A few months ago, I discovered a wonderful company, Dayspring and instantly fell in love with their inspirational home decor and gifts! So when I was given the opportunity to review a few items from their new Redeemed collection, I jumped at the chance!
I have to say that the Redeemed collection is by far my favorite collection. Not only are the products absolutely gorgeous, but the meaning behind them is just perfect, especially at this time of year! The label attached to each items states it better than I ever could,
"Life is a patchwork of the meaningful things we keep with us- memories, moments, and connections that serve as daily reminders of where we've come from and who our loving Heavenly Father says we are in Jesus. The Redeemed Collection celebrates the way God, in His generous grace, sews together every beautiful bit of our lives to form one masterpiece creation after another.
In all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28"
What a beautiful message!! I have always been a firm believer that everything that happens in our life-the good, the bad and the ugly- are part of God's plans for us and all help to shape us into the people we are meant to be, and I think that's just what the Redeemed message is all about- the patchwork of memories. Other verses in the collection share this sentiment as well, "He has made everything beautiful in its time."-Ecclesiastes 3:11 and , "From the fullness of His grace we have received one blessings after another."- John 1:16. Of course, the products reflect this message perfectly as well with their patchwork styles and the vintage feel. Perhaps it is my love of quilts and all things vintage that attracted me to this collection!!
Okay, onto my opinions on the individual items themselves. The two products Dayspring sent me for this review were the
The vase is absolutely stunning. It definitely has a vintage feel to it, which I love and I love the verse as well. These pictures do not to it justice! Personally, I'm still trying to decide what to do with mine- flowers, potpourri, decorative balls, a candy jar...the possibilities are endless!! The great thing about this vase is that its so simple, it could easily be worked into any type of decor!

Now, the coasters could not have come at a more perfect time! If you're already a follower, you know we just moved and are busy getting our lovely new home decorated. (If you're a new follower or visiting from Inspired Deals, you now know too!) One of our recent house purchases were new end tables. Our last set were destroyed by...you guessed it...lack of coasters!! So I had already told my husband no drinks were to be set on these new tables. A few days later I got word from Dayspring that this was one of the items I'd be reveiwing and I could not have been happier!! Not only are they absolutely gorgeous, but they perfectly matched my decor. As I mentioned above, I love quilts, so the patchwork on these really won me over! I also loved the 'Blessed Assurance' coaster...I think it is perhaps my absolute favorite, but each is lovely. And a great quality as well. To be honest, I have acquired quite the collection of items from Dayspring and am always impressed with the quality!!

|The Blessed Assurance is among my favorites!|
Did I mention I really, really fell in love with this collection? So much in fact that I couldn't stop with just these...I had to purchase the Truly Blessed Mirror and Wooden Wall Cross too. (Not to mention a lovely water bottle, though it's not pictured.) The mirror is my favorite! So far, but my wishlist is still long!
|How gorgeous is this? |

|Love the verse!|
