Manchester Wood Solid Wood Furniture

Solid Wood Affordable Furniture

My husband and I are pretty easy when it comes to choosing furniture and such. Often times a husband a wife have differing opinions. We both like love, wood. Solid wood furniture. It’s everywhere in our home. To us, it just makes a home feel “homey”, and cozy.

While browsing their site, I can easily find a spot in our home for the Slate Top Console Table.

The Manchester Wood website is easy to navigate, and even easier to fall in love with.

I have wanted a Tall Double Jelly Cabinet for quite some time, maybe I can now sweet talk my husband into purchasing one for me for Christmas.

Choice of 2 finishes, myself … I like the lighter finish.

Affordable, eco friendly, solid wood, designed, American Made, and produced with quality!

You can read more on the Manchester Wood Craftmanship.

We pay attention to every detail during the manufacturing of each item. Inspections are performed throughout all processes. Our hardwood is hand selected by using the latest equipment to obtain the needed cuts while maintaining our concern for the environment and utilizing the most material we can from each board. We use solid wood in our construction methods to allow the product to last for generations.

I love that Manchester Wood produces solid wood furniture, and don’t cut corners on quality. They build their furniture to last generations. (not years) I’m proud to purchase furniture that I can later pass down to my children, and to their children, and so on! Go on over, and take a peek at this Shaker Entertainment Console that I would love to add to our living room.

Manchester Wood offers free shipping on all orders!

Removeez Get Stuff Off Your Skin – Review & Giveaway Black Friday Event Ends 11/29/2009 @ 11 am est.


This is a very new product I found and it has impressed me.  I don’t now about you and your family but our family has a lot of things that get stuck on our skin.  From my husband using plumbing grease or working on his precious antique Jeep to my kids and temporary tattoos, markers, and/or sticky residue from bandages.

Many times I use hard nail polish removers or alcohol to remove those stubborn stains.  The Removeez website says that Removeez easily takes off:

  • Temporary tattoos
  • Bandages
  • Tape of all kinds
  • Tar
  • Sap
  • Ink/Ballpoint Pen
  • Permanent Markers
  • Residue adhesive
  • Wax used by beauticians
  • Auto grease
  • Door Grease
  • Shoe Polish
  • Shoe Glue
  • Color Copy in /Personal printer ink
  • Paint
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Tile and carpet adhesive
  • and the list keeps going

This great product comes in different scents as well:

  • Lavender/Orange
  • Eucalyptus/Orange
  • Coconut/Orange
  • Clove/Orange

With all these nicely scented options and with all my family gets in to I had to give it a try.  Abby sent me a Removeez Sample And Demo Kit with Lavender/Orange and Eucalyptus/Orange bottles.

I took a sharpie and wrote on myself and applied the product as directed  and with a bit of massaging.  It didn’t all come off but most of it did so I reapplied a bit and it all came off this time.

It was a great time to see how it worked on adhesive as well.  My husband gave blood yesterday so I worked it around the tape and came off much easier and the residue came right off.

Win It!

Removeez is offering one NetworkingWitches their own Removeez.

Mandatory Entry:

Go on over to the Removeez and tell us what your favorite scent is and what you learned.

Brazilets Wear Your Wishes! Review

 

According to Live Brazilian’s website “A 200 year-old tradition from mystical Bahia, Brazil, “Brazilets” are worn through out Latin America and provide a spirtual significance for all who wear them.  Wrap Brazilets around your wrist and tie three knots making a wish for each knot.  When your Brazilets naturally break down and fall off, it is believe that your three wishes will come true.

When I received these Brazilets they were not what I was expceting at all.  I guess I thought they would be more paperish but they are ribbon bracelets wth a tag that you list your 3 wishes on, and tie it around your wrist.

Now this is cool on many stand points.  I always try to get unique gifts that continue to give year around for Christmas.  I also like to wrap uniquely so that the package is as good as the gift.

I will be passing a few of these Brazilets on as package bows and to help bring attention to Brazilets.com.  Brazilets are being sold to help the Amazon Rainforest and to plat a billion trees.  One dollar.  One Tree.  One Plant.

The Ultimate Cloth

 

Guaranteed up to 5 years. Using ONLY water, and The Ultimate Cloth, it will never scratch, streak, or spot any surface.

Ok, let’s try this Ultimate Cloth, and see just what it can do. I’m going to start with the laptop screen, it always needs cleaned. My great nephew often walks up and pokes his finger at whatever is on the screen. Leaves lovely smears, and smudges.

As I opened this up, I had doubts. It looks much like a paper towel but much larger, and has a sort of leathery feel. It’s an exclusive MiraFiber tm Technology. Now, as I said I had my doubts. So I hit the dirtiest mirrors, tv screens, computer screens, and a stainless steel sink, that has a stain of some kind.

I would compare this to a certain Mr. Soandso cleaning product that does really well erasing dirt.

The Ultimate Cloth is a very small, family owned company dedicated to offering the very best in products that save money, as well as the environment. They do not offer The Ultimate Cloth in stores. Every Ultimate Cloth with a five (5) year guarantee, and challenge users to find new and innovative ways to use the cloth. Anyone who has questions about the Ultimate Cloth, would like to sings its praises or doesn’t think the cloth is working the way it should, can to talk to Ryan, directly. While he’s big on titles, he had to take one when the company was formed. President.

Money saving tip from an Ultimate Cloth user:  If you have a single-use, flat head mop (such as Swiffer), use the machine washable Ultimate Cloth instead of the expensive, disposable, replacement pads.

