Stove in a Can Review + Giveaway!

I did a post about the Stove in a Can last week and here are my pictures of us using this awesome invention!!  I was amazed with how fast it boiled water!  It took about 5 minutes!  To start it was as simple as crumbling and clean up was just as easy!  Especially in comparison to building a fire the normal way.

This is such a great gift idea!  But only after you get one for yourself.  Whether it's for peace of mind for an emergency or for camping and fun.

All you do to start it (after fully reading the instructions of course :)) is crumble up as much as you need of the fuel cell while inside the can and then light it up.  --included are waterproof matches but we used our handy lighter since we were using it at home.

Then you put the ring and the lid on and place your pot on top.  Super easy and it was boiling in minutes!

This is my son saying "cheese" if you can believe it...  When you're all done you take off the ring and smother the fire with the lid...DONE  The Stove in a Can sells for as low as $29.99 and never expires!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
