Accell’s PowerSquid Outlet Multiplier

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Moving into an old house comes with challenges, especially when dealing with limited electrical outlets. Our charming little house was built in 1888, and thankfully the previous owners had already updated the electrical to today's standards before we bought it. However, with all the electronics we run these days, there just aren't enough outlets for all our needs. Accell's PowerSquid Outlet Multiplier is the perfect solution! The PowerSquid is a safe and easy way to convert one grounded wall outlet to five grounded adapter-compatible outlets. The PowerSquid accommodates up to five bulky transformer plugs with ease, providing more flexibility than a standard power strip.
We have used the PowerSquid both in the house and in my husband's backyard workshop, and we love it! Its flexible power outlet arms bend, which really help when we're working with power tools. The PowerSquid will turn off if the devices plugged-in malfunction or if the total power drawn exceeds 1875 Watts. Plus, it can easily mount to a wall to save space, to put out-of-sight or improved accessibility. It's really been handy around our home and we are delighted with its performance!

Updating a Bedroom to a Farmhouse Theme

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
There is no faster way to update a bedroom than changing the bedding. Pardon the very old curtains and wallpaper which will both be updated at a later date. Our little house was built in 1888 and updating the rooms to a more modern farmhouse design is so much fun. I just knew a quilt was the perfect topper to our bed and Wikibuy helped me find the best offer on my new bedding set!
This bedding set includes a high quality, fully quilted, embroidered bedspread plus two matching pillow covers. It comes in about a half a dozen different colors, so I chose the beige/gray to pull in both warm and cool colors. Since our new carpeting leans toward brown, it picks up the beige. The walls will eventually be a bright white and I can hardly wait to reveal the 1888 window casings to you!
The quilting stitch is a fun, tumbling, curvy design and the embroidery is simply breathtaking. The embroidery features shades of browns, blues, and grays. I bought the queen/king size, which measures 102" x 92", for our queen size bed and although the package is actually marked king size, it fits perfectly on a queen.
The gray edging on the quilt perfectly sits around the top edge of a queen size mattress and the scalloped edges just brush the floor on the bottom corners. The pillow shams are also fully quilted and embroidered with matching gray edging. It's truly the perfect choice for my farmhouse style! I will probably choose decor for the rest of the room that pulls the grays and blues out, since the tables and dresser are dark brown.
Sleeping under this quilt is just dreamy! It's the perfect weight without being too heavy, and doesn't feel thin or cheap at all. It's made of polyester and polyester blend materials, so I can toss the set in the washer anytime it needs cleaning. I am absolutely thrilled with my new quilt set and I don't think I'd ever find one that fits my farmhouse theme better.
Come back to my blog often and check for more posts on our 1888 house renovation and design. We are doing all of the renovation ourselves and will continue to share our designs and updates as we go. There is a lot to do, so we are just tackling one project at a time. Thanks for reading!

David Oreck Candle Company - Pure Air Odor Eliminating Candle

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Living in a house that is over 100 years old comes with its challenges. Although I love my squeaky wood floors and drafty windows, I sometimes worry about what is hidden behind the walls and whether the air is truly healthy. When I started peeling back the old wallpaper, I could smell a distinct odor of cigarettes. We're slowly working our way through the entire house, freshly renovating each room, and in the meantime we're cleaning the air in our home with David Oreck Pure Air Odor Eliminating Candles.
I love the shape of the new David Oreck Pure Air Odor Eliminating 14oz Vases! They are so pretty and elegant. The flared glass is solid, not thin and cheap like the ones you buy at discount stores, making them easily reusable for years after the incredible 80 hours of use as a candle. There are ten fabulous scents to choose from, and I chose the Soft Citrus and the Apple Pear. They smell amazing and they really remove odors from the air!
These Pure Air scented candles neutralize home odors and replace them with fresh scents. Hand poured in North Carolina, trust David Oreck's exclusive vegetable and soy wax formula to burn longer and cleaner. Their soy and veggie wax formula burns 35% longer than regular candles while the wide-wick candle allows for an even, soot-free burn. I love these candles and prefer them over all other brands.
