Santa's Helper - Elf on the Shelf

Most of you know this guy...

Last year we had so many customers ask us if we carried the Elf on the Shelf. This year we gave in to your requests and we now have the elves in stock!

For those of you who aren't familiar with this trend though, The Elf on the Shelf is a great tradition to start with your kids. The 8-inch elf doll (above) comes with a 28-page hardcover illustrated book that explains the story that is based on a tradition the book's author, Carol Aebersold, began with her family in the 1970s.

Once the elf gets home, the children can name their elf and then the elf gets to work. Elf on the Shelf shows up each morning (many times in a different place!) and spends the day watching and listening…gathering information to carry back to Santa at the North Pole each night. Children love the daily hide-and-seek game of finding where in the house the elf decides to spend the day. Children want to be on their very best behavior when the elf is in the house because it’s their job to help Santa determine who has been naughty and who has been nice!

There are rules of course. The children are not, under any circumstance, allowed to touch or move the elf. And even though the elf can’t talk to the children, they are allowed to talk to the elf…to tell the elf their secrets, Christmas wishes and maybe even some confessions!

I think this is such a fun tradition to start with young children…older children too...or husbands? Hmmm…maybe Seth would be extra nice (do the laundry, the dusting, the dishes, etc.) if I brought an elf on the shelf home with me! LOL!

Santa only sent us a limited supply of elves so be sure to come in and get yours while they last! They're already selling great.

Your elf is waiting for you!

And for those big Elf on the Shelf fans...we have Elf bows, barrettes and headbands! These will be perfect to go with those cute Christmas outfits!

Girls just wanna have fun!

We have plenty of great new stuff for the girly girls just in time for Christmas shopping!

and birthdays too...

and not just the "same old same old" gift ideas...
and because 'going green' is the thing right now...

I absolutely love these knee socks!
and check out this detail...haha!

Of course, this is only the tip of the ice burg so come in and check out all of the new arrivals.

Rain rain

I don't complain about the rain as it's pretty much the only time that my plants get watered and my car gets washed!

It isn't the most convenient thing on days like today when I had on a white button up shirt, dress pants, flats and no umbrella....but I didn't melt so it's all good!

A rainy day couldn't be more fun, though, when you spend the afternoon with a good friend and you are both wearing jeans and colorful rainboots...and you do your best NOT to avoid the time I spent with my friend Shellie at the fair last week!
So in honor of this rainy day and the fun that can be had when properly attired for the weather...
Check out the new raincoats, umbrellas and rainboots that we just got in!

I just love these new stuffed animals that are certified asthma and allergy friendly! That means something to me, Miss Allergy & Asthma! Do you know how excited my parents would have been to have found toys like these when I was little?
They've been tested for durability - meaning, not only will they hold up to being "loved" by children (i.e. dragged, dropped, thrown, sat on, chewed on, tugged, etc.) but the company also promises that they remain looking and feeling like new wash after wash. In addition, the quality and workmanship of the toys allow for the effective allergen reduction processes of freezing and drying too. They are safe for all ages and meet all "stuffed toy safety standards".
AND they're super cute!

They're perfect for any little one on your gift-giving list.

Did you know?

*Each school day, 46 children are diagnosed with cancer.

*On the average 12,500 children and teens will be diagnosed with some form of cancer each year in this country.

*One in 330 children will develop cancer by age 20.

*Although the 5 year survival rate is steadily increasing, one quarter of children will die 5 years from the time of diagnosis.

*Cancer remains the #1 disease killer of America's children - more than Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Asthma and AIDS combined.

*In the U.S. almost 3,000 children do not survive cancer each year.

*Over the past two decades, only ONE new cancer drug has been approved for pediatric use.

*Currently there are between 30-40,000 children undergoing cancer treatment in the U.S.

*As a nation, we spend over $14 BILLION per year on the space program, but only $35 MILLION on Childhood Cancer Research each year.

*There are 15 children diagnosed with cancer for every one child diagnosed with pediatric AIDS. Yet, the U.S. invests approximately $595,000 for research per victim of pediatric AIDS and only $20,000 for each victim of childhood cancer.

*Research funds are scarce as most money is diverted to well-publicized adult forms of cancer, such as breast and prostate.

*Right now, this second, somewhere in America, there are 7 children fighting for their lives who won't live through the day.

Cancer Sucks.

At Ashley's Attic we wear gold for Morgan, Jackson, Andy, Kennedy, Lauren, Riley, Hunter

and for Presley...

for all the children (and their families) who have been affected by cancer.

Who do YOU wear gold for?

Spread the word. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month...but the awareness and education should be there year 'round.

Handpainted monograms, peace sign & football pendants

Check out this new jewelry that I LOVE! Apparently everyone else does too because we've only had them for a few days and we've ran out of some letters...time for a reorder!
These peace sign charms are a little smaller than the monogram tile pendants...and so bright and fun!

And just in time for football, red, blue and the classic brown footballs! These look great with spacer beads in coordinating team colors.

Speaking of football... Everyone needs to come out to Nunley Stadium tonight for the WCHS Homecoming! Tailgating starts at 5pm and the game starts at 7pm. Come help cheer on our Pioneers as they face the Coffee County Red Raiders in the third game of the season!
