Each equinox and solstice we get a fun gift. In fact, that's the only rule, that it must be something fun and NOT practical. This is something I've done for many many years before meeting Tim, and I love that he does it with me.
For him, it's a weekend away of gaming in October and for me, a Halloween wax burner, new fall mugs and I'm thinking some glowy green spider lights. But here's the catch, I'm not buying until this office/catch-all room is DONE.
Talk about motivation.
Meanwhile, check out the Halloween wax burner, along with a 30% coupon. Click Yankee Candle Coupon, to print your own. To view the entire collection, click, Yankee Candle Halloween Collection. Online coupon code is SAVE30 (30% off your entire order). Expiry date 15 of September.
Cheers and boogie boogie.
If both of those gifts make you guys happy, that's what matters.ReplyDelete
Happy? I'm thrilled. And I know Tim will have fun with his gaming weekend away with his blogger buddies.Delete
That is by far the coolest wax burner I have EVER seen!!ReplyDelete
It really is :-)Delete
I like the idea of seasonal mugs! I have dozens of them, and still whenever I open my cupboard in the morning, I'm like - I have no mugs to drink my tea from...ReplyDelete
Do you have a favorite?Delete
Today I rotated our mugs and plates. Bowls and all that good stuff. I like to change it up with the seasons.
I love them see-through :) My favourite ones are always the glass ones through which I can see the colour of the tea, the bits of honey and lemon..... I'd love to have a sparkly one too :) but we have no such mugs here ....Delete
Are you able to order from Amazon? Might be a few sparkly ones there.Delete
nope, too pricey with the customs and we don't have PayPal in my country so we cannot really shop online.Delete
No credit card or mac card online purchases either? Oy.Delete
Just mixed together a homemade vanilla brown sugar latte. Drinking it from my Wonder Woman mug.
Indeed it is. Do you and Daisy get into Halloween? She really lucked out with all those cakes. So fun.Delete
Does she blog?
That's one pretty cool lookin' wax burner.ReplyDelete
I love it so much. Hope it's still in stock when we go. Otherwise, I guess I can order it online but it's more money.Delete
Do you burn wax melts? I like the ones that AC Moore sells. Those are my favorite melts.
Very cool! I got sick of the summer weather around here and went ahead about bought autumn house decorations and candles to try to encourage Fall to get up and running. Took about a week, but the weather has cooled off a bit (we'll see how it lasts...and knowing Colorado, it'll probably snow next week).ReplyDelete
I was looking through photos of the puppies and saw them covered in snow.Delete
Fall is a great time of year. Will we see any photos of your decorations?
I think the equinox and solstice gifts are an excellent tradition (especially the part about how they can't be practical)!ReplyDelete
That's the only rule. It's great fun. A silly little thing and I'm happy that Tim does it with me, now.Delete
That is awesome! It's one of the nicest Halloween decorations I've ever seen. I'd probably have it out year long.ReplyDelete
Oh yeah, this baby won't get put in storage. It's just too much of a nice piece.Delete
Do you like to melt wax tarts?
Cool and fun ideaReplyDelete
Do you have any seasonal traditions?Delete
very cool crow - my daughter would LOVE that. She started collecting crows - although most of them are in storage now because of the house project. There's still one seated on top of her American Girl doll's head...ReplyDelete
Funny about it on top of her American Girl doll. Great photos of your little one today, as well. Funny how little dogs sometimes act so big and tough.Delete
I KNOW! Can you believe YC sent out such a fabulous coupon! I'm trying to make up my mind between the black cat shade of the spiderweb votive holder. And I got Halloween Target Barbie today. Woo-hoo!ReplyDelete
It's is a good one. I'm glad too. I missed out on the $10/$25 from last time.Delete
I'd love to see a picture of your Halloween Barbie. Will she appear on your blog?
PS: Just went and checked. Those are both cool. Boy, this is a fun holiday.Delete
That is a nice tradition and your Autmn/Halloween theme is fun.ReplyDelete
Now get cracking on that room!
I've did a good bit, real happy with what I did today. And thankful to have another day tomorrow.Delete
Loved the hair on your mini today. Nicely done, that's for sure.
As soon as you're done you can kick back and watch the telly with your feet up and a mug of something warm.Delete
It got suddenly cold here and we had a hard frost. It's cold enough to have driven my cat indoors to sleep with me. I hope it warms back up. Too soon to be cold for me.
I just made myself a homemade vanilla brown sugar latte. So good. Not done yet but making good progress.Delete
Cold here this morning. Just starting to warm up now.
Maybe I can actually afford to buy a Yankee Candle. I usually get other less expensive brands.ReplyDelete
Do you have a favorite flavor? I love the warm smells. Sugar cookie, Christmas cookie, vanillas. But Yankee is so high with their prices, that we've taken to Wally's Mianstays. Hazelnut Cream.Delete
I wouldn't have thought of gifts for solstices or equinoxes...ReplyDelete
It's quite fun.Delete
That's a fun idea. My mom used to buy us silly stuff when we were kids on all the holidays.ReplyDelete
Sounds fun. What was the silliest gift?Delete
I think it was for Valentine's Day and it was a small squishy witch (which would've been more appropriate for Halloween...). She was ugly and squat and didn't do anything but I thought she was fun :)Delete
That's a good memory. Love those.Delete
Love it. We like to go on hikes for solstice...ReplyDelete
I love being outside during these holidays. Do you go anywhere special?Delete
I think that candle would frighten the life out of my kids!ReplyDelete
That's the fun of it.Delete
What a great time for gifting. I love your love of Halloween. Your house must look so festive. And that is such an awesome wax burner. Next shopping trip I'm getting a Halloween mug! :)ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing a picture of your new Halloween mug.Delete
I wish I knew WHY I can't get the REPLY buttons to work. Oh well...ReplyDelete
Anyway, no, I do not melt wax. I have tons of candles in the house, but I don't burn them, either. I used to, but now there's no place to safely put them and burn them (at least where I can see them and not FORGET about them!).
I just saw that Yankee Candle has a scented flameless collection. Though I haven't seen them in person yet.Delete
Not sure why the reply button doesn't work. Blogger gets so wonky sometimes.
That crow is awesome! And I love the idea of gift giving during solstice and equinox.ReplyDelete
It's great fun.Delete
Oooh, cool decoration! I always buy a new Halloween decoration every year!ReplyDelete
Best holiday, EVAR :-)Delete
