Wooden Garden Bridge from PromotionDotCom #review

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I have always wanted a garden bridge and I am so thrilled to finally have one! We are just beginning work on the outside of our new farmhouse and we have a lot of work to do. Next month marks one year that we've been in this house and most of our time was spent renovating inside. I happened to find Promotion.com recently and they offer so many products for both inside and outside. Check out my wish list HERE!
My 5' Wooden Stained Finish Bridge arrived incredibly fast and was packaged perfectly. I love the stain on my garden bridge; it is a dark walnut, almost dark enough to look professionally charred. Assembly only took us about an hour and we were so happy that all the holes were pre-drilled and all the hardware was included.
This adorable wooden garden bridge is exactly what I needed in front of my farmhouse. We have a gravel road in our little town of 250 people, and a drainage ditch runs in front of our house so rainwater can flow southward to the Wildlife Refuge. My garden bridge now spans over that ditch and I have a straight shot from my front door through my front gate, across the bridge over the ditch, and right to my mailbox (see below).
I have had three neighbors stop already to tell me how wonderful my bridge looks. I even saw a few of the neighborhood kids running across it while they were walking to school. I am so happy with it. I cannot wait to decorate it for the seasons! It will look so cute with Christmas lights hung on the railings.
It's almost time to plant garden bulbs for next year and I think I am going to plant some in parallel rows from my fence to the bridge so when they bloom, it will form a gorgeous walkway to the bridge. I am very impressed with the quality of my garden bridge. The wood is strong and sturdy, and I expect it will last me for many years to come.
The Wood Stained Finish Bridge will look amazing in any garden, front yard, or back yard. Wouldn't it be awesome over a creek? You could even make a "rock creek" design underneath it with rounded river rocks if you don't have water on your property. There are so many ways to use this garden bridge to improve the curb appeal of your house, or to add some charm to your garden!

Hudson Glow Rattle - Interactive Teether and Rattle from Kid O

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
At first, your baby's needs are fairly simple - milk, love, touch, sleep, and clean diapers. In just a few short weeks, your baby is already craving mental stimulation, through interactions with others and their environment, in order to create brain connections that will last for a lifetime. A parent's job includes providing baby with developmental toys and activities that stimulate all the senses - hearing, seeing, touching, tasting, and smelling.
Hudson Glow Rattle by PlayMonster Kid O is a wonderful, interactive teether and rattle that will help to stimulate four of baby's senses. This adorable puppy is sized perfectly for the littlest hands at just 4"x3"x2" and it will fit into any bag for easy portability. Hudson's legs are made of a firm, textured material that is perfect for grasping, holding, and teething.
Inside Hudson's body are tiny beads that responds to baby's every move with a soft gentle rattling sound. All of the toys made by PlayMonster Kid O are tested by an independent lab for safety, and are made with no PVC, BPA, Phthalates, or lead. And just look at that sweet puppy face! Hudson is designed for ages 6 months and up; perfect for my sweet granddaughter.
Hudson has a special glow too! Just tilt Hudson's green legs down and his spots glow green, then tilt Hudson's red legs down and his spots glow red. This helps develop baby's eyesight, motor skills, intelligence, and cause-and-effect concepts. I'm very impressed with how much thought went into designing this toy. Hudson Glow Rattle gets five stars from me! Christmas isn't far off, so order today!

And, you'll also receive an incredibly detailed, inflatable globe that is both great fun and very educational. I was delighted with all the activities in this Smithsonian Exploration Station: World Atlas. Anytime that we can get kids excited about learning is a big win. I love this activity box and think it is an excellent gift idea for any child over the age of six years.

My PromotionDotCom Fall Wish List

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my post. 

As much as I love my backyard, summer is just too hot and humid to really enjoy being outside. The weatherman is saying this is our last week of near 100 temperatures, so I am looking forward to spending my fall evenings sitting on my back patio, burning wood (and marshmallows) in our fire pit, and relaxing while I watch the leaves fall from the trees. We've spent so much time indoors working on the renovations to our farmhouse, that we've really neglected the yard this first year in our home. I just discovered Promotion.com and I'm working on a wish list of items I need (and a few things I just want). You won't believe the bargains on Promotion.com!

