A beautiful set of sheers. – HLC.ME 2 Piece Sheer Window Curtain Grommet Panels.

Standard

I love sheer curtains, and I love how they are now available with grommets. I like to place a pair of sheers in-between a set of solid color curtains, on a large window. I think it softens up the look, and really adds some flare too what would otherwise be a flat look. It’s hard to commit to a pattern on curtains, because than you’re stuck with a design. But, with plain curtains, you can add sheers to add flare to the window. It’s like jewelry, and your clothing. These sheers are pretty. They are sheers and, we all know, that means thin fabric. These sheers arrived with no stains, tears, or snags. They had absolutely no odor to them upon arrival. I have anaphylactic reactions to heavy chemical use in fabrics, and I had no issues with these curtains. I can’t believe they have them available in 20 color options. I am loving my white ones. It’s such a fresh, breezy color. It’s perfect paired with my new grey curtains. Each panel is 54” wide, and I ordered the 84” length, to match my curtains. All of the grommets were done well. There are 8 per panel. They even have 4 length options as well. The stitching was as well done as expected on this sheer fabric. I have no unravelling spots, or pulled spots. I’ve tried sewing on this thin fabric before, and it’s an adventure if you don’t do it all of the time, lol. The material used is Polyester Voile. Fortunately, my 2 panels were the same length and size. They were ready to go right out of the package. When you hang them between two curtain panels, you can open your curtain panels, and still keep the sheers drawn. I love the diffused light, and it actually still helps with energy savings. I am really happy with my new sheers.

So, so soft and comfortable. – North 15 Boy’s %100 Cotton Flannel Pajama Pants (Size 8 – 18).

Standard

Deer flannel pajamas 9

I have all boys. Some love to hunt, but all love animals. Even my husband is a hunter. So, I was thrilled to see this line of flannel pajama pants. They offer several different patterns with deer, and hunting dogs, as well as your traditional plaid flannels. They offer them in sizes from 8-18, and I find that they run true to size. At least the size we ordered was right on target. I love that this is true flannel, and is 100% Cotton. So many companies are cheaping out now, and use Polyester. My pair of jammy pants arrived with no odor to them whatsoever. They were very clean, and fresh looking. My younger son absolutely loves them, especially because they feel so soft and comfortable. He will only wear things that are soft and comfortable, lol. Quality wise, they are top notch. All of the stitching was done tight and on point. I didn’t even have a dangly thread to trim. They arrived with no stains, tears, holes, snags, or deformity. The legs are nice and even. The waist has a 1 ½” wide elastic band and draw string. The draw string does not have to be used though, the elastic was done well, and holds the pants up perfectly. Since it is a wider waistband, it sits flatter and won’t roll on you. They also stitched the elastic very well. When it’s not done well, it can start rolling on you right away. These are not flame retardant, like some children’s jammies. I rather have my son wear cotton anyhow. It is healthier for the skin. They can be washed and dried. They are all cotton, and can shrink a little. I suggest drying on a cooler temp, and we wash everything with cold water. Overall, we are extremely happy with these flannel pants. They more than met our expectations. I can’t express enough how much my son loves them.

Here is their size chart:

Size 8  Waist 11 inches front rise 10 ½ inches Back rise 12 inches Out seam 36 ½

Size 10-12  Waist 12 inches front rise 11 ¼ inches Back rise 12 ¾ inches Out seam 37 ½

Size 14-16  Waist 13 inches front rise 12 inches Back rise 13 ½ inches Out seam 38 ½

Size 18  Waist 14 inches front rise 12 ¾ inches Back rise 14 ¼ inches Out seam 39 ½

Sweet dreams. – Restoration Goods’ Italian Luxury Soft Brushed Microfiber 4 Piece Deluxe Bed Sheet Set.

Standard

I am always amazed at how much everything is going up in price. Basic necessities cost so much nowadays. Bedding is also getting out of hand. It’s truly ridiculous. I was so surprised to see sheets for a King sized bed be so affordable. Currently they are only $25.50 for a complete set. They are very soft to the touch, and are easily machine washed and dried. In a set comes: 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, and 2 King sized pillow cases. These are microfiber sheets, but the material used is Polyester. They happen to be 100% Polyester. I can’t personally sleep on these sheets. I have a huge skin sensitivity to Polyester. I, however, will be using the fitted sheet to cover up my box springs. We are going to a platform bed soon, and I needed an extra fitted sheet for this purpose. Putting a sheet over your Box springs helps to keep the dust down too. The pillow cases measure out at 40” long and 20” wide. There is a flap on the inside of the pillowcase to tuck your pillow in as well. That is a nice feature at this price point. My sheets arrived in very good condition. I had no holes, tears, stains, or snags on them. There was also no odor whatsoever to them as well. I love the fitted sheet in this set. It actually has the elastic sewn completely around it. I hate when the sheet only has the corners done. The sheet always pops off like this. This fitted sheet also is a deep pocket sheet. It can fit a very large mattress. It’s 18”, so I would say 16” well. You want it to be able to wrap the sheet around to the underside. Since it is a Polyester sheet set, with a microfiber feel, they are so easy to wash and dry. They don’t wrinkle as much as cotton. These are not ultra-thin like a lot of microfiber is. They will definitely last longer than others I’ve had in the past for the kids. They are basic sheets, nothing fancy. But for the price, they are pretty nice! They have them available in 10 other colors right now, and offer them in Twin, Full, Queen, King, and California King. You really can’t go wrong with this set.

