The bracelets fit perfectly. I'm wearing the green pair of earrings right now. The scarf -- well, sparkly AND blue/green/turquoise. Doesn't get much better than that. I think the candles will go to my little meditation space (where I will heed your stern advice and NOT burn my house down). The chocolate and vodka will not last the day, I'm sure.

Oh, and the jewelry, scarf and candles are all handmade by purplehorseshoe herself. (Almost typed "herelf." Freudian typo!)

Merry Christmas and thank you so much for all the goodies!

Sounds so pretty!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Be of Good Cheer, and whatever else floats y'all's* boats!
