Sponsor Shout Out #2


Today we'd like to thank the rest of our radical sponsors!
They're a great group of folks, and they're blogs/products are a huge source of inspiration me and Kevin.
We invite you to give them a visit if you see something that tickles your fancy too!

First up- Stanley from Disc Hangers!



If you want to display pretty plates on your walls, Stanley is the man to see about hanging them in style! I got a whole bunch of them last year, and couldn't wait to hang up the plates I had been collecting...





Disc Hangers are so easy to use, and are completely "invisible", so they don't take away from the things you want to display. Awesome!

PS- They are also 100% safe to use on antique and collectible plates as well! Too cool!

Lisa Leonard from Lisa Leonard Designs



Lisa creates beautiful, simple, meaningful pieces that can be worn with jeans or your little black dress. Her custom jewelry can be hand-stamped with your kids’ names or a special phrase or verse. These are two of my favorites pieces:


(Sweetheart Tree Necklace)


(From Up Here Necklace)

Lisa also makes awesome pieces for men...



Can't you just see one of these with "My Wife Rocks" or "I Love My Wife" on it? :-)

Dee from Red Letter Words

Dee's faith-inspired art is both beautiful and meaningful. You'll find everything from canvases, to prints, to greeting cards at Red Letter Words.




I love this cheerful, new piece she recently added to her gallery...




Such a fun and friendly reminder!

Lori from White Flower Farmhouse



Lori believes that simple, country style should be inspired not expensive. So she scours estates, farmhouses, barns and shipyards for antique relics and cast off gems that reflect her signature simple, country aesthetic.

Lori helped us deck out our mantle this past Christmas with a bunch of treaures from her shop...



And I'm still lovin' these vintage movie theater marquee letters I bought from her last year...



I also got a soap-on-a-rope from her recently, and can't wait to use it as an accessory in our guest bathroom!



If you've never visited White Flower Farmhouse, and plan on heading over there today, I must warn you- you are going to want to buy every. single. thing. :-)

Kristi from Just Simply Southern



Kristi is a stay-at-home Mom, living in South Texas, who loves all things decorating and design. She creates these delightful distressed frames, complete with magnetic button for displaying your most treasured pics...




She sells them in her Etsy shop, which you can find HERE!

Kat from EngLady



Kat beautiful and versatile pieces can be worn at the office, or at an elegant affair. Each piece is crafted of quality metals and hand-selected stones. She designs jewelry as a creative and joyful escape and hopes to impart some of that bliss to those who wear her pieces as well. Here are some of my favorites...





But this one, I got from her last month, is my ultimate fav! (Thanks again Kat!)

Sarah from A Beach Cottage



Sarah blogs about fixing up and decorating her wonderful old cottage by the sea. She's all about low-dough decorating, and her motto is: "if it doesn't move, paint it white"! You will love her blog and hearing how she describes her casual lifestyle by the sea.



If you haven't been there already, you must swing by her place today, and don't forget to check out the rest of her AWESOME before and afters while you're there!

In other news, we picked up a great new...well, actually old, super inexpensive mirror for the guest bathroom this past week. Here's a sneak peek...



It cleaned up beautifully, and I can't wait to shoot some updated shots of the room with it hanging in place!

And we also brought home something else I'm really excited about too...



Looking forward to blogging about this great old guy next week! :-)

Layla,

I have visited quite a few of your sponsors this week. My UPS man is going to have a sore back!

Looking forward to seeing your newest additions take their place in The Lettered Cottage!

Can't wait to see what you come with for the old dresser! I am sure it will be beautiful.
I have a question for you....totally unrelated to your post. I am wanting to purchase interior design software for manipulating digital photos for redesigning rooms. What kind of software do you use?
Have a blessed Sunday:)
