day 292 : kindness carousel {week 27}

another round of awesome things from the internet!

1) you know how important 'made in the usa' is to me, right? in southern mn, we have a woolen mill that has been around since 1865! last year, blake and i went down to the factory and each purchased a scarf {i have this one}. they are so warm & such incredible quality. this throw is on my wish-list! {they ship worldwide and all of their items would make awesome holiday gifts}

2) speaking of blankets ; this tutorial is on my winter bucket list! {and lets be honest ; you can never have enough blankets during the minnesota winters}

3) this book is so great! its like a modern version of 'alexander & the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.'

4) YES! ---> 6 ways to give generously while on a budget

5) biz post ---> how to get your blog & shop ready for the holidays

6) your purchase of these {bamboo!}notecards donate 100% of profits to saving the bees

7) local folks! drop off any new, unwrapped toy {either at the history center or other locations around the city} & receive a free admission to the history center! {we have been members for 3+ years & the center is one of the coolest places in the cities} {details of the toy drive here}

8) a local apple orchard donated over 12,000 POUNDS of apples to local food shelves. {this makes my heart SO happy!} // story is here


  1. I had to double check I knew which blanket company you were talking about, I'm surprised it isn't the minneapolis map throw that you would want!

    1. I checked out their website and just bought a scarf! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love those cards! They look amazing! :)

  3. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
