Wendell August Forge Tree Topper Review & Give-a-way ends 01/09/2011


Wow Christmas has finally come and gone already! It seems as if we wait for it for so long and then the hustle and bustle comes and goes so fast! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday! We had a very nice Christmas, the boys were SO fun to watch this year!


Grady was especially funny as his eyes got so big and his voice so sweet as he opened things. He would just get sooooo excited about each thing he opened and had to show everyone! He loves his Fisher Price Dance Star Mickey and Jace wanted a really really big remote control car so "Santa" brought him a huge remote control monster truck!


Oh my, thank goodness we will be moving soon and will have a huge yard for him to drive it around in because it is definitely too big for the house and the dog!


Well I'm so excited to be back blogging/reviewing and can't wait to tell you about a wonderful company that I recently had the opportunity to work with! I know Christmas is over (for most of us) but that doesn't mean you have to take your tree down just yet! You might want to leave it up just in case you win this beautiful tree topper from Wendell August Forge.



Wendell August Forge is America’s oldest and largest forge, producing hand-wrought ornamental metalware and elegant giftware in aluminum and other metals since 1923. The company was founded in Brockway, Pennsylvania by Wendell McMinn August, who, at age 38, was active in the coal industry. The company has definitely grown over the last 90 years to include many items like treasured Collector’s Plates and commemoratives; Christmas ornaments and gifts; trays, bowls, and vases; gifts for personalization; and jewelry – but the fabrication process has remained the same: each item is crafted by hand during a multi-step process.


Skilled artisans hand carve each design and then hand hammer each piece into aluminum and other metals; then each artist leaves his or her own mark (or signature) on each piece!


So let me tell you about the Hammered Star Tree Topper ($49) that I was sent. From the picture on their website I just knew this would be so fun to add to our Christmas decor but little did I know just how beautiful this would be in person! It is made from aluminum and focuses on the beautiful hand hammering of their craftsman.


From the packaging to the actual item I am so impressed with Wendell August! I love a good presentation and they definitely hit it dead on with this product! The box that it arrived in is just gorgeous and classy.


The box has a hammered look to it just like the topper itself and their logo is in shiny silver lettering. When you open it up the topper fits perfectly in velour foam lining, so it arrives in perfect condition! I just love everything about it!!


If you are looking for an American-made high-quality, functional gift for Christmas or any time of year you will definitely want to check out Wendell August Forge! Their products can be found at many store locations as well as online and fit within any budget!

Here are a few other gorgeous products that I think you will just love...

How fun is this Santa Pewter Ornament that retails for only $10.00! What a fun stocking stuffer or little gift this would be for someone! They have so many other ones as well and they are all around just $10!

Next I want to show you this Breast Cancer Awareness Round Heart Necklace that retails for $38. What a neat item to wear and support all breast cancer survivors!
