Nothing but the best for your kids! These super cute cowels are hand sewn in Italy by Mondo Rotondo.
Cosy, warm and chic, these teddy bear cowels are perfect for any little one on your Christmas list. Make sure you tell them about the whole hand sewn in Italy thing because that makes it just a little bit cooler. Miss Kate is going to wear her teddy bear hat with pride because, as you know, she is fierce.
Mara, the super seamstress, is a work at home mom who taught herself to sew so she could make gorgeous things like this for her daughter. I'm of the opinion she should get ready because these little bear cowels are sure to be a hit.
The Glossy Queen
Every so often something crosses my desk that I have full intentions of giving away, (as is the plan with these features) and then I see it in person and I just don't wanna! The Glossy Queen's thread bangles are on that list.
I started these features after a number of people began sending me items with the hopes that I would promote them. I figured, hey, why not? Let's send some gifts out to some deserving moms and feature some products that we love.
And now, I am staring down at these bangles thinking: must I always be so selfless? Am I not a tired mom, too? But, alas, I would not sleep if I did not deliver these gorgeous handmade thread bangles to one of you. So, if you'd like to be entered to win please 'like' this post on Facebook or comment below. This contest closes in twenty-four hours. Good Luck! (Note: You are not allowed to offer them back to me as I was being dramatic, as usual)
Clay Me A Dream
I'm a huge fan of personalizing your décor. The big box store factory made prints and patterns make me sad. I think it is especially important to make sure your children's rooms reflect who they are and what they like. Clay Me a Dream is a talented artist who creates unique designs that can be personalized for your child's room. The monkey's are my favorite. Who doesn't have a little monkey running around their house? I wonder if she can do Ninja Turtles? How sweet would that be? Maybe even a girl ninja turtle! Has no one thought of this yet??
As much as I hate to do it, I will part with these playful monkeys to one of you. I have a ninja turtle and a princess in my house. Do you have a monkey or two? 'Like' this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered. This contest closes in twenty-hours. Good Luck!
Okay, I'm kind of a dog person now. I didn't know it could be like this. I'm used to the indifference of my cat and I liked it that way. Now, that I've had a taste of the "I love you more than myself" dog world, I'm hooked. Don't get me wrong, I still adore Mr. Bill Bailey, but this dog kills me.
Seagate8Studio hooked us up with a pillow of our service dog Oakley's likeness and we love it! Are you a lab person? Which pillow suits you?
Of course, you don't have to be a dog lover. This shop makes some gorgeous decor for those that like classic, New England style.
I'd love to offer this pillow as a giveaway but guess who has already claimed it? That's right. Our girl Kate spied it on the counter and has been cuddling her 'Oak-Wee' pillow ever since. So, forgive me for holding on to this one, but have you seen her in full Ninja mode?
Are you a foodie? Do you know a foodie? Of course you do! TwoTumbleweeds has the perfect gift for them.
Check out foodie dice. If things are starting to get boring in the kitchen why not spice it up by making a game of it. Are you up for the challenge? Treat yourself to a set. I'm partial to the mixology set myself. I feel I have more skills in that area.
These two genius sisters are probably pretty busy getting their foodie dice out to everyone who is scrambling to get a set in time for Christmas. Lucky for you, I have a set to give away.

This time of year I search far and wide for inexpensive and unique gifts for the many people on our Christmas list. PLANT just helped me cross a lot of people off of that list.
These mini organic spice kits fit the bill to a tee. We all have to eat, right? Why not use these hip little sets to add some flavor to our meals? Use this coupon code to make the price even better at their online shop here:
Thai Spice Kit_PLANT_20%
This little shop isn't only in the spices game. Plant Design Studio does bath and body oils, too, and they didn't tell me they had these! I need the one called CALM DOWN. Don't we all, though? I have quite the collection of body washes and bath oils and I need to add these to it. Maybe, just maybe, they'll end up in my stocking this year.

I know you think you can run out to some big box store and get curtains for your home. And, in some ways, you are right, you sure can; if you're okay with cheaply produced and machine made. However, if you want absolutely gorgeous, high end, handmade forever curtains you better find a talented seamstress like I did at Beautifully Living.
Truth be told, I am actually feeling rather guilty because, although, you all know I refuse to accept money for product features and I give away (almost) everything that I receive (there was that ring I just had to have), Nora made me a set of curtains and they are far more beautiful than I deserve for this feature. And when these curtains arrived I could barely lift the box because the lovely lady added black-out panels to an already divinely heavy fabric. They are the most luxurious thing in my home, by far. How will I ever thank her enough?
The way I will begin to thank her is by telling you that you can order from this Colorado darling without second thought. You can even use this coupon code for 10% off: GOTEAMKATE. You will get your money's worth and more. Following that, I will continue to support her by telling everyone I know how fabulous her work is. I wonder if she makes duvets? Oh, the possibilities!
She'd also like to offer you a chance to win a prize just for being awesome. Simply visit her shop and like this post on Facebook or comment below to let me know.
The WigWood Clockery
You cannot begin to imagine how in love I am with this shop. The genius of taking these beloved blocks, we all played with as children, and turning them into a finely crafted artisan clock is brilliant.
The style and craftsmanship will have these clocks featured in magazines and blogs far bigger than this one, but I'll be able to say: I found them first!
The WigWood Clockery creates these stunning pieces of art and I am of the opinion that every single home needs one. The sweet pastel versions for the little ones and the brightly colored hues for the older children. They'd be gorgeous in a family room or a playroom, too. How sweet would these clocks be inside a classroom?
Listen closely when I tell you that these clocks are worth every penny and more. I have been exploring mine and it is simply perfection. Handmade with every detail so important to the creator that it's almost as if this clock popped right out of a Lewis Carol Novel. And, don't even get me started about the packaging. It was sublime! The packaging is almost as stunning as the clock! You'll keep the packaging forever, as well, because it is the perfect spot for mementos important to you.
If you adore a child or a child at heart, let them have the privilege of owning a clock from The WigWood Clockery.
A mom like you.
