(HGG) Enviro-Logs & Firestarters-US/CAN-Ends Oct. 30/16

The weather is sure changing quickly. Here in Canada where I live its getting pretty cool but I do love the changing colors of the leaves on the trees, its so lovely to see. There is always time to enjoy sitting in front of a fireplace or at a bon-fire watching the fire and enjoying the warmth.
So here is your chance to win some Enviro-Log Firelogs and Enviro-Log Firestarters They are reliable and green, providing long-lasting and clean-burning alternatives to firewood, kindling and lighter fluid. Great for entertaining and safe to cook over.

Enviro-Log Firelogs are known as the greenest and most versatile firelogs on the market, they are the ultimate firewood substitute. They are made from 100 percent recycled waxed cardboard and when compared to firewood,they burn cleaner, emitting 30 percent less greenhouse gases, 80 percent less carbon monoxide and 86 percent less creosote.

Enviro-Log Firelogs can also be stored and burned in all weather conditions and can be transported for camping, fishing, RVing, and other outdoor activities without the concern of restrictions imposed on firewood by some states and campsites. Enviro-Log Firelogs are also great for emergency preparedness because they have an infinite shelf life and are safe to cook over. They are also a popular choice for fire pits, wood stoves, chimneys, and campfires.

They come in 5-pound and 3-pound sizes and are available at select retailers, including Home Depot, Kmart, Lowes, True Value, Rite Aid, Sears, Whole Foods and Walmart. Each 5-pound firelog will burn up to 3 hours and each 3-pound firelog will burn up to 2 hours. Isn't this fantastic?

Now the Enviro-Log Firestarters are made from 100 percent recycled eco-friendly wax and offer an alternative to kindling, petroleum-based starter blocks, lighter fluids and ethanol-based gels. Each firestarter provides up to 20 minutes of burn time with tall and consistent flames that can even light firewood that has been dampened with light snow or rain. When burned to completion, each firestarter is 100 percent consumed and leaves no mess to clean up.

Ideal for back packing, hiking, camping, fishing or and emergency preparedness, Enviro-Log Firestarters provide a safe, clean and environmentally friendly way to start a fire anywhere. They can be purchased at select retail locations, including Ace Hardware, Lowe’s, Rite Aid, The Home Depot (Northeast Region) and many regional grocery and hardware retailers.

I think these are awesome and I know you will as well.

(HGG) Blinky Bill-The Movie DVD-US/CAN-Ends Oct.24/16

Blinky Bill is a little koala with a big imagination. An adventurer at heart, he dreams of leaving the little town of Green Patch and following his explorer father's footsteps. His father, Mr. Bill, went missing in the Outback sometime ago and Blinky is the only one who believes his dad is still alive.
When Blinky discovers a mysterious clue that hints at his dad's where abouts, he embarks on a journey that takes him beyond the boundary of Green Patch and into the wild and dangerous Outback!

He quickly makes friends with Nutsy a zoo koala, and Jacko, a nervous frill-necked lizard. Pursued relentlessly by a vengeful cat who has a personal score to settle with Blinky, the trio must learn to work together if they ever want to survive the rugged Australian landscape and find Blinky's father!

I know all kids and maybe even some adults will enjoy this movie.
Check out the trailer here:

This fun-filled family movie boasts an all-star voice cast of Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Rufus Sewell (The Man in High Castle), Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine), David Wenham (Lord Of The Rings), Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge, Maya the Bee-Movie), Robin McLeavy (Hell on Wheels), Barry Otto (The Great Gatsby) and Barry Humphries (Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Finding Nemo). With a stellar ensemble voice cast bringing to life these beloved characters and an all-Australian creative team translating the rugged beauty of the outback in stunning CG animation, BLINKY BILL: THE MOVIE offers an immersive cinematic adventure that brims with fun, frolic, humor and action. With the kind of universal appeal that reaches families and children, BLINKY BILL: THE MOVIE further explores universal themes including the importance of community, survival in harsh climate, the love between children and their parents, and ‘mateship’ – an Australian cultural idiom that embodies equality, loyalty and friendship.

Blinky Bill is one of Australia’s most recognized characters and a bona fide icon. The lovable antics of the mischievous koala have captured the hearts of millions since the release of The Adventures of Blinky Bill book series in 1933. In 1992, the first feature film Blinky Bill, The Mischievous Koala was released in major territories. This was followed by several successful TV series and movies which continue to air around the world today.

