{#GIVEAWAY Event} Vintage Edison Lights Giveaway ~ Ends 7/19

Enter to Win! Vintage Edison Lights #Giveaway ends 7/19 #vintagelight

The vintage Edison light bulb offers a romantic and eye-catching lighting option. It's perfect for use in lamps where the bulbs are visible, or use for historic restorations, museum displays, or period applications.

Each bulb illuminates with a warm yellow glow, filling any space with the utilitarian ambiance reminiscent of the original tungsten filament bulbs of the 20th century, maintaining a longer lifespan than today's typical household bulb.

My Thoughts
These are some of the most mesmerizing lights I've owned. If you are looking for a way to make a statement these are the bulbs to do it. Just add them to any fixture that the bulb is visible and you have instant WOW! The glass that these bulbs are made out of is substantially thicker than that of a regular bulb. These would look great in your sconces by the front door or beside a mirror. My Mom loved them and informed me that she has a Tiffany style hanging light that she wants me to put some in for her. I am very pleased with the quality of these well made bulbs.

Because whether the product is sold or given away for review they make a donation! How Great Is That!

My Thoughts
I'm going to give away the fact that I'm no spring chicken and let you know that after I was done washing our clothes by beating them on a rock and hanging them on a tree limb to dry - I would put the mattress protector on the crib to protect it from any accidents that would occur. Back then it also worked as an alarm to let you know when the baby made the slightest move because it crinkled loudly.

Now that we have a new generation of little ones and I am getting lots of grandchildren I was excited when I received the opportunity to try this
premium waterproof fitted mattress protector from Love My Crib as I was curious about how much things had changed. When this pad arrived I checked it out ans saw that stitching was straight and tight, the material felt strong, and I was amazed at how soft and quiet it was. I knew right away that it would make the perfect baby shower gift for the next one that is due in a few months. I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion.

Katya knows all about Stalin’s big plans; she learned of them in school. But those plans mean little to her until the secret police arrest Papa and seize their family farm. With Mama and her younger siblings, Katya is shoved into a crowded train headed for a forced labour camp in Siberia. Torn from everything she has ever known, Katya faces cold and hunger, and the ever-present threat of lost hope. As she clings to a single red stone from the fields of her homeland, she questions life. Where is Papa? Will she ever see him again? And what will become of Katya’s family?

Inspired by a true story, Red Stone explores the trauma and heart¬break suffered by many families in the Soviet Union during the 1930s when Stalin seized individual property and villainized property owners as kulaks.

{Blog Tour} Burning Doors (The Extraction List Series Book 2) by Renee N. Meland


Burning Doors
The Extraction List Series
Book 2
Renee N. Meland

Genre: Science Fiction Thriller
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Date of Publication: April 28th, 2015
ISBN: 9781680581119
ASIN: B00W7GV018
Number of pages: 164

Book Description:

Cain Foley committed his first murder before he could even drive a car…

Not that he would’ve had anywhere to drive to. When he was fifteen, America was one of the poorest countries in the world, and its’ citizens took their hatred of that fact out on each other through gangs and violence.

Children barely tall enough for carnival rides peppered the streets selling drugs (or themselves) so they could buy their next meal.

Every night on the news, Cain watched as an angelic blonde woman who lost her own child swore she’d end it…

She assaulted America’s televisions with praise for the Parental Morality Law: a set of rules that spells out exactly what it takes to be a parent in the eyes of the government, and the consequences of breaking those rules. He prayed every night that she’d come to rescue him before his father took off his belt again.

Before she could save him, Cain faced a fatal choice…

Fight back or die on the basement floor.

He chose life.

Now on the run, he finds himself being hunted by a police officer with his own special brand of torture. Before he can save even a handful of the children who have been swept up in the gang life, he must first cover up not one, but two murders. His father’s and one committed by a teenage madam who is either the love of his life, or his final undoing.

As he feels himself being pushed further and further to the edge, Cain realizes that surviving his father was just the beginning.

