About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Fun Friday Review & GIVEAWAY

 I know it's hard to think about Christmas but it's actually only 100 days away.  ONE HUNDRED days until Christmas!  I'm pretty sure I just finished packing away all the Christmas decorations in the basement last month. Maybe I should just become one of those all year round Christmas decorators.  Hallmark has this adorable miniature keepsake Ornament Tree that you will want this year.  It comes with the sweetest 12 Days of Christmas mini porcelain ornaments that hang beautifully on each branch.  

The mini ornaments are made of porcelain with intricate hints of gold and bisque, and will be released periodically in sets of three in the months leading up to Christmas. The first set of mini porcelain ornaments include a partridge in a pear tree, a turtle dove, and a calling bird that will help count down the first three days this holiday season.  The second set (days 4-6) will be available on October 1, 2016.  There are total of 4 sets and these will be available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores or on Hallmark.com.

The miniature display tree has a gold finish and is perfect for displaying these miniature ornaments atop a table or mantel.   This Hallmark Keepsake is perfect for reflecting on those little "golden" moments that make the holidays so special. 

The tree retails at $29.95 and each set of ornaments retail at $24.95.  You can purchase the tree and the first set of ornaments by clicking here

I love when I can give my readers a chance to win items and Hallmark has graciously allowed me to give one of you your own miniature keepsake Ornament Tree along with Days 1-3 mini ornaments.  Just enter the giveaway below for your chance to win.  Giveaway will end on Thursday, October 29th and winner will be contacted by October 1.

*Disclosure - I received one miniature keepsake ornament tree and days 1-3 mini ornaments from #lovehallmark in exchange for a review.  All opinions expressed here are my own.
