laundry & the loveliest giveaway!

It’s no breaking news that I love a little laundry around here.

And, just as much as I love laundry,
I love it when it smells fresh and lovely.


I also love the word love.


And love-ly.


And lavender laundry soap that smells like angels are near.
And comes in darling glass apothecary bottles.
And plastic bottles that look like glass.
With the sweetest labels…

…that look lovely sitting in a windowsill
for that casual,
“I just got back from the market and just set those there for now.” decor.
(That will still be there six months later.)

I love it even more when it’s Made in the USA
and environmentally friendly.

And all started over a stove-top.


Packing peanuts were flying as I unearthed bottles and jars of
the prettiest scented laundry soap, clothespins, hand wash,
and vacuum beads that I’ve ever smelled.


I thought you just might love it all too,
so I’m happy to share The Good Home Co.
and our “Lovely Laundry Giveaway” with you.

I’ve been on a journey to find my signature home scent
from the moment we moved in.
You know,
that certain smell my little ones might come across 20 years from now
that instantly reminds them of home.


“Mmmm. This reminds me of mom’s house.”


Well, I think I’ve finally found my signature scent,
unexpectedly (because you were probably thinking Lavender!),
in Beach Days®or Summer House®.

While I loved every single scent,
Mr. Laundry is partial to Beach Days®
and my favorite is Summer House®,
which smells quite like L’Occitane’s Citrus Verbena.


(Heaven in a jar, that stuff is.)
I wear the lotion daily.


Beach Days® is the gentlest of all the scents
and smells like a little breeze of jasmine.
There are coconut notes in there also, but not like sun tan lotion.
I can’t smell coconut…my little nose goes straight to the floral.


That said, I won’t spent much time describing the scents,
because they are so subjective to each individual.


What I will tell you is…
Lavender smells EXACTLY like a bouquet of dried lavender.
It’s the truest lavender scent.

Because I like to play with my own little potions,
I even mixed a little Summer House® and Lavender®
for a beautiful lavender lemon scent.




The Good Home Co. actually has an option for custom scents
(I really want to try Rose and a few others.),
but their main scents are:


Summer House®
Beach Days®
Pure Grass®
Line Dried®


I love that the main scents come in a bunch of different products
like laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, dryer sheets, glass cleaner, sheet & clothing spray, etc.
so that I can really layer and build up the fragrance in my home.

That might be the only deal breaker with Summer House®
as it’s the only scent without a bunch of products.
Sad face.


Anyhow, I’m happy this little company found me.
And by little, I mean a homegrown and {now} national company
that was the first of it’s kind.


It’s a sponsor match made in heaven, don’t you think?
Someday, when I have my little laundry line,
I envision a custom scent made just for freckled laundry
that I can sell in my little vintage chic shop, next to bolts of fabric.


I could babble fifteen more paragraphs
about laundry and housekeeping
and things that smell pretty,
so I’m cutting myself off and getting on with the giveaway!


The folks at The Good Home Co. and I have teamed up
to give away one of my white ruffled hand bags
and their “lavender” laundry products.


I just couldn’t have a laundry soap and scent giveaway without a little laundry to go with it!

Just click the image above to enter!


The giveaway will end Sunday, June 23rd.


Also, through June 24th, use the coupon code FRECKLED
for 25% off everything in their online shop.


Thank you and good luck!


This is a sponsored giveaway that I thought you would love.
As always, all thoughts are entirely my own.

      Thank you, Sherill! I wish you could have entered too. I already liked them on facebook, so when I went to the giveaway page, it just prompted a spot to sign up for their newsletter to enter. I thought that’s all you had to do until I tested out the entry process from my husband’s facebook. So sorry! I don’t like to leave anyone out. Thanks for taking a minute a write regardless! I do have a Christmas in July giveaway planned though and I will definitely sneak some of The Good Home Co. in there! Happy 4th!

  5. Ahh Jami, I am so bummed I missed this post and the chance of the giveaway! The Good Home Company looks great though, I will definitely check out their products. I have been extremely busy getting things in line to launch Malone Street Studios. Reni and team from Bliss and Tell have been working hard, too. I’m going to send you a quick email to fill you in!
