Winter Wonderland

Yes, it’s common to have snow in December in many parts of America, but not here in Georgia. It was something special to wake up to a winter wonderland this morning. Enjoy it! The sun will come out and it will most likely all be gone by this afternoon!

Take advantage of it and get out there and build a snowman! And, since we’re talking about snowmen, let’s take a look at a few of them we have at Junk Mama’s General Store.

Come pick up one of our many snowman ornaments and it will remind you of this December snow every year when you place it on your tree.

Snow days are perfect for baking cookies! Why not keep them in a cute snowman cookie jar?

We have a large variety of snowman dishes! This set also has plates & glasses…

Don’t forget something to serve the hot cocoa in…

This pillow will be cute on your couch all winter long!

And, who doesn’t love a snow globe?

The sun will come out, the snow will melt, but you can have winter in your heart and in your house with a quick trip to Junk Mama’s!

Cookies For Santa

Santa will be here before you know it. Make sure you’re on the nice list by leaving out some cookies for the jolly soul! St. Nick will be even more thrilled if you serve his cookies on something pretty like these plates at Junk Mama’s General Store…

And, better yet, why not just leave the whole cookie jar out for the big guy?!!!

While we’re on the subject, what kind of cookies will you be making for Santa?