My husband and I did not think this Ultimate Cloth was going to be able to clean mirrors, or glass without any cleaners, and leave it looking clean, and streak free while using nothing other than water. Yet it did! The Ultimate cloth is machine washable, air dry only. The Ultimate Cloth has been lab tested to remove 96% of bacteria, without the use of chemicals.  And, can cut 50% off your cleaning time. Usually to clean the 2 large mirrors, 2 tv screens, 2 computer screens, and the kitchen sink it takes me an easy 20 minutes or so. It took me right around 8 minutes using The Ultimate Cloth. On an ordinary day, my guess is that it’ll go faster than the 8 minutes as I won’t be watching it dry, looking for any streaks or smudges. Which is why I dread cleaning the mirrors, and screens! They are always already smudged, and sometimes it’s near difficult to get them  back to a pretty shiny mirror again.

I do recommend The Ultimate Cloth, I will use it again, and again, and again. And I do plan on purchasing more of these for in our vehicles, as well as one for husband for his motorcycle. Since The Ultimate Cloth is not available in stores you can purchase via snail mail, or direct from their website.

Thank you to The Ultimate Cloth for giving me this review opportunity! I’m proud to have tried, and tested a product that’s backed by a 5 year guarantee!

Good Health Natural Products – Snacks Giveaway – Black Friday Event Ends 11/28/09 @ 10 Pm Est

Everyone needs snacks for the holidays organic or not.  It’s a need for the season with parties and gatherings.  Why not “Health It Up” with something that is better for you?  I received a box of snacks from Good Health Natural Products.

Losing taste by going organic?  Not with Good Health Natural Products.  Quite honestly I seriously don’t think I’ll go back to regular junk.  The cost of these snacks are the same as all the others on the shelves.

I was convinced that I didn’t like the Polenta Corn Chip.  I had to do my duty *sigh* so I popped a couple in my mouth and HEY they weren’t that bad.   In fact they were good.  Really good.  They come in 4 great flavors too. 

The Humbles, hummus chips are my favorite.  These chips are addictive my family ate them kind of like crackers with soup and sandwiches.  The best I can describe these is that they are light and airy with lots of flavor.

Veggie Stix come in Hot or Regular.  Hot is nice and spicy and a happy medium heat.  These were my kids favorite and  my youngest wants to take them to his class for snack day.  

The Olive Oil and Avocado Oil Chips are really good and taste exactly like regular kettle chips.  They have a nice crunch and go great with a sandwich or dip.

Lastly is the popcorn.  It is really good and is a great treat with hot chocolate or while you are watching  great holiday movies curled up with the family.

Win It!

Good Health Natural Products is generously giving one Networking Witches reader an assortment of their snacks.

Mandatory Entry:

Go to the Good Health Natural Products website and look at their great snacks and tell me what snacks you like and pick carefully because you may get those snacks.

ECOBAGS® The Original Reusable Bag Company – Review

ECOBAGS® sent me a  String Bag.  These are unique compared to other eco bags on the market.  Mine came in Lime Green (one of my favorite colors).  If Lime Green isn’t for you, these come in all different colors, different handle styles, and they come in a Grab Bag (5 bags of different colors). 

I have used my bags for two different activities.  The first time I used it to put apples in that we were picking from a neighbor’s tree down the road.  The second time for my gym clothes, which always need airing.  I like that the bag holds up to 40 pounds and I wasn’t afraid at any time that it wouldn’t hold the apples.  When I used it for my gym clothes it was a handy way to throw it in the car and it received a lot of publicity when I walked into the gym. 

ECOBAGS® is a member of Fair Trade, Organic Trade Assoc, Women’s Business Enterprise and more.  The bag is machine washable and drip dry and is 100% natural cotton.  Save more than the evironment with these great bags.   ECOBAGS® is having a 50% off sale and you can purchase the Classic String Bag for as low as $2.99.

If you want to link up with ECOBAGS® here are some of the ways:

Bazura Bag Ends 12/03/09

myearth360logo

My daughter has fallen in love with the Bazura Bag that Lynn from MyEarth360.com sent us for review. If you have read much of my posting, you’ll know that I won’t rush my reviews. At all. I feel that each of our sponsors deserve our time, our thoughts, and our personal experience with their product(s).

Now my daughter has, ever so kindly helped me with this review, since I told her to not rush me. Oh boy.

She loves that the Bazura Sac is made out of used milk cartons. You know, those non bio degradable foil ones that many places serve with lunch. She loves just the way it’s made. On the inside it has a slip pocket, and appears foil, but has a nice plastic covering for easy cleaning. It’s perfect to use to carry lunch to school. Think Eco Mom! Lets not leave out that the empty doy packs, are from a “chocolate drink”.  Yes, that was a big plus in her book. Now that is a lesson of it’s own for me, I didn’t know that those annoying, empty packets have a name, doy.

The handles are the perfect size and fit for tweens! Ours is lined with green trim, and is very similar to the one pictured here with red trim. With a full zip closure.

My tween daughter is with me as I type this, and she is very impressed with how it stands alone. 🙂 She has her lunch already planned for school. I can very well see us purchasing more items made this way.

BazuraSac

Oh, I didn’t tell you how it was made yet, did I? Well, let’s get right to it.

Bazura bags are made in the Philippines by a women’s cooperative, using the juice (or in our case milk) containers. The containers as we know are not biodegradable, they clutter landfills, fields, and the streets of the Philippines.

As I mentioned above these containers are called “doys”. Recycling these doys that are obviously unwanted waste, is one way in helping to clean up our enviroment.

Purchasing one of these bags is a GREAT way to support fair trade, and and count for Our Earth.

If you aren’t into the lunch bags, then visit My360.com inthe art-school-business supplies. Which include, but certainly not limited to Laptop Bags, and Briefcases.

ecoTIP When buying recycled paper,choose post-consumer recycled (PCW). It’s your greenest option.

Check out their site for more Eco Friendly, Earth Saving Tips, including on how to get 10% back for your school.
