I've been blogging for over 6 years now and have had many opportunities to share some amazing products and companies with you.  I've never been as excited to share a company with you as I am today, though!  I want to introduce you to The Plaid Pineapple, it's founder Denise, her purpose for her business, and tell you why I'm so happy to be working with them.  And, I'll show you the cutest gingham sneakers you ever did see in the process, too! (This post contains affiliate links.)

I met Denise over 16 years ago when we were serving at First Baptist Church in Broken Arrow, OK.  After moving away from there I was happy to reconnect with her a few years ago at Vintage Market Days, a large local antique/craft fair where she had a booth for her store set up.

Denise has a HUGE heart for women's ministry, missions and spreading the Gospel around the globe.  I'll never forget one of the first times I heard her speak when she said "Even though I might not be in the position right now to move across the globe to share the Good News of Jesus, I CAN sell a pillow!"  And as a result of that thinking, The Plaid Pineapple and her organization Everyday Ministries was born.

Scalloped Wood Bowl- (no longer available)

The Plaid Pineapple is a storefront in Broken Arrow, OK that is full of the most wonderful home decor items, as well as cute jewelry, clothing, and shoes.  But, it's not just any store.  100% of the profits from the shop are used to meet needs around the globe with the hope of sharing the Gospel as those needs are met.  They were recently featured on a local TV show, here's the video with a peek at the store and Denise sharing more about how it works:

Now, here's what I'm so excited to tell you about!  I have several pieces from TPP, and have shared them with you in the past, as well as links so that you might be able to shop those items if you were interested.  Unbeknownst to you and me, because of that shopping you did through those links, I received this note:

We are thankful for you! In the last 90 days you have sent 195 visitors to our online store.  100% of our profit goes to meeting an everyday need in order to share the gospel, and we have a year long commitment with the International Mission Board to pay the salary of a church plant pastor in Central Asia.  The sales you generated paid his salary for an entire month!

I can't tell you how heartwarming that was!  Because I shared some products with you, and you shopped, needs are being met in far away places and a pastor is able to continue doing the work of telling people the Good News of Jesus.   

Since receiving that note and realizing the impact that "just selling a pillow" can have, I've been thinking about how I can continue to be a part of this ministry.  So, I'm letting you know today that about once a month I'll be featuring The Plaid Pineapple and some items from their online store that I know you might have an interest in.  These will be affiliate links (your price is the same) so they are able to be tracked by the shop,  and I will make a commission on them.  However,  I will be donating 100% of my commission from these links back to Everyday Ministries.  I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have a tiny little part in this ministry!

You've already seen a few photos here of my Plaid Pineapple purchases, but today I wanted to tell you about the cutest ever black and white *gingham* sneakers!  

The gals at TPP just sent these to me to try out and share with you, and I think they are just the perfect leisure shoe.  In case you missed the memo, slip on sneakers are all the rage right now, and I mean... gingham!!  They have a nice cushion on the bottom (or you can always slip in a thin insole if you'd like, as I do on many of my shoes for extra comfort) and sections of elastic flanking the "tongue" for a comfortable fit regardless of your foot width.  

Patterned shoes are such a good choice to spice up an otherwise plain t-shirt and jeans outfit, or as we enter this time of year- sweater and jeans!  

There are a couple of other darling shoes available on the site too, but I had to share these with you as well.  Mules are another style that is super hot this Fall, and I'm crazy about these:

I also wanted to share a few home things that I'm currently loving from TPP- (if you have a question about specifics of a product, feel free to email TPP, they're great to respond!)

My Advent Scripture Cards are in a photo above, but I also love this set of Hand Lettered Scripture Memory Cards.

This Metal Chain Garland with clips is perfect for displaying those cards!

There are several different options for Hand Lettered Art, including some popular quotes, hymn lyrics, and scripture verses.  

There are many other cute things available on TPP website, or in store if you're ever near Broken Arrow.  I'm looking forward to sharing more cute products with a purpose with you each month.

Thank you for allowing me to share a cause that's near to my heart today.  Be sure to follow The Plaid Pineapple on Facebook or Instagram for the latest product releases and sale information!   And if you're just here for pretty photos and home decor ideas, I'd love to share more with you about this Good News of Jesus we're talking about, and how much He loves you and wants a relationship with you!  Email me any time at dimplesandtangles (at) att (dot) net.

  1. Do you follow Studio McGee? Their online shop now sells that scallop bowl!!

    1. I didn't know that, thanks! That's been a tough one to find online, thanks for sharing in case someone is looking for it!

  2. I love those shoes, too, so I had to order them! I rarely find that style in my size so I am very excited to get them, and to know a percentage of the sale is going to a great ministry is a bonus.

  3. So cute! Do the shoes run true to size?

  4. This is wonderful, Jennifer! Happy to follow your links to great products with a purpose.
