Things I Love Thursday!

Yay! It's time for another "Things I Love Thursday!" I haven't done one of these in a while! Let me give you a list of great stuff that I have "discovered."I have yet to get one of these Cheshire Cat tails, but they are at the top of my list the next time I visit the Disney Parks! They look sooooo yummy and I want to see if I can get one to display in my room! Here's hoping it lasts long. In other words, I hope it doesn't melt or start getting mold or something along those lines...Speaking of Cheshire Cats, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is a must see film for anyone! I have heard great comments and reviews from people I know, and awful backlash from critics. I love it! I'm sure you'll love it too! I wouldn't really recommend watching it in 3-D, even though that's what kept it at #1 for three weeks. Ten minutes into the film, my eyes started to hurt. Let's just say I left the theater a little dizzy... Watch it soon before they get rid of it in theaters or you can wait less three months to get it DVD. From what I heard, they want to get it out in three months from the release date. Let's hope this is true!
Still along the lines of Alice in Wonderland is Almost Alice! An excellent tribute/song collection dedicated to Lewis Carroll's original books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, the 1951 Disney's Alice in Wonderland, and Tim Burton's new Alice in Wonderland. I'm actually listening to it right now as I'm typing this...(Signed picture I purchased at the D23 Expo last year from Margaret Kerry's booth. Sticked it on my wall next to my monitor, so that I can always look at him... Sigh..)

The cover of Almost Alice makes me think of one person... Johnny Depp!!! THE HOTTEST MAN ALIVE!!!! Squee >_< A hatter always offers tea and why not drink it in this charming mug. You know about my obsession with Jane Austen and this mug has just the right touch of my favorite Jane Austen hero. The BBC America online shopping website is the only one to offer this particular mug and it's just too darling!!!

These next items don't particularly match the chain I had above.
Moleskine's Passions Journals! My particular favorite is the Book Passion Journal (of course), but there are journals for Film, Wellness, Recipes, Wine, and Music. I have yet to get a Book Passion Journal, but I will.
I have been waiting for this album for quite a while. Last year a band called The Vespers friend requested me on MySpace. I went to their page to see if their music was good, and man did I love it!!! Their music is a mix between Folk, Indie and a little bit of Blue Grass, even though they don't consider themselves to be Blue Grass. You can listen to samples of their album here, or you can search for them on iTunes. You can check out their MySpace, which serves as an official band page for the time being, and you can check out their online store where you can purchase tees and a copy of a physical album. You can also hear full songs from their MySpace page. Totally recommend them like crazy!!!
This tote is extremely cute! This LA Hobo tote bag is made from natural cotton and features a map of Los Angeles! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! This same tote is also featured in different styles and colors, but I loved this one more. They even have different cities on their website. They might even feature the one you live in! Check out the Maptote website and look around to see if you find anything you like.
Lastly, I wanted to talk about lip gloss... but not just any lip gloss. This lip gloss can tell your fortune! Well not really but it also serves as a Magic 8 Ball.
Ask it a "Yes or No" question and it give you an answer. As a plus, it fits in your pocket or the bottom of your bag. This gloss is going on my shopping list!

Well this is it for this "Things I Love Thursday!" Let me know of any items that I may be interested in and I may feature them here! Thanks for reading!
