    Mirror is spectacular. Masks are interesting. This post is hysterical. On a more serious note…. my dentist gives me free dental floss and a new toothbrush when I see her every six months for cleaning. If your dentist doesn’t do this for you, it might be a suggestion…? Would be an even bigger savings for you to have more money to buy GFT!

    I am unashamed to admit that I just ordered the hat for my husband. He’s going to absolutely love it!

    That is one of the most amazing mirrors I have ever seen not in Versailles. My only judgment is that you have incredible taste. xAllie

    First, I get the feeling Paul is an engineer. ASK ME HOW I KNOW. (My husband does similar silliness such as the floss audit.)

    Two, all the GFT for always.

    Lastly, my kitten smells like cinnamon. When I sniff him as he sleeps he pushes his paws into my face as if to say ‘Moooooom. Stop smelling my floofs! I’m sleepin’ here!”

    Paul and my husband must be related in their “personal grooming economics”. My children can all accurately quote “the toilet paper lesson”. FOUR squares, fold, wipe, fold again, wipe. Repeat if necessary (but only once). We also argue about the 5 extra cents we spend on electricity because I dont turn the light out in the kitchen…when I AM COMING RIGHT BACK!

    That is the best gift to give any male…. More importantly if it helps in your debates on the purchase of items, I noticed on the majority of receipts a store will indicate the dollar amount you saved. I boldly circle this numerical amount in red ink and adhere the front of our refrigerator next to a sign. This sign states it is not what I spent that matters but the amount I SAVED.

    I am so sad.

    You did not put my comment through.

    I feel unloved! Unwanted!

    Please write a book. I’ll buy one for myself and many copies to give as gifts. You are delightful!

    You should know that that Cthulhu mask was hand-crocheted by someone. Because there is no machine on the planet that can crochet (yet). btw, I love your taste in gifts!

    The mirror is WONDERFUL. And you are hilarious! It’s why I’m still following you and have given up so many others. Plus you love cats…………….. and who can do better?

    I bought my husband that exact hat a few months ago … I also have a mirror troll that lives in my head. You’re my favorite, I use your blog to explain my thought process to the naysayers. You’re my spirit animal lol.

    You are simply investing into your retirement plan! How can he not see this every time you buy a beautiful antique item. The resale one day in the far far future will be splendid.
