It's time for a fun post

We're still answering phone like crazy here and doing our best to ship your orders in time for Christmas. In light of the time-crunch, I thought I'd just share something short and light-hearted with you today.

I love the blog 1000 Awesome Things, and I saw this one post several days ago. I wonder if any of you have any pictures of your model cranes decked out like this.

If you have anything like this in your collection that's decked out for the holidays, feel free to send us pictures at All of us at would love to see them, and if you're lucky you may be featured here on the blog!

There's still time!

I have been throughly enjoying your calls to this week, as I don't usually talk to quite so many of you! Keep them coming and bring us your questions. The most commonly asked question has been, " is there still time to get here for Christmas?" If you are within the continental United States, the answer is yes! And if you're not, please do call us and we will discuss possible arrangements with you. Either way, make sure to get your orders in over the next day or two, at the very least to avoid the need for expedited shipping.

If there are any other questions, please let us know!

For those of you that follow this blog on FaceBook and need an immediate response, please don't hesitate to call or leave us a comment on this Blogger site. I personally get the notifications for this blog, but not from FaceBook, so your response will be more immediate. I will still be checking FaceBook over the next few days, so you will definitely not go unnoticed either way. 

Happy and safe shopping to you all!

Christmas!! Thanksgiving has past, and now you can really tell Christmas is coming!

One of my favorite things is our snowflakes hanging from the ceiling in the living room. :) I finally started my Christmas shopping this week... one gift down! Oh and boy, is it getting cold! All these things put me in the mood to show you guys something Christmasy!
