Emerson Creek Pottery Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Oh Neighbors,

Here is another really nice company to share At the Fence. Pull up a chair while I tell you a little bit about Emerson Creek Pottery. First off, they are handcrafted and lead free. Isn't that a great start! They are made right in Bedford, VA. The company was founded in 1977 by Priscilla Palmer and Jim Leavitt.

They carry, dinnerware, bakeware, kitchenware, Ceramic Pitchers, Tea Pots, Tea Sets and Servingware. The designs on them are beautiful. I received the Ceramic Iced Tea Pitcher with the Iris design. I really had a hard time choosing a design. Of course you can purchase matching items in each design. All the Ceramic pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe, and ovenproof. They even carry baby dishes. Now, you won't have to worry about all the toxins in plastic. (You can even personalize them!) The Baby Dishes come in Goldfish, Ladybug, and Shamrock.






They even carry lamps, clocks, candlesticks and other home decor that matches their kitchenware. I was amazed at all they carry!

Here is some information from their website:
"Influenced by the energy of Early American cobalt decoration, owners Priscilla Palmer and Jim Leavitt founded Emerson Creek Pottery in 1977. Priscilla developed the unique technique of applying natural pigments to an absorbent glaze with a Japanese Sumi-e brush. The spontaneity of the brush stroke, combined with the accuracy of design yields our distinctively recognizable style. Priscilla's deep love of the natural world provides a multitude of organic designs for all of Emerson Creek's pottery.

Our ceramic pottery has been featured at Monticello, Mt. Vernon and the Smithsonian Institute, as well as in fine homes across America. We have had the pleasure of designing customized pottery patterns for numerous clubs and organizations.

Our pottery is formed of clay made onsite. Each piece is hand made, hand painted and fired in a gas kiln. Each pattern is a series of carefully planned strokes. No templates or stencils are used. The patterns are practiced and committed to memory. The artists paint the pattern again and again. Each piece is alike and yet different, like flowers in a field. We are currently featuring 14 different lines of ceramic pottery, including our beloved signature line - Field of Iris, a classic since 1977. All of our work is microwave and dishwasher safe, lead free and ovenproof."

Emerson Creek Pottery is offering one of their four mugs in your choice of pattern. They are also going to give me a code for my neighbors to use. I will add that tomorrow evening.

Kinder-glo Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Hi Neighbors,

Join me At the Fence so I can share something with you. One of my favorite companies contacted me regarding a new design they have out. Kinder-glo now has a Quarter Moon nightlight. I love it! It is a little larger than their previous designs, and because of it's shape is probably a little easier for young children to hold. Remember Kinder-glo nightlights never get hot! So, little ones can carry them around, or even take them to bed with them. (They could also carry them to light their way to the bathroom if needed.) Each nightlight comes with it's own base where you recharge it. You can choose to let it cycle through colors, or choose just one color (Red, Blue, Green) Leave it on all night long, or you can have it fade out after 30 minutes. You choose! Best of all they are BPA and lead free. I highly recommend these nightlights. My children use them every night!




The Quarter Moon is sort of donut shaped, except one side is thinner than the other. Which actually makes a nice handle! He has the cutest smile. Any child would enjoy taking this nightlight to bed. This is definitely a product to share At the Fence.






A little about Kinder-glo:
"Blue Moon Lites is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our staff has a 25+ year span of experience in the consumer electronics world and a breadth of combined experience in multiple markets and countries. We build products on the belief that the designs should first fit a need and demand of the consumer while maintaining the most current quality and standard of technological excellence achievable in today’s market.
KinderGlo is a trademark of Blue Moon Lites Incorporated and the result of a convergence of technology and the emergence of the many children we are associated with.
Blue Moon Lites has a number of OEM and staged products in and coming to the market place based on energy efficient lighting. Promotional lights, recreational, patio and children’s markets are our focus."
These nightlights are available in other shapes also. There is an owl, a T-rex, and a brontosaurus. They are $21.95 a piece and you can order them on their website, but before you try that perhaps you would like to enter this giveaway and try to win one. Kinder-glo graciously sent me some of their new Quarter Moon Nightlights and in this giveaway there will be two winners who each get one Quarter Moon Nightlight. Then in a couple of weeks, I will be hosting another Kinder-glo giveaway.

CLOSED
Mandatory Entry:Go check out the Kinder-glo Website and come back and in a comment tell me who you would like to win this for. You do not have to include names. Just say something like:son, daughter, niece, etc. You do not have to be a blogger to enter, but you must leave a valid email where I can contact you should you win. You must complete the mandatory entry before you enter any other way. This giveaway will end 5/7 at 11:59 pm CST. The winners (2) will be chosen using random.org and will then be notified by email. The winners will have 48 hours to respond.

