Party time!

MAYBE we don't have "whos-its" and "whats-its" or "gadgets" and "gizmo's," but man do we have glasses and votives a plenty, we've got candles and bowls galore... You want things-for-your-tables? We've got over twenty!
Yes.... I am quoting The Little Mermaid.
But wasn't that one of the best parts of the movie?? Exploring that cavern full of sparkling goodies Ariel would run off to when things just got tough... ohhh the pressures of a mermaid princess. I bet Princess Kate wishes she has one of those caverns right now, too. How terrible the press is these days, really!
Anyway, Circa is busting at the seams with fun, festive glasses and goblets of every shape, size and color! Come escape the pressures of your life and explore the goodies we have JUST for you.
(The highlighted links will take you to some recipes for your upcoming Holiday parties!)

FUN martini glasses
(try Martha's Eggnog Martini)
$86 for a set of 6

Unfortunately, this photo does not capture the greatness of these ribbed goblets...
$60 for a set of 6
(they are also available in an Old Fashioned and highball version as well!)

Wouldn't you just love sipping a basil martini out of one of these?
$90 for a set of 6

SO fun! I think these would also make a fantastic wedding gift!
(as would any of the other glasses we have in... all of which could serve a delicious White Russian)
$18 each

Great, low goblets.... added bonus: colored glass is SO in!
Perfect for sipping lemonade!
$38 for a set of 4

Collection of bowls, table runners, placemat's, glasses, etc... Currently I am particularly in love with those bowls stacked in the center of the table. Ice cream, cereal or soup would taste so much better out of them, I am sure! Possibly this Williams Sonoma Mexican Lime Soup with Chicken I cooked recently- delicious! 
$18 each

And the collection goes on and on! 

It is officially Fall, which means the Holiday's are JUST around the corner!! Come in to see what new treasures you can acquire for your tabletops today. While you are here, remember that you can still place furniture orders up until October 12th and it will have a guaranteed delivery before Thanksgiving! Impressive, no?

Don't forget your candles!
**HELPFUL TIP: If you are having a get together during the day, be sure that your candles have been burned down a bit. There's nothing worse than a fresh unused candle eye sore! Also, a trick with these gorgeous beeswax candles... the night before your party, throw them in your freezer! The colder they are, the slower they burn! Otherwise, you can run through a pack of these quicker than you can say:
"Jack be nimble!"
**ALSO: The highlighted links above will take you to some recipes for your upcoming Holiday parties!

Take care of yourself!

Hello readers! I am so excited about the Livestrong website, that I wanted to write an entry about it! It is the neatest site I've discovered in a LONG time! This site can answer any question you may have about anything health related..... everything from healthy, delicious recipes to vitamin inquires to "Quit Coaches" (help to finally stop that nasty habit you may have) to cancer support groups.... and much, MUCH more. I highly suggest for you to take a gander and see what you can find.
One of the things that I am most excited about is that it directed me to a downloadable iTunes app for training for a half marathon! I am going to attempt a half-marathon soon and have been researching training schedules. The group who has put this together has created an app for iPhones, iPads, Droid devices and best of all (for me) iPods!!! They compile a play list for you to download to your iPod with songs specifically plucked from the music world to go in sync with the intensity of your workout. I mean, what more could a girl training for her first half marathon ask for?!?!?! If the music doesn't get me through, hopefully the beautiful scenery will, as I am hoping to participate in the Kiawah Island Half Marathon.
Wish me luck!!
And have fun browsing the Livestrong website... it's bound to motivate you to do something- even if it's just to buy a new labradoodle (see why here) and be sure to bring him or her by to meet Sister and Livy!!

Sofa Shopping!

We have just received four new sofas on our floor and MAN are they wonderful!!! Are you in need of a new sofa for your home? Everyone loves to test sofa's out before buying, so why don't you come and check these out this weekend?! You can swing by Laurel Market on your way to grab a delicious wrap or sandwich and make a day of it!!
Here's some eye candy for you:

Lee Industries # 3980-03
This sofa is INCREDIBLY comfortable... and the style is a Circa favorite! It is covered in a soft, plush brushed cotton and men love it because it has a BENCH seat (translation: one cushion on the seat), so feels like a twin bed... when laying down watching football, of course! Another added bonus is the AWESOME leather contrast throw pillows... cool or what?! Cindy and the shop girls sure do know how to mix it up! BUT if you fall in love with the style and the colors do not work with your home- don't fret... we have TONS of fabrics for you to choose from!

Lee Industries # 3421-03
LOVE this style!! High back, beautiful curved arms, and ready to go home with you!! This fabric can work just about anywhere... come in and see for yourself!!

Hickory Chair # 322-88
I mean, is this cool or what? Yes- regular sofa, but being used as a banquette! Great, huh?!? The contrast cord adds a little spice and this one is actually a double whammy for men: bench seat AND a low arm! Men gravitate to lower arms for some reason... I can only assume that they are more comfortable to jump out of and scream at the TV when some silly ref makes a terrible call.

Lee Industries # 1571-03
The fabric and contrast cord on this one is very similar to the Hickory Chair sofa we just saw- but what a knock out combo!! Again- LOW ARM and while it may not be a bench seat DO NOT for one minute think this means uncomfortable. Maybe you should see for yourself!
And remember- if you love any of these styles (or anything else you may find your body falling into while visiting us) and the fabrics just aren't your thing, let us help you create your dream sofa with the hundreds upon thousands of fabrics we have under our roof!
Have a great weekend and even if you aren't on one of our sofas cheering on your team this weekend, we sure do hope they win for you (unless you are cheering against our teams, of course)!!!!!
