#dogtent #RORAIMA This is a very impressive dog tent that I can use inside or outdoors. The dog tent came well packaged in a double box and the tent, itself, has a black zipped carrying case to make it easy to take with me when I travel with my Medical Alert Service Dog.
The tent is made from a durable fabric on the bottom and walls and has breathable mesh fabric incorporated on the upper part of the tent for comfort in hot weather. There is a panel that can be placed over the tent and secured to protect my dog from rain when she is outside using the tent. The top panel also gives my dog shade when the tent is in the sun beside the pool. Continue reading

These 6 adorable wooden eggs are actually maracas for children so they can learn about rhythm.
The maracas are made from good quality wood and are smooth with no rough edges.
Each egg has been painted with a different color and theme. There is a darling ladybug, two cute eggs with adorable faces on the end, an egg with flowers and grass and a bright yellow egg with posies on it.
The maracas come in a convenient soft black drawstring bag so they are easy to take them with you to church nursery or when you are going to a homeschool group. The bag is great for storage so you can pop them into the diaper bag or your purse when you are going somewhere or even for storing in the toy trunk.
Using the maracas eggs helps children develop hand and eye coordination and the sound is pleasant – not too loud for adults to be annoying but loud enough for the children to enjoy playing with them.
I know of parents who got these for their children for easter to hide in the easter egg hunt and the children loved them. Continue reading
The spatula set is a pleasure to use. The handles are made to feel comfortable and allow a good grip when using them.
The bright red handle allows me to see it quickly in the drawer and the modern black and red with an accent of silver make them aesthetically pleasing.
These spatulas are very well made and can hold up to everyday use. They are quick to wash up in the sink with a scrubber or can be tossed in the dishwasher for convenience. They can take the heat with no problem up to 410F.
I like that they are versatile and can be used on nonstick, glass and enamel cookware. They make a great gift for those who love to cook. Continue reading
I love my new measuring set that has a comfortable angled handle on them. There is a 4 cup, 2 cups and 1 cup with liters on the left side and cups on the right side.
The cups are made of food grade plastic and wash up easily by hand or in the dishwasher.
I really love how they nest together so they take up a lot less space in the cupboard. The red markings on the side of the cups are easy to read.
These cups are great for both wet and dry measuring. You can get yourself a set here:
They make great gifts for those going off to college or newly married. These are lightweight and durable. Continue reading
These ponchos are so beautiful and very carefully hand crocheted. The colorful yarn makes these ponchos add just the right pop of color to your outfit. The first poncho has a hood that is white trimmed in hot pink to match the fringe. It is flattering and very comfortable. Continue reading
These magnets are very well made and nicely machined not to scratch. They are strong, like forcefield magnets and can hold 10 sheets of paper with just one magnet.
These are called fridge magnets but can be used for all kinds of things. In my house I use them to hold the lace drapes on my metal door in the laundry room so the drapes stay put. I also use them for doll making by gluing one inside the head of the doll and gluing another one on a pacifier that has the nipple cut off so the doll has a magnetic pacifier. I glue a round circle of felt on the magnet on the pacifier so it doesn’t hurt the dolls face.
There are other uses for these magnets. I also use them on the legs of my metal desk in my office for convenient easy to read notes. These magnets come in a plastic case, which I keep put up and out of little finger’s reach. Continue reading
This is a very nicely made diffuser that allows me to keep my office smelling wonderful with essential oils. It is very easy to use and has an auto shut off feature that is so convenient.

It comes with excellent instructions that allow a quick set up. Continue reading
Arriving from Amazon in its own carry bag for convenient portability and storage, this vehicle cover is made of a very lightweight nylon feeling material.
It appears to be stable enough for protecting my truck from the weather and environment. It is a silver reflective colored material and lightweight, though resistant to tearing and/or puncturing.
There is serged on elastic on the edges for securing and sewn in tie downs with plastic hooks. The hooks are attached with elastic to allow more adaptability in fitting the truck. Continue reading
These shredders are great because there are no nooks and crannies for meat to get stuck in so they are easy to clean up by popping them into the dishwasher.
These shredders are the best tool for reducing a roast or chicken to shreds in approx 2 minutes and they won’t warp or melt so they are always ready when you are, they even come with a lifetime warranty.
The handles are shaped so they are comfortable and can be used for as long as you need. They can also be used for other tasks, like lifting hot roasts out of the roasting pan. Continue reading
I discovered how important it is to have sink strainers after I managed to totally clog up the disposal in my sink and my husband had to take all the plumbing apart to clean out the mess. I never have to worry about that again with these sink strainers.
I have a double sink and a strainer in each sink so everything gets caught and tossed in the trash, not sent down the drain.
When the strainers get dirty or greasy, I just toss them in the dishwasher and they come out sparkling and ready to keep my sinks clean and unclogged. They never get stained either, and always look nice.
These strainers are very well made and the price is right, too. Continue reading

These spatulas are actually heat resistant up to 400 degrees, so when the phone rings and you hurry to pick it up and accidentally put the spatula down in the hot frying pan, instead of on the cupboard, your spatulas will be just fine. I also like to use them to stir the veggies up in my hot soup, they work great for that. Continue reading

Some folks use these bracelets for teething relief for babies and toddlers but I use them for relief from aches and pains, like arthritis and lower back pain from lifting too much. For more pain relief, I use more amber necklaces and bracelets. I have a friend who has heart problems that make her chest hurt and when I had her wear my amber bracelet, the pain eased off. Continue reading
This is a very good magnetic knife holder that I had planned to use in my kitchen but when it arrived, my daughter immediately claimed it and I was happy to give it to her. She is a chef and has a wonderful organized kitchen so this magnetic knife holder was perfect for her. It will keep her kitchen tidy and neat with tools quickly available to use.
This magnetic knife holder can also hold her kitchen scissors or metal spoons she works with to create the wonderful dishes she makes. It is simple for her to glance up from the cutting board and see the knife she needs and retrieve it. Continue reading
There are 3 charging cords in this set and they work well. They are white so not distracting in the office environment where bright colors are frowned upon. They charge my iPhone 6 plus quickly and are well made so they will hold up to a lot of use without breaking. It is nice to have three cables in this set so I can use one in the car, one at the office and one at home. Continue reading