Snaptotes Follow-up Review

Hey Neighbors,

I received my Snaptotes Bag I wrote about in a previous post. Wait until you see the pictures. It is gorgeous! To begin with it I love the leather smell. The pictures were done on both side of my bag. They look great! The pictures are nice, well-defined, and very clear. (I was concerned that they would have a fuzzy appearance.) This would make a great gift for a mom, sister, daughter, secret friend, etc.

I really enjoyed using their design program. It was quick, easy, and fun! I was impressed by how quickly they were able to complete the project and get it into my hands. Now, I can show off my family everywhere I go! I received the Luxury Leather Grand Bucket Bag. It has a cell phone and mirror pocket, along with a small zippered pocket inside. There is so much room inside this bag. Snaptotes has product that I enjoy sharing At the Fence.

And Snaptotes has given a code for my neighbors to get 15% off any Snaptotes purchase. Just enter the code:fence15. Even if you don't purchase anything now, stop by their site to see what they have available. I am sure you will find something you like.

High Sierra Sport Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Hi Neighbors,

I thought while we were At the Fence this time, maybe we could play a little game with this one. We are doing a Scavenger Hunt! High Sierra Sport sent me this really great backpack for review. It is called a Swerve, and has sooooo many pockets. It has mesh pockets on the side to hold a water bottle. Inside the first zippered compartment on the front there are several varying sized pockets to carry pens, change, etc. There is also a detachable key fob. Then there are 2 zippered compartments where you could carry books, notebooks, gym clothes, etc. The first of these 2 has a smaller pocket where you could put an Ipod or MP3 player, as there is access to the outside for your headphones or earbud wire. Next is a small zippered pocket that would hold a wallet or change purse. There is one more large divided compartment that once again could hold books, notebooks, etc. The very last zippered compartment is padded to hold a laptop. This backpack is very well made. It has nicely padded shoulder straps with thumb-ring pulls and a very sturdy handle at the top. You can check their description here. This is definitely a company to share At the Fence with my neighbors. They carry so many different bags in so many different shapes and sizes. They are sure to have a bag that suits your needs.




Now, pay attention. This giveaway is going to be run a little different than normal. There will be one mandatory entry and then the rest is going to be set up like a scavenger hunt.

Air-O-Swiss Travel Humidifier Review and Giveaway


Hi Neighbors,

I thought I would take a moment and visit with you At the Fence and share another really nice company. Air-O-Swiss carries Ultrasonic Humidifiers, Air Washers, Evaporators, and Air Cleaners. I received the AOS 7146 Travel Ultrasonic Humidifier. (Click on the link and see their description!) Now, I believe I've mentioned previously that we travel, so this makes it a perfect size for us. We are presently visiting a friend and we have it hooked up in the children's room. Two of my daughters have allergies and have a tendency to have coughing fits and very dry lips over night. This is helping! My 12 year old has been keeping track of filling the bottle and we are using approx. 3 bottles of water a day. She loves that she is in charge of running the humidifier. The convenience of this humidifier is, you can use a water bottle (we used a .5L bottle) where ever you are. The humidifier is small, and comes with a cloth bag to carry it in, along with a small cleaning brush.

Here is a little about the Air-O-Swiss company:
"AIR-O-SWISS products have been available in North America since 2001. The PLASTON International Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of PLASTON Holding AG (Widnau, Switzerland). This relationship allows us to bring the 50 plus years of experience our company possesses in product development and innovation to the North American market.
Since 2001 the PLASTON company has quickly established the AIR-O-SWISS brand as the leader in the high performance air humidification and purification market in North America."

"Proper humidification reduces discomfort, tiredness, sickness.

Breathing dry air makes the uptake of oxygen and its subsequent transfer to the blood system more difficult. Fatigue, tiredness, headache and reduced concentration levels are symptoms of a reduced oxygen supply. "

"Proper humidification reduces chapped lips, dry, red eyes and dry, itchy skin.

As much as 60 percent of the human body is composed of water. When the air around you is dry it will draw moisture from any available source, including human cells, membranes and even your skin and lips causing drying and irritation. Adding moisture to the air eliminates the need to seek moisture from other sources."



As you can see this is just some of the benefits of having a humidifier in your home. There are many other reasons and you can look them up at the Air-O-Swiss website. Or check out their Did You Know page, it is full of interesting information! This is a product worth sharing At the Fence with my neighbors. Air-O-Swiss is offering one of their AOS 7146 Travel Humidifiers to the winner of this giveaway. Remember this is great for travel, or even setting up in a bedroom.
Mandatory Entry:Visit Air-O-Swiss and come back and leave a comment with an interesting fact you found on their site. You must complete the mandatory entry before entering any other way. You do not have to be a blogger, but you must leave a valid email where I can contact you, should you win. This giveaway will end 5/4 at 11:59pm CST.

LOOK! Guidecraft Noah's Ark Table and Chairs Set Review and Giveaway!

