1. An Unbreakable Bond

    An Unbreakable Bond

    At some point in our lives, we’ve probably all had a favorite stuffed animal that we would never let go of. You would sleep with it, eat with it, and take it everywhere you went. It brought you a certain sense of comfort and security. It would help keep you safe when things went bump in the night, and keep you entertained for hours on end while you let your imagination run wild. Personally, mine was a stuffed dog that I got when I was three. His given name was Patches, but of course I decided to call him “Softy and Fuzzy.” Softy and Fuzzy was my best pal! I took him to daycare, to the park, on road trips, you name it. I grew up with him. The sentimental value that this little stuffed dog holds is indescribable. I still have Softy and Fuzzy to this day, and he reminds me of so many of the joyous moments of my childhood.

    The "Greeting Card For Your Yard"

    Happy Fall y’all! Today officially welcomes the start of a beautiful new season. As we probably all know, the South doesn’t get to truly experience everything that Fall has to offer. In other areas of the world, the weather will start cooling down, leaves will change to beautiful shades of yellow and orange, and it will soon be time to break out the scarves and coats. We still have a couple of warm months left to look forward to. We really can’t complain though because that means we get to have fun in the sun even longer! With the weather in the upper 80’s and the leaves remaining their vibrant shades of green, it’ll take a little creativity to get in the Fall spirit.

    Every southern home needs a festive flag for their front porch or garden! There’s no better way to kick off the start of a new season than by hanging one of Evergreen’s beautiful flags. Their extensive line of Fall themed flags will have you ready to throw on your flannel and head to the pumpkin patch. That personal touch is what transforms a house into a home.

    The beauty of these flags is that you can change them as often as you’d like! There’s something for every season and holiday. Try a beach theme for summer, a snowman for those chilly winter days, or maybe some pastel Easter eggs for spring! An Evergreen flag is the best way to welcome guests to your home. Hang a full-sized flag by your front door or spruce up your front yard with one of the garden flags or spinners. You can find the perfect “Greeting Card for Your Yard” on our website or at one of our four stores!
