Windy Willow Homestead Giveaway & Book Review

The other day, I received a lovely note from Nicole of Windy Willow Homestead. I was so excited that she picked up a copy of my book for her daughter. I was also thrilled when she reached out to do a giveaway of one of her lovely fabric coiled baskets and a set of her latest soap adventure- Old McDonalds Farm Collection. This adorable set features a rooster, hen, cow, goat, and horse. They are cold processed and the scent is a refreshing combination of fresh Georgia peaches and ripened raspberries, with a dry down of vanilla.

The basket measures approximately 4 inches tall and 10 inches across the top and feature fabric coils with burgundy and tan stars and a cream colored fabric with blue stars. This basket is topped off with curly q with a burgundy star button. It is so pretty! I wonder which one of you will win?

Nicole’s shop is filled with delightful soaps and baskets and Tilly’s Nest peeps always get 10% off their purchase using code: TILLYSNEST

I cannot say enough great things about Melissa’s book. It all started when I finally got the book in the mail. My 4 year old daughter immediately grabbed the book out of my hands and was starting to flip through the pages. She started asking all kinds of questions about the chickens in the book. That is when I noticed that there was so much great content in it. This book not only grabs kid’s attention but it is great for adults too. From learning why chickens do what they do to great recipes to try. I highly recommend this book for everyone. I know it is geared towards children but I personally think that anyone could benefit from reading it. (Oh and the pull out poster was a huge hit too!)

    Love the baskets. And as a first time chicken owner, would love the book too. My kids have been caring for the hens for about 3 months, but we have a lot to learn!
