MEDIEVAL TIMES PARTNERS WITH THE COMMUNITY FOODBANK OF NEW JERSEY TO LAUNCH POST-HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE TO HELP RESTOCK THE PANTRIES FOR THOSE IN NEED

Medieval Times begins the New Year with a

post-holiday food drive in partnership with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey as

part of their “Chivalry In Action” program.  The food drive, which runs now through

February 3, encourages patrons to drop off non-perishable food items in one of the

collection bins located at the Lyndhurst castle.  As a thank you to those patrons who

donate food items, they will be eligible to receive a 40% discount on Medieval Times

The holiday season is typically one of giving, and food pantries and other charitable

organizations often receive generous donations in the final weeks of the year.

However, once the holidays have passed, there is often a lull in donations and that can

7 Gorgeous Rustic Home-Decor Ideas to Make Your Home Unforgettable

Always loved the look of a beautiful country home and want to recreate it? Rustic decors are always a trend in home designs because they’re simple and they make any space cozy and inviting. Natural elements such as wood and other organic textures are the center of any good rustic home design.

 

The beauty of rustic home decors is that you can easily make pieces of your own without buying or spending too much. It doesn’t matter if you live in the center of the city or in the heart of a country; you can always recreate the feel of a simple country lifestyle in your home.

 

Of course, you can always buy rustic decors for your home if you want the convenience and if you want to instantly transform your space into a little charming cottage. They’re functional too, so they’re useful for additional storage on top of being a beautiful aesthetic.

 

If you already have the tools and the know-how of using different tools for big DIY projects like home decors, you can make them yourself. Check the list below for ideas.

 

Wooden Bath Caddy

 

This is a project you’ll enjoy if you’re good at woodworking and if you have a bathtub you’re fond of using at home. You’ll be needing a reclaimed wood board, screws, drill, saw, and a waterproofer. You need to take measurements of your bathtub to cut the wood into the correct shape. It needs to be snug in order to prevent sliding.

 

Once the bath caddy is complete, make sure to paint it with a sealant to prevent water damage. You can fashion the caddy however you like by putting a slot for your wineglass or maybe a little compartment to hold little things.

 

Enjoy unwinding at the end of the day in the bath without worrying about having things wet, so put some candles, soap, or even your favorite book on it. You can look at the tutorial here.

 

Jute Twine Organizer

 

This is one of the easier DIY projects as you only need jute twine and a glue gun. To make a container, all you need to do is glue the twine together upward to make it look like a holder. You can make it in various shapes; square, rectangle, and circle are popular choices.

 

Once the twine wall is high enough, secure it by using more glue. You can make several of these and use them as organizers for decorative items or for personal items like shampoo and toilet paper.

 

Rustic Mason Jar Holders

 

Mason jars are wonderful glass jars that have a lot of uses. If your kitchen needs more storage or if you’re looking for ways to display utensils for convenience, then mason jars are great for this project. Paint the jars in earthy colors like soft, earthy brown, cream, and warm gray.

About Egg’s New Gender Neutral Collection

Egg considers it a top priority to nurture little ones so that moms and dads can be sure that their children are dressed in the softest natural fabrics, and styles to suit every child’s special and unique personality. This is why Egg is launching their brand new gender-neutral collection for babies. To offer the latest trends and provide options for everyone.

Gender-neutral clothing is the perfect answer for expecting parents and their loved ones that prefer to wait until their little one comes into the world to discover their gender. These adorable pieces offer wonderful options for parents to prepare for their precious newborn’s arrival and make ideal gifts for friends and family to celebrate this exciting time.

Gender-neutral children’s clothing has also become popular with many families that choose to allow their little one’s personality and style to develop organically -without the pressure of traditional gender roles affecting their choices and aspirations.

As recent studies have shown that rigid gender expectations can have a negative impact on children later in life, some clothing brands and toy manufacturers are moving away from traditional pinks and blues and embracing more inclusive themes and colors to inspire young minds. A variety of celebrity parents have also adopted this concept, including Pink, Adele, Angelina Jolie, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Will Smith.

Egg wants to ensure their children’s ranges offer options that include all parenting ideals, and choices to suit the taste of every unique little one.

This collection is created in the softest natural fabrics to nurture delicate baby skin. Discover their cute sets, snuggly footies, cozy snowsuits, and the warmest winter accessories -all in the purest neutral colors. Visit Egg-Baby.com to learn more!

Volunteers Set to Restore Public Lands from Coast to Coast

On September 22, 2018, volunteers are expected to turn out in droves at parks, forests, beaches, rivers, and other public lands throughout the country to celebrate the 25th annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD). Organized each year by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), National Public Lands Day promotes the connection between people and the environment by inviting everyone to get outside. With support from NPLD national corporate sponsor Toyota, eight federal agency partners, hundreds of state and local partners, and dozens of nonprofit organizations, National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort.

“Whether it’s an iconic place like Yellow Stone National Park, the soccer fields down the street, or a strip of greenspace in the middle of the city, our nation’s public lands offer limitless opportunities for recreation and relaxation,” said NEEF President Meri-Margaret Deoudes. “National Public Lands Day is the perfect opportunity to spend the day outside with friends and family, caring for and enjoying these special places.”

The theme for this year’s National Public Lands Day is restoration and resilience. On National Public Lands Day, more than 200,000 volunteers are expected to turn out for trail maintenance and planting projects, trash pick-ups, and other refurbishing activities aimed at restoring public lands and making them more resilient. The day will also feature a variety of education, health, and recreation activities—all set on the backdrop of the country’s public lands and waterways.

“Natural disasters and extreme weather, human activities, and a host of other factors wreak havoc on our public lands and threaten the health and wellbeing of the people and wildlife who depend on them,” said Deoudes, noting that in 2017, weather and climate disasters caused more than $306 billion in damages—the highest annual cost in U.S. history. “If we want to continue to enjoy all the benefits these outdoor spaces have to offer, we have to help care for, restore and work to make these special places more resilient to future threats.”
