Something to Luv: A New Gift Service

© Luv.

Luv. initiative seems like a spectacular new service. It appears that someone had to come up with a beautiful gift giving website, and they have done it. 

They are selling jewelry, houseware, ceramics, stationary, glass art, accessories, and more (when they open). "Luv. products are all hand-crafted, high quality, low environmental footprint pieces infused with love and produced by artists who are mindful about the world around them," it was stated in their newsletter. 

Luv. is like a hidden code, love: Love, Unconditionally, Veraciously, Period. 

Best of all, they donate 50% of the net profits to five select charities. They are focusing on children's charities for this round.

There are over eighty items in the upcoming collection. There will be two collections a year, and different kinds of charities will be supported with each collection. 

There is a giveaway being hosted on their website, and this is my referral link:

Whoever wins the grand prize will win a year worth of gifts, with a value of $1600. There are also other prizes being offered (including a $10 gift card for every entrant), so click the link if you're interested.

Avalon: A Heartwarming True Cat Story by Vanessa Morgan

Purr-chase me on Amazon

We hear often of dog memoirs. But how about cat memoirs? Here is one for you.

"From Amazon bestselling author Vanessa Morgan, Avalon is the heartwarming and once-in-a-lifetime love story of a girl and her neurotic Turkish Van cat." (Amazon Blurb)

This book has touched my heart before even reading it. I know Turkish Van cats are truly precious. It's like they have been bathed in sparkling, unique personality water. (Which has been lit by a torch..) Avalon seems to be no different. He is neurotic, apparently to the extreme.

This book promises to be a highlight of events, escapades, and love. Pet lovers might enjoy any animal story, but I think this is one everyone will like.

This seems like a book that should be on your TBR list, or better yet, your R. ;) I hope to read it soon.

Enjoy kitliterature? Then look at this mew cat book: Avalon: A Heartwarming True Cat Story by Vanessa Morgan.

Gmo Free, Gluten Free Grocery Gnibbles

 Image plucked from Hail Merry
Hail Merry Miracle Tart Meyer Lemon ®

This tart will satisfy your sweet tooth, and is feel-good-eating at the same time. It has a nice lemon taste, and you will have a happy few moments of this taste on your tongue. It is probably more fun to eat it all in one sitting than to save it for later.

 To see if a store near you carries them, use the store map on

But the best thing to do would be to pick up one or two at the grocery store, rather than the 12 pack on the website.  

Kinnikinnick's Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

These are really nice doughnuts, and well flavored with cinnamon. (Perhaps that is mostly sugar ;). I would buy them if you are in the mood for doughnuts, and are going to a store that stocks them. 

Perfect Peanut Butter Bar

This peanut butter bar is delicious, I think the best I've ever tasted. It is also fairly large, which makes you grateful there is more of it. I would recommend it 100% if you want a peanut butter treat, and more impressively, if you do not. 

Saturday Small Things #1

1. As mentioned in the previous post, Cricket magazine has their their current May/June issue free digitally. It's an opportunity to read professional children's literature.

2. Why not read Robert Frost's poem Nothing Gold Can Stay? (I'm running out of ideas, so I'm just giving you random assignments. You know, like how teachers assign homework).

3. If you like Connect Four, this new twist on the classicly modern game is now available:
Connect Four Game

This is not an affiliate link. But I might try to get money from you later.

4. Try your hand at penpaling (the pun is a bit foggy...) and email someone on, but don't sign up yourself, that is a bit queer.

5. The next time an ant/bug/spider is in your room, ask them politely to leave and see what happens. Try speaking in different langauges.

And share some of your Saturday Small Things below, so people can get ideas.

Cricket Magazine

                              © Cricket Magazine

Cricket Magazine is a good magazine for children's literature. The stories are well written, entertaining, and nicely illustrated. They try to keep many different genres, so everyone is happy. The Letterbox is brimming over with kids' enthusiasm for their passions and hobbies, and the charming little critters (Cricket, Ladybug, etc) are featured in comic strips throughout.

Spider magazine has the same charm, but for a younger audience (6-9). As for Cricket, it is aimed to 9-14 year olds. But age is just a label. It seems there are always some 15 and 16 year olds writing in to say they really like Cricket magazine, and they don't want to move up to the next one, Cicada, yet.

It would be really nice for kids to receive this magazine just for them in the mailbox.

Cricket is offering this years' summer issues for free digitally, on Apple Newsstand and Google Play.

Newspapers like The Youth's Companion, Golden Days for Boys and Girls, etc used to offer almost exclusively stories in their papers a hundred years ago. I like to think Cricket magazine is reviving this tradtion, of offering literary magazines to children.
