Truly Blessed and Duly Grateful…A Review & My First Giveaway!

This summer whilst reading blogs like these, I discovered a most wonderful blog community…Incourage
Check out their story and what Incourage is all about in this lovely video!
     Incourage is sponsored by the wonderful Christian company Dayspring, and many of their writers have entire blogs sponsored by the company and are or have been a part of  Blessings Unlimited.  It is through this wonderful blog community that I learned more about becoming a Blessings consultant, and also discovered beautiful Christian decor for the home, kitchen and more.  Before I signed up for Blessings Unlimited, I came across a particular beautiful piece in their catalog…
I wanted to purchase one, but when the next catalog came out, I was sad to see it had disappeared…Then I happily found it had reappeared on the Dayspring website as part of their Thanksgiving decor!   This little gem is handmade from solid mango wood, and each caddy is uniquely finished.  It’s 6 1/2 inches wide and 5 5/8 inches tall. (And just to state the obvious – the silverware isn’t included 🙂

This past spring I got married, and I have enjoyed every minute of the process of settling into our wonderful home. I have found great joy in finding decor for our home with an eternal message, and the verse on this beautiful wooden caddy is a reminder of  blessings we are given by God…
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love,
and His wonderful deeds for mankind…
–Psalm 107:8
This beautiful caddy has a plethora of uses…Besides the obvious silverware/napkin/place settings to help set the table, there’s no limit to your creative ideas for uses to display this gorgeous (and practical – hey, it’s functional home decor! 🙂 caddy in your home.  Store your pens/pencils and office or craft supplies, put small pillar candles in each compartment for a fall tablescape…and of course my husband thinks it’s a great solution for t.v. remotes! 🙂   
The wonderful folks at Dayspring have graciously provided me with a lovely gift for a  blog reader for my
