Welcome to the weekend! If you are stopping by over the weekend, we hope you'll have some time to click around. We're all about celebrating the very best of American made goods and we're just finding endless ways to show our USA love.
So some big news for USA Love List: we have joined forces with what could arguably be called (go ahead, argue with me) the most all-American of the American-made car companies, Chevrolet. Over the next few months, I'll be having fun as a member of the Chevy Girls brand ambassadors. We'll be chatting about Chevy, but also about family life in America on Twitter using the hashtag #chevygirls and on Facebook at the Philly Chevy Girls page. Please stop by and join us.
Highlights of the week…
Our Made in USA Monday fashion is going strong. Fashion editor, Jill Homiak taught us about how to conquer the spring trend of Color Blocking, and she did it using all U.S.-made products. I was especially crazy about the jewelry from Dorus Mohr and Eddera, all available on Boticca.com because that shade of deep pink is my favorite color and I do love a little bit of gold. I've caught wind of what she has prepared for us next week. If you've wondered how to wear green for St. Patrick's Day without looking like a leprechaun, you'll want to be here on Monday.
Our series on favorite things, state-by-state continued with a post about 10 Products We Love, Made in Georgia. It was written by guest contributors Stefanie Paupeck and Ashley Jeter from www.ExploreGeorgia.org, but feel free to stop by and see what we missed or add to the list.
We've had some awfully nice weather, but I've still got snow on my mind because I've got a spring skiing trip to Utah coming up. I had a long, inspiring talk with Mark Miller of M.Miller. They make absolutely lovely luxury outerwear and they go to great lengths to make their products in the USA, out of the Boston area. We featured M.Miller in a Made in USA profile story so check them out and show them some USA love.
The giveaway scoop…
This week, we have two Made in USA giveaways going on and we have a winner on another. We feel so fortunate to be able to share some of our favorite Made in America products with our readers. Big thanks to our giveaway sponsors. We tell their stories in every giveaway/review article.
We just launched a big giveaway for a fabulous Fiesta art deco pitcher in the winner's choice of 15 colors. This is the iconic pitcher seen in the Smithsonian and the Andy Warhol Museums, among others, and the signature piece of the country's most collected china. We're proud to tell the world that Fiesta is made in West Virginia. We've added nearly 100 Fiesta pieces to our hand-curated USA Love List catalog, but we're excited that one of our readers will get to pick out a pitcher in their favorite color for FREE.
The other giveaway has a few days left for entries so don't miss out. It is for a big box of eco-friendly 3-ring binders, tabs and folders from Naked Binder, made in Des Moines, Iowa. Spring cleaning? Getting organized? New resolve to go green? Check out this all-American-made company.
We announced the winner of our luxurious “Green & Clean” body and bath gift set from Dolce Mia, made in Northern California: congrats to Kelly D. We know you'll enjoy their beautiful packaging and unique fragrances.
Have a wonderful weekend…
