Mill Creek Christmas #1

holyberriesSunday, December 1st & I have to admit, I didn’t shop small yesterday, but I tried to make up for it today at one of my favorite home & gift stores, Belle Provence. Picked up some lovely shea butter liquid hand soap by Michel Design Works in a refreshing, seasonal scent, Snowman. If you haven’t tried this line, you must.

Also as part of their Holiday Afternoons at Belle Provence event they were featuring “My Saint My Hero” Blessing Bracelets which are made with medals of St. Benedict.

“Wear this bracelet on your wrist to remind yourself that God has given you a mission to make the world a better place, and that you can choose to fulfill that mission by using your hands to do good.”

Hmmm, one for me, one for a gift. Do tell.

While I was there, I took note of great ideas for friends, family, host/hostess gifts on my list: the wide selection  from the aforementioned – Michel Design Works,  Brighton, Trollbeads, the truly lucious Lafco Candles, Hobo bags & wallets, Spartina 449 handbags & accessories, the Thymes fragrance collections currently featuring, Frasier Fir.  




MC Town Center Best Lifestyle Center & Open-Air Mall

forumPicwebOur very own, Mill Creek Town Center will be featured in a television segment filmed locally, as the Official Best Lifestyle Center & Open-Air Mall in Washington for 2013.

The feature will be shown on FOX Seattle & on The Discovery Channel nationally in October 2013 & placed on the national travel site  www.OfficialBestOf.com/features/washington/2013.php

Look for the segment on:

Wednesday, October 2 at 5:00 am E/P on The Discovery Channel

Saturday, October 5 at 2:00 pm on KCPQ FOX channel 13 in Seattle

Mill Creek Town Center is an amazing lifestyle center located in the scenic city of Mill Creek, Washington. Nestled among nature trails & creeks, the outdoor mall has a park-like setting. With over 80 retail stores, boutiques, restaurants & services, you’ll always find friendly service & something unique. Open 7 days a week, the Mill Creek Town Center is located 1/2 mile north of SW 164th Street on Bothell-Everett Hwy in Mill Creek WA. Do Tell.

The Official Best Of originated in January 2007 as a travel TV show & website covering only a few states. Today Official Best Of covers 28 states with the remaining states plus other countries being covered in 2013.

One distinction that sets Official Best Of apart from many other travel sites is that it doesn’t accept advertising on either its television programs or its website. The selection of attractions is by merit, and lesser-known but worthy attractions are given the same attention as famous ones. As with each TV show production, the website www.OfficialBestOf.com offers a great resource for those planning a vacation, day trip or outing for residents within Washington as well as folks all across the country.