Bathroom Style. – Stainless Steel Mason Jar Toothbrush Holder by Nicole-Rhea.

Standard

Anything mason jar is all the rage right now. It’s a classic that keeps coming back. It has made its’ way into all the rooms of our homes, ranging from cups, storage, candle holders, and now, toothbrush holders. This toothbrush holder from Nicole-Rhea is so cute. It is really a mason jar, with a retro fit top on it to accommodate 4 tooth brushes. It is a standard size 16oz Mason Jar, and will fit up to 4 standard sized toothbrushes. If you had an electric one, you would have to unscrew the top off of it. I normally use an OralB toothbrush, and those fit in through the top, perfectly. This is glass, so make sure you have a secure place on your countertop to place it. Glass is the last thing you want breaking in your bathroom. The top of this jar is made out of 304 stainless steel. It should not rust on you. My top was made really well. The holes can be sharp, so this will not be good with little children. We know how much they love to shove their fingers into everything. The top is threaded well also. I have no issues removing it and putting it back on. If you have a smaller countertop/bathroom, this is nice to have. Since it’s clear, it visually takes up less space, and looks nice and fresh in the space, as well. It arrives with jute cord wrapped around the top if the jar. It’s easily replaceable, as needed. Since it is in the bathroom, you’ll need to clean this jar frequently. It may end up needing replacement. You can attach any type of cord, ribbon, or more jute of your choice. I like how you can change the look around the holidays. For example: Christmas ribbon around Christmas. Birthday ribbon around someone’s birthday. You have Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, Veteran’s day, and so much more. You can even just color coordinate it to your bathroom décor. My favorite part of the jar, is where it says made in the USA. I always love seeing that. Since it is part of the glass, it can never be removed, too. You can use this for other reasons too. If you think outside of the box, you can use this for your special pens on your desk, or as a bud vase as well. It comes nicely packaged. Unfortunately, my box was opened up inside the box Amazon shipped it in. But, that was not the fault of the company. Overall, it’s a well-made product, and functions beautifully as well.

Protect that table! – MJH Innovations’ Picnic Time Bamboo Coasters.

Standard

bamboo coasters 2

One of my sons quickly found out one day, why you have to use a coaster. As soon as I bought him a new desk a few years ago, he immediately places his mug of coffee down on it. It left a white ring on it within seconds. You should have seen his face, lol. So, if you have wood furniture, coasters are a necessity. I received this set of 12, 100% bamboo coasters from MJH Innovations. They also have them available in a set of 6, and a set of 24. The coasters are exact replicas of themselves. These are all wood, and there is no backing on them, like felt, or silicon, to keep them from sliding. So, in regards to little kids using them, they probably wouldn’t work. I can picture the coasters flying off the table due to little hands, lol.  These coasters are great for adults, who carefully place their drinks down on them. They do have cuts down the center of them. These are flat to the surface, so there is no rocking of the coaster, unless your table is uneven. The coaster top and bottom are perfectly flat. There is a total of 7 cuts down the center of each coaster. If your cups sweat, the fluid will enter these grooves. This helps keep the top of the coaster non slippery. When you are done using them though, make sure you dry off the coasters, to ensure their longevity. Otherwise, water will eventual dry out these coasters. The set arrives plainly wrapped in a cellophane wrapper. I wish these had a coaster holder. It would have made these a really nice set. You can always add your own backing, or those peel and stick felt feet sold at your local hardware store, if needed. I love the two tone color scheme with the dark and light bamboo. Bamboo is also a very eco-friendly material as well. The coasters have no chemical odor to them. You can actually just smell the nice scent of wood. I was happy to see that they didn’t heavily treat these with chemicals. It’s becoming a common practice nowadays. Mine arrived in great condition. Only one had a stray cut down one of the grooves, but it doesn’t deter from the function or beauty of them. They measure out at 3.75” in diameter, with my ruler, and 5/16th of an inch thick. They have a warning label on the back of them as well that states to only wash with a damp cloth, to help prevent cracking and warping of the wood. I have had no issues with various styles of cups on these coasters. I usually drink out of my Yeti cup, lol, bit I tried others: glass, plastic. I’ve had no issues. My home is air conditioned, so I haven’t had big sweating issues, where water would run from the grooves onto the table.

