Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir-US/CAN- Ends Sept. 4/16

A second volume of "Spots-On" super-heroics that are nothing short of Miraculous!

When the treacherous Hawk Moth uses his evil energy to transform the citizens of Paris into super villains, only two amazing heroes stand in his way: Ladybug & Cat Noir! With the help of their magical pets and their Miraculous (jewelry), this incredible duo teams up to outwit Hawk Moth and keep their city safe... but their biggest challenge is balancing their normal lives with their secret identities and newfound powers. You see, Ladybug & Cat Noir are actually Marinette and Adrien, a pair of young students who seem to live a typical teenage life. But even for these two, it's hard to juggle schoolwork, friends, family and growing up when every day is a super-powered adventure!
Becoming Ladybug is a complicated process. First, Marinette needs a "Kwami," which is a tiny magical assistant (called Tikki). She also needs a "Miraculous," which is a magical accessory (her special pair of earrings). Tikki uses the Miraculous to transform Marinette, but her Ladybug super powers only work for a limited time!

It is a good thing that she gets a little help from her superhero partner, Cat Noir even though she insists she doesn't need him. If only she knew Cat Noir's true identity – her school crush, Adrien! It will take a lot – friendship, teamwork and skill – to outwit Hawk Moth.
Will Ladybug and Cat Noir be able to balance their double lives and keep Paris safe? Will they ever find out each other's true identity? Until then – there is a whole city of baddies to defeat… SPOTS ON, CLAWS OUT!

Featuring six more incredible episodes from the action-packed animated series, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir: Spots On is a high flying collection of heroic adventure that'll have you bugging out!

The Evillustrator
Dark Cupid
The Mime

Rainy Day Giveaway-US/CAN Ends Aug. 20/16

Have you ever wondered just how much rain we get in a storm or a really rainy day? Or do you have a good thermometer that will tell you how hot it is outside? Well here is your chance to win yourself a Rain gauge and a really great outdoor thermometer.
First we have the Outdoor 6" Deluxe Rain Gauge. Check out the video here:
Hubby put ours up today and so far we have almost 1 3/4" of rain in it.

You can see the numbers much better on the site. Hubby said the rain gauge is so easy to put up and it took him all of about 2 minutes to do. He told our son today that he will have to come and check it out. Then he talked about the thermometer and was saying how he loves that too. Our son said it sounds pretty nice and next time he is here he is going to have a look.
We had a little rain this afternoon although not the storm they called for but it might rain more through the night. The blue attachment is what you slide off the back and then you screw it to the board or whatever you are going to place it on. Once its tightened on, you slide the holder onto it and wait for it to rain. I wish I would have had this last week when we really got a downpour. Oh I am sure we will get that again though. So now we will know how much rain we are having. It is sturdy and dependable, and is virtually unbreakable and built tough to withstand the harshest climate, it is even frost resistant. These rain gauges don't discolour in the sun like other brands, they stay easy to read for years. A great way to manage your garden and veggie patch watering so you don't waste water unnecessarily. I know we are going to love our rain gauge.

Then we have the Digital MIN/MAX Weather Thermometer and this I really like too. We had an old thermometer outside our window but this one is much better. Sorry but I took the photo from inside and you can't really see the temp all that great. Check it out here It has a clear easy to read lcd display screen showing the current temperature and the latest min/max temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Hubby put ours in Fahrenheit so I can read it better. I don't like Celsius. I wasn't brought up learning that so I am old school I guess. This is so easy to read and it is virtually unbreakable so it can stay out even in the winter without having to worry about it breaking on us. These rain gauges won't yellow in the sun like other brands, they stay easy to read for years. Yesterday our temperature outside was 109 degrees Farenheit. This versatile indoor-outdoor thermometer automatically sets the min/max temperatures, or you can easily reset it yourself with the press of a button.It has a clear screen with easy-to-read digital display between -58 F - 158 F Today after our little rain it dropped somewhat to 82 degrees. Hubby fell right in love with this thermometer. Men, right? lol He just couldn't wait to unwrap it and get it hung out. Now we just look out the window and we know what the temperature is all the time. So we have a rain gauge and a new thermometer and you can enter to win both of these today. By the way, I received these products all the way from Australia. It really is a cute thermometer looking like a little house.
This adds a nice decorative touch to the verandah, hang in your greenhouse, shed or wherever you need to see the temperature. Makes a great gift as well!

Get your entries in if you want to win these products. Thanks to the sponsor. Good luck everyone.

#Jord Wood watch-Ends July 1/16

Unique Watches

Open to everyone!
A couple days ago we received a Jord Wood Watch from and hubby is in love with it. I was quite surprised as well at how nice it really is for being made of wood. My son has to see this watch. He couldn't believe it when we told him it was coming. When he sees it he will be looking for one too. He is out of luck because hubby isn't giving this one up. Hubby looked at all of the watches shown on Jord and he chose this one,

Our hometown of St. Louis has a downtown dotted with historic brick buildings. Varying in size and structure the modest designs have remained relevant to the modern day businesses and homes that now inhabit them, like the Ely Walker Warehouse - now lofts - that our Ely is named for. Its classic styling and construction has stood the test of time. Time honored style will find no lack of appreciation in the present day.**

The watch came in a lovely Jord box like this The watch sits quite nicely on a little pillow
Hubby can wear this watch pretty well anywhere he goes. If he is fishing, hunting, camping, or going to a wedding its great for dress up wear as well as casual. He loves this watch and so do I. These watches will make wonderful #Fathers Day gifts for someone. All we had to do was measure hubby's wrist where the watch would fit comfortably on him and the people at Jord sized it perfectly for him.
Sorry the photos are not the best quality, I really need a new camera. Hubby's watch is $129 and there are many to choose from. Go to and check them out for yourself. Not only do they have #Gifts for men but they have ladies watches also here I can guarantee it will take you a while to decide which watch you would like. There are many styles to fit any person out there. Have great conversations with your friends and co-workers when they see your wood watch.
