Be sure to post a comment below to be entered into our February grooming bow sampler pack drawing.
Every four years, we add a day to our usual year to keep our calendar aligned with the earth's orbit around the sun. Since that orbit takes 365.25 days, eventually that extra quarter day would make February a summer month here in the northern hemisphere. That wouldn't be so bad, actually, for those of us in the frigid north!
Leap day used to be called "Ladies Day", a day when women were free to propose to men. That title was replaced with "Sadie Hawkins Day", although our high school Sadie Hawkins dance (where the girls invited the boys to be their dance date) occured in November, which is traditional.
Are you a Leapling (someone born on leap day)? My third-grade teacher was a Leapling. While she appeared to be about the same age as my Mom, her actual age -- based on leap year math -- was only 10 years! As a child I found this hilarious, of course.
One more bit of Leap Year trivia: In the year 64, Rome burned. And in the year 1912, the Titanic sank.
You won't be sunk with our February grooming accessories! We're currently working on St. Patrick's Day and Easter bows, and have in stock lots of new spring floral prints for our fabric bows. Hop on over to our shop to see lots of photos of all the bow styles currently available. Happy February!
Happy New Year - and happy new DECADE!
You may have noticed our new logo -- Jenn's Bowtique is undergoing a transformation. We're changing our name to "Sit Up and Beg Bowtique", because, frankly, there are just SO many other "Jenn's Bowtiques" out there. The name is changing, but we're still the same business you rely on for quality and variety in pet grooming bows and accessories.
During the month of January, we're busy creating bows for Valentine's Day (my favorite holiday, because it just happens to be the day before my birthday). You'll find special korker bows and classic pinwheel bows just for Valentine's day, for a limited time.
I've added some new products to our lineup too, including "shabby-chic" fabric flowers and "loopy" flower bows. We'd love to know what you think in the comments section.
Welcome to my December blog post - thanks so much for stopping by.
It seems 2019 has flown by, and we are winding down after the mad rush to complete holiday orders. Getting packages to the post office has been "interesting" -- we already have nearly two feet of snow on the ground here in the Wisconsin North Woods! Hot chocolate and staying warm by the fireplace is definitely the plan.
This month I'm already working on bows for Valentine's Day, including some new fascinator-style pinwheels and fun korker bows. They'll be available on my website beginning January 2nd.
I hope you're all looking forward to a fun, relaxing and safe holiday season, wherever you may be. Happy Holidays!
