Review from ToggleTails!

I recently had the pleasure to do a review for the cutest little Etsy store-- ToggleTails

I was sent this adorable personalized acrylic tray!

ToggleTails offers a great variety of personalized gifts! Here are just a few of my favorites.....
I absolutely adore these precious "Mommy and Me" Keepsakes!!
At ToggleTails you can also find....


Personalized Candles

Let me tell you a little more about ToggleTails:
"Any item in my shop can by Customized, Personalized, Initialized, or Monogrammed. Buckets can be customized for baby showers, wedding showers, children's birthday parties or any upcoming event in colors of your choice. Candles can be customized for weddings, receptions, showers, parties, etc. Any item will make a great personalized gift for family and friends. "Toggletails" can customize just for you. Also check out my keychains and jewelry as they too will make great gifts for you friends and family. The keychain design is strictly mine and you will not see it anywhere else. It is not the typical key fob that is being done everywhere. It is a one-of-a-kind design that's mine! Also, I love to design unique jewelry. I do not reproduce any of the beaded jewelry pieces. This doesn't include the monogram necklaces. I love to bring my visions to life and that's what I try to do with my jewelry items.
I can customize any of the personalized items just for you!!"

Willow House Adoption Fundraiser!

Melissa is a Willow House Design Consultant and has contacted me about hosting a Willow House party on our blog to help us with our adoption financially by selflessly donating her commission from a Willow House party!! I was totally blown away by the love and selflessness of someone who really doesn't even know Daniel and I but wanted to help in any way she can.

I know many of you love to decorate, entertain and would love these products, so we will be hosting the party on our blog!

A percentage of all purchases through this party will go to our adoption fund. Customers who purchase $39.96 will receive an additional item ($40 or less) at half-off! You could purchase something for yourself and get a gift from someone else at half-off! If you have any questions please feel free to email

Haven't heard of Willow House before?
It is a direct sales company formerly Southern Living at Home.

Let me tell you a little more about Willow House and their Mission Statement:

"At Willow House, we embody grace, warmth, and a bit of magic. Like our namesake willow, we sway with the trends but are not overwhelmed by them. We are strong, responsive to the seasons, and always beautiful. Our roots keep us firmly grounded in our core beliefs as we impact the world with a touch that is ever-confident and feather-light."

About Willow House:

"Think about the end of a long day: You juggle grocery bags and step into your home.

Immediately, you feel better. The air smells fresh, with a hint of herbs and flowers. There’s a designated place to rest your bags, a bowl for your keys, a tray for mail waiting to be sorted. You’re surrounded by pretty colors and fresh flowers.

You’ve hardly taken a step, but your day is already so much better. That’s the feeling we strive for with every Willow House product. Each product is designed to function for your needs, complementing pieces you already know and love."

Willow House offers gorgeous home decor — their catalog is packed with ideas, inspiration and beautiful products for your home!

Here are just a few of the beautiful things that you will find at Willow House--

**Be sure to check out Willow House "Outlet" for some amazing deals!!**

If you are interested in ordering from Willow House you can go to to order. There you can view the catalog or online store.

*When you order $39.96 or more, you can choose to add another item ($40 or less) to your cart at half-off by choosing "Add as a Special" when viewing an item.

You will need to enter:
Lyndsie Brooker as the hostess and Melissa Spell as the Consultant .

If you have ANY questions you can email Melissa

*All orders must be in by January 31st!!

THANK YOU Melissa for being so selfless and helping us bring Baby B home!!! I don't have the words to express how thankful we are so we will simply, and humbly say......Thank You! ~Daniel and Lyndsie
