Plow and Hearth Review and Giveaway!

     I'm really kind of bummed about winter coming.  It seems like here in the Northeast, it never stays warm for long enough.  We barely get water warm enough to swim in when the air gets too cold to even want to swim.  Winter means the end of camping season, fishing season, hiking season, and pretty much anything fun that you could do outside.  Of course you can still go snowshoeing and we probably will, also ice skating and even ice fishing if you are into the idea of sitting over a hole in the ice.  But winter means the end of flowers and frogs, butterflies and most of your pretty song birds.  It makes me sad.
     But luckily for us, next year the song birds will have one more place to call home around here because next year, we will have this outside:
     It's a Guest Cottage Birdhouse from Plow & Hearth.  It's a birdhouse that is a recreation of a cottage originally built for Marie Antoinette and her friends to use as playhouses in the village of Versailles.  It is made of red cedar and has a one nest box.  The inside has plexiglass over the windows to protect the birds and has an easy access panel in the back should you need to get into the birdhouse.
     The birdhouse is 7-1/2"W x 6"D x 8-1/2"H which I think is an excellent size.  It isn't too big or very small.  The shingles are scattered and not perfectly even, which gives it a nice character.  It also has a very pretty marble look to the sides of the building.  Plow & Hearth also offers a matching bird feeder as well.
     The birdhouse has a stone chimney which has small polished rocks of varying colors and a grey mortar of some sort.  It is topped off with a decorative white wooden cap.  The house seems to be very rugged and durable.
     Plow & Hearth has much much more than birdhouses.  They have a great selection of outdoor solar lighting for instance.  You can find anything from lights to light up your Family name sign to lights for your steps and walkways.  Plow & Hearth also has many things in the way of outdoor and indoor decor.  In fact, it has pretty much anything you want for your home, inside or out.  One of my personal favorites is this cute turtle table:
     And for those of us strapped on cash this holiday season, there is a whole section of gifts under $25.  I love when websites make budget shopping easy.  When you go the the Gifts Under $25 page, you are given categories for all budget types without even having to choose a main category first.  I love Plow & Hearth for that.
     Plow & Hearth will definitely be on my shopping list next year for Christmas, especially now that
 that I've seen the quality of their products first hand.  And now you can too, because Plow & Hearth was kind enough to offer one of my readers a $50 GC to their site!  Of course you know the drill by now, just use the Rafflecopter below and god luck!  Contest ends the day after Christmas :)
