Their cotton headbands are reversible so you get two options. It’s super cute. Made in one size but the elastic gives it a good fit. 

Available online and in select NC stores. (check online for December specials)

I received these items from Pear to help facilitate the writing of an honest review. A positive review is not  guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.

I’ve seen this spider off a tree located in a shopping complex parking lot for over a month.

 

Some shoppers noticed (wow) and some didn’t.

Zoomed as much as I could and kept my distance.

When the weather permits, I open windows. But lots of times some beautiful fresh breezes get things stirred up and then SLAM. You guessed it, doors blow closed.

Stoppy is helpful for keeping interior doors still when windows are wide open letting glorious fresh air inside. Gotta love that fresh air! The decorative little Stoppy firmly holds my doors in place. Made of a rubber like material, I used it safely on my tile and wood. Visit the Under The Roof Decorating website for more uses for the Stoppy.

Colorful comma shaped door stoppers compliment your decor.

This is perfect for any Steelers fan.

But I need an Orange and Black Stoppy pair. Who Dey!

Thanks everyone for entering!

Mountain Rose Herbs offers herbal products of the freshest quality. The photo will  link  to their site where you can see for yourself their plentiful selection of  natural and organic products.

I reviewed the Organic Oregon Chai Tea  & the Celestial Tea Strainer.
Contains: Organic Ginger root, organic Cinnamon, organic Darjeeling Tea, organic Cardamom, organic Cloves, organic Nutmeg, and organic Vanilla bean.
This was my first experience drinking loose leaf tea. I experimented and enjoyed it black, with a little milk which added some richness and sweetness, and with a teaspoon of honey -my favorite. It suited me best at breakfast; I liked the Oregon Chai paired with Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Honey Grahams or Nonni’s Original Biscotti.  🙂 I really appreciated the vanilla in this tea.
The Celestial Tea Strainer is stainless steel and fits on mugs of all sizes.  It’s an attractive way to brew loose teas.
I also reviewed the Cucumber Aroma Spray.
Contains: Certified Organic Cucumber Hydrosol, Distilled water, and Witch Hazel extract.
This is how Mountain Rose describes the Cucumber Mist:
 Pure and fresh “summer in a bottle”, this has become our affectionate name for this wonderful and irresistible new aroma spray. Merely a mist or two will invoke summertime memories, and perhaps a little bit of salivation from the intoxicating scent of fresh cucumber slices. Refreshing and evocative, this aroma spray smells like freshly cut cucumber straight out of the garden. It is superb as a room freshener, body spritzer, as a facial mist, and it has anti-inflammatory and soothing effects on the skin. Who could ask for more?
I love the simple, natural ingredients. The scent is all cucumber! I used it as a kitchen freshener and it helps with the wintertime blues.
The winner is: Bev Elliott
