It's a rainy day outside (better than snow - we love snow, but it's still the start of November so we can do without 😆), so why not snuggle up in some blankets (grab a fuzzy one from BeHereNow!), whip up a cup of amazing cocoa, and plunk down for a favorite movie marathon!
Speaking of Best Of's - there's been some hubbub about The Examiner's nominations as well. There are a lot of Square places included, such as BeHereNow for Best Furniture Store, Under the Awning for Best Gift Store, Black Lemon Boutique By Brandy for Best Women's Apparel store, and SO MANY MORE!

And guess what? We couldn't help but take a peek and we've been nominated for Best Yoga Studio! So go take some time and check out all the categories and places and vote for all your favorites!
Beautiful window displays that make you have to go in when on the Square, but even virtually, the style and beauty of home furnishings never disappoints. Shop local and shop virtual.
“There are a million ways to kiss the ground. The way that you will honor your spirit animal is best just to come from your heart.” – Sarah Bamford Seidelmann

Been looking for a high quality backgammon set? Set in a stunning storm-blue case that feels great underhand, it neatly tucks away until the next game, or can easily be carried to a relative or friend's house for a round or two.

If you're wondering about other colors, BeHereNow carries a vivacious pink version!
You know what sounds good after all that Christmas dinner? A couple of chili dogs. A nice change of pace, gets you out of the house a bit, and hey, maybe see a movie afterward? (Or grab some of that 50% off merch at Gilbert Whitney & CO and BeHereNow.)
Holiday Open Houses are happening now! What does that mean? It means that on the Square places have sales, Christmas stuff, samples, and other fun things. We recommend you take a look and grab some gifts while you can get some savings, and maybe note a few things you'd like to have for yourself.

And in case you're wondering where this awesome-looking deer came from, go check out BeHereNow! Their Christmas goods are 20% off!
If you want a chance to win some free movie tickets, check out BeHereNow's post! (And if you haven't been in their place before, you should check it out - it's pretty cool!)

Operating as usual


Did you know that we have jewelry, too? Not only are we helping your home look pretty…we’re helping YOU look pretty, as well! Stop in and see what we have! (shop our inventory online!)

What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?


Sometimes life gives you...eggs? No, wait - lemons! Whether you put them in a basket to make lemonade or plant them to grow lemon trees, the fact remains, a long as you keep on going, you can make something wonderful out of them. Or at least get them out of your way. Add a few faux lemons for color or as a reminder of your ability to overcome obstacles in your life!


Just a quick heads up - we will be closed Monday for Memorial Day!


Maybe you can't make it in today. Maybe you don't need any decor or delightful candles or fun soaps right now. That's okay - there are all sorts of other ways you can help support small businesses that you love (like us!). Any time you don't need to shop, you can always do one of the following:

☑️ Follow our pages (if you don't already)
☑️ Like our posts (it helps extend our reach to others!)
☑️ Share our posts (helps us reach even more people!)
☑️ Comment on posts (social sites *love* us when you do this!)
☑️ Tag friends who would like them (you never know - you might help them find the perfect item!)
☑️ Post photos of our products (did you buy something? We'd love to see it!)
☑️ Tell friends about our products (word of mouth is POWERFUL!)
☑️ Write reviews and give feedback (anywhere you can - Facebook, Google, and more!)
☑️ Share our website (especially for those that don't live here locally!)

When people do a few of these, it really does help our business, and any other small businesses that you love. After all, we are only as strong as the customers that love our stores!


Speaking of green - how about a beautifully springy green couch? Decorate it any number of ways! We decided to throw a few delightful tasseled cream pillows on it, along with a simple throw. On the rustic table in front? A large brown vase to compliment the green, and a round white stone bowl filled with artichokes (because why have apples and oranges when you can have artichokes?). Plenty of different ways you can go about decorating - tell us what you would do with a couch like this!


A bit of green, a bit of white, a simple combination but oh so perfect for spring and summer. Together they bring a bright look to any room, and you can spruce bottles and vases up even more with fresh or faux flowers in any number of colors! What's your summer style?


Ever wish you had a bookcase that fit neatly in a corner? We might have one of those. 😉 Tuck it right in and then decorate it how you want. We've gone with a bit of a farmhouse chic look. Very simple with a few succulents, votives, small horse containers, and simple repurposed wood signs. What would you put in your corner bookshelf?


Mondays take courage. It's the start of a new week, new challenges to face, work to be done, etc.

You know what else takes courage? Being a pig. Everyone wants your bacon, on in other cases, the money you're carrying. 😆 🐖


Gaze upon our magnificent pillow wall! We have even more scattered throughout the store on our chairs and sofas to help give you ideas for your own home! What colors/patterns do you like best in your pillows?

So you've picked up a beautiful tray with a woodland scene etched into it - now what do you do with it?

Answer: Anything you like! Bowl of lemons (real or fake?) Sure! Simple catchall tray? Sure! Maybe you'll want flowers. Or use it as a breakfast in bed tray. Plenty of possibilities - what do you think you would use this lovely tray for?


Reading Glasses Ahoy!

Everyone loves to read! Make reading a little easier by picking up a pair of reading glasses next time you're out. Especially handy if you plan on relaxing at Cafe Verona with a good book and forget yours!


A few lovely ladies, a few fabulous bird houses, and several ways to make your walls fantastic - that's what we've got here! And then some. These are just a few ways you can make your home a little brighter, more sparkly, or more dramatic. What are you feeling like lately?


Heads up everyone! BHN will be closed today (5/16) and next Monday (5/23).


Go a little black and white in your decor if you're not feeling the va-va-voom of color this season. Black and white can be quite the stylish and bold look. Do you think it's something you'd like to try?


What do these make you think of? Magical crystal balls? Simple, stunning home decor accents? David Bowie (bonus points if you get the reference)? No matter what they put you in mind of, you can't deny that they're very pretty and mesh well with fabulous flowers in equally sparkling vases. Is this an arrangement you could see in your home?


Bright, sun-shiny days call for bright, fun displays. Fruits, delightful bowls, and a frame featuring friends, pets, and family can all come together in a sunny shelf for a lovely summery look. Don't have a sunbeam colored shelf or cabinet? You can paint one - or always get one from us!


Yikes - don't know about the rest of you, but a trip to the beach sounds good today! Unfortunately, we're a little far from there. So maybe deck out your home in beachy fashion to give you the seaside vibe and then kick it on the couch with some ocean wave sounds playing, the AC on, and a nice margarita in your hand. 😎🍹
