Homestead Drying Racks {giveaway}

This weekend’s giveaway is from Homestead Drying Racks. I have owned their Pioneer wooden drying rack for years, use it nearly every day, and it is still going strong.  It is by far the most well made drying rack I have ever owned!  The owners of Homestead Drying Racks are sharing a bit about their family business here today, and giving away a drying rack as well!



“We are Mark and Kristy Gunderson, the proud owners of the Homestead Store / Homestead Drying Racks.  We are a homesteading family of 7 who all work together making handcrafted Drying Rack here on our family farm in Oregon. Our online store also carries  a variety of items and homesteading supplies.  We were given the opportunity 2 years ago to become the new owners and have been so incredibly blessed! We truly love this business, the products and the folks we get to interact with on a daily basis.  All 5 of our kids are learning life lessons as we all share a part in this together. Teaching a solid work ethic with integrity and honesty are very important to us and we get to do it doing something we love!”


Mark and Kristy would like to give one Small Things reader a Pioneer drying rack (though if that is too large for you, you could opt for the Peddler instead).  In addition they are offering a 10% discount on drying racks this week using the code DRY10.  Drying racks ship for free!  In addition to their online store, you can find Homestead Drying Racks on Facebook and Instagram.

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!!
