Herringbone Fleece Faux Fur Luxe Blanket | Carver Junk Company

Chad insists on having the air conditioner set at 68 degrees in our house. I’m currently in my pajamas, wrapped in a blanket, with my laptop actually on my lap for added warmth. It feels like winter in our living room, but I’m not quite ready to make that leap, so instead I’m surfing Pinterest […]

A Puppy Kissing Booth for Valentine’s Day!

Puppy Kissing Booth | Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue | Carver Junk Company Minneapolis | Valentine's Day | Charity Donation
