Load up on Sterling Silver Ornaments at Beverly Bremer
Since sitting down for a photo session with Santa and Mrs. Claus will get you in the holiday spirit, also consider purchasing silver ornaments to “spruce” up your tree or to give as gifts. The Beverly Bremer’s 2012 collection includes crosses, a Christmas tree, a snowflake, baby’s first cup and a bell. The store also keeps ornaments from year’s past, but call soon to find out if they have your favorites as supplies are limited.

Listen to Live Music at Ray’s on the River
You can now give your ears and taste buds a treat when you dine at Ray’s on the River. Musician Jennifer Hanson will perform at the Sandy Springs joint Wednesday through Saturday evenings from now until December.
Canadian Hanson became a critically acclaimed vocal sensation and performer in her Winnipeg community. The Winnipeg Sun newspaper described her music as “bluesy boho-jazz balladry” and compared her to Tom Waits and Rickie Lee Jones.
