I love this throw!  I ordered a throw from Cafe Press , and as you all know I like bears, so I chose one with...a bear!  It is a super soft fleece throw with a big, black, bear in the center, with forest around it.

Sallie's Jams Review

Grand Gift Guide At the Fence Review Post #58 Hello Neighbors! What a lovely day to be out At the Fence today.  We have had some really great companies participating in our Grand Gift Guide and we have many more so be sure to stay on the watch.  Next up is Sallie's Jams.    Here is a little information about Sallie's Jams... " In 2004, I returned to my roots and found myself living in the middle of a huge field with a garden-loving husband in my hometown of Cameron, SC, where farming is a mainstay. One perk of my time in corporate America was an expense account which afforded me the opportunity to experience fine dining across the country, cultivating my knowledge of unique food and flavor combinations. This interest in flavor pairings combined with my creative nature, and life in the field, led to the creation of Sallie's Greatest. Thanks to my partnership with local farmers, my specialty line of herbal fruit jams is made with the freshest

Vision Bedding Review and Giveaway

Grand Gift Guide At the Fence Post #56 Hello Neighbors! We have had some great companies so far in our Grand Gift Guide.  And I have another one... Vision Bedding!  I did a review and giveaway for them before, but they also wanted to participate in our Gift Guide so they said I could do a review with one of their Photo Blankets .  I love personalized gifts like this!  At first I couldn't decide whether I should do this for myself or for a gift for someone in my family.  I finally decided to use pictures of everyone in the family and do it as a Family Blanket!  I sent them nine photos and the color I liked (Purple of course!) and they had it made and sent it to me.  It came out really well! Didn't it come out nice?!? Here is some information from Vision Bedding... "Using the latest production technology, your favorite picture is specially dyed into a photo blanket , custom bedding, photo pillows , rugs, shower curtains, wall a

Big Book Of History Review

Gift Guide Post # Hey Neighbors! I will be including reviews from Master Books on a regular basis now, but I have some I thought would make some great gifts.  The first one is Big Book of History , a 15 ft. fold-out time-line from Creation to Modern Computers.  The contributing editors are, Laura Welch, Bodie Hodge, and Ken Ham.  The book is recommended for ages 7-12.  This is a really attractive and exciting book.  It will help spark your child's interest in history.  The Big Book of History includes facts on Biblical/Christianity, World Events, Civilizations?Empires, and Inventions/Technology.  It includes birthdates of kings, leaders, inventors, and famous men of God.  Dates of wars fought, and of course dates of inventions and discoveries. 15 feet of information! My 11 year old loves history, so this book was perfect for her, but even I found many new and interesting facts. We will be including this in our homeschool. I didn't include the funny vi

Out of the Box Faux-cabulary Review and Giveaway

Gift Guide Post # Hi Neighbors! Hope you all had a super great Thanksgiving!  We did!  Plenty of food and friends to share it with!  And I managed to stick by my diet, other than a small helping of mashed potatoes! I have worked with Out of the Box before and we always LOVE their games!  I have never been disappointed and they have done it once again with Faux-cabulary , the outrageous game of wild new words!  This one can get rather silly at times, which is perfect for our family. You start out with a "wordmeister" (just whomever you choose to go first), who reads a crazy definition out loud.  Then the remaining players use the dice they have chosen to create a word for that definition.  You have 3 die, and can spin them, rearrange them, until you come up with a word you like. Then everyone turns them in to the "wordmeister" who then decides which word best fits the definition. Forming a word. Trading a die. Forming a word! C

Cane Expressions Review and Giveaway

Grand Gift Guide At the Fence Post #53 Hello Neighbors! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day yesterday.  Today I have another great gift idea for you.  Cane Expressions. Here is some information from her website... " Rhonda's 75 year old mother was having issues with balance and with her knees. She needed to use a cane, but did not want to, as it made her feel old and it was unattractive.  A friend decided to bead her cane for her as a craft project. She took a beaded belt and glued it to the shaft of the cane. Rhonda's mom began using the cane and was delighted when people stopped her and complimented her on her beautiful cane.   "Where did you get it?" was a common question.   Rhonda's mother now uses her cane every day, as she is a fashionable woman, and her accessories are important to her.  This gave birth to our product, Cane Expressions™—interchangeable cane covers that can coordinate with outfits, activities or hobb
