    I REALLY love the first too (grammar t-shirt and book stack earrings), but being pretty involved at, I LOVE the chess set! I think what’s really cool is you don’t know how quickly you have to play since the room temperature dictates it! lol

    These are great! I may not always use the correct grammar, but I try, and I definitely silently correct others. And I cannot tell you how much times my engineer/husband has tried to explain to me just what he does for a living. Each time my eyes begin to glaze over and I get that deer in the headlights look!

    I want the periodic table shower curtain too!

    I hear you, Mishele. Sudipta did a great job picking these out! And, Donna, I’ve seen the chest set advertised with a chef’s torch!

      Yeah, I went to the link and it’s one of the pics! lol I also found a link which had people getting creative with the molds, using them for chocolate, etc., making edible chessboards with pieces on cakes. I just love it! 😀
