Brand new favorite things !!

Don't you hate it when you go out to get something you need...and then end up buying things you really don't ? --and you never do get what you were looking for in the first place o_O

Yup, that's what happened today. I was going to look for a small, elegant and modern table for our newly renovated bathroom, but I got distracted by all the wonderful Christmas displays !

And this is what I ended up getting:

I LOVE this mug !!!! The colors drew me instantly and the funkiness and the feel. I don't like small mugs, give me something that holds lots of hot chocolate/tea/coffee, something I can wrap my hands around from thumb to pinky :)
This was found at one of my fav. stores in Sidney B.C. called DRAGON HORSE "a candy store for the spirit"
Lots of fabulous items for the soul, from Feng Shui goodies to salt lamps, cards to crystals, candles and more.
The mug is one of several from a line called Britto by Romero Britto. Love it !

Have you ever walked in a forest, brushed against a fir tree and were suddenly wrapped with the smell from the fir ?
This candle smells just like that. It also makes me think of freshly cut Christmas trees surrounded by soft white lights.
Very aromatic, the candle is called Frasier Fir and it's by Thymes I purchased the candle at another lovely store in Sidney called The House Dressing Company Inc. They sell lots of fab. decor items for the home, big mirrors, couches, chairs, lots of blacks, browns and silvers.

Of course I had to get two of my fav. magazines. Alas, I was really wanting the latest Somerset Studio, but they were out ( gasp ! ). So these two were the next best thing. I'm so happy Victoria magazine came back, it is such a lovely and relaxing read with gorgeous photos abound.

Well that was my bit of unexpected fun in Sidney B.C. Now off to read while enjoying some tea in new mug and inhaling the fir......ahhhhhhh :)

I tried to visit your dragonhorse link but the link is for .com and I searched it and it's .ca... I thought the mug you found to be very inspiring, so I really wanted to look at the store. I just thought I would let you know about the link since the store does have similarly inspiring contents!

Thanks all :) I've fixed the link which shows just the outside of the store along with ph. # and email. I'll ask the owner if they could post a couple pics. of the inside, so you can at least get an idea of what she sells.
