Today, we’d like you to meet Susan Spencer, one of our co-owners ~ When asked what her favorite holiday memories were, Susan had this to say:

“Several years ago, my girls Heather and Amy were both away at college, and I was decorating one night for Christmas on my own. My golden retriever, Bo, was with me that evening. I was feeling really down, and was missing my girls so much. I was attempting to haul all the boxes upstairs to begin decorating, and I was crying and feeling melancholy. I was hauling the last box up the stairs (and was carrying too much, if we are being honest) when I dropped one single ornament. This pushed me over the edge and I began crying even more. I put the final box down and turned around to head back down the stairs to get the last ornament. When I turned, there sat my Bo, with the ornament in his mouth. I was so touched by his action that I took the rest of the night to spend time with him, and reminisce. I think that was the moment that I realized my perspective on ‘The Perfect Christmas’ had changed. I cherished that night, and I never stressed about decorating after that.”

Shh! Don’t let the kids see this!
Children in Dutch countries celebrate their version of Christmas much earlier on December 6th. Traditionally kids leave their shoes out on the eve of December 5th for Sinterklaas to fill with candy, chocolate coins, and fruit! Spencer’s has all you need to fill shoes (or stockings) with special treats and fruit basket season is just around the corner!

Birding is a spectacular way to spend time outdoors, attract birds to your yard, and enjoy their beauty. In the colder months, birds rely on feeders for additional protein, when food is harder to find. Gifting a brightly colored feeder and a bag of premium seed is a fantastic way to continue the outdoor experience into the Winter months. Hang one near a window for easy enjoyment!
