Merle & Velma Personalized Blanket Review and Snap Tee Giveaway – ends 8/20

merlevelmalogoI hadn’t heard of Merle & Velma until recently, they have so many great personalized products that I love. They have blankets, snap tees, and pillows. Merle & Velma uses only organic fabrics, non-toxic water based dyes, and they are made right here in the USA. I LOVE supporting companies that have products made right here in our home country. I was recently contacted by them to review a personalized blanket. I was thrilled as these are SO neat!
blanket1I received “The Margot” Personalized Birth Story Keepsake Blanket for my daughter Olivia. I have never seen a blanket like this! It’s so very soft and made from 100% organic cotton. The colors of the non-toxic water based dyes are nice and bright and very easy to read. I love the different fonts being used too. It’s definitely one of kind.
blanket2I absolutely love this blanket, and I love that the image is on both sides of the blanket too. The blanket is a nice size at 30″x 34″ it’s perfect for your baby or toddler. I’m not letting my baby use it though, as I want to keep mine put up for her when she gets older. It’s such a nice keepsake to have. This blanket is available for $129.00, there are other options and fonts available too.
