Treasures for body and mind

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

The Christmas carols before Halloween were excessive and irritating but many of our family Christmas traditions occur before then.  The first present is usually purchased in July, spirited home, and lost until April the next year.  The Fruitcake from Hell is made in September.  Also in September, Mom warns us that she is "not doing much for Christmas" (a gift extravaganza follows), and we have a serious family discussion about budgeting and not going overboard (as if).  Then, in October, the Victoria's Secret catalogue with the Fantasy Bra arrives! 

This year's Floral Fantasy Bra Gift Set was designed by London Jewelers and features nearly 5,200 precious gems, including amethysts, sapphires, tsavorite, rubies and white, pink and yellow diamonds, set in 18-karat rose and yellow gold.  It includes the bra and a matching belt with two removable diamond flower pins and a centerpiece that includes a 12.5-carat diamond and a 20-carat white diamond.  If the relationship is not ready for lingerie, get your significant other a $500,000 bottle of perfume, the Bombshell Fantasy Fragrance, encrusted with white, pink and yellow diamonds, sapphires, tsavorite, rubies, a 10-carat white diamond, and a hand-carved tourmaline butterfly.

Yay!  Christmas!  38 days left!
