Gifts For The Home


Tis the season of gift guides! I like gift guides. I do. However, instead of searching out things to include in a gift guide I decided to sit back and let the gifts come to me. All year long I've been keeping careful tracks of the products that I absolutely loved, products that I couldn't stop talking about, products that I had to share with you!

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®

Remember my amazing bedroom makeover? It went from this...

To this!


And let me tell you the key to that transformation. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® - a decorative paint. Well, Sara Falder of Flower + Furbish and lots and lots of chalk paint®. Seriously, we chalk painted everything. The walls. The side tables. The hope chest. The dresser. I'm surprised we didn't chalk paint® the rug. 

Actually, we thought about it but we ran out of time.

This stuff is seriously amazing. No sanding. No priming. Just transformation. 

I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Shark Rocket Ultra Upright


There are two type of people in the world. People who would be thrilled to get a killer vacuum for Christmas and people who would be outraged. 

If you happen to be shopping for the former, may I recommend the Shark Rocket Ultra Upright. I'm not going to lie I was skeptical when they claimed it compared to a full size Dyson. I have a full size Dyson I LOVE and I couldn't imagine this tiny thing could compare.

Then, I turned it on.

Y'all, it literally pulled me across the room. This little baby has serious suction and is so easy to use. I also really like the Power I setting because it doesn't pull up my lighter throw rugs when I try to vacuum them. 

I find myself reaching for it over and over. The Dyson is getting a little lonely.

Sara Falder of Flower + Furbish is giving one lucky reader a copy of Annie Sloan's Colour Recipes for Painted Furniture and More! Leave a comment telling us what you would chalk paint and then use the Rafflecopter to wrack up more entries.