Now, on another note with these coasters, we love their look. We plan on doing something artistic with them. Be it, including them into a cabinet build, as part of a door facing. We are still thinking about it. We love them lined up together, in a square configuration. They have a really dramatic look that way. If incorporated in the door, of a center door of a cabinet. That would be a great focal point, and very eye catching. You can have the kids make decorations with these as well. Drill little holes in them, and make incredible gift tags around the holidays. You can make these part of a gift basket that includes wine, wine glasses, and cheeses. Be creative, have fun. This is a well-made, beautiful product.

It’s so fluffy! – Really Stuffed™ Volleyball Pillow.

Standard

My youngest has a freaky allergy to bugs. Not sure which ones. He severely reacts at times, and at other times, really welts up and feels very sick. He is not an outdoor type of kid because of this. So, I was happy to see this ball. It’s bright, and fun looking. It can be thrown in the house, and he can run around and be all “kid” with it. I don’t have to worry too much, about him breaking anything. This is a super plush, 8”, volleyball. The bright blue and yellow are reminiscent to me of volleyballs. It is also so vibrant and easy to see where it landed. It is so super plush, you could actually lay on it, like a pillow. This over stuffed ball, is even close to the size of a real volleyball. Depending on the size of your indoor basketball hoop, if you have one, you may be able to use this ball with it. It should swish right through. Since it is easy to grasp, because it is stuffed, it is even good for little ones, when experiencing their first ball play. All of the stitching was well done on this ball. Mine arrived in perfect condition. It has no holes, stains, tears, or odors on it and to it. It’s really well made. I love how all ages can play with this together, in home. Just because you are inside, doesn’t mean you can’t play around and have some fun together as a family. My son can even throw this around to himself to burn off that energy that all our young ones have. He always has to be busy, and this ball fits the bill. He can just hold onto it, and fling it around. He can roll it around with his feet, under his desk, when he’s at his computer, and so much more. It’s the perfect toy for indoors.

Yes, LEDs! – Innovative Goods’ Lux LED 60W Equivalent Light Bulb 6-Pack.

Standard

750 lumen LED lightbulb set 6

Yea, LEDs. This lady loves LEDs, lol. Ever since we started switching over, and saw how much the electricity bill actually came down, I was hooked. That, and the fact that a while back, my older son, while goofing around with his friends, smashed a CFL bulb, in his room. Those bulbs have Mercury in them. Wow, did that freak me out. I threw so much stuff away. It took forever to clean, and he was banished from his room for over a week. Regular bulbs cost a lot to run, and shatter and make a dangerous mess. CFL bulbs are dangerous when broken, and can’t just be thrown away into the regular trash. That right there is a giant red flag not to own one. It turns out that they emit radiation also. I mean, geez, what were we thinking. The only logical bulb to have, is a LED bulb. Fortunately, they are finally coming down in price. I love this set I just received from Innovative Goods. It is their Lux LED set of 6 bulbs. Each bulb gives off 750 lumens of light, and is a 60W equivalent. These bulbs use 9W of power, which is a little more than some other 60W equivalent bulbs, but the light output is very, very bright! And, it is 51W less than a regular 60W bulb. That is a huge difference. Each bulb is also rated for 10,000 hours of usage. I removed two 60W bulbs from my fan, and placed these 2 bulbs in their place. The other lightbulb I have in my fan is a Bluetooth bulb, lol. Anyhow, I was so shocked at the difference in light. These are sooooo much brighter. They are truly 750 lumens. Thank goodness these bulbs are done with the white plastic covering. This light is easy on the eyes. The light is a warmer light. Not that stark morgue, looking light. On the Kelvin scale, they are rated at 2700K, which means it’s at the warmer of the white light scale. Another great benefit to these bulbs, at this price point, is that they are dimmable bulbs. Now, just because they are dimmable bulbs does not mean you will be able to dim them in your home. If you have an older dimming switch in your home, it is not LED compatible, and it won’t dim your bulbs. You’ll need to go to your local hardware store, and purchase a new LED dimmable switch. Those can dim regular bulbs as well. It turns out, a lot of people do not know this. These bulbs are plastic, not glass. So, not only won’t they shatter if your kid hits it with a toy, but they also do not have dangerous chemicals in them as well. I really like this set. My camera can’t do the light output justice. It immediately dims the light down to take the photo, unfortunately. That’s what happen with an automatic camera, which happens to be my phone, lol.
