We’re too big of fans of fairy gardens to be satisfied just with summer playgrounds.  We like to invite them inside to play all year long and now we offer the perfect sized planters to do just that. Putting together a perfect playscape for your magical friends can seem overwhelming but we’d had great success using our rule of three.  This is how we go about it.  Select 3 small plants (look for ones that .

We really enjoyed playing cupid last year and it warmed our hearts knowing our little packages of goodies brought smiles to deserving souls during the gray days of February.  Since it was our very first Cupid Call Campaign we were truly overwhelmed with the response rate.  Because of the large volume of nominations we were limited to selecting  only a percent of the nominees due to the cost of shipping all the packages.  In hopes of being able to shoot more .

Many of us know someone who has fought, won or lost the battle of breast cancer.  Our relationships with these women and men connect all of us in a unique way and we want to celebrate that with our Loops of Love campaign this October. To honor these amazing people in our lives we are linking together pink paper loops with the names of women and men you know that are fighting or have .

It’s been a couple weeks since we sent out a load of love to deserving souls and I must say we’re tickled pink to hear some of the stories about our surprise packages.  We originally planned on sending 100 packages, but due to the volume of nominees we ended up wrapping up around 180 cupid calls. We’d like to express our thanks to all the journalists who help spread the word, the nominators for .

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before but Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite  holidays.  Not because I like roses, fancy restaurants or chocolate (well, I do like chocolate) but because I like to surprise some of my girlfriends by sending them little treats in the mail.  I like to look at February 14th as an opportunity to bring a bit of color and joy into those grey cold days of February… because who .

We’re big animal lovers at catching fireflies so in celebration of Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, we’re partnering with Michigan Animal Rescue League to raise money & collect supplies for the many dogs and cats in Metro Detroit that need forever homes. The Michigan Animal Rescue League believes that every animal deserves the highest quality of life. Each and every animal that comes through their door is given unconditional love and regard in the .

It was just under a year ago when we first met our Ann Arbor manager, Katie.  We knew she was going to be a great fit for our latest location and an asset to our team.  We also knew she was only going to be with us for a short time since her fiance was finishing his doctorate in physics at U of M… but sadly that time came a little sooner than expected. .

It’s hard to believe that Steve and I first toured through our Ann Arbor location last year around this time. We dreamed and envisioned what we could bring to this space to make 419 Detroit Street a shine little brighter… … and I’m happy to say our vision has become a wonderful whimsy-filled reality (fairy bubble factory & all)! It has been a joy bringing our latest location to life so I was thrilled .