CLOSED
Good morning Neighbors,

Beautiful day here to meet At the Fence! I have a company to share today that is simply wonderful. Guidecraft has been around for years, providing quality educational toys and furnishings. Guidecraft was started in 1964, with 10 products in a small woodshop. Now, I have to admit, they have been around as long as I have. Mainly used by schools and such in the past, they are available to individuals now.

Guidecraft sent me a Noah's Ark Table and Chair Set. Shipping was quick and the set was well packaged. Now, as far as assembly goes, my 2 daughters 9 and 13 put it together so I could take pictures. Everything is labeled well, and it was easy to put together. I watched and instructed, and they did the work. All went well except we did put one chair leg on wrong and had to change it. (Our fault, not the directions) So yes, this is easy to assemble. It only required a philips head screwdriver.

The finished project is beautiful. The chair backs have an ark scene and the seats each have a pair of animals. One has lions and the other has deer. The table comes with a removable circle in the center (which also has an ark scene). When you remove the center there is a cloth bag attached underneath for storage. Each corner of the table has a pair of animals. (monkeys, lions, bears, leopards) My daughters love it!

The table and chairs are well made. They are sturdy and should last for years. It says ages 3+, but my nine-year old can sit in the chair with no problems. I would love to get more of this collection. They have several other pieces that match, a book display, step stool, rocking chair, toybox and a lamp. What an adorable theme for a young child's room.















Obviously this is not the only theme available, nor do they only carry furniture. They also carry blocks, art equipment, manipulatives, etc. You really need to stop by this website and check out their amazing line of products.












I am have included several pictures of us assembling the set and the finished product. To purchase this item visit their website and you can buy the set for $185. I love sharing this set At the Fence! Best news yet, they are going to allow one of you to win the Noah's Ark Table and Chairs through entering this giveaway. Great!!

Taste of the Wild Review and Giveaway!

CLOSED
Hi Neighbors,

What a beautiful spring day to meet At the Fence! I was given several samples of Taste of the Wild dog food, both the dry and canned varieties. Taste of the Wild is a no grain dog food. For the meat source in their foods they use smoked salmon, smoked fowl (duck, chicken, quail and turkey), as well as bison, venison and lamb. They also include vegetables and fruit. You can check their formulas page to find out what is in each type of food. They have a page that describes the different ingredients and what they are used for. So if you want a dog food without all those nasty fillers, you might be interested in trying Taste of the Wild.

Here's just one of the questions from their FAQ's page:
"Isn't the protein in these foods too high for my dog?
Absolutely not! There is not any reason to be fearful of higher protein levels in pet foods unless your pet is suffering from very specific kidney or liver diseases. Quality protein actually provides the necessary amino acids for your pet to remain a healthy, lean body condition. Muscles use amino acids as building blocks. When dogs are overfed, they become overweight, just like people. Providing protein that your dog can use to maintain lean body mass will help keep him lean and healthy. You can still overfeed these foods, so if your dog is gaining weight, make sure to reduce the amount that you are feeding.

There is a myth that high protein causes allergies. This is absolutely not true. Proteins themselves are the components of foods that pets may be allergic to. If a pet has a mild allergy to a particular ingredient, it would make sense that the allergy symptoms would become worse when the pet is exposed to higher levels of this ingredient. It is not the protein itself that is the problem, but the specific type of protein."
"Taste of the Wild is an all-life stages food that is formulated to meet pet’s nutritional needs throughout all stages of life, from puppy to senior years. Taste of the Wild lets owners satisfy their dog's instinctual cravings for those foods the dog could find in the wild! It’s made with real roasted meats and supplemented with fruits and vegetables, which means superior taste sensation, highly digestible energy and natural antioxidants to support a healthy immune system and overall health."
I have included some pictures of our Schipperke eating the samples we were sent. She really seems to enjoy the food. If you are concerned about what your dog is eating Taste of the Wild is a company you should look into. They do have a locator system so you can find a dealer in your area who carries Taste of the Wild. In our area Tractor Supply and some of the local feed stores carry Taste of the Wild. They do carry cat food also. I have enjoyed sharing Taste of the Wild with my neighbors At the Fence. Taste of the Wild has put together a special give=away pack for the winner of this giveaway. It includes:3 samples of the canned dog food, 3 samples of dry dog food, a sample of Bright Bites, 1 Bright Bites Collar, and a copy of the book "101 Dog Tricks: Step by Step activities to engage, challenge, and bond with your dog" and last, but not least a $30 GC for DoggieFood.com CLOSED
Mandatory Entry:Visit Taste of the Wild and come back and leave a comment telling me why you would like to try their product. You must do this before you can enter any other way. You do not have to be a blogger to enter. Be sure to leave a valid email in your comment so I can contact you should you win. This giveaway will end 5/2 at 11:59 pm CST. I will use random.org to choose a winner, who will then be contacted by email. The winner will have 48 hours to respond.
