Happy 7th!

It’s our lucky number seven. Seven years of marital bliss. Actually, it’s our fantaversary, not our anniversary. But this is the day we celebrate.

According to the strange and twisted people who invented the list of what to get each other for each year you are married, your seventh anniversary is the year you give wool and copper as gifts. So I’ve picked out some items to consider for anniversary presents for Big Daddy. Which do you think he’ll like best?



These lovely copper roses are just his style...


What man isn't into oversized, a-symetrical copper rings?


Nothing says "manly" like a swirly copper money clip.


Every man needs a wine bottle blow torch tiki light!


This copper bird reminds me of Clash Of the Titans for some reason. I'm sure he would appreciate the flashback properties of this bird, as well as its practical applications.




A bag of copper runes can be helpful for traveling to Middle Earth.



And a giant copper boil is on every man's wish list.


And then there's wool....


If he's feeling nostalgic for 1991, try this wool and leather jacket.


This is listed as "An Authentic Civil War Blanket." Authentic? Like it's actually from 1863? Hmmmm... In the immortal words of Inigo Mantoya, I do not think that word means what you think it means.


And if all else fails, if all these other presents don't cut it, I'll pull out the pièce de résistance. I'm know this fabulous bear will be an item he'll treasure always. And in case he's in doubt as to why I'm giving him a teddy bear, the shirt spells it right out. (The shirt is, however, made of polyester. Classic.)


Well, I'm sure he'd love any of these. And only the best for my wonderful husband on this most special of anniversaries. Er, fantaversaries.

Here's to seven more amazing years, Sweetie. (After that, we'll talk.)

I think the first thing in every wedding planning book should be the advice "don't plan your wedding near any holidays, including birthdays!"

Happy Anniversary! I've heard that if you can survive marriage for more than 7 years without gettign divorced your chances of surviving go way up. So, good job making it this far!

Love to you both on your faux-June wedding! (Do your friends know the real reason you got married in February, but not on Valentine's?)

Is that grey hair I see on Big Daddy's temples? Now WHO do you suppose gave him that?!

Happy one! (or seven) I gave my hubby a copper bracelet that matched with one that I had---well---it was a manly bracelet---you know---those cool copper ones?

Love the pic of you two---your blouse is gorgeous!!

Awwww Happy Love Day. And now I officially feel old. You've been married for only 7 years. I think I am ancient.

Oh, and go with the owl. Love it!
