Spookin’ Up Some Appreciation

**Psst- We know most Fridays we just post once, but every month on sponsor shout out day we double up. So we’ll be back in a few hours with a yard-sale related post.

For October’s public shout out of thanks to our sponsors (the people who make the other 30+ posts possible each month) we’re “embracing the spooky” and highlighting some items that have a darker side… or just make us crave candy. And there’s a hint about Monday’s giveaway hidden in here too. As always, the items haven’t been given to us (time for the obligatory no-swag policy link) and you can browse some ghoulish discounts at the bottom too. Okay, there’s actually nothing ghoulish about the discounts, I just got carried away.

  • A trio of affordable furniture painting e-books ($8 after discount) from Altar’d Designs.
  • This killer marble herringbone backsplash on The Tile Shop‘s homepage. I need CPR.
  • Speaking of which, Royal Design Studio‘s herringbone stencil looks pretty sweet.
  • Z Gallerie, who shows that Halloween can be equal parts scary and shiny.
  • Personalized silhouette jewelry from Nella Designs, like this charm made from a photo.
  • Smock Paper‘s double-sided eco wrapping paper collection. Decisions, decisions.
  • Tons of personalized and customizable stationery options from Silhouette Blue.
  • Liberty Hardware‘s combo of satin nickel & “cocoa bronze” in their Zurie collection.
  • Madcanvases‘ photo collage (it’s getting us excited to stop in Chicago on 11/10).
  • This braille “Feel the Love” necklace from Heart & Stone Jewelry that’s sweetly literal.
  • Naked Binders. They’ve got no vinyl, no PVC, and no color if you’d like.
  • Mirror Mate‘s sexy tile-looking Lexington line of mirror-ready frames.
  • First hand reviews of Fish Foam cleaner from other bloggers, like House of Smiths.
  • 1 Canoe 2‘s beautiful antique letterpress-y way of saying thanks.
  • Rentini‘s cool vacation rental options like this waterfront cabin with views of orcas!
  • Oreck VersaVac, a vacuum/steam mop that makes me want to say things like “neato.”
  • The interesting things (and commentary) from Ruby Lane seller “Dead People’s Things.”
  • Greatly-discounted mirrors galore on one of Joss & Main‘s events this week.
  • Scrapbooking materials for all occasions from FotoBella. Even creepy occasions…
  • Here’s your hint about Monday’s giveaway. It’s gonna be tiny… but still worth $400.

And here are the deets on those DISCOUNTS:

    I would really like a duvet of the grey side of the double sided blue and gray wrapping paper.

    Haha Im not sure how I can go about making this happen, but it’s just what I’ve been looking for.

    I’m trying to clean up my drool mess on my desk here at work from that Herringbone Back Splash… in love with inanimate objects is okay right?!?!

    Chicago is excited to see YOU! Are you planning on doing any house crashing? If so… I have a housewarming party the night you’re hear for my brand-new-to-me 110 year old home. Consider this your official invitation!!

    My guess for Monday’s giveaway is the Eames Elephant . . . we have one hanging out at our office right now because we’re designing an early learning center. They’re adorbs. Cheers – CT
