All Christmas gifts have now been purchased.  I have been scrambling for the last few days to finish my Christmas shopping, because next week my schedule will shift into high gear with Christmas events (including a Company Christmas party at my house, which is causing a bit of a panic).  So, I was excited to go to the re-inspiration store today ( to check off my last few items.

The first thing I purchased was this -

It is a candle that smells like campfire.  They also have candles that smell like dirt, fresh cut grass, gunpowder and other manly scents.  They were invented by this boy as a joke and a desperate attempt to buy a new bike, but they have really taken off -

The next items that inspired me were these -

They are books made into secret hiding places -

I didn't buy one, but my oldest daughter would love this as a gift.  Maybe next year.

I wasn't going to buy anymore jewelry, but I couldn't leave the store without this necklace made by Jill Fagin ( -

Even though I really want to keep it, I can't buy anything else for myself right now.  So, I'm going to give it to someone who might be reading this.  If you don't like it, feel free to re-gift it to me next Christmas.
