A Few Favorites 10.27

It's been a busy week, but I'm hoping for a calm few days off, before I go back and it all starts up again.  Here are few things I'm loving this week.

1. I entered a giveaway on Faith, Family, and Frugality.  Carly is doing an interesting feature about small home living.  And she offered to giveaway one of her cute fabric baskets to a lucky reader.  And I won!  I chose an awesome little fox print, but if you're interesting in checking out the other baskets available or some of her other homemade treats, you can find her shop at CJ's Craft Corner on Etsy.  She's also offering 10% off through today.  Go to her Etsy shop to find the coupon code.

2.  I don't think I've talked about Sevenly before, but it's a website I really like.  They are a "for profit" company that gives away $7 from every item sold to the featured charity of the week.  This week's charity is "Save the Children" which is working in Syria to help children suffering from the civil war there.  They sell men's, women's and children's tees with designs tailored to the featured charity each week.  They also sell jewelry, prints, bags, stationery, and assortment of other things that varies from time to time.  I really like this print.

3. These curtains are my inspiration for my office curtains.  I have been cutting scraps for over a year.  I made my squares 2 inches wide and tall, but it's still going to be a big project once I finally sit down to get it done.  There's not a real tutorial, but Posey does give some directions at this link: Posey Patchwork Curtains

4. Finally, I ordered from Abe's Market(affiliate link) about a month ago and one of the products I tried was this toothpaste from Nature Gate.  It's made with anise oil instead of peppermint or cinnamon.  I kind of like it.  It feels like I'm brushing my teeth with black licorice.  But not in a gross way if that makes any sense.  :)  Anyway, Abe's is giving free shipping on all Beauty and Bath and Body products this month.  So if you're interested in trying some new products, now is the time to try it out.

So, there's my round up for the week of things I'm loving.  Hope you all have a great Sunday!
