Weekend Shopping by Holly

Valentine’s Day. You either love it or you hate it. If you love it-one more day! Hooray! If it is the most dreaded day of the year for you-one more day! Thank the Lord. Either way, I think we all agree on one thing. Bring on the roses and chocolate. And sales? Yes please.

Jan Showers is shaving a 30-50% off sale. That is sweeter than any box of chocolates…

Pottery Barn’s Presidents’ Day Weekend Sale. Nothing says “God Bless America” like savings up to 50% on new Spring additions.

Cantoni welcomes Italian design house One and Only to its mix (PS. Cantoni has the US exclusive on it). One and Only includes pieces for the dining, bedroom and living areas in a selection of finishes and upholsteries. Each piece is finely crafted using your choice of exotic and rich high gloss Canella Noir wood veneer or polished lacquer with stainless steel to create stunning results. Check out the collection here. Now through March 1, you can get the new collection at 20% off at Cantoni’s Fall in Furniture Love Sale.

Special for Valentine’s Day, Home, James! has an assortment of tasty goodies all boxed up and wrap-ready. Pralines, longhorns, lemon shortbread cookies, etc.-all between $5 and $22.The true way to a woman’s heart, if I must say so myself.

So you love roses??? Texas Discovery Gardens and North Haven Gardens do too, and they have events going on this weekend that are timely a timely fit for such an occasion as Valentine’s Day. Saturday from 10-11, Texas Discovery Gardens is having “A Garden Walk for Lovers…of Roses.” Ooh and awe at assortments that most likely put your 1-800-flowers stash to shame. And if you are lucky enough to get a batch of roses on Saturday, North Haven Gardens will teach you all you need to know to keep yours blossoming forever. Well, for as long as possible. “Successful Roses” class at NHG at 1:30 this Saturday.

Last but not least, I was going to prepare a gift guide for all you last-minute shoppers. However, Miss Raya Ramsey has already put one together that is simply unbeatable. Find out where to get these items, along with many others, here.
