The win every time lottery

This is a non-Victorian post.  Other than the news that I will soon start volunteering at Dalnavert House (yeah!), I have no new things to share.

I was out shopping for my youngest boy’s 25th birthday (when did he get so old!) when I happened upon a Hidden Gem’s candle.  I have wanted to try one for some time now and so I bought one for myself.  In fact I had a “gift” for myself before I had one for my son!  Since I was there for the original birthday, I deserve a gift too, right?

I brought it home and lit it up.


It took a couple of evenings of burning to get to the point where I could find the hidden packet inside.


With the tweezers, I was able to get the packet out.


With a bit of ripping, I removed the foil and found my ring.


Wonders of wonders, it fit!  And is quite pretty on my wrinkly old hand.


It is valued at $25 which is less than I paid for the candle but I still have a few more nights of the candle and a the jar once it is done.  All in all a good deal.  I think I will add Hidden Gem’s candles to my birthday and Christmas wish list.  I think they are rather fun.

    It even looks Victorian! I will have to look for these candles.
