Addison’s Wonderland was a children’s bedding company known for its customized children’s bedspreads. The founder, interior designer Brittany Hayes from Georgia, launched the company in 2011 and pitched the retail business on Shark Tank in February 2013. She went into the Tank seeking an investment of $90,000 in exchange for 20 percent equity. Alas, Hayes did not land a deal.
Weeks after the Shark Tank episode aired, Hayes reported that while sales were great and inquiries from other investors started pouring in, it was during this time that she and her husband Mark “hit a huge road block in our marriage and what would quickly become the hardest time in my life. My focus went from Addison’s Wonderland to my family and my heart quickly slipped from my company.” She dissolved the bedding company in July 2014.
Since then, Addison’s Wonderland has evolved into a successful home décor, lifestyle and fashion blog. When not working on the blog, Hayes is house flipping and renovating homes with her husband — and HGTV! Hayes decorated the interior for the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway® 2019 (see photos below). New episodes of Shark Tank air Sundays at 10 pm on ABC, right after American Idol. [Related: 27 Favorite ‘Shark Tank’ Products at Amazon — New List]

Hayes’ daughter Winnie’s bedroom…

Quite possibly my very favorite picture of Winnie on my feed… Winter has quite the personality as you may know if you follow me on Stories. She has been an avid thumb sucker since she was four months old and then she added in this simultaneous belly button rubbing thing when she was about one. From that point on, she has done this thumb sucking/belly rubbing thing every single time she was bored, sleepy or sleeping. Although I’ve always thought it was the cutest and sweetest thing ever, I also knew that other people might not find it as darling when she goes to college 😜. So we’ve tried to make her stop. And the stubborn girl wasn’t budging. Then one day about three months ago she said “mommy I’m going to stop sucking my thumb and rubbing my belly”. And I said “when?” And she said “right now… I’m a big girl and I have twelve boyfriends and I’m ready to stop” 🙈 So she did. I literally haven’t seen her do it once since. And then I walked into her bedroom last night to turn off her Christmas tree and she was sucking her thumb. Likely the last time I’ll ever see her do it again. And my night was made… ❤️❤️❤️ Shop Her Bedroom on the @liketoknow.it app and on my blog under HOME TOUR http://liketk.it/2yz18 #liketkit #LTKfamily #LTKholidayathome #LTKholidaystyle #LTKhome
