Open House and Playhouse

Thank you to all of our friends who came to our holiday open house last night - it was such a success! We are glad so many of you could take a little of The Willows home with you! We had so much fun decorating the store for our open house, and we're so happy it was well received. It's amazing, isn't it, what a small thing like an ornament or a holly candle can do to lift the spirit. There is something about twinkling lights on a tree, the background Christmas music, and lots of greens, reds and whites that just put smiles on our faces.

For those of you with little ones, Raph infant & child at 4747 E Thomas Suites A&B Phoenix 85008 is having their holiday open house this Saturday the 15th from 10am-9pm. Happyjack Photography will be there as well - set up your Christmas photos early this year so you're not running around Mid-december looking for matching outfits for the kids to wear when everything is sold out! Call Raph at 602-956-3077 for more details!

Last Saturday, we felt the spirit of giving when we joined other volunteers and sponsors for an amazing project for The Foundation for Blind Children. Read on to see what we accomplished.
What can you do with 200 friends?
Build a village...
This past Saturday The Willows joined several other groups and organizations who volunteered their time and money to build playhouses for the Foundation for Blind Children.
Here is our house!

Starting out the day.
We had so much fun choosing colors, fabrics, and even musical instruments that were most appealing to the children! Did you know that children who are classified as blind can tell the distinction between black, white, yellow and red the best? Did they say black and white? How fitting for The Willows!
The Willows worked diligently until it was so dark we couldn't see - hours after everyone else had already left. Bev even came back and worked Sunday to make sure all the details were in place.

What do you think of the details?

Happy Holidays!
