New Year

Hello Firefly FANS and almost Happy New Year!  Don't you just love this time of year?  I love a fresh start, recreating, buying, and just getting inspired all over again.  2011 promises to start off with a bang too with lots to do, as we prepare for our 15th year in business.  So thank you for your love and support,  I look forward to seeing your bright, smiling faces in the store.  Best to you and those you love, Nan

P.S.  I  also love this artist Holly Farrell.  There is just something charming about them.  I love the fact that she captures and celebrates everyday objects.  Simple Pleasures, which is in a nutshell, what Firefly is all about... xo!

stocking stuffers 101

Here are my favorite KIDDO stocking stuffers...

The original sound machine and the best-seller  still.
Gun shots to breaking glass to farts.
Simple Pleasures, right?!

If you just can't do Farts or Burps.  This is a
popular one too.  Think Fred Flinstone and Looney Tunes!
All Cartoon Sounds.  We also have a new Space Age one too.
$ 14.00 each

Leaping Lizards!  This is still a best-seller.  These flashlights are
super bright and super fun.  They can clip on a backpack or
a keychain.  $8.50 each

Scented colored pencils, as well as regular pencils.
Still a store hit.  $16.95 

For the Little Tots, these super soft little blankets are the
perfect size for snuggling. Available in dog, zebra, monkey, and  giraffe.
$12.95 each
Definitely for the older kids or  the kid at heart.
These super strong magnets provide lots of entertainment.
Super office gift too! $29.95 each

I love Snoopy and I love Hot Chocolate. Three tins of cocoa from
The Peanut Gang.  $11.95

Really Blackberry Bubble gum, but Fun!
$5.50 each

Recycled paper, scented pens!  $2.50 each
These monster pencil/eraser heads come in packs
of two!  Collect all six.  $3.00 for a doodling duo.
Scented erasers that look good enough to eat!
We have apple(shown), peach, banana, and strawberry.
$4.00 each

You'll chuckle when you see these guys dance!
Not pictured, the Gingerbread Man.  He ran away.
Santa, Elf, Rudy, and Gingerbread Man

Stay tuned for Adult stocking stuffers tomorrow.  If you spend more than $50.00, we will ship for free, in the state of GEORGIA.  This offer is good until December 17th.  Merry Christmas, Nan

just in

Hello-  These just came in and they are my FAVORITE THING, possibly ever!  Believe me if I came home, after working retail, and made three arrangements for my mantle... Well, that is called inspired!Hand carved wood, completely food safe... There next place will be on my counter, holding various things, like salt or nuts!  For the arrangements, I put in a nifty little "frog" (a small iron container that holds flowers, also available at Firefly), and raided my neighbor's bountiful bush.  Blankets also came in and they are divine as well.
Come see or call- 229-226-6363!

We have so many perfect "hostess happys".  Yes, I know that is a made up word, but you know exactly what I am talking about...  A "happy" is a wonderful little something-something that you would not necessarily buy for yourself,  (Although you should, but that is another post).   Anyway, these just came in yesterday, and let's just say YUMMY SWEETNESS!  Organic salted caramels handmade with maple,dairy, honey, sea salt, and vanilla bean.  So come in and grab a few for all the upcoming parties, including my favorite, THANKSGIVING!  This is the perfect hostess happy!  S.W. A. K., Nan

Remember Rebecca Wood of Athens, GA will be here Friday,  November 19th and Saturday, November 20th, with all of her one-of-a-kinds!!!!   call for more info 229-226-6363

 FINALLY, a Real CHILL is in the air...

