It’s here! For weeks now I’ve been teasing on my facebook about a big giveaway. Finally I’m ready to share the full prize package with you and show off some of my newest favorite handmade brands.
Spring is here and now that many of us can open the windows and let in some fresh air, it’s a great time to get your home spring-ready. You might already have some store-bought brands you love, but I wanted to share some handmade essentials and extras to add to your arsenal this year.
The natural place to get cleaning is in the kitchen. Let’s start with the basics. I’ve tried a lot of sponges and scrubbers and I’m blown away with these handmade scrubbers from Kari Creates. They are durable, large and they get the job done. And the neon red is right on trend for spring and summer.
I have a weak spot for tea towels. I have tons. When selecting prizes for this giveaway I knew we had to have this tea towel from 618 Love. I love the cheeky quote (“Experiment In Progress: Please Do Not Disturb The Dust”). Perfect for drying dishes and cute enough to hang on your stove. What’s not to love?
Lets move to sink essentials. Every kitchen sink needs a great hand soap. Sure you can just use your dish soap, but why not pamper your hands after scrubbing the stove top or planting spring sprouts. Lemon is one of the freshest smells in the world to me and this Meyer Lemon hand soap from Eucyalpto Organics is so clean and bright. And it makes my hands feel clean and healthy.
Another bonus for your kitchen sink comes from Zinnia Designs. Growing up, I remember my grandma always taking off her rings before working in the kitchen and putting them in a cute china dish by her sink. This chickadee ring bowl is just the right size to keep on a shelf or windowsill to keep your rings safe while you prep food for the grill this summer or wash fresh veggies from the garden.
And now for some fun extras to get you in the cleaning and organizing mood.
To get myself in the cleaning mood on my days off, I like to open the windows, turn on some music and put on my trusty apron. This striped apron from Meyer Textile Company is so gorgeous in person. It’s perfect for women and men. You could use it while harvesting in the garden or dusting the bookshelves.
Spring is the perfect time to get organized too. Why not dress up your canisters and jars with these cute chalkboard labels from Image Fountain Designs. They come ready to stick to any surface and are great for kitchens, playrooms and even closets. The possibilities are endless.
Spicy candles are so warm in winter and fall, but when warmer weather rolls around, I like something that smells clean. This Clean Cotton candle from Recyclights smells like clean laundry with hints of floral and citrus notes. I’ve been using it in our living room where the dogs like to hang out and watch walkers.
And don’t forget to get yourself cleaned up for summer! Lady Gatsby has offered a pair of products from her shop to help get you ready. The Cranberry body scrub is perfect to exfoliate your winter skin and get it glowing before it’s sundress weather. And the Tigerlilly Soap is so feminine and floral.
