Getting Crafty

Hello everyone, and happy Wednesday to you! Today I have a few fun home decor and gift items to share with you that are perfect for all you Do-It-Yourself folks out there. If you are looking for that personalized touch to add to your homes or that special one-of-a-kind gift idea,we’ve got you covered. And if you haven’t been into the Greenhouse lately, do stop by. We’ve got new goodies arriving daily that you won’t want to miss.

Like these adorable scarecrow kits that will add a charming touch to your harvest decor.

Young and old alike are going to love these metal gourd kits. Simply insert the pieces as you like into a pumpkin or gourd, creating a smiling face in no time. This kit can be reused year after year, and works equally well in real or faux pumpkins. Doesn’t this scarecrow look adorable in the planting basket with a touch of recycled paper as a ruff?  And if you like this guy, you’ll love the turkey kit, too.

The turkey kit comes complete with metal head, feet, and tail-feathers to make one adorable, re-usable turkey decoration every year.

Another wonderful do-it-yourself project in the Greenhouse right now is the Remake It wine cork trivet.

Recycle your old wine corks into a trivet with this easy kit. Simply twist your corks onto the metal trivet, and you are done. It’s as simple as that. What a perfect way to showcase corks from your travels or special gatherings and occasions. Makes a fabulous gift for the wine enthusiast on your list. And, it’s a great way to recycle, as well.

If you’re looking for truly personalized artwork, take a look. You can spell any name, word, or phrase with these mix and match alphabets and create your very own one-of-a-kind personalized masterpiece.

Each letter of the alphabet is represented with a unique black and white photo using architectural elements for the font. We have 3, 4, 5, 6, or more celled frames to help you create the perfect art piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you all soon down at Garden Supply.

Fun for the Kids

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! I hope your weeks are off to a productive and wonderful start. This is a big week for many, as Wake County schools open their doors to a new year for those on the traditional calendar. Back to school time means fall is just around the corner, bringing with it seasonal fun and cooler temperatures.  Won’t it be nice to be able to get back in the garden again after this rather hot summer?

For all the kiddos out there who are getting ready to go back to school, or who have already been going on the year-round schedule, we have a few special treats for you down at Garden Supply. We have just received a seriously silly, seriously fun selection of fun bands in the Greenhouse. Your kiddos are going to love the new scented, mini, tye-dye, glittered, seasonal, and glow-in-the-dark varieties.

We also have a very special visitor to the garden center that I know your kids will adore. Please say hello to Alvin, the prairie dog!

Prairie dogs are burrowing rodents native to the grasslands of North America. On average, these little guys will grow to be between 12–16 inches long, including the short tail, and weigh between 1–3 lbs. They are found in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Alvin is just visiting, and may not be around for long, so do stop by the Greenhouse if you get a chance, soon. It’s not often you’ll get the chance to come face-to-face with a prairie dog!

Thanks for stopping by everyone!  I’ll see you back here soon for more snippets from the garden.

Let's Take a Walk

Come take a walk with me through the Greenhouse.  There are LOTS of new goodies arriving daily that will brighten your homes, celebrate the upcoming change of season, and put you in the mood for a little holiday fun. I’ve brought my camera along.  Let’s see what’s new together.

This is just the beginning of the new treasures to see down at Garden Supply.  If you’re in the area, stop in and say hello.  We’d love a visit from you. Remember, also, we would be happy to mail you a goody or two from the Greenhouse if you can’t make it in soon.

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  I’ll be back before long with more snippets from the garden.

Halloween Haunts

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday to you all!  I’ve just come from Garden Supply where I toured the Greenhouse to peek at all the new goodies that have been arriving for Fall and Halloween.  And of course I brought my camera. So how would you like to take a little tour with me? We can see what’s new together.

This is just a small sampling of what you’ll find in store for you down at the garden center.  Come see for yourself…….

If you DARE!!!!

Deals to Share

Good evening everyone and happy Monday to you!  I hope your weeks are off to a wonderful start. We have a couple of special deals going on this week at Garden Supply that I am excited to share with you. It’s hot outside, that’s true, and gardening might not be tops on your to-do list right now, but these deals are too good to miss!

First off, Keith was able to find a fabulous deal on B-Grade mulch that we are happy to be able to pass along to you, our treasured customers.  If you are needing to mulch your large natural areas or playgrounds, this is the special for you.  Now thru August 15th you can get this mulch for just $10 per yard. And to make it even “sweeter”,we are offering free delivery in Cary, Apex, and Morrisville. ($20.00 delivery elsewhere). Now that’s a deal!

Another deal you won’t want to miss is our 50% markdown on all last minute summer annuals. Freshen up your bedding areas and container gardens with a pop of bright color that will last until fall, and enjoy spectacular savings.  We still have lots of fresh and beautiful plants to choose from.

And for those of you who may have missed out on our Gardener’s For the Cure drive earlier this summer, it’s not too late to get in on the great deal we have going.

We are still offering a 12% discount card good on ALL purchases at Garden Supply through the end of the year for every $100 or more donation made to the Komen Foundation. We also have our adorable team tees available for $10.

In other news, Fall and Halloween decor items are arriving daily to the Greenhouse. Come check them out because these goodies tend to head out the door about as quickly as they come in.

Thanks so much for stopping by everyone!  Hope to see you all soon!

Off to Market

Good evening everyone and happy Saturday to you!  I hope you all are having a marvelous weekend so far. If you have ventured over here in the past couple of weeks, you probably couldn’t miss the state of flux and chaos in the store. Since we had to move everything around to replace the plastic on the roof, Deb decided it was a good time to move LOTS around! We are gearing up for Fall and making room for all the new gifts and decor coming in.  And on that note, Deb and gang went off to the Atlanta Market this morning! I can’t wait to see what’s new and trendy not only for now, but the Spring season as well. I will fill you in when they get back next week…..and start expecting new products to arrive by the end of the month.

And in the mean time, come beat the heat with a little summer sale on all our indoor and outdoor water fountains and features.  When it’s this hot outside, sometime just the sound of running water will help keep things cool. If you have considered adding a fountain or pond to your landscape, this is a great time. From now, until the end of the month, ALL fountains and pond-building supplies are 20% OFF. We have a wide array of fountains from “table-top” styles to grand statements. We offer delivery and installation of fountains as well as design and installation of ponds and waterfalls.

I also want to remind everyone that there are still some great deals to be had on remaining clearance items in the Greenhouse. All sale stickers are marked at least 50% off…pink tag items are 70% off.

All Tyler Candle products are 70% markdown.  And there are plenty of remaining sale goodies on our sidewalk sale carts marked at 70% off.

So although things may be burning outside, we’ve got some real cool deals for you down at Garden Supply. Come check us out and stop back here soon for information on what’s in store for you after our fun shopping spree in Atlanta.

Thanks for stopping by everyone!  Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekends.
