deer santa…

Congratulations, Laurie from BC!!!!

I’m on a crazy GIVEAWAY roll! This time it’s the coveted Nicole Jane Home Polished Aluminum Stag…that’s right…you heard me…a Stag!  Whoot! Whoot!

polar surprise…

Congratulations to our winner! You should have an email in your inbox đŸ™‚

Time for another GIVEAWAY!!!! It’s the adorable trio of sisal polar bear ornaments by ROOST. I spotted them at the NYC gift show in August and fell madly in love with their sweet little faces!!! I really like that they’re lightweight, so they won’t snap a branch off on the tree (they’re made out of styrofoam and sisal with a jute string).

If you’re already a newsletter subscriber, you’re already automatically entered in the draw.

You can earn an EXTRA ENTRY if you Twitter about this contest–just make sure to add @nicolejanehome (so I know you twittered) and a link to this post (so your tweeps can find out the details).

"Can I help you?"…

If I had a bricks-and-mortar store, I’d have a big smile (I’d serve wine and chocolate, and I’d play Christmas music all the time) and welcome you with, “Can I help you with anything?” I hope my customers get a sense of that when they shop online at Nicole Jane Home, ’cause it’s how I truly feel.

I just sent this newsletter to Nicole Jane Home‘s newsletter subscribers.I REALLY appreciate them, so I run regular specials and contests just for them! If you would like to be included on the list, let me know.

purse heaven…

I dropped by the Circle Craft Fair last week in Vancouver and fell madly, madly in love with these hand bags. They’re made in Canada with upholstery fabric and the detailing is fantastic! I didn’t see one purse that I didn’t like.

What do you think? I’m mulling the idea of carrying them on the website. My photo doesn’t do justice to the gorgeous textures and colors. They retail for around $260, which isn’t bad, considering the price of purses out there. But let me know what you think.

deer oh deer…

Congratulations, Maureen Coates! You won the dear deer!!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here and I’m in the mood to celebrate! What’s more fun than giving away stuff?

I’m giving away a little herd (3) of these adorable cast-iron deer. The lucky winner will get 1 stag and 2 does–just in time for the holidays. They make a great centerpiece on a holiday table with fresh greens and votive candles.

2 chances to win:

1. Leave a comment on this post (one comment per person will be counted in the draw)

2. Mention this giveaway on Twitter (make sure to use @nicolejanehome so I can see that you twittered)

I’ll make a random draw for a winner on November 24. Open to people 18 years or older and living in Canada or the USA.

news flash…

Yesterday was a very good day for Nicole Jane Home. A few fabulous bloggers mentioned my vintage skate ornaments post, and it gave a big boost to traffic on our site. So here’s a great big Thank You to my blogger friends: The Daily Basics, Jenny On The Spot and At Home With Kim Vallee. Gotta love blogging & twittering!!!

The Daily Basics

gone christmas crazy, back in january…

Is it wrong that I’m so excited about Christmas? I mean, really, it’s only November 10 and I’m already playing Christmas music (I have to sneak it, like candy, in my office when nobody else is around). I LOVE going for drives in the evening with the family and seeing who can spot the early-birds, bless their souls, the folks who already have lights up and wreaths on their doors (saw one last weekend)!

While people are groaning about Christmas shopping, I’m happily clicking my way around the internet hunting for the perfect gifts. No more fighting with little old ladies for parking spots. All I have to worry about is one of my kids stealing my computer recharger cord (and the portable phone, which really drives me crazy)!

Out of respect to my friends south of the border, who haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet, I won’t wish you an early Merry Christmas! Nor will I wish you a Happy Hanukkah yet.  And you won’t hear me saying, Felice Navidad either. But hold on to your wigs the minute the clock turns 12:01 a.m. on November 26…’cause I’m going to cut loose with some major glad tidings!!!!!

So here’s a little of my inspiration for you to enjoy. I think it’s my favorite photo from our photo shoot with Janis Nicolay.
