Nova Natural {giveaway}


I discovered Nova Natural when my now sixteen year old son was preschool age, and they have remained my favorite natural toy shop. I love that I can shop with them and trust the origins of the toys, and know that they are safe and natural as well. This weekend I am excited to share that they are offering a gift to TWO winners!

Nova Natural is a small, family-run business based in the beautiful state of Vermont. Our goal is to be your trusted source for children’s toys and crafts that allow imaginations to run wild, engage curious minds, and foster appreciation for nature. We carefully handpick every item that goes into our catalog, and it’s important to us that we try our very best to offer you fair trade products made with renewable resources. We hope you find beauty and wonder in our toys!




The holiday season is upon us, and we’ll soon be sitting down to lovingly prepared meals with our friends and family. Our holiday catalogs feature everything a child needs to host their own imaginary festive dinner, complete with dolly dinner guests. Elsa’s Kitchen features an oven, two burners, a sink and storage, and our  flowered enamel wear is perfect for preparing meals in the play kitchen and serving dinner and tea.


We’re excited to be giving away an Elsa’s kitchen to one lucky family this week! Click here to enter on our web site!


Why not invite a few new doll friends to dinner? Our fair trade Big Friend Waldorf Dolls are great company, and we’ve found some truly charming wooden doll furniture to make them feel right at home, including a perfectly-sized table and chairs for Christmas dinner. Your child will love hosting their very own holiday party, and when the time comes when you need help in the kitchen this Christmas season, they’ll be eager to jump in!




Nova Natural would like to give TWO winners each a $50 eGift Card! For your chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post. Comments are closed and the winners are Jessica VT and and Leah D.

Good luck everyone!!

Little Spruce Organics {giveaway}

My favorite way to keep my kids warm is with wool, and Little Spruce Organics is the family run shop where I buy their woollies.  Today’s giveaway though, is for you ladies! Little Spruce has really expanded its offerings for adults. Bethany from Little Spruce sent me a wool/silk blend shirt to try and I have been wearing it everyday! It’s the perfect weight, cozy and warm without being itchy or heavy. I ordered a size large, because I don’t like my clothes to touch me 🙂 but I think that these are actually  meant to be snug, and worn as a base layer.


From Little Spruce:

My name is Bethany, and I am the owner of Little Spruce Organics. We are a small, family-run business that offers a unique selection of organic wool & cotton apparel for babies, children, and adults, breastfeeding apparel, and natural toys. We specialize in woolens for babies and toddlers and are committed to organic and natural fibers. We are discontinuing cloth diapering products in our store, so beginning Monday, November 28th, please watch for some great discounts! The Disana organic merino wool covers (pictured above) will have a $12.95 starting price! We carry a large variety of beautiful, natural toys, and many of those will be discounted on Cyber Monday as well!

(Both of my little boys also wear their Disana boiled wool jackets all winter. Job is now wearing the one that Silas wore for two years as well.)

For today’s giveaway, Little Spruce Organics is offering one reader an Engel Organic wool/silk long sleeved shirt!  The winner may select their size and color of choice.

In addition, be sure to “like” Little Spruce Organics on Facebook so you can keep up with their special offers! There will be lots of markdowns on Cyber Monday!
