#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.

LampeBerger-Canada Only-ends June 26/16

In 1898 in response to deal with disinfection in hospitals at that time, Maurice Berger invented the system of diffusion by catalysis, on which he files a patent.
Well this past week I received a package from LampeBerger as I am a Brand Ambassador for them. The lamp I received is Athena lamp in gray and it is lovely. I also received three bottles of scent and I used the Extreme Orange and it smells wonderful. I smell the scent of oranges everywhere. This would make for a great scent to have working when we decide to sell our home. They say these scents help to sell so we will see. The other two scents I received are Mineral Oakmoss and Subtle Almond. They will be nice also.

The lamp came in a real pretty draw-string bag like this You will get a lamp, the funnel to pour the scent into it, the wick and the open top to place on once the flame is out and ready to use.
To begin, take the top off of your lamp and use the funnel supplied and you fill the lamp with the scent,and for the first time using this, you wait for 20 minutes. This is so the wick will get well saturated with the scent. Then you light the top of the lamp and wait 2 minutes and then blow the flame out. Put the top casing back on and enjoy the scent that will go through your home. This will destroy undesirable odors such as cooking, tobacco, pet smells.. (an area at 500 degree celcius
attracts the malodorous molecules preventing from reproducing). Now you just sit back and let the scent go right through your home. Once you are done with the lamp, you replace the open top with the closed top. LampeBerger has more than 100 years of history. Take a look at all of the lamps and scents here at I know you will see something there that will be to your liking. You can see all the new lamps and fragrances there.
The sponsor has offered a Timeless Rose scent along with the Passion Lamp in Red. Good luck everyone.
