A Blizzard Of Thanks

**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 something we made (and it’s free for anyone who wants it!).

It’s time for our once-a-month public “thank you” to our sponsors because, heck, they make the other 30+ posts that we write each month possible. Plus I just wanted to hide a picture of my old bangs in the mix. We haven’t received any of the items shown below (cue link to our no-swag policy) but we fancy them nonetheless. And as a subtle prayer to the snow gods that we see get some sledding in at some point this season, this month’s theme is a snowy white. Plus, at the bottom we’ve got a hint for Mondays’ giveaway as well as a bunch of discounts for ya. Woot.

  • Cozy throws from this Joss & Main sale, especially this stripey fellow.
  • Marble tiles of all shapes and sizes available at the  The Tile Shop. Yes please.
  • Like their presidents print, this Wild West Outlaws print from 1 Canoe 2 rocks my socks.
  • WallQuotes‘ confidence-inducing decals (they’re pretty perfect for resolution season).
  • A sexy starburst mirror still gets us every time, including this one from Shades of Light.
  • These stacking rings from Heart & Stone Jewelry which could be our blogging motto.
  • Tons of milk glass items, like this lace edge bowl for $15, for sale on Ruby Lane.
  • Searching Rentini’s vacation home catalog, including the option to sort by activity.
  • A classic trellis stencil from Royal Design Studio which looks darn hot in black & white.
  • Fish Foam doing its foamy thing, on windows and windshields alike.
  • FSC-certified, post-consumer & 100% recyclable organization tools via Naked Binders.
  • This sleek Oreck air purifier (it’s currently on sale for $100 off!)
  • Smock Paper‘s 2013 letterpress calendars in case you’re late on your calendar-gettin’.
  • This bird-tastic card from Freshline Illustration. Polly want a greeting?
  • Perusing pulls galore on Liberty Hardware. So much satin nickel-y goodness.
  • Silhouette Blue‘s personalized stationery, like this one for anyone getting hitched.
  • Nice Girl Notes‘ house-cleaning tips, complete with stick figures and lots of laughs.
  • New ideas from Mirror Mate on their blog, like framing out a whiteboard.
  • Now for hint I drew about Monday’s giveaway, which totals $500 in prizes.
  • And not that anyone asked, but here’s a pic of my awesome bangs (circa 1995).

And here are the deets on those DISCOUNTS:

    I don’t know what your “free” thing is that you made that’s coming up in the next post – but I want it!! (Can this count as me “claiming” it? :)) This is my total faith in you guys that it’s gonna be awesome (or funny) and either way I can give it a good home. Plus my husband and I live on the Southside area of Richmond for easy pick up/delivery!

      No need to worry about claiming it. There’s not a limited number and no pick-up required. But you’re so sweet to be so on top of things this morning!

    Love seeing Red Barn in your list, they’re just a few blocks from our house. Amy is great and we love her store. You can always fine really cool and unique items in there.
