1st wedding anniversary gift: Update - got it!!!
Our WEdding anniversary in on September 14th and i already ordered the gift. I'm so excited!!! Now i'm waiting for the package to arrive from Australia.
This is it! Hubby is a collector and i've decided to get him this special gift, even though it's expensive. But i'd rather give up on other holidays' gifts so i can get him that one! What do you think?

If he collects such things he will be rapt. What year was this model made? I know it celebrates a '39 car. The Franklin Mint site is interesting..and these objects can accrue in value amazingly! Did YOU ask for anything special.hmmMMMM?

He said that he's getting me something and that it took 2 months just to come up with the idea, which means it's something really special. So i'm holding myself not to tickle him and make him tell me!!! This model is from the late '90s, but the concept of the car itself is amazing! I'm also a big car enthusiast, though i'm not such a specialist as he is... I think that for the '30s this design was outstanding!

Indeed! Because it could also be out of James Bond in a way too....I'm not that car knowledgeable..but do you know the Orca? A friend of mine has a friend (in turn) who has one...goes all goosey over it LOL

Whhooohoooo...I can't wait to hear what you got! Doing something special that night? Have you learned to play the lute so you can strum quietly while he massages your feet? LOL

Wow, this Orca is interesting! Reminds me of Pagani Zonda, but more curvy and puffy... The anniversary is on Friday, which is great! We wanted to go somewhere for the weekend, but decided that to find a babysitter for the dog and get my parents to feed the cats for 1-2 nights is too much trouble. So, i think we'll have a romantic dinner out ... And just spend some time together, becausr we work a lot and as much as we try to make time for each other, we're mostly tired

I came out of the lift tonight in my apartment block and was confronted with the sounds of a woman loudly expressing her appreciation and love. *shakes head* LOL

cute!!! at first I thought you bought him a *real* car!!! then I saw it was just the perspective in the picture. I' bet he will love it if he likes cars! We are coming up on our 13th in October and I'm still thinking of what to do.
