#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
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

It comes with excellent instructions that allow a quick set up. Continue reading

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 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 tent is a lot of fun. You can set it up in the backyard for the kids to play in, use it on your camping trips or even to change in at the beach for the day. It is also fun to set up inside the house for the kids to have their own “room” when they come visiting grandma or if they want a neat playroom for the day. Continue reading

Each edition in the Dinosaur series follows the award-winning Zoobooks approach: combining spectacular scientifically-correct illustrations and vibrant photos.

I am actually very impressed with these magazines and my homeschooled grandchildren will have a blast learning about dinosaurs from these colorful, well written magazines.
There are poems and stories that are fun and interesting. The pictures are very realistic and engaging. A plethora of scientific information adding fact to fictional stories bring the dinosaur era alive for young aspiring minds. Continue reading
Just right for taking a walk with my dog in the park, I can carry his treats and some of my things. It is well sewn. Color: Black
I was looking for a way to take my things with me when I walked the dog in the park without having to either stuff it in my pockets and risk it falling out or getting stuck using my large purse and having to drag that around with me with only one hand left to try to hang on to the dog’s leash.
This mini backpack is just perfect for what I needed and I can adjust it so if the dog has lots of energy like at the beginning of the walk, I can wear it across the body so it stays put.
After my dog has run some of his energy out, I can move the mini backpack so it is over one shoulder.
There is plenty of room in this mini backpack for my keys, wallet, phone, book, chapstick, dog treats, comb, and headscarf.
It’s not quite big enough for a water bottle, and the front pocket could have held a little more if there weren’t tucks in the fabric on either side of the bottom, but the backpack is very well sewn and the zippers slide easily.
The reason I chose this brand is because I purchased another backpack from them and was very happy with the quality.
I have purchased other backpacks and they were made out of thin mesh material that fell apart when I tried to clean them, but the backpack I bought from this company held up very well and I can clean them, too.
This is a must for everyone’s emergency preparedness kit. It is well made, 2 power sources and bright.
This is a very strong, sturdy, BRIGHT tactical flashlight. With all the storms and flooding in Texas, I figured we better get our self-reliance situation taken care of so this flashlight is now in our emergency preparedness kit.
It comes in a green water resistant case with a snap down lid for easy access and a cord for easy access to grab and go.
The flashlight has two power sources – the larger rechargeable battery that comes with it and it also takes 3 triple A batteries, that I have in it now. Continue reading
These mugs are so adorable that I just couldn’t wait for them to get here. Drink hot chocolate or herbal tea out of them? Yes, I guess I could have because they are so well made and their handles just the right size to hold comfortably, but that is not why I got them. I needed something to put a smile on my face when I was stuck pounding the keyboard at the office. These mugs are just the ticket. I needed a sturdy holder or two for my desk for all the markers, pens, pencils, clips, rulers and accessories I have all over the desk, so I am now using these darling elephant mugs to keep my space tidy, efficient and fun. The mugs are stable and don’t tip over and are the best idea for keeping my desk uncluttered and more efficient. Continue reading

Comfortable secure fit, excellent sound – a great value for the money.
These are exceptional headphones with quality sound and comfortable fit. They are unique in that you can turn them on and off by touching them together – so convenient. The storage case they come in is well designed and fits in my pocket without taking up too much room. I love the pockets inside the case so when I open it the headphones just don’t fall out, they are secured and easily accessible.
I will say this – if you try them out and don’t like the fit or think the sound just isn’t precise enough…change the tips for a smaller size. That happened to me. I simply tried them out with the tips that came with them on it and was sad because they wouldn’t stay in and the sound seemed mediocre. After double checking the box, I found the little zip lock package with the extra tips in them and quickly changed them out so the smallest size was on the headphones. WOW! What a difference. The smaller tips allowed the headphones to go further into my ear and the sound became high quality with great bass and clear treble. I can actually shake my head and the headphones stay in. I love them! Continue reading
