Creative bookshelves!

My own bookshelves are sadly conventional, but I will always look with deep interest at more innovative ones. Here are a few that recently caught my eye. (Thanks, Bored Panda!)

Any of these get your bookish heart thumping? :)

Oh, and here’s a quick glimpse of one of my giveaways . . .

“For maximum deliciousness”

This intrigues me.

Says Business Insider:

If you love the smell of a Quarter Pounder burger, then this candle pack is ideal for recreating the fragrance of McDonald’s within the comfort of your own home.

The six-piece candle set includes the Quarter Pounder ingredient-inspired scents of ketchup, pickle, cheese, onion, bun, and 100% fresh beef. 

You can light the candles individually, but the product description recommends burning them all at once “for maximum deliciousness.”

What do you think? Would you have these in your house? I might be tempted to go for a french fry scented candle. :)

“You can only keep 3”

Oh my gosh, this is HARD!

But I’ll have to go with pet, books, and coffee. And feel bad about leaving out chocolate. :)

You?

Meet my valentine!

Presenting . . . Sissy! She was born in Thailand in 1968, which means she’s 52 years old. She’s 8 feet, 3 inches tall, and her favorite food is mazuri pellets. She loves to splash and swim in ponds, even in the rain, and she has an unusual communication style of flipping the end of her trunk to make a popping noise. These delightful sounds are often heard when she’s socializing or when she has a new enrichment item to play with.

Isn’t she beautiful?!?

You see, for Valentine’s Day I “adopted” Sissy, a resident of the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.  Am I in love? Totally.
