Now for the giveaway...the site is letting me raffle off their decorative file folders above, which I have a set of myself and their Murval Brown Patent Handbag for a total giveaway value of $44.00. In order to win, just post a comment here mentioning your favorite item from the GiveSimple site, one I didn't already feature as one of my picks. I'll then randomly select a winner on the evening of April 27th. No, you don't have to be a mom to enter, heck you can be a dude looking to give your mother or girl something nice, whatever. Good luck and please leave your email address if I don't already know how to contact you.

All of you though can receive 10% off your total purchases on the site when you enter the GiveSimple coupon code--TARAMETBLOG--good until May 7th.


  1. I just love those polka dot tea towels. I really think that tea towels are my new addiction ;-)

    Since I needed something else to covet, and I'm getting ready to travel to Ireland in November, I've got my eye on the Rings Passport Wallet.

  2. I have to say I adore the Green Italian Melamine Pottery. Its so fun and funky! I think this is my new favorite site.

  3. Ooo my fav is the pearl and rosebud necklace, as I'm searching out bridesmaid gifts currently :)

  4. I love the monogram necklace:



  5. I pretty much die and go to heaven every time i have tea forte teas...these were some of the first "high class" tea varieties I ever tried - and ever since I've had a hard time settling on average ol' basic tea at restaurants.

  6. Oh what a fun contest!

    I really like the Turquoise and flower necklace, it's so cute!

  7. Since I am getting married this summer I am feeling very nostagic and love the polka dot apron (Donna Reed for the modern girl!) But then again I love the Multi Dot Tote and Travel Accessories and Murval Summer City Totes (my future hubby thinks I already have enough bags, but when can a girl really have enough bags?!)

  8. I love the queen of fun necklace... it's adorable.

    I also LOVE those spoons you posted... I think my mom may be getting those for mothers day.

  9. This is fun!
    I love all the different funky tableware designs... I know I'm a total kitchen geek :0)

  10. WOW! Great site and best of all they deliver to CANADA!!! I love finding sites where I can actually shop for unique items. Thanks.

  11. I love the site! I like the flower handbag when you first arrive at the site, but I really love the pink/brown travel bag. I may have to buy it. Happy Mother's Day to me! :)

    Thanks, Tara! I'm going to go check out the rest of the site now...

  12. So many wonderful things, it's hard to choose a favorite. I love the crystal decanting pitcher. Hmm, may have to get one for myself.

    A few moms I know would love some of the spa items or the travel totes. I think my mom would adore the Murval Brown and Pink one. *off to buy mom's day items*

  13. I adore the Florence File Folders. I like to be organized, but it isn't always fun. Instead of staying organized, which requires devotion, I would rather sit at my computer and write romance novels. I have notes everywhere for 'what pertains to her', 'what pertains to him' and 'what pertains to the other characters.' If I had those fancy Florence File Folders I'd be more inclined to want to stay organized. I would look forward to being organized, and my romance novels might get published because I was organized! Thanks, Tara, for sharing.

  14. i love the spoons. They cheer me up and I think I could use them to feed my baby who is just now learning to eat on his own. I also love the robe since I am an insomniac and could use the comfort on cold nights.

  15. I love the fraiche handmade soaps...mmmm. great giveaway.

  16. my favorite is the tea towels and the salad servers (not sure which i like better). Love how bright and bold the colors are!
