On My Wish List

I want to invent microscopic lenses for use in glass frames so that you can wear them when it snows and see snowflakes the way nature would've intended if it were in any way practical.

On the 4th Day of Christmas..

Don't forget your canine buddy. This is a rubber ball with a huge smile attached. Oh, the fun at your pet's expense.

Make a snowflake and help contribute to the Salvation Army.

Santa Smells

Click above pic to see some true Christmas magic--Santa scaring the pants off of innocent children. And to be honest, you really can't blame them.
When you see some of these Santas, you'll see what I mean.

3 Turtledoves

What I love about the Christmas card exchange isn't amassing large amounts of them and having a big collection--it's more the feeling and depth of the message that does it for me. Quality over quantity is more my style. That's why I love cards made by Brush Dance. Because Hallmark may have the sentimental market covered, but if you're going to get all gooey, might as well take it to the next level (& a much more dignified one) and share some spirituality and wisdom as well. These cards pass right by sappy and go straight to sublime.

What We'll All Need After This Month

On the 2nd day of Christmas... No, this isn't just any old lava lamp. This is a 2 foot tall floor lava lamp. Fun for kids and adults and great for getting your retro on. I have never owned a lava lamp personally, but if I did, I'd have to go big and get this one. I'd also have to say, and yes Fred--I'm talking to you--I'd even get this over an I Dream of Jeanie bottle, which has it's a 70's charm all of its own.

Quality Authority

I'm going to do a 12 days of Christmas kind of thing and put up some great products I've come across that are excellent for gift-giving. These have been discovered in my travels and the only thing they all have in common is that they all totally kick a@#^%.

On the first day of shameless materialistic shopping bliss, make sure you give to me:

The Teavana Perfect Tea Maker. I heard about this & tried it thanks to my sister-in-law and it got the tea glands going. Think Tea Art. Steep the tea in the maker and seal your mug to the bottom when it's done, for a deep-sea-dive into tasty waters. Teavana also sells loose leaf teas, with heavenly varieties such as Jasmine Phoenix Scented Green and accoutrements like German Rock Cane sugar to take place of your sugar or honey. Ooohhh, honey--it's good.
