We’ve been busy living this summer. I hope you have been doing the same.

The best way to enjoy life is to be present.  And I always appreciate reminders to do just that.

Long time bestie and sponsor of Nesting Place, DaySpring wants to encourage us to live life to the full and also help us to encourage others.

Remember the lovely Life Collection?  It’s 50% off right now.

Here are a few of my favorite things:

4 piece place setting $15 with code THANKS11

What?!  This is craziness, you can use the code THANKS11 to get an additional 25% off EVERYTHING in the DaySpring store!  It’s customer appreciation time between now and August 15th.  DaySpring is coordinating their sale with the launch of their new more social media friendly website.  And we all like to be friends with social media, right?

Here are a few other deals I like:

This sweet little owl photo frame is only $4.49 PLUS you can use the code THANKS11 for an additional 25% off ~cute teacher’s gift for back to school.

Maybe you’ve been waiting for the right time to get the glass dome?  This is a great time to buy one for yourself or for a gift with the discount it would be $26.25.  Check out some more pretty home decor items here.

One more thing~if you order $50 or more, you get free shipping.  Kind of like stacking coupons only more fun because instead of toilet paper, you get dishes and pillow covers.


You know how DaySpring loves to give away embarrassing amounts of pretty, we’ll today is no different, DaySpring is giving a lucky winner from every 100 comments TWO blue platters from the life collection.  One to keep, and one to encourage someone else with.  A simple reminder of the gift of life.

Plus, one grand prize winner will receive a $100 shopping spree.


Plus, {they don’t know I’m doing this but I thought it would be fun, I hope I don’t get calculators thrown at me from Arkansas} how about if you come up with a fun deal that adds up to $50 or more {free shipping} and tweet it with the hashtag #THANKS11 and include @DaySpringCards we’ll pick one winner from there to win a pair of platters too.  So say you tweet::

Great deal @DaySpringCards bird cage card holder & Give Thanks Hurricanes $50.24 + free shipping. #THANKS11

but don’t tweet that because I’m going to, just tweet something like that with a great deal combo as long as you include #THANKS11 and @DaySpringCards and some fun deal in the tweet.


$9.75 with code THANKS11

What a fun way to encourage someone with a beautiful, meaningful gift.   Leave a comment telling us who you would give the second platter to if you win.
