This is very cool!!!!

So i was out at the flea market, it was freezing. I stopped at a booth that had some homemade natural products made from goat milk and all natural ingrediants. I have bought some of this ladys products before, they are great. But as i was standing there looking i saw something new she had there. It was stuffed animals.. wrapped up in bags. They looked different though..I piked one up, and WOW!!! they smelled W~~O~~N~~D~~E~~R~~F~~~U~~~L!!!! I said just what are these? She laughed.. She explained it to me. They are coated with wax that has a fragrence added to it. You just sit it in your room and it smells wonderful.. Now if the smell has become not so noticable, just take your blow dryer and warm it up a bit and it will smell good as new. I have never seen anything like it.. I have this lady's number if you would like one. She has several animals to choose from.
