We couldn’t do it Without Them – Frank and Jonell Kovaleski (Erren’s Parents)

  • Jonell - First class floral designer providing our arrangements and store set up. She does all the custom vinyl and is usually the first smiling face you see when you come in the store.

What about the 3 Rusty Nails?


The significance of the 3 Rusty Nails is very simple:  love, grace and hope are our guiding principles.  

Love is more than the lyrics to a song. Just like you, we strive everyday to show patience and kindness to everyone we meet.

Grace is the ability to look past the faults of others and recognize that we have our own shortcomings.  

Hope means that tomorrow is going to be better than today, even though today was great.  

Together,  they describe the attributes of the greatest person ever to walk the earth.
