Holiday Closure & After-Christmas Sale

It’s Day TWO of this week of While the Cat’s Away Sales & Giveaways! (Can you believe it? This is the 16th Annual Cat’s Away Sale!)

Remember, the shipping staff are on vacation till January 3rd, but for sale prices and/or freebies, I think you’ll be able to wait. Shipping will BEGIN on January 3rd, so you’ll need to be patient if you’re ordering during this sale. More info on the sale and holiday schedule.

On to today’s goodies: TWO Sales and a Giveaway!

ONE: EVERYTHING on Clearance is now on Sale at 50% off!

This is HUGE (over 300 items from all themes) plus new items added daily during the sale!

The extra mark-downs end MONDAY night, January 1st, 2024 or until sold out! I will merge orders (to save shipping) if you order multiple times during the sale.

Highlights from NEW Clearance Items with a Garden Theme!

Over 30 items just added, so just a few highlights shown below. See all the new garden-themed mark-downs on Sale at 50% off.

TWO: ONE-DAY COUPON SALE on ALL Supplies from The Forgotten Garden by Teri Calia

The Forgotten Garden is a beautiful (and a bit strange) miniature creation by Teri. Strange as in mysterious, ghostly, weird and perhaps even a little unearthly. If you were to come upon it on a foggy morning, by yourself, out in the middle of the English countryside it may even unnerve you a bit.

Teri used 3 walls of the stall (but not the roof), perched on a 6x7x2 Platform Base. Clever girl: Teri didn’t use the roof, instead she used 1/4 Inch Square Wooden Dowels laid across the top of the shed walls.

The 6x7x2 Platform Base is sitting on top of another platform (Cottage Base – 9x9x1) with 2-Step Stairs (which were designed for the height of that taller platform).

Yes, that is a skeleton half-buried in overgrown grass you see to the left of the steps! I believe Teri thought of him/her as the long forgotten gardener or caretaker of the garden. (Aside: I love the dandelion that Teri made… growing out of the skeleton.)

As you approach the back of the building you may find yourself thinking, “Hmm… this place looks pretty dead but the roses certainly look like they’re taken care of.” Being a rose lover, you turn on the garden hose (that surprisingly looks quite new) and give the roses a quick drink. There is also a weedy windowbox, with Trellis Panels on either side as fancy shutters.

Inside the shed is a Workshop Table, covered with long-forgotten supplies (potting soil on old newspapers, a trowel and other hand tools, a flower pot on its side, a wooden crate under the table, and seed packets/gloves from a collage sheet Teri designed for this project).

Use coupon GARDEN-SHED when checking out to get an additional 20% off beyond current sale prices on everything in Teri’s Supply List! That includes a double discount on anything on clearance, too!

BONUS: I added 5 extra NEW or back-in-stock items with a garden theme to this sale collection!
Small Green Frogs New! and also included in the Giveaway so check below for a photo

Tiny Resin Bunny Rabbits (How cute! Also new!)
Dark Green Camouflage Foliage (back in stock, as are the next 2 items)
Green Foliage Bushes
Mini Flower Borders – Red (though all the colors are included in the sale)

The sale ends TONIGHT, December 27th at midnight PST.

Highlights from The Forgotten Garden Sale!

Hooray for the Garden Shed Giveaway!

I picked out EIGHT items from Teri’s supplies for today’s Giveaway:
Simple Market Stall (no better place to start than the structure)
Window Box with Gothic Facade (this is a substitute…it is a bit wider than the windows but as I’m including the panels Teri used as shutters, it works just fine)
Trellis Panels – Set of 2 (and see below for the windows, too)
White Sleeping Cat (who can be sleeping in your window box)
AND four more items listed below that art pic showing the window/shutters from the outside!

Bonus: I’m also including one of the new Small Green Frogs (not actually in this project… but could be)!

Don’t forget to use coupon GARDEN-SHED when checking out to get an additional 20% off on EVERYTHING in this collection!
