Better Homes and Gardens Style Showcase

 I was thrilled to be able to take a few days and spend them at the Better Homes and Gardens headquarters recently.  I joined a few other bloggers to take a tour of the facility and get to preview all of the amazing items they have coming out in Walmart stores.  Y’all.  You are going to love this.  Really.  Hold onto your hats for a VERY picture heavy post.  I will try to link you to those items that are out already.  Some items will be available later this year and early next.  So keep your eyes peeled when you are loading up on groceries and more at your local Walmart store.  Don’t forget you can order online at Walmart.com anytime for an amazing selection.  I am going to be using these products right here for projects sponsored by BHG over the next year.  The pictures I am sharing below are mostly of the products.  If you want more and great behind the scenes pictures, be sure to check out my instagram feed as I tried to keep everyone up to date over there.  This post is sponsored by BHG and the links below are affiliate links.  However all opinions are my own.
