2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Candle Warmers, Etc. Aurora Candle Lamp Review & Giveaway

This post written by Roxanne from Children Teaching Mama. Before having children I had candles everywhere and would light them daily. Now that I have two rambunctious boys running around, I don’t light them as often because I’m afraid they will get burned or knock it over. I worry about their safety, which is why I was so excited to receive the Aurora Candle Lamp from Candle Warmers.   About Candle Warmers Founded in 2001, the idea was conceived that a different method should be used for releasing fragrance from a candle and Candle Warmers, Etc. was born. Candle Warmers, … …..

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Ornaments With Love

I love personalized things – especially those that represent our entire family.  Ever since Dustin and I got married we have been getting personalized Christmas ornaments for our tree and I love looking at them because they show how our family has continued to grow.  We have a little kiosk that sells them in our local shopping mall, but their choices are limited so I soon grew bored of their selection.  Want to know a website where you will never grow bored of their selection of personalized Christmas ornaments?  Ornaments With Love!

Beyond Bedding Review & Giveaway

In my opinion when decorating a nursery it’s the small accents that truly pull everything together.  And with my squirrel/acorn theme made up of browns/tans/pinks I was having a rather difficult time finding accent pieces to finish up Willow’s room.  And then I remembered Beyond Bedding where I had gotten a beautiful toddler bedding set for the girls bedroom upstairs and thought I would check them out. And wouldn’t ya know they have just about every room accent piece you could think of including hampers, lampshades, decorative pillows, wall décor, crib mobiles, changing pad covers, and floor rugs – which … …..

Urban Walls–Wall Art Decals Giveaway

One of the easiest ways to spice up the walls in your home is with wall art decals.  In fact we have some on the walls in our kitchen, bathroom, and the girls bedroom.  I think what I love the most about wall decals is that if you change your mind about how you want the room decorated they can be easily removed without destroying the walls which makes them perfect for apartment living or those renting homes…… and for those of us who just like to change things up too often for them to be permanent, hehe.  Since I … …..

Gift Guide: Mohawk Home Area Rug Review & Giveaway

When we first moved into our home Dustin and I decided to put carpeting through out since we would soon have a little one crawling about.  However, we made the very bad choice of a light colored carpet and after having numerous cats and two babies the carpet was literally ruined.  I knew there were hard wood floors underneath the destroyed carpet and asked Dustin if we could refinish the living room floor.  He said yes and by the time he was home from work that evening the carpet was out of the house and I had pulled all the … …..

New Bedroom Decor Plans…

About a month or so ago I wrote about the transformation we did on the upstairs of our bungalow to turn it into an amazing room for Dilly and Sugar to share.  It went from a very dark cave like room to light gray walls with pink and orange accents everywhere.  It looks awesome, but Dustin and I moved into Dilly’s old bedroom which just so happens to be painted pink… not very manly.  This is what it looked like before we switched rooms…. And now it still looks like that except with our furniture.  The light pink is not … …..

Kitchen Decor Prize Pack Sponsor Spotlight: Stitchery Giftery A few days I wrote about the amazing chalkboard frame that is hanging in my kitchen and the rustic handle on it that doubles as a handy towel bar.  Well of course I needed a primitive inspired towel to match my kitchen decor for this handle and that is what led me to Stitchery Giftery on Etsy.

Made With Love: Timeless Journey Spotlight

Kitchen Decor Prize Pack Sponsor Spotlight: Timeless Journey Where Your Memories Stand Still When we first moved into our home the kitchen was awful… seriously awful.  I ripped all the cabinets out and when I say “I” I mean it, haha.  Literally while Dustin and his mom were working on the floor in one of the bedrooms I ripped all the cabinets out of the kitchen and Dilly helped considering I was a few months pregnant, hehe.  After we applied a fresh coat of paint, installed new tile, cabinets, and counter tops it was time to decorate!  I am a … …..
