Why my wallet is empty

So does anyone want to see what I spent all my money on when we went to Christmas in the woods? I surprised myself by buying so much. Normally even though I see a lot of things I like I'm too cheap to actually buy them. This was a different story though. Maybe I was just always looking for the wrong things.
First up is this box. I was torn between buying this and a wood star that I really liked. In the end the box won out. There's a candle cup inside but I didn't have a candle when I took the picture.
 


This is a bad picture but this is a bench that I bought for Wade's cave. The color of the wood was perfect. It came with two cushions. One your choice of anything and the other was a Christmas print.

This is the the cushion I picked. It's perfect for the cave

This guy is probably my favorite purchase. I thought it was totally adorable. Normally you see these on a wood candle stick. I was surprised to find out that the base is a clear glass candle stick that was painted with a textured paint. What an awesome idea.

Last item was another one for the cave. I really liked these wood pine trees. They come completely apart and they had them in all different kinds of wood.  I think this was a honey locust.
There was one other item that I wanted to buy and had planned to stop and get it on the way out because it was right by the gate we came in. Unfortunatley I forgot.

OMG, Ann, I completely forgot about it too, I just looked at my map we were circling and I did mark it with a GB for "Go Back". I feel bad we forgot. What was it, I seem to have forgotten that too! Gosh, getting old is horrible, I think! I do love that snowman.

I can feel it getting closer can't you? Christmas decorations!!! Hooray! I am downloading all my Christmas CDs onto my ipodnano this weekend. Oh yes, only a few more weeks and I will be playing it.

Fun decorations Ann!

You got a great mix of items! I'm sure that Wade will enjoy his new man cave goodies.

Great purchases Ann! Good idea to get something for Wade's Mancave too so he can't say anything about what you got! :) The bench is really nice as is everything!

The bench is perfect for the man cave! I really like the blessings box too! I would find a way to use it all year around.
