I’m convinced that time doesn’t fly.
It spontaneously combusts.
Because if it did in fact exist then I would use it, fill it, hug it, love it, pet it like a fluffy newborn kitten. But since logically it has evaporated into thin air, then my only conclusion is that I just didn’t have as much time this month. So here is the wrap-up, the synopsis of what little time I was given and what we did to make the most of it in the month of November.
- Pinterest Challenge Project – Antiqued Window (I give it a B-)
- Stairway gallery wall – the frames go up & art goes in!

PHOTOGRAPHY & DESIGN POSTS:
Do you realize how much this site depends on sponsors? And you? Basically, you guys make this place possible. Your support and your support of the other supporters (aka sponsor ads) allows this house-poor girl to blog…and keeps Bower Power Blog up and running. It’s true. And so I must say – especially since November is the month with an entire holiday dedicated to vocalizing our appreciation of our blessings, well….thank you. so. very. much.
I’d like to welcome Freshline Illustrations. Sure – the ad says Handmade Art & pillows…but seriously, you gotta see these cutie-patootie christmas items. They are literally sooo dear 🙂 Pun totally intended. Here’s the first pillow. And antler art.
Handmade by KP carries highly functional handcrafted items with fun fabrics and modern prints. Items like reusable market bags to baby bow ties. I love the red & white stripe apron….I would totally rock that like Martha-cookie-bakin-Stewart.
The best thing about customizable stationary and cards is that they are customizable. Which is exactly what Whirly Bird Press does…make it exactly how you want it. So if you are in the market for someone to make something just for you…this is the place.
P.C. Fallon Co. carries brand name bath & body products, home fragrance, bedding, kitchen, and gifts…basically everything you want under the Christmas tree. Oh and they have Spartina bags. Plus, since I know you guys like fancy bath products – so you gotta check out their newest line is Archipelago Botanicals. Here is the link for Archipelago Bath & Body and here is the link for Archipelago Botanicals Home Fragrance.
Evgie Nev is one amazing decal shop. Perfect for those soon-to-be moms who want to have their nurseries look special without a ton of work – slap one of these gorg decals on the wall and welcome your little one home in style. So cute it’s ridiculous. Oh and if they ever outgrow it, well, it’s a decal…just peel it off! Plus, you get 10% off with the code ‘bpblog’ so all the more reason to shop 🙂
I have fixation with my Scentsy burners and bricks. Yum. with a capital E at the end. Oh and they have their Christmas scents out. Just in time to make your house smell like that little toy factory in the north pole 🙂 And don’t forget to get a Scentsy Buddy while you are at it – you know, for the little people in your life that tend to make a room smelly 🙂 I want Ollie the Elephant so bad it hurts.
TinyPrints offers all sorts of lovely paper products such as party invites, birth announcements, greeting cards, holiday cards, thank you notes, notebooks, and address labels. I still haven’t done my Christmas cards – but they would make it easy.
Based in Sydney, Australia, Coco & Ella specialise in affordable, modern, design of custom digital & print invitations and announcements for birthdays, babies, weddings…and anything. They also offer a graphic design service for marketing material, logos, stationary and really any custom design work you can think of….I love the ampersand print. like a lot.
My own brother – yup, he’s a master plumber in the dirty south. And yes, he definitely sees his fair share of the ‘dirty’. This link is to his facebook page which has his number and if you are in the greater Birmingham area, he’s honest, affordable and hilarious…WAY more so than me. Which is helpful when your water heater shuts down in the middle of your in-laws visit. Yup – a plumber and a sense of humor are both pretty handy in that situation.
Thanks to everyone who is supporting us this month. And thanks to all you who show some love to those supporting us. You make my world turn round 🙂
