Girl Scout cookies are good for you and heart stuff!

(heart mug with free heart candleholder by Gary Rith and for sale at the online gallery!)
YES, 2 more of these babies up for sale. I am not calling them a heart mug and candleholder combo anymore. Like a used car salesman or RONCO, the price is the same as last week, BUT THIS week I am saying that the candleholder is FREE. That way people who weren't reading last week will think they have lucked into some special deal (HAR!).
This <3 stuff has been selling like crazy. I just shipped a heart mug to Britain, and luckily shipping costs from the US just went up. Can you guess how much? Not 10 bucks, not 14 or 15, 20 rude dollars and 20 cents to ship a mug to Britain. More than the cost of the mug. That's how it goes sometimes.

My best pal Cheri is a Girl Scout Troop leader. Those cookies no longer have trans fats in them. Cheri's troop is using their proceeds to buy computers for kids in Africa, I kid you not. Everybody loves Girl scout cookies, and now the recipe is HEALTHY?????? Go talk to Cheri and have some sent to your honey for Valentine's.

Healthy GS cookies that go toward a good cause?! That's the best thing I've heard all year. :)

You have to be so happy with how well the heart mugs are selling - can't wait to get mine!

Yay, no trans fats. Have they dumped those nasty mint things, yet? Just give me the regular chocolate and vanilla combo box and we're good. :-)

Shortbread, all the way.

Love the header, and your heart pottery! :)

Why the comment moderation?

I ordered two boxes from Girl Scout friend A, and two boxes from Girl Scout friend B.

Ooh! Ooh! And, I have a set of those hearts up there! I ate my chicken soup in my heart mug for lunch and there is always a clean scented candle in my hear candle holder!
