Holly Jolly Thank Yous

**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 post that involves holiday crafting, bouncers, and beauty queens (really). Oh and it has new tour stops that were added too.

It’s time for our monthly showing of thanks to our sponsors (the folks who help make the other 30-plus posts a reality). And with Christmas being just over a week away (!) – and while there’s still some time to do a little shopping – we thought we’d share a few things that make us feel pretty jolly. We haven’t been gifted any of these items (here’s our no-swag policy) but there are plenty that would make good gifts. And be sure to peruse the round-up of discounts at the end to save some loot. And PS – you’ll find a hint for Monday’s $500 giveaway plus a sneak peek of our holiday card at the bottom (which we’ll share in full view as soon as the ones we sent out are received).

  • Bicycles & bike-related gear, art, and clothing (like this quirky shirt) from Public Bikes.
  • This dreamy photo from Sherri Conley, the artist behind the photos in our living room.
  • This loving wall decal from WallQuotes, which are part of their new winter collection.
  • Recipe cards from 1 Canoe 2 to keep all of your holiday dishes organized stylishly.
  • Joss & Main‘s sale event filled with colorful graphic poufs, pillows, and ottomans.
  • This frosted glass mosaic from The Tile Shop (love that it’s called “Crushed Ice”).
  • Shades of Light‘s dhurrie rugs, especially this candy-cane-ish one.
  • The high-larious blogger behind Nice Girl Notes who now offers nice girl notebooks.

  • This stencil from Royal Design Studio that totally looks like an awesome tile pattern.

    Way to go on the red theme you have going on with these picks! It makes this post look so festive! Have I also told you recently that I think it is AWESOME your sponsors give readers a discount. That is pretty sweet. Thanks sponsors!

    Shades of light shopping spree? :) perfect timing, I’ve been wanting to try fish foam AND I’ve been considering a pouf…gotta go, time to shop!

  3. Alyssa says

    Okay, I’ve looked, but never shopped at j&m…first question, you said the poufs are on sale, are their prices listed the sale prices? And in the description it says the cubes are machine washable…does anyone know if that means the covers come off or are you only buying the cover and you have to fill it yourself? Silly thought, but I’m just wondering:)

      They usually list the regular price and the sale price (so you see the mark-down and you get the lower marked down price). As for the covers, we’re not sure. Anyone know?

    I’m dreaming of a Shades of Light giveaway! I NEED new lamps in my den and haven’t had any luck at all finding some.
