A Little V-Day Sponsor Love

Yes, we’re back for our monthly sponsor shout out to thank them for being so darn lovable and for keeping YHL (and the 2.5 people + 1 chihuahua behind it) up and running. So, if you’re feeling as affectionate as we are, you can catch a glimpse of their eye-pleasing goods below (and even score a few exclusive discounts). Who knows, you might just spot a last minute V-day gift for someone special…

First we have Penny People Designs, who certainly have you covered if you’re looking for sweetly simple personalized prints for your little ones. And don’t miss their heart-filled love print, which definitely transcends the nursery (it would be really sweet in an all white kitchen).

The Tile Shop was the source for a lot of the tools (wet saw, trowel, etc) and supplies (grout, sealer, etc) that we used for our bathroom remodel- and now they’re offering to be yours AND giving you 10% off when you use the code YHL10.

Z Gallerie always serves up plenty of pretty things. And might we suggest checking out the SALE section of their site for up to 70% off or taking advantage of this weekend’s furniture sale? They’re taking 10% off everything (or 15% if you spend more than $500).

Shades of Light has far more than just lamps and shades. In fact, the 100% wool rug and blue capiz chandelier that we scored for our nursery were passed down from here to their local Decorating Outlet where we grabbed them. So they’re definitely worth a browse online or in person.

Design for Less is another great source for the tile of your dreams. They make beautiful glass, metal and natural stone tiles that almost make us wish we had more bathrooms to redo. You know, once we’ve fully recovered from our last one…

Vol. 25 has a whole slew of unique prints and art to make your heart go pitter-patter. Don’t believe us? We just dare you to count the number of designs that make you swoon over there.

Quirk is spreading the love this month by offering up a 14% discount from their online shop by entering QUIRKLOVE. So snag some art, jewelry or any other conversation pieces that make you smile with this V-day themed price drop.

Cardboard Safari is also getting us in the XOXO spirit by offering heart-themed creations like the Heart Box or Heart Wreath. Plus, all profits from those items are going to Haiti relief to spread the love even further.

Blend Creations is full of Valentine’s Day staples. Yup, I’m talking about jewelry. Pick something from their V-Day collection and get 20% with the code BLOVED or check out their new Connection necklaces- they’re a great modern take on the traditional family necklace.

Etsy Kids is gearing up to celebrate warmer weather with their new Spring Shopping Guide. Stay tuned for that shortly (here’s hoping it brings some sunshine along with it) and poke around for some crafty & creative stuff in the meantime- whether you’re a kid or just a kid at heart.

The Natural Sleep Store can definitely hook you up with an eco-friendly night’s sleep (we actually bought a new mattress from them last summer). Pick from organic varieties (like our Savvy Rest or even the Savvy Baby) as well as a slew of other good-for-you bedding options.

Lisa Leonard Designs offers you more ways to wear your heart on your sleeve, er, neck. Check out her new heartstrings necklace as a personalized spin on a go-to Valentine’s Day gift. Sherry has a few of her designs and the compliments just keep coming.

Frame The Date wants you to say “be mine” to their custom-framed commemorative gifts. In fact, saying BEMINE at checkout will get you 10% off any framed date order through Valentine’s. Sweet.

WallQuotes.com provides simple ways to remind you of the important things in life. Choose from their existing designs or create one of your own (heck, we have a few leftover quotes from our DIY calendar that we could put to use).

Emmy Lu continues to get our dorky DIY-lovin’ selves excited. Their amazingly appealing paper goods give you the convenience of high-quality professional designs with the homemade satisfaction of printing ’em yourself (and saving some moolah while you’re at it).

A Beach Cottage is beachy chic blogging from Down Under. Follow Sarah as she embraces home styles that we love: natural, cozy, and white, white, white! Just reading her blog makes us more than ready for a trip to the beach. C’mon summer, bring it on.

V for the Home is Deborah Valentine’s vision for imaginative home furnishings that bring so much interest and texture to your home. We highly recommend a stop by her amazingly inspiring shop here in Richmond (near the corner of Libbie & Patterson) – and not just because her last name is Valentine.

So that wraps up this month’s lovefest for our sponsors. Thanks to all of them, and to all of you, for keeping Young House Love going. We wish you all a smooch-filled weekend (with a few steals and deals worked in there too). And stay tuned for another V-day related post this afternoon for all of you sappy lovebirds out there.

    After reading about them on your website I placed an order with Frame the Date. The customer service was fantastic and our framed date is beautiful. We mixed it into a wall collage of family pictures and I get many comments on it. I highly recommend them!

      So glad to hear that you had such a good experience. They’re always so friendly and sweet to us so it’s no surprise. And we’re glad your new art is earning lots of compliments!
