USB Powered Clip-on Computer Light

24 03 2008

Everyone but me saw this one coming. I like to work on the porch in nice weather and eventually it gets dark. This light saves the day (ok, night). It plugs into a USB port, and clips onto the laptop. It provides various degrees of light thanks to a dimmer switch. I love this little thing.
This should be considered a must-have in all laptop bags. You can get your own flylight 2.0 USB light at shoplet.


Real Voodoo Doll

14 03 2008

This Mister is large and in charge. Or is he? You’ll find that when you place the doll in your home in an area where the man in your life can see him; you’re the one in control!

When your man sees the white pin in the doll’s “private’s”, he knows he’s flying right. The black pin, however, means “Look out Mister!” So, let that man know who’s really in charge!

Comes complete with pins and instructions.

I have many many thoughts on this….most of them very very naughty…

I especially like the red pom poms on the doll. Very festive. I have a friend that might like this doll…though she would have to remove one of the pom poms…

Oh well, this is the real deal, an authentic Voodoo doll. They have others too…but THIS one was the one that caught my attention. I wonder why.

Anyway, get your own from Voodoo Authentica

20 Questions Electronic Game

10 03 2008

One of my best friends got me one of these for my birthday. I have spent hours upon hours playing with it…and so has everyone else in my house. This thing is a blast and is almost always correct. I mean I was thinking of my dog and it said Pomeranian….and she IS a Pomeranian.

This is a great game for long car trips with the kids too….everyone in the car can play, even the driver.

This is inexpensive but well worth the money just for playing and having fun. It’s certainly more fun than the last 3 movies I went to see…

  • Small spherical game of 20 Questions offers hours of retro fun
  • Old arcade style sound effects, and a red light display for its various questions and guesses
  • Answer the ball’s questions by pressing buttons for yes, no, sometimes, or don’t know
  • Requires two AA batteries (included); note that color may vary
  • Light switch for night or indoor play.

Druids Oak Journal

9 03 2008

I like to write, obviously. But I also like to write in beautiful journals. I started collecting them more than 20 years ago and this is one of my absolute favourites. The best part of this journal is that when I’m done, I can refill it with another plain journal and keep writing. It has also aged very well. The more it has been used the softer it has gotten.

This is another item that I purchased through Gaelsong a few years ago and I’m happy to say that they still carry it. They also have other styles but this remains the one I prefer.

It’s not cheap, but it is extremely well made and worth the money. It will last forever. Get yours at Gaelsong.

Plasma Ball

5 03 2008

Creates an amazing light show – from any angle!

A little bit of science, a little bit of art, and a whole lot of cool! This Nebula Plasma Ball is simply the ultimate interactive light show. Blending specially formulated inert gases, it creates a dramatic display of light inside a hand-blown glass sphere!

Fascinating to watch, this light is even more fun to play with! Just place your fingers on the glass surface and watch as colored bolts of glowing light follow your every move. You can actually “feel” the energy as the light gently tickles your fingertips!

Featuring a super-large 8″ glass sphere, the Nebula Plasma Ball can be viewed from any angle, and comes complete with its own AC power adapter and unique designer base that compliments any room. AC powered adapter included.

This is really NOT a toy. There is a protective coating on the glass. If you do drop it, and the glass breaks, the Plasma Ball is designed to stay in generally the same ball shape, without flying glass.

Simply the BEST Plasma Ball on the market today!

My mother got me one of these back in the 1980’s and I still love it. Get yours at Scientifics.

Yankee Candles – Lilac Blossoms

3 03 2008

An alluring grove of lavender, white, and deep purple lilacs. Experience the authentic, true-to-life fragrance and renowned Yankee Candle quality that have made us America’s favorite. The traditional design of our signature jar candles reflects a warm, relaxed sense of style that’s always at home. Convenient and easy to use, these long-burning jars provide hours of true fragrance enjoyment. They’re also the ideal gift for any occasion.

I love these candles. Not only do they smell as good burning as when they are unlit, but the smell but the smell also permeates the entire house. Not heavily, just a light scent. These candles cost a bit more but last longer than other brands. I love their candle of the month deal that they have. I try a new one every month. Lilac Blossoms is my favourite spring scent. Get yours at Yankee Candles.

Iona Cross

2 03 2008

In the worldview of the Celts, every aspect of life is understood as connected, intertwined. Celtic crosses reflect this awareness even in the most ancient of designs. This graceful cross is adapted from one found at the monastery on Iona in Scotland. Sterling silver, on an 18″ chain. Measures 1 1/8″ tall x 3/4″ wide.

This was an Easter gift from a friend and I wear it constantly. It is absolutely beautiful and the way the way the light reflects off of it is amazing. It almost looks as though it is glowing.

My friend purchased it at Gaelsong.
