Sponsor Shout Out

Today, we'd like to send out a big thank you to 11 of our fantastic sponsors.
Our sponsors make it possible for us to continue to blog about our life and reno adventures here at TLC, so to say that we are grateful for their support is a huge understatement!


Queen Bee Designs by Amanda

Amanda creates the most beautiful stamped necklaces...

I love the one she made for me...

Amanda's personalized, hand-stamped jewelry would make great gifts for children, friends, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, teachers, tutors, sisters, brothers, Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Grandpas and everyone in between! Oh, and if you don't see a design you're looking for on her website, you can contact her at to talk with her about making you your own custom piece!


Farmhouse Wares

One of my favorite places to shop on the web- the items on will help you rediscover clean, simple, comfortable living. Their fresh, new country style has an inviting vintage feel with an eco-friendly twist.


Great Oak Circle

At Great Oak Circle, Christine shares everything she loves about design. From design trends, architecture and history, to DIY projects, handmade gifts, party ideas and recipes- you're in for a real treat each time you visit her blog!


Angela Walker Jewelry

Angela creates beautiful, limited and one-of-a-kind pieces, that are both comfortable and versatile. It is Angela's hope that whoever wears her jewelry is as inspired by wearing it as she is while creating it.


Teresa at Cherry Checkers

Teresa is a work-at-home Mom who enjoys all things fabric. She creates extraordinary window treatments and other home decor. She made several of the pillow covers we used in our room re-do in Virginia Beach!

We had the pleasure of meeting up with her in Atlanta and she is as sweet as she is talented!

If you're in need of an excellent seamstress- give Teresa a holler.
You will be so glad you did!


The Paper Cafe

The Paper Cafe offers a wonderful variety of designer paper lines, including Take Note! Designs, Three Designing Women, Whitney English, Hicks Paper Goods, Donovan Designs, Embossed Graphics, and The Paper Menu. From fun and sassy, to traditional and classy, you're sure to find just what you need for that special note, event, announcement or gift.

Kevin and I adore the custom stampers we got from The Paper Cafe!


Leen the Graphics Queen

Leen's vinyl decals are the perfect way to personalize your home. They are mess free, easy to install, and there are 42 fab colors to choose from! They can be put on walls, windows, doors, mirrors, and any flat, clean surface.

Leen uses interior grade vinyl that has a matte finish which gives them a nice, hand-painted look.

Check out Leen's blog for fun decorating ideas, color trends and new vinyl designs each week. And if you'd like to create a whole room full of words, like this...

...she can even help you with that too!


For Love or Funny

For Love or Funny is a wonderfully humorous blog written by author, Lynn Wilson. You'll find posts about parenting, kids, dogs, culinary disasters, and everything in between. Lynn also wrote a childrens book called Right Next to my Heart that is based on a poem she wrote for her children as they went off to school for the first time.

EmilyS said...

I just love those vinyl decals. I could put them everywhere! What do you think is the limit on how many decals one can have in their home before you cross the line from cute and stylish, to cheesy and overdone?

Shannon said...

Thanks, looks like I will be shopping online today :)

I purchased a necklace for my Mother in law for Christmas from Queen Bee off one of your recommendations. It couldn't have been the more perfect gift. It was beautiful in every way. Thanks

I love the necklace! Could you please tell me if that is on a 16 or 18" chain - I'm trying to decide what size to get.
