Things We Love – Once Upon a Room Bedroom Collection

Once Upon A Room Bed Collection

Once Upon A Room Bedroom Collection

We love this children’s furniture collection from Poshtots. Whimsical and yet beautiful. This collection is made by hand of ceramic mosaics and wood and is hand painted. Shown here with a Pink Gingham theme and is also available in Green Gingham, this collection will surely make heads turn. No two items are alike so this makes this collection truly one of a kind. Items shown here are the twin bed (47″W x 82″L x 72″H headboard), with optional Monogrammed Linen Chest (17″W x 29″D x 18″H) where you can display your childs name, a French Bedside Night Table,Two Drawer (26″W x 16″D x 28.5″H). Also available is a matching Queen Anne Lamp with rosebud shade (28.5″W x 6.5″D x 28.5″H) that comes with a rose ceramic finial on top.

The Once Upon A Room Bed Collection is a pretty penny, but you can order ala carte, too.

Here’s a coupon for you to save $100 on your order of $750+

Things We Love – Budget Celebrations: The Hostess Guide to Year-Round Entertaining on a Dime

Budget Celebrations: The Hostess Guide to Year-Round Entertaining on a Dime
Where to buy: www.amazon.com
Review by: ACMom

Money is tight these days, but that doesn’t mean we can’t invite our friends and families over to have a good time.

We simply need to know some budget-friendly strategies so we can have a great time – for less.

Budget Celebrations
is a great book with tons of advice on how to host parties all year round on a budget. It also gives helpful tips on how to plan ahead so you, the hostess, can enjoy a stress-free time at the party.

I particularly like the way the book is organized. For example, Chapter 1 is entitled: Halloween: Cast a Spell. Within this chapter you can read up on budget-friendly menus and recipes as well as low-cost decoration ideas to complement the occasion. Other chapters include Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, 4th July and Special Occasions.

This book is a very helpful guide for anyone who likes to throw a good party, but is mindful of the cost. With the help of the Budget Celebrations book, you can have a fabulous time, without breaking the bank and your budget.

Things We Love – One Great Family Geneological Service


http://www.onegreatfamily.com
OneGreatFamily is a geneology website like no other. Essentially, the site is a is a cooperative effort between you and the rest of the world – because it allows everyone to combine their knowledge and data to build one huge, shared database.

OneGreatFamily is more than a simple collection of different family trees. Using breakthrough technology, OneGreatFamily is actually linking all of the family trees together into one great family.

What This Means To You:

With the world working together on one family tree, each individual is able to leverage the effort and research of all OneGreatFamily users rather than wasting time duplicating research that others have already done.

How It Works:

After you enter what you already know about your ancestors, OneGreatFamily begins searching for more of your ancestors. Once this search process starts, it never stops.

A genealogist can only search for information about one ancestor at a time. The OneGreatFamily automated search engine continually looks for additional information and relatives for every one of your ancestors at the same time.

As site members add new individuals, the search process checks to see if any of them are your ancestors. Even if they find some of your ancestors today, they may find more in a week, a month, or a year.

Once they find new information about your ancestors, they notify you by email – and when you login to OneGreatFamily. You can see the new information about your ancestors in your family tree.

As OneGreatFamily continues to search for your ancestors, you can review the ancestors they added, add new ancestors yourself, and collaborate with others who are looking for your ancestors too.
