There are 3 things that you need to know about Purrfect Play
1.) My NON-PLAYING pets LOVE the toys they received
2.) Their toys are ORGANIC, DYE FREE, & FAIR TRADE
3.) The customer service is the BESTREVIEW:
These are by far the BEST pet toys ever!!! Seriously. I won a contest that landed me a wool ball for my pooch Santos. To be real honest, when I learned that I had won, I wasn't real excited - I mean my dog or cat had never been too big on pet toys. So, I figured that the ball would just lay around.
When I received that package from Purrfect Play, I was shocked that she had included a couple sizes of balls, not knowing what size dog I had. Also, she included a nice catnip mouse - just in case I had a cat. Those special gestures & attention to detail were my first impression of Purrfect Play.
Right out of the box, I noticed that these toys were well made & they felt like healthy raw materials.
I introduced the toys to my pets right away.
Santos ran off with the ball. This turned into a fun game of "I'm gonna get your ball". I'd try to grab it from her she'd try to keep it and once I got it I'd throw it and we'd go at it again. No big deal you say? I'd been trying to get her to play and fetch for years. Santos is now in the gallery of happy customers :)) She's in the top row - far right - check her out!
By the time I checked on the cat, he was real silly on catnip & rolling around with the mouse. No big deal you say? I've not seen him like that in at least five years.
I'm not sure exactly what the secret is to these toys. I do know that every Christmas I buy them both toys and snacks for their stockings. I usually buy them good quality pet shop toys. We have never found anything very impressive. I thought these would be the same.
The "she" I've been referring to is Pam from Purrfect Play. Pam has been wonderful to work with. One of those good people experiences. I am so totally impressed with her products and service, that I will stick with her & recommend Perrfect Play whenever there is a need for pet items. I love her concern with keeping our pets chemical free & her commitment to looking into that a bit deeper than most. And even better, she is a fellow Indiana girl!
Pam from Purrfect Play is offering one reader a toy to accommodate either a cat or dog. We decided to go with the long theme, so for a cat you could win a Organic Cotton and Catnip Snake which is a fun tube of 4 1/2 ounces of fresh certified organic catnip. My Brutus has the snake & he loves it. It's a lot of catnip, so he gets a little nutty!
And if you have a canine friend an Organic Cotton Tug Toy would be good fun & good for teeth and gums :))

We try to put the kids to bed early in the evening. Then we either watch a tv show that we've recorded or talk all while cuddling under a blanket on the couch. That really helps. We also like to take showers or baths together.It'll be better soon when my husband finishes redoing the downstairs bedroom. Right now our son is in our bedroom and the other kids are next door in the other bedroom.
When I contacted her with the good news, she was up sick with a cold. She said the excitement helped her feel better. I know how that is, I'm glad it helped for a minute - get well so you can enjoy the kit!!
Everyone remember all of your intimate gifts, romantic gifts, sensual products needs are found at Eden Fantasys!

Stop by for a great Birthday Party! We all love a good birthday bash right? Vanessa has over $1200 worth of Birthday gifts that she's giving her readers!! Head over to I Never Grew Up and enter to win. Make sure to tell her Happy Birthday !!
With Dominic being British, as you can imagine, we drink lots of tea in our home. I serve a traditional English tea like I would a coffee, with cream & sugar. Herbal teas with lemon & honey -
unless it's chai -then it's cream & sugar again.
It's a very nice, calming tradition that they have across the pond- to come in from shopping, or a hard day at work- they virtually make time stand still just long enough to have a cup of tea, or two. No putting up groceries, no phone calls, no nothing- just putting on the kettle for tea. I found it such a valuble stress releaver while I was there. Something we Americans don't do - just stop and sit with a warm cup of tea, letting the world carry on until we are done.
So when I was lucky enough to try Teaposy for my self, I and everyone in my home were thrilled. When the package arrived, I was in the middle of mopping the floors. I stopped in good British fashion, put on the kettle, took out some Walker's biscuits & we had tea proper.
The tea is amazing to watch! It's a piece of art and I felt truly inspired watching it bloom. All of us gathered around the teapot to watch - it was really cool.
The flavor is mild, expectantly so being a white tea & I could taste the subtle flavor of the Calendula flower & the floral scent remained as an aftertaste.
It really is an amazing tea set to have - I will save mine for special occasions like tea with the girls. I am planning a tea party for when my grandma comes home in the summer - she'll love it!
WIN IT!!! CONTEST CLOSED