1. A Wooden Wishing Well

Every farmhouse needs a wishing well, don't you think? This wooden wishing well is a beautiful addition to any yard, front or back, and even comes with a hanging planter bucket. This artful design gives you the opportunity to decorate with the seasons. Fill it with pumpkins for fall, plant a poinsettia in the bucket for winter, and fill the well and the bucket with vines and flowers for spring. There are so many possibilities!
2. A 43-Gallon Compost Tumbler

Okay, so compost is not pretty, but this composting tumbler will make your spring flowers grow like crazy and your summer vegetables tastier. Don't throw away kitchen scraps; just toss them in the compost tumbler with cut grass and fallen leaves (and chicken droppings). Turn it every couple of days and in just weeks you can feed your plants with compost.
3. A Chicken Coop

Ever since we moved into our farmhouse last fall, I've wanted a small flock of chickens. This fancy 60" Large Deluxe Wooden Chicken Coop is like a high-class hotel for chickens! It's also a great home for ducks, rabbits, quail, and more. It will keep the chickens safe when they aren't roaming the yard, gives them a place to lay their eggs (and an easy-open door to collect them), and honestly, it's the cutest chicken coop I've ever seen.
4. A Wooden Garden Bridge

For some, a wooden garden bridge may seem frivolous, but for me, I know exactly where I'd put this charming 5-foot long wooden bridge. I live in a small town of 250 people, so we don't have sidewalks or even pavement on our street. We do have a drainage ditch for rainwater that runs alongside the gravel road, and our mailbox is on the other side of the road. This bridge would be absolutely perfect perched over the ditch, so I wouldn't have to leap over it to get to my mail! Can you imagine how pretty it would be with holiday garland draped over the railings?
5. An Outdoor Water Fountain

A water feature in the yard is like the cherry on a sundae! I absolutely love the style of this 2-Tier Outdoor Barrel Waterfall Fountain with pump. It's perfect for a farmhouse, or any house for that matter. It provides the birds and squirrels with fresh moving water and offers the peaceful sounds of a waterfall. Set it up on your patio or tuck it into a flowerbed so that flowers grow up and around it during the spring and summer.
6. A Wooden Wagon Flower Planter

I think this is one of my absolute favorite items at Promotion.com! It's a beautiful wood wagon with wheels that roll, a handle that moves up and down, and even a couple drain holes, but I can see this wagon as so much more than a flower planter. This is the perfect home decor item for a farmhouse! I can put it in my entryway for fall, filled with pumpkins. I can put it near my Christmas tree and fill it with gifts. I can put it in my kitchen to hold cookbooks and large serving trays that don't fit in the cabinet. I can put it in the bedroom, drape a blanket over the side, and fill it with throw pillows. I think this will definitely be the first thing I get from my wish list!
7. A Wood Ladder Step Stool

My kitchen desperately needs a step stool because I have upper cabinets that I cannot even touch if I'm standing on the floor. I have nine foot ceilings and the cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling. We had purchased a metal one that is just too heavy to lug around and too big to store in the kitchen. This Folding Multi-Functional 3-Tier Ladder Wood Step Stool is lightweight, sturdy, and beautiful. Plus, the lower steps fold up into the stool so that it becomes a handy extra seat! 
8. A Waffle Maker

Okay, so I really don't NEED one, but this Stainless Steel Waffle Maker does more than just four waffles at a time. Did you know that you can cook other things on a waffle maker? Scramble up some eggs, pour it on the waffle maker, then add shredded cheese, and chopped meat and veggies, for a waffle omelet. Need something fast and filling? Toss a bunch of tator tots on the waffle maker, and add some cheese and bacon bits to make baked potato waffles. You can even use prepackaged items like pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough or pre-made cinnamon roll dough. The possibilities are endless (and delicious)!

