Have you ever wondered how Trollbeads are made?

The highlight of the Atlanta Gift Show was watching a demonstration by Trollbeads showing how their Italian  glass beads are made.

Bead demo with Sara

I watched for over an hour as Sara, a very talented glass artist from Trollbeads created the most beautiful Italian glass beads I have ever seen! It was fascinating. When Lise Aagaard, the owner of Trollbeads, offered to send a glass artist to our next trunkshow I jumped at the chance!

How Trollbeads are made

So join us on the first day of our 3 day Trollbeads Trunkshow, Friday, October 7th from noon-6pm to see a fascinating demonstration on how Italian glass beads are made.

We will have drawings throughout the day, and several lucky winners will win a bead made that day in the shop!

The trunkshow continues on Saturday and Sunday, the 8th & 9th

See you then!

Lise Aagaard & I

Our new website is up!

Olivia's new website banner     We are so excited!  After two months of plotting and planning, editing & tweaking, our new website oliviasonline.com is up.  We think it looks great! There is always so much to do around the shop, there literally is not time to do everything.  Projects get forgotten, important events get postponed. But with the help of Matt Payne at socialbridgemedia.com and his talented team, we got the website completed in record time and the end result is exactly what we envisioned!

     Please check out the new site and tell us what you think.   www.oliviasonline.com

Smooth as a Duck’s Butt!

Every once in a while you come
across a product that is
practically perfect in every way!
That is what we found in these new body scrubs
from FarmHouse Fresh!
A yummy sea salt body scrub in
 Whipped Honey or Sweet Cream!
My daughter-in-law and I tried
 these scrubs out this winter
and have been anxiously awaiting
 their arrival this Spring.
Believe me, they are worth the wait!
