Violettes

The 2021 Violettes Collection celebrates the Violet

Brushed with cheery shades of purple and adorned with sweet violets, uniquely created bears and animals celebrate the fragrance of violettes. Spring greets the skin as butterfly wings greet the air, Warm winds and rain kiss the soil to waken the seeds. The flowers come, each one so delicate yet strong. And in this time of newness our hearts are filled with joy

When Flowers Bloom  so does HOPE

Vintage Valentine

The 2021 Vintage Valentine Collection celebrates Valentine’s day

The loving heart is a gift, not simply to the person who keeps it safe in their heart, but to everyone whose life they touch. Such a heart sends out ripples of love that keep on going in the present and into the future. Fill your heart with love as often as you can, and you will be a blessing to all.

“If there comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever” Winnie the Pooh

Bear of the Month 2021

The Bear of the Month Collection for 2021 is all about flowers. Every month of 2021 a special bear is created in honor of the flowers we love. A different flower is chosen each month as inspiration for the creation of a new bear.

I must have flowers, always and always. Claude Monet

Deck the Halls

The Deck the Halls Collection celebrates Christmas Decorating

We gather on this Christmas Eve, welcomed by the fragrant smells of cookies baking and the hot chocolate with candy canes and marshmallows. Light the hearth and watch the yule log burn brightly as we sing joyous Christmas carols.

Place a wreath of berried holly on the front door and green garlands on the stairs. Snowmen standing all around and stocking hung with care. Light the candles, hang the mistletoe and add the poinsettia centerpiece.

Deck the Christmas tree with tinsel and sparkling lights then prepare to hang each ornament. Some new treasures and all the special ones that bring memories of the past. A beautiful angel placed at the top of the tree, and beneath the branches lay the manger where Jesus was born.

Let the magic of the season, and the Child born in the manger, live within your heart all year through

Candy Cane Lane

The Candy Cane Lane Collection celebrates all the sweets of the Christmas Season.

I know a place where the Peppermint moon floats through cotton candy clouds..

Candy Cane Lane is where snowflakes dance upon your nose, and the Sugar-Plum Tree grows. It blooms on the shore of Lollipop Sea, where the starlight shines so brightly. In a garden where the fragrant fir trees sing, the sugar-plum tree bears fruit so wonderfully.

Gumdrop road leads down to Soda Straw Seas, where gummy fishes swim around a ribbon candy reef. Go sailing on a giant spearmint leaf with lollipop paddles, to reach the Sugar Shore. Walk through Cinnamon Woods filled with marshmallows and giant peppermint canes. Pluck candied apples from sparkling trees, or swing on licorice ropes.

Ski down Sundae Slopes where the smell of chocolate is distinct. The land is filled with a million chocolate teddy bears. Some are dark and some are light, some are very, very white. Some are standing six feet tall, And some are very, very small. They are round and thin with frowns and grins. You can even dance with the ones that wear shoes and hats.

Love, lights and beautiful sights, are always found on the candy land streets. As your visit comes to an end, may your visions of sugar-plums bring back memories of Candy Cane Lane.

The sweetest moments of the season are the times we share

Christmas Memories

With the Christmas Memories Collection, we remember Christmas of long ago…

Frosty days and ice-still nights, Fir trees trimmed with tiny lights. Sound of sleigh bells in the snow, That was Christmas long ago.

A time, when by the tree, the children watch so eagerly. As shining bells are put in place, and wonder fills each tiny face. The delicious fragrance in the air of roasting turkey and mince pies, and cookies everywhere. dreaming of days that used to be, when we hid present for all the family. Stocking hanging in a row, Sugarplums and candle glow, Part of Christmas long ago.

Starry nights so still and blue, good friends calling out to you. when amidst the candlelight, The choir begins, “Oh, Holy Night”. Life will always slow… For dreams of Christmas long ago.

A shelter from the winter storm, a straw-lined manger safe and warm. Mary crooning lullabies, to hush her baby’s sleepy sighs. The angels proclaim for all to know, Tells of Christmas long ago

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.  And may God bless us everyone.

Too Cute to Spook

The Too Cute to Spook Collection celebrates the Trick or Treat time of the year.

The trees are laughing once more, dressed in their carnival clothes, the gold and scarlet of the autumn days. Take in the fresh calm air with that hint of an earthly aroma, the fragrance of homeliness. The front door is wrapped in orange lights that look like miniature pumpkins.

Jack o’lanterns line the street as varied as the imaginations of their carvers and no two are exactly alike. They are aglow and flickering into the biting Halloween night air, greeting the costumed children who skitter from house to house. When the candy runs out, the candles are extinguished…and the jack o’lanterns sit glum and silent, the memories will live on in the hearts of the children who are “too cute to spook” and another Halloween draws to a close.

There is magic in the night when pumpkins glow by moonlight

Masquerade

The Masquerade Collection begins the Autumn Celebration at a masked ball.

It’s time for the harvest festival… filled with costumes of bold yellows, magenta, cyan and emerald green bringing delight and fun for all. Sequins sparkling in the brilliant evening light and feathers of every color, float along with toe tapping music and taste tempting treats. We remember the pure enchantment, and shall cherish the memories of the joy it brought one Autumn evening.

Behind every mask is a face, and behind every face is a story
