Another Week Away Giveaway!


9/23: Congratulations to our randomly selected winner, Cheryl Pullen Navalinsky!

In light of all the loving support we’ve received in the Martha Stewart Living American Made competition, and the deadline for the first round of voting being extended another week (and two days, to be precise,) we’ve decided to hold our very own giveaway!

Each time you vote for a nominee in the competition, you enter to win prizes from MSL, like an American Express gift card. Now, every day you vote, you can enter to win prizes from us, too!

Vote now through 9/22/13. One lucky winner will be randomly selected on 9/23/13 to win this fantastic prize package of unique, American made gifts, a value of over $60.00!:


1 $25 Etsy Gift Card; 1 Luchador Mask Pillow by Studio Longoria; 1 Bamboo Calendula Bar Soap by Clover Hollow Soaps & Sundries; 1 Blue Rhinestone Bracelet by Leslie Anne Levine; 15% OFF Your Next Purchase at Buy Me Love or JuJu Eyeball on Etsy; 1 Surprise Gift From Our Store, Buy Me Love!

Two Ways To Enter:

1. This step is mandatory. Simply vote for us, using any number of your 6 daily votes here:

Martha Stewart - American Made 2013 - Nominee Badge

Then, comment that you voted below, and include the total number of votes after you voted UPDATE: No need to keep track of the total number of times you’ve voted, personally! Just include the total number on the screen after you’ve voted for the day. For example, if the number is 2,222 before you vote, and you vote for us 6 times, the total you’ll include in your comment will be 2,228. Easy peasy. Sorry for the confusion! Please leave only one “I voted!” comment per voter per day, not one comment per vote. For example, if you use all 6 of your votes on our profile (wink, wink,) there’s no need to comment 6 times – just comment once.

2. For extra chances to win, you can Pin this giveaway on Pinterest , and leave a comment below up to once a day that you pinned, including the pin URL. (After you pin, click the “see it now” button to copy and paste the pin’s URL into your comment below.) This entry method is completely optional.

IMPORTANT NOTES: If you leave more than one “I voted!” comment, or “I pinned it!” comment per day, only one of each of those comments will count toward your chances of winning. You do not need to have a WordPress.com account to enter. This contest is in no way affiliated with Martha Stewart Living/MSL American Made, or Etsy. Contest valid only in the Continental U.S.

How To Know If You Won: 

The randomly selected winner of the prize package will be announced in this post on 9/23/13, and we will also contact the winner via the email address listed on their account. If you do not have a valid email address listed on the account you use to log in/comment, you must leave your email address in your comment(s.) (The $25 Etsy gift card will also be emailed to the winner.) If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, we will choose another winner for the prize package.

Thank you for supporting our small, handmade, and American made business, and good luck to all our voters!

Share the Love,

Friday’s Favorites – Summer Lovin’

So, I don’t know about you, but we haven’t had much of a spring here in North Texas. We’ve had one big storm (which brought devastating tornadoes to towns around us – you can donate to the disaster relief through Red Cross here,) and a few days in the 70’s, but mostly we’ve gotten sunshine and highs in the upper 80’s and low 90’s. That’s the beginning of summer, if you ask me.

In celebration of our early summer, this Friday’s Favorites list is full of sunbeams and bohemian loveliness.

This beautiful leg chain is a natural evolution of this year’s body chain trend!

Sparkling Honeysuckle Soap

This sparkling honeysuckle scented soap by our friend Cassie at Clover Hollow is subtly glittery, and made from the finest ingredients.

Favorites & Freebies Friday

The next new addition to our blog schedule is Favorites & Freebies. I’ll share some of our favorite etsy items and sellers, plus any freebies (or next-to-freebies) I’ve found!

One of our favorite sellers is soapopotamus. I mean, I’ve seen some beautiful soaps on etsy, but her shop just sparks my imagination! Where else can you find roast chicken soap? It may also have something to do with her hair – isn’t it pretty?

This is one of my favorite listings of all time. Not only do I love the dress (and “mustard” isn’t my favorite color, either), but I love the model!

Now, for the freebies.

I love these PIF (Pay It Forward) matchbook sized mini notebooks! All you pay is the listing fee (.20) plus shipping on PIF listings, so it’s nearly free.

Also, don’t miss Mandy’s Yellow Corner’s Neeka Knits Giveaway! Enter to win a pretty knitted headband in your choice of color for fall.

Hope you all have a happy Friday!

Weird Wednesday

Eyeballs. They’re weird, anatomical, and I’ve always been fascinated with them. Maybe it’s my terrible eyesight. The different color combinations within an iris. Windows to the soul? I don’t know, but today’s Weird Wednesday is all about them.
