Gearing up for Festive Florals

We’re syked and ready y’all!! Cleaning up & prepping the area for our Festive Florals class being held here at Myra’s Garden tomorrow night at 6PM. This is a new class hosted by Myra’s and led by local Florist Jeanie Fry. We’re so excited to introduce something new and fun to you guys in the local community 🙂

As you should probably know by now… I am a lover of all things Pinterest… I am thrilled that there is now a place to search for and save ideas..projects..inspo..recipes..whatever..you name it it’s probably on Pinterest. As we are prepping for the Festive Florals class and decor-ing our Houses full of Christmas I am feeding my Pinterest addiction like a fat kid feeds on Cake… And believe that I can eat some cake people!!

Hehe… So I am currently desiring these projects in my near future 🙂

This snowflake looks so Chic with the White on Black theme. My walls are gray so I was thinking of painting my snowflake maroonish-red…What do y’all think??

I thought this was such a cute gift accessory idea!! I hate buying those huge packages of bows for my gifting recipients to rip off and throw away… They could throw away this twig instead! Plus… I have some cute little pompoms left over from the Oh So Cute Ugly Sweater I just made last weekend.

Lastly on my Inspo List today are these cute little HANDMADE Christmas trees!! I love these things so much 🙂 and I love them in all sizes! Coney Christmas trees have been my desire for years… but they can be so Darn Expensive to buy premade from the store. This looks like a doable solution to my “lack of” a NON-budget-pocket-book-problem. Basically I’m saying this girl has the Champagne taste Beer pocket book Problem! hehe…

Until Tomorrow… Let’s Get Crafty!

#smallbusinesssaturday

Hey guys, so the next coming weeks mark a lot of “shopping holidays” like… Cyber Monday … Black Friday (cray cray). Small Business Saturday was first observed Nov. 27, 2010 as the counterpart to the above mentioned shopping frenzy days. Small Business Saturday is quite the contrast, it’s an encouragement for Holiday Shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local. And Guess What?? You’ve lucked out, because here at Myra’s we are definitely brick and mortar and small and local…

“We have been built from the ground up. We started with nothing… And we have most of it left!”

ShopThruTheYears

Myra Mayo had a small start in early 1996. Out of her love for gardening and a desire to serve her community, she started selling hanging baskets at a local market and out of her front yard. Myra opened the store front where we are now located in 1998. With the help of other garden loving employees, Myra’s Garden has grown to become a service oriented, educational facility.

To Honor Myra’s commitment to the community and our desire to serve we will be offering special discounts on select items during #smallbizsaturday …Tune in tomorrow for a sneak peek at some of the items that will be on discount and this week’s Handy Holiday Tips!

We’ve got chicken, eggs, beef, pork, veggies and herbs all represented here 🙂 We are hoping to expand into a few other streams of homesteading… what would you like to see at Myra’s? What kinda product would you be interested in purchasing during your visits with us?

Until Tomorrow… We look forward to hearing from you!

#socialmedia class

Hey guys! How’s your Monday going? Today was a #MotivationalMonday for us here at Myra’s…

FullSizeRender

We had the privilege of being a part of a social media class lectured by Janet Cohen, a freelance writer and collaborator with Constant Contact. Like her page on Facebook or check out her Website, she has loads of really useful information! Janet shared so much great information with us, I can’t believe I almost DID NOT attend the class… (Ahhhhhh!) What a missed opportunity that would’ve been! I totally recommend being a part of any social media opportunity, we learned so much about marketing and the different directions that social media is taking.

I believe being “online” and “connected through social media” is very important in today’s marketplace. This week Myra’s is Starting each day to achieve Greatness in our business. Like the quote states above “we don’t have to be great to start, but we have to start to be great.” In order to achieve world class greatness (our goal) we believe in starting each day and diligently, faithfully, & obediently trusting that God will lead us.

Be on the look out for different outlets to connect with us on….. look out YouTube here we come!! Oh, and Don’t forget about our Festive Florals class on December 4th!

Until Tomorrow…

-XOXO,

Myra’s

It makes everything feel so much better!

During a Time Full of Life…

Processed with VSCOcam with f1 preset

Hey you guys, good evening! I’ve missed y’all so stinkin much! Last week was cah-raze-eeeee!! We started out the week by spreading 2 loads of gravel to resurface the driveway. Then we rolled it and made it all nice & pretty & packed after the rain. When the rain let up we hung party lights, lantern lights, Christmas lights, chandelier lights… you name it we lit it up! Gotta have plenty of light shining for a beautiful par-tay! hehe.

The inside of the barn (reception hall) was looking a little drab, so we had Sarah Zernicek (from Monarch Events) come over and put her special touch on a few things. She transformed the reception & ceremony areas by gracefully hanging decorations and lighting to create the ambiance we were searching for. The Monarch Events team helped us with so many intricate details we would’ve been lost without them! Same would be said without all the Family & Friends who lended a hand, we are forever grateful for your kindhearted eagerness to help! Continue reading

A Honey Review

Sorry about the late post guys, these weather changes keep hitting me hard. Seems like cool fronts & wonderful rain bring so much cozy joy, but also these uncomfortably dizzying headaches.

We’ve gone full force with prepping, planning, and cleaning for this weekend’s wedding events. Does anyone else have a hard time cleaning with a headache? Do you feel my pain?? So I sat down this evening with my little home brew: 1 Tablespoon of Honey in a cup of piping hot water.

image

Not too long after… I actually started to feel better. The pressure slowly began to release from my head, and continued to the point at which my headache went away completely! I’m so thankful for the little ways that God provides for us.

I’m currently loving my little home remedy… See you tomorrow friends!

-XOXO,

Myra’s