Tammy @ AutismLearningFelt is hosting a wonderful giveaway. Nordic Naturals are known for being very high, contaminate free quality supplements. Fish oils are healthy for everyone, but new research is being done on the ability for Fish oils to benefit children in the Autistic spectrum.
This excerpt is taken fron this full article at Natural News.
- Two American researchers, Louise Patrick, SLP, and Ronald M. Salik, MD, have recently reported the results of a clinical trial of the effects of a fish-oil supplement on language development and learning skills in children with autism or Asperger's syndrome1. Fish oil provides essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are critical for brain health. Children with attention deficit, autistic, and related disorders have been shown to have significantly lower levels of EFAs in their red blood cells2.
I have concerns with my youngest & have recently started him on a gluten-free diet, seeing notable improvements in behaviors. I would love to win these wonderful supplements. I think they would only further his health & maybe restore a deficiency.

*The Wonder Ball works through physics. The frequency enhanced mineral blend within the ball creates an energy field when agitated in the machine. When this energy meets with the water, the water is in it's best cleaning state. It is the water that does the cleaning. No detergent needed.Good for three plus years of use.
*Wonder Dryer Balls are simply placed in the dryer with wet clothes, turn on the dryer. Working together in balance, the balls keep your clothes separated. The nubs keep redistributing the heat; cutting drying time. Engineered for a lifetime. No fabric softeners or sheets needed.
I don't want to write a long review that no one will read. I do want to do a good job in explaining just how impressed I am with the Complete Laundry System. I am totally sold.
*My youngest is very sensitive & knowing that all washables that he comes in contact with are chem free feels so healthy.
*Even my beast of a duvet, that usually ends up with white streaks & takes four dryer cycles, has been tamed by the Complete Laundry System. No white streaks, fully dry & fluffy in 2 1/2 dryer cycles.
*Cleans clothes without the use of detergents or chemicals, thereby lessening your exposure to toxins
*Cuts cost of buying laundry detergents for three years !!!!!!
*Cuts energy cost with faster drying !!!!
*Clothes feel real clean, as one Wonder Laundry Ball user put it "I was used to having unscented sheets, but this no-scent was different,a smell that was like fresh, clean air after a thunderstorm."
It's that product - the one you're so glad you found. The one you tell everyone about & buy as gifts. I'm even going to pitch it to my favorite health foods store when I go next. I love how my laundry feels & smells. I love that it feels healthy. I love that I am doing my part to keep the environment clean. I wish I could give one to each of you :)))) I would encourage you to seriously consider investing in the Complete Laundry System - it will save you loads of moola.

I have been entering all of these amazing giveaways. Pieces crafted by people's loving hands, their art that they have put themselves into that they will wrap up in small packages and send out their treasures to fellow bloggers from all over the world. I think that is beautiful.
I was really touched by all the care that goes into this. Started by Lisa Swifka to connect bloggers who might not have the chance otherwise. Her efforts have really paid off with over 850 participants!
Starting to feel guilty for entering but having nothing to give, I determined that next year I am going to be prepared to be a part of this caravan. But , after seeing many surprise packages being offered, I decided that there is really nothing stopping me from participating this year. I am up for the adventure of putting together a fun surprise package! It will be fun! I will do it up good, I promise :))
This is open to EVERYONE. Just comment below. That's it!
I am a new blogger & I look forward to meeting new faces :)) Make sure you leave a contact email!!! Also, head back over to the OWOH hub and mingle :))
Comments will close at 11:59 PM Feb. 11th. I will draw a winner using random.org and will email the winner on Feb. 12th. Good Luck & Happy Entering!
