My Favorite Holiday Collection

I love to decorate the house for Christmas. Christmas trees, ornaments, wreaths, stockings, Santas, jingle bells, Christmas china, etc. You name it, I LOVE it!! One of my favorite Christmas presents every year is the Limited Edition Annieglass Snowflake plate. She makes a different one every year and they are gorgeous! I use them as platters for holiday parties and display them around our dining room the rest of the time. I love that they can be used throughout January, too!!
I have decided that when you are not around kids, Halloween is not really that big of a deal. I did not even eat one piece of candy today. And, since working at the store has gotten me in the Christmas spirit early, I thought I would start sharing about some of our Christmas items that are my favorites.

Etta B. Pottery

If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE Mississippi pottery. It really does not matter who makes it - it's all so unique, different, and gorgeous. The Square Cupboard just got in several new pieces of Etta B Pottery, and I LOVE IT!! Her prices are great, the look is different, her colors are bright, and her Christmas pieces are fabulous. She is from Etta, MS, and is relatively a new potter to the retail world. Her patina line (blue) would be perfect for any occasion. I especially think the serving pieces would be cute to serve with for a baby shower, springtime, or on Easter Sunday. I love how she has taken the non-traditional Christmas color and made it wintery so it will work for all seasons!
The pear line is my favorite. Of course, because green is my favorite color! This collection is perfect for every season also! Another great thing about Etta B. is that it is functional and pretty. So when you are not using it, you can decorate with it!
Hollyberry - The first Christmas line of Etta B. pottery. How cute is that?!?! I love the colors and I love the cute snowman. Perfect for carrying over through Christmas into January. I really love the plaid pieces that mix with her snowmen pieces. I am not one really for plaid, but I think her's is adorable. Who would have thought to put plaid on pottery?? But, it's cute!

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood came to Southaven last night! Let me just tell you, it was GREAT! She was awesome. That girl has some talent! I mean obviously, she won American Idol, but still - she can do everything!!
Jill, Erin, and I had a great time!

Yes, that microphone is pink! She rocked it at the end!!

Little Big Town opened for her. They were good, too!
