Are you ready for the next holiday celebration? September 02 2014, 1 Comment

September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Periwinkle will be celebrating in store with pirate snacks, songs and, of course, pirate talk. I'd love for you to visit for our pirate festivities from 6 - 8:00 p.m.

To get your home or office ready for the festivities, perhaps a Pirate banner?

We made this fun skull & crossbones banner using just black and white paper and string! If you're nearby, stop by to use our Accucut to cut three pennant shapes. The scraps from the black sheet of paper are cut into stripes-- no need for perfect straight lines, pirates aren't perfect! The scrap from the white paper becomes the skull & crossbones. Just a little glue stick and you are set.

Periwinkle will be closed this Sunday, August 31 and Monday, September 1 August 30 2014, 0 Comments

We're decorating for Fall! August 24 2014, 1 Comment

Sure, it's still a little warm out, but we're getting ready for a change in the weather, falling leaves, and hot apple cider! There are art glass pumpkins in oranges, browns, and greens, glittery and sparkly owls for the wall and the table top, and lots of burlap trims. We're decking the store for the fall! 

A selection of Halloween is already up on our website here and a little is sneaking out in the store, too. It seems a long way off now, but Halloween parties and costumes are right around the corner!