TONIGHT, stop in Firefly &  get inspired, & get COZY!  I am loving this new organic cotton sleepwear/ loungewear VieandSomn (life and sleep).  It is so well designed and simply beautiful. More on COZY, I was fluffing the store yesterday and realized that I have a candle problem.  I love candles!  I am also picky about the candles, I love!   NOTHING is more COZY than a candle.  It is the perfect hostess gift, birthday present, or just a "happy" for me gift!  We have over 25 scents throughout the store.  See I do love a CANDLE!  Yes, can you guess?  More are on the way!  I also heart a good bar of soap, preferably French.  They just make better soap.  The new holiday bars from Mistral are yummy.  They are also extremely beautiful.  Let us tie one up with some raffia, ribbon, and an acorn!  One final thought on COZY- our ongoing  everyday deal on our Scottish 100% cashmere scarfs! 1 @ $24., 2 @$40., 3@$54.  Crazy Steal Deal, that is what my "girls" call it.  Frankly, I just think everyone should have multiple scarves.  I think it is a human right.  O.K., that might be crazy...  I think, at the least, every female in the world should have multiple.  They just look so GOOD!  Alright,  I might have a scarf problem.  Yes, can you guess? More are on the way!  Cool and Cozy, Nan

P.S.  Did I mention Blankets?  Amazing blankets are on their way... stayed tuned for more COZY.

Here are the very pretty Mistral Holiday Soaps!  Remember SILHOUETTE ARTIST TOMORROW!
**********Just a few spots left!  For more information, call the store at 229-226-6363************

Here are some pics from the Market yesterday.  I think everyone had fun.  The masks and pumpkins were a hit, and now BOTH are available at Firefly.  We will be selling the mask now year round.  I think every child should have ALL of them... I will be hanging them in my boy's room soon.  I think we will be moving back into our house this week.  What does that have to do with Firefly?  My well-being.  Short-term, I might be wearing running shoes all  next week  or at least in my mind.  Long-term, I can't wait to get back into my home, my nest, my hearth; Surrounded by those who I love-my family, my hood, and my friends. I love my Space. HOoRay!

Saturday, November 20th
Welcome my former "boss", landlord, and friend, Rebecca Wood of Athens, GA.  Rebecca has
been creating beauty in every aspect of her life;  She just happens to be known for her pottery, which we
have been selling for years.  My R.Wood dishes are still one of my very favorite things.  What she is bringing will be one of a kind pieces, including images of poke berries and cotton!  If that wasn't enough to send me over the edge, she is bringing original drawings as well.  I almost fell out on the floor when she told me that!  I have been begging for YEARS!  She is a painter first and foremost, so get ready... 

Also, for a little icing on the cake, I have rounded up my own wildlife artist...We will debut 20+ original watercolors with animals ranging from whales to giraffes, hummingbirds to trout, sea turtles to quail.   Almost all of these will be under $150, framed and matted!  See some examples below and stay tuned for more!
Needless to say,  I can't wait for all of these events.   I leave you with this photo that a customer just sent me.  This adorable outfit is currently available at  THE FIREFLY.   Thanks for sharing the photo.  You can't get much cuter than that!
OH,  Ursula Page just opened a Downtown Studio.  You can visit her there or go here.  Welcome
Ursula, I can't wait to come see the space.  Happy Fall Folks! Nan

If you are not a fan of pumpkin pie, that is O.K.  I promise though, you will be a fan of this candle.

but fabulous things are coming in everyday!  See you at The Fly, Nan

More Favorite Fall Finds...

This is my favorite time of year.  However, the weather is not cooperating.  I keep thinking any day now, there will be a little snap in the air.  At FIREFLY, we are more than ready.  Here are some of my favorites, to set the mood.  Himalayan Candles just keep getting better and better.  I have carried her candles since the get go, and I am so in love with these vintage indian spice tins.  We have three great Fall scents- CAMPFIRE, CINNAMON APPLE, and VANILLA HAZELNUT.   They are yummy.  We are also carrying our  100% cashmere scarves again from Scotland and at really great prices.  Buy 1@ $24., Buy 2@ $40., Buy 3 @ $54.!  I was in Scotland, August a year ago,  and you couldn't even begin to buy cashmere at these prices.  I don't know how she does it, but I'm not complaining... stay tuned for more!

P.S.  My youngest rugrat walking down one of our favorite fall paths.