Lampe Berger Review

Do you know of a better way to make your home smell nice and inviting other than a lamp from Lampe Berger? Recently I was sent this lovely lamp.
and with this came the fragrance of Orange Cinnamon. I think this will be nice for this time of year being autumn and with Christmas not that far away.
Orange scent is always nice and makes any home smell good and the cinnamon in with it is even more pleasant. This is the Satin Red Lampe. I love the bright color too.This lamp also comes in matted white so either color would be great at holiday time.

With the kit you get the lamp, the scent and a funnel to pour in the scent.First you fill the lamp with scent, then you put in the wick and you wait for 20 minutes if its your first time using the lamp. You then light the top of the lamp (wick) and wait for 2 minutes then blow out the flame. Put the cap which is open all the way around for the scent to escape from and then sit back and enjoy while the lamp cleanses and perfumes your home. Once the 20 minutes of use is up, take the top off and replace it with the solid cap to close it. Then it will be ready for the next time you use it. It is recommended not to exceed the 20 minutes for a room of 8 sq. metres.
Your home will smell so great.

You can always replace the scent if you have more by adding some So Neutral blend *about 50 ml* to the lamp. Let it work for 20 minutes then cap the lamp and when its cold, fill it with the new fragrance. Be careful not to go past the maximum level for filling the lamp of 2/3 full. You never mix 2 different Lampe Berger Home Fragrances with the only exception being the adding of So Neutral.

It was in 1898 the amazing Lampe Berger story started. Maurice Berger was a pharmaceutical dispenser who invented a system of diffusion
by catalysis, for which he filed a patent.

With over 5 million litres of fragrances and 800,000 lamps sold every year around the world, Lampe Berger is still a huge success, over a century after it was invented. It was always a French company from the start but enjoys a truly international reputation, distributed in 56 countries, present in 7,000 sales outlets around the world.

I love Lampe Berger and if you would like to take a look at all the fragrances and the lamps they offer you can check them out here. They would make a wonderful gift for someone for Christmas.

Raincoast Books – #PlayTestShare: Family Night! - Giveaway! Canada Only

I think all families with kids have a night set for family night. You play games, do puzzles or crafts or something else. I know kids love games and books so here is a chance to win some of those for your children.
We have 10 blogs participating in this giveaway of games and books that Raincoast is hosting for us again.
For this giveaway, I was able to choose two books or games. I chose Punch Out & Play Game Book which the grandchildren had a lot of fun with.
One book, so many ways to play! Acclaimed artist and designer Laura Ljungkvist invites children to punch out 10 different puzzles and 13 classic games, such as Memory, Go Fish, and Dominoes. Packed with fun, graphic artwork, a variety of games, and plenty of colorful envelopes for easy storage, this book provides hours of play for kids of all ages-all in an attractively priced package.

Sorry about that table cloth. I was at my daughter in law's and never thought to move it. The game the kids are playing is a memory game and Aiden was the winner.

The second book I chose was for adults, the Fantastic Collections
A Coloring Book of Amazing Things Real and Imagined illustrated by Steve McDonald.
In this newest coloring book by the author of the internationally bestselling Fantastic Cities (more than 400,000 copies in print),artist Steve McDonald uses his unique photo-based approach to create beautiful and intimately detailed line drawings of amazing collections of objects. Finding inspiration in the unusual (museum collections, antiques, and quirky toys) and the everyday (leaves, butterflies, vintage cameras, store product displays), McDonald creates playful and immersive illustrations that are as lovely as they are fun to color. The quality of the large, crisp white pagesare conducive to a range of applications, while a middle margin keeps all the artwork fully colorable. A dozen meditative mandalas created from the drawings round out this gorgeous adult coloring book.

Listography: The Game This book is the other one for adults.
May the Best List Win!
by Lisa Nola and Forrest-Pruzan Creative
A new twist on the bestselling Listography journal series (almost 900,000 titles sold), this game invites players to create and share lists based on fun and thought-provoking topics-from geography and pop culture to toothpaste and constellations! With the goal of being the first around the game board, players score points according to the number of similar or unique answers. Every round in the game results in creative thinking, surprise outcomes, and lots of laughs.

You can go here to see the other items offered for this giveaway.

One lucky winner will get to choose two of the books or games of their choice. Canada only and this ends September 20/16
Good luck everyone and thanks to the sponsor.
