The Most Beautiful Time of the Year in Central Texas

Happy Spring! Spring has graced us here in Central Texas and the bluebonnets are just spectacular with all of the rain that we have been getting.

According to historian Jack Maguire, "The Bluebonnet is to Texas what the Shamrock is to Ireland". We can certainly attest to this. Most of the countryside is covered in bluebonnets, or other wild flowers. Texans owe a special thank you to Lady Bird Johnson for her diligence and efforts in spreading wild flower seeds across the state.

Please take a look at these wonderful photos taken by the "Texas National Press" to see what we mean:
We'll be back in touch shortly with some of the wonderful inventory that has been arriving at Beacon's Glow Collectibles.

Marie Osmond's Baby Mein Liebling Mother's Eyelet Has Arrived

We were excited to receive Marie Osmond's Baby Mein Liebling Mother's Eyelet late on Thursday, 3-8-07. She is quite a beautiful doll, and is from a very limited edition of only 200 dolls. This old-fashioned looking baby doll is dressed in an heirloom ivory dress with pale blue accents. A garland of matching flowers adorns her beautiful warm auburn hair.

Marie Osmond has introduced so many beautiful dolls this year, and we are receiving them in weekly. A very special customer has requested Daisyetta, who was the 2007 Toy Fair Exclusive. We are excited about receiving her in.

Beacon's Glow Collectibles will also be participating in Marie's 2007 Mother...Daughter...Sister...Friends Promotion. Please stay tuned for more details.