9. A Food Dehydrator

This food dehydrator is the ultimate food-saving kitchen tool. This 5-Tray Food Dehydrator with Timer Temperature Control can help you reduce your food waste, help you keep your summer fruits and vegetables in storage longer, and help you have healthy foods available when your family wants a quick snack. Make delicious dehydrated fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, seasonings, and even crude medicines. Just think how much money you will save!
There are so many wonderful products at Promotion.com! Aside from my wish list items, they offer furniture for every room of your home, electronics, kitchen appliances, home decor, pet supplies, sporting goods, health and beauty supplies, items for baby, toys, hardware and tools, bedding, and much more. All of these brand new, high quality items are available at rock-bottom bargain prices, plus super fast delivery!

CanvasChamp - For Photos That Deserve More

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Now that nearly everyone in the world has a smartphone with a camera, we're taking more photos than ever before in history! Sadly, most of those pictures never make it further than Facebook or Instagram. Every once in a while, I'll take a picture that just deserves more than just a social media share. CanvasChamp makes absolutely gorgeous handmade canvas prints at incredibly cheap prices, and with a granddaughter this adorable, I know I'll be ordering more. This sweet photo was taken by my daughter-in-law of my granddaughter who was obviously not ready for bedtime. I sent it to CanvasChamp and in just a few days, I received this beautiful 16"x20"canvas print.
Look at the loving care used to assemble my print, with perfectly folded corners, museum quality stretching, and hanging hooks already attached on the back. I think what most impressed me about this CanvasChamp print was the extra step they take to wrap the canvas with a flat board underneath so that the canvas lays flat and doesn't move. I've had other canvas prints and no one else does that! I am thrilled with this canvas print and will definitely be ordering more from CanvasChamp. They offer a variety of options including wood prints, metal prints, acrylic prints, mugs, ornaments, calendars, towels, tote bags, tshirts, coasters, blankets, pet bowls, and so much more. You could even order all of your Christmas gifts on just the CanvasChamp.com website!

Bring home the farm this September with Peter and Pauline's Farm Magnetic Game from HABA! National Farm Animal Awareness Week is September 15-22, and you can share the life of a farmer with your little one, WITHOUT that amazing farm smell. 
Little farmers will get a kick out of this farm animal-themed magnetic arranging game. Designed for ages 3 and up, it features a variety of background scenes and a wide variety of farm inhabitants, animals, and plants, allowing children to create and re-create life on the farm.
It comes with an incredible 122 magnetic pieces, plus four background scenes on two cards. The durable metal tin storage box works for both play and for storage. Since it measures just 8.5" x 8.5" it's a great toy to take along in the car!

I love Peter and Pauline's Farm Magnetic Game! I love how compact it is, how versatile it is, and how everything packs away into one box.

Everyday Enzymes - Created for Women by Women

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Good nutrition is crucial for health (especially as you get older) but did you know that eating healthy doesn't necessarily mean your body is getting the right nutrients? Many women don't realize they have a condition called "enzyme gap" which means even if they eat healthy, their body won't benefit because there aren't enough enzymes to absorb the nutrients! Enzyme gap may not only cause digestive problems, but it can also weaken the immune system and lead to a slew of other health issues like fatigue, acne, eczema, headaches, mood swings, and joint pain. Luckily, there is an organic and healthy way to ensure you are getting the most out of those fruits and veggies - Everyday Enzymes!
Everyday Enzymes are an organic, all-natural supplement designed to help your body digest and absorb the maximum amount of nutrients. It supports the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. This supplement can help not only with digestive issues (acid reflux, nausea, gas, etc.) but it can also boost the immune system, metabolism, and improve overall health. Everyday Enzymes may be given to young children, pets and it may even be taken during pregnancy and lactation. In fact, expectant mothers find it helps with nausea! Digestive enzymes will help you eliminate abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and acid reflux. It will also help you get the most nutrition out of the food you are already eating and even to get off of pharmaceutical or over-the-counter drugs. Even if you don't have stomach problems, these supplements can help boost your immune system, fight fatigue, and even help with anxiety.