Available on Amazon  Kindle  Print

Excerpt:

The first time I killed someone, it was an accident. Though I guess it was the kind of accident that happens when you squeeze your hands around someone’s neck for too long, or when you shove someone who is standing too close to the edge of a building. In my case, I accidentally killed my father when I beat him to death with a pipe.
He had set me up that night, I’m sure of it. I was always careful to leave the TV volume down so I wouldn’t be caught. But when I flipped the power on that night, the news roared. The woman I wanted to see was there, giving a speech like always, but her voice came out with the force of thunder. Sweat drenched my body when I heard the door to my parents’ upstairs bedroom fly open and hit the wall. The foundation shook and so did my limbs. I sat frozen in a seated position as I heard his footsteps. All I could focus on were his shiny patent leather shoes coming toward me. Even in the middle of the night, he took the time to slip them on.
I could smell him before I even saw his feet. He constantly stunk of mouthwash and old cologne; it was some putrid mix of sandalwood and beach vacations that we would never take. He cackled as he stepped toward me, so the minty air from his breath reached me before his hand did. I felt my head hit the floor before I felt the familiar sting in my cheek.
“You’re so stupid. You really think you’ll ever leave here? Where do you think you’re going to go, huh? You need me. She hasn’t come for you and she never will!” He kicked me in the side with his foot.
My stomach clenched from the impact.
I usually kept quiet when he hit me. At most, I would agree with whatever he was saying to stop him before he did real damage.
It never worked.
No matter what I said, or didn’t say, the blows would keep coming. My mother was always conveniently upstairs, but no one can tell me she couldn’t hear the snap of his belt or the furniture rattle as he shoved me into it.
That night was different. Maybe it was watching the woman from the television, or maybe it was the way his smile stretched across his face as he struck me, I don’t know. But when he was finished and heading back upstairs, I spat towards him.
My cheeks burned as I did it. In fact, my whole body felt like it was on fire. But I’d be lying if I said I wished I could take it back. Even when he turned, eyes wide when he noticed the wad of saliva glistening on the concrete floor, I didn’t regret it one bit.
I may have even cracked a smile.

Excerpt
Frost set the book aside with casual grace, then prowled toward me, his gloved hands clasped at his back. The quiet thud of his footsteps matched the pensive rhythm of the ticking clock, amping my fear. Despite his cool demeanor, I was sure the man had his temper on a short tether. That’s why I didn’t look above his neck for fear of seeing that anger twisting his face, or worse, blazing in his eyes. Silky chest hair peeked from beneath his T-shirt. And he seemed dark and dangerous in those faded jeans. The soft denim hugged his muscular thighs while loosely cupping the masculine bulge between them, the bulge my body was all too familiar with. Down low, my sex clenched in remembrance as he made his approach. “Now that you mention it,” he mused in the gentlest of tones, “needles are a tad frightening.” He dipped his head, forcing me to look at him. “Tongue depressors are even worse, but you should be especially wary of thermometers. One can never be quite sure where they’ve been.” “Really, Dr. Frost. Ever since….” My gaze followed him until he disappeared behind me. “Go on,” came the soft voice at my back. I swallowed. “E-ever since I was a child I’ve been afraid of thermometers—I mean needles!” Frost reappeared on my right side. One of his brows rose a fraction. “You know, if you’re going to lie to my face, at least do it better. On second thought, just leave. I have no patience for nonsense today.” “But I’m not lying.” Yeah, I was. He slammed to a stop in front of me, his expression a complexity of shadows. “You must believe I’m a fool.” “I don’t.” “Yes, you do.” “No, really, I.…” Enough. How about some brutal honesty?” Now his tone was menacing and sharp. “You think I couldn’t read your face? That I wouldn’t recognize mistrust and contempt? Or fear? Especially in someone I’ve—” He inhaled sharply through his nose and looked away. “Someone like you,” he finished, returning his gaze to mine.
