gail Pittman Hand Painted Ornaments, sold as a trio in November, for $39.96
The second is the Roxy Reindeer Ornament, which will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research.....Here is Roxy!  He sells for $10.96 this month.

So let me finish up here with a recipe as I typically do here on my Willow House Wednesday post......um, yes, except it's on Thursday this week...she sheepishly grins........

It's a great gift  idea for Snowman Soup......great for Christmas gifts to have for cold, winter days....you'll find that on a post I did before....You'll find it here.  There is a wonderful sugar cookie recipe as well as the Snowman Soup recipe and poem that goes along with it.  Have a terrific Thursday, my friends!!!

Oh, yes, you can find my website at southerninspiration.willowhouse.com, and when you click on the Orange "Shop Online" circle, it will take you to our online catalog as well as our eOutlet and our Weekly Deals.  You will not be disappointed!  If you add my name, Suzanne Joffrion,  as hostess when  you are checking out, then I will also do a giveaway among the shoppers that shop by November 30th.  Products are shipped directly to you in about as quick as you can gather the supplies to wrap them; please come back and let me know you shopped so that I can add you to the drawing.  thanks, friends!
And remember to go on over to KitchenBelleicious to enter the giveaway!!!
