Weekend Giveaway: Back 40 Life

Welcome to a Simple Kids Weekend Giveaway!  This week we are featuring Back 40 Life.

This giveaway away is now closed.

Back 40 Life

Back 40 Life is a beautiful store full of handcrafted signs and wall decals. Shop owner Jodi’s dream of Back 40 Life began as a desire for “…a slower pace that celebrated the simplicity of life and found enjoyment in the everyday.”

I can certainly relate to that!

I have fallen in love with so many of the items from Back 40 Life’s selection.  My favorite is the wall decal saying “The best things in life aren’t things.”  And, how neat is this countdown decal?

You can learn more about Jodi and Back 40 Life at the shop’s website and on their Etsy shop profile.

I’m so excited to tell you that Jodi has offered a $100 Gift Certificate to Back 40 Life for one lucky Simple Kids reader!

How To Win

One reader will win a $100 Gift Certificate to Back 40 Life.  To win, simply leave a comment on this post.
