GIVEAWAY: $15 Little One Books Gift Certificate! -CLOSED-


Little One Books is a great company that helps you find quality books for children 0 - 5.  They have a team of professionals that have personally reviewed and selected each item in their online store.

Joan McCoy and Barney Cohen, grandparents of 5 children under the age of 6, started Little One Books after being overwhelmed by the number of products available.  They want to help others make informed choices among the vast amount of material you can find today.

When you go to Little One Books you can shop by the age of the child.  There you will find books, video, or music.  For each item you can see "Why we chose this book" for a great and personal review!  When millions of books are available it's nice to have a company that helps us to narrow down the selection and help us out.

I chose Disney's Classic Storybook for my 3 year old.  Here is why they chose this book, and an example of the quality reviews they have on each of the products they sell:
The review actually sold me.  I really want my daughter to enjoy books, especially since I didn't as a kid.   I thought this would be a wise book to have in my collection.  I would love it if she looked more forward to me reading her these stories than watching the movies.  :) :)  This book is beautiful!  My daughter can't take her hands off of it!  My husband was even happy with the selection of "old school" stories in it.

There is a special offer going on right now.  When you buy ANY two items you'll get a FREE Mozart for Babies CD!  Use code mozart at checkout.

Little One Books is giving away a $15 Gift Certificate to their store!!
The certificate will be mailed to the winner.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
