I am so excited to tell you about the sponsor for my giveaway!  I got a chance to check out Wind & Weather, a store that began in 1976, with a passion for weather.  They have since expanded, and while they are a world-trusted supplier of weather instruments, they also carry a fantastic array of garden and home decor.  And I will tell you that their selection is absolutely unbelievable!  Once you begin looking around their site, you will not want to stop.  Picking an item to review was extremely difficult!
As you can see from the picture above, I chose the Cat Family Metal Sculpture Fence Topper, and when it arrived, I was absolutely blown away!  I knew it was going to be nice, but I had not idea just how nice.  The metal is absolutely beautiful, and sometimes I still think I am looking at real cats out there.

We have fourteen cats (at least at last count), and so this was a special, eye-catching item for our home.  It is right in the general area where our cats actually live, so it is quite fitting.
This is not cheap metal, and it will last for years to come.  I think the only problem my mom had attaching it to the fence was finding a long enough screw.  The ironic thing is that it is a mama cat with three kittens, and our mama cat just had three kittens herself!  My mom wants to check out this site for more unique garden and yard decor.  
One of my wonderful U.S. readers will win a $50 gift certificate to this site!  What a perfect time to buy something special for your yard or home.  The kids will be going back, and with the change of seasons, it is an ideal time to redecorate!  The possibilities are endless!
In order to enter the giveaway, please enter the rafflecopter below by 9:00 P.M. Pacific time on August 29.  And don’t forget to hop on to the other blogs for even more chances to win prizes.  And be sure to enter the grand prize!
