Give Her A Beautiful 24K Gold And Red Crystal Rose


A lovely rose made of red crystal and 24k gold by Matashi.Real roses are beautiful, but they fade and have to be thrown out. This beautiful 24K Gold and Red Crystal Rose will never fade. It will be just as lovely 20 years from now. Probably a lot longer than that, with proper care.

This is a truly beautiful piece. It has two stems, one to a fully opened rose, and one to a bud. It is very well crafted. The leaves have the little ridges and the small petals under the bloom are there. The whole thing is shiny gold, with that lovely red crystal in the center.

Gold and Crystal Rose from Matashi Crystals.

The rose is bigger than I expected it to be. The dimensions are: 4.1 x 2.7 x 2.5 inches (weighs 4.8 ounces). It is very pretty and shiny. When the light hits the crystal it sparkles. I love it.

Red Crystal and Gold Rose from Matashi Crystals.I had to take it outside and let the sunshine hit it. Any light sparkles on it, but the sun makes it look like the crystal is sort of glowing, and the gold just sparkles. If I was gonna keep it, it would go on one of the window sills, so the light would hit it all the time.

But since my moms birthday is coming up next month, this is going to be one of her gifts. I’m pretty sure she will love it as much as I do.

It would make a lovely gift for Christmas, Mother’s Day, or Valentines Day too. I don’t think there is a woman alive who wouldn’t like it, so any occasion will do. Or none for that matter.

It comes in a very nice box that won’t even need wrapping.

This lovely rose is crafted by Matashi Crystals. They also make a lot of other beautifully crafted items including figurines, music boxes, and tableware.  To check out all their products visit the categories page on the Matashi website.

A Perfect Gift For Book Lovers


A beautiful necklace for book lovers.This lovely necklace is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to read books. Any kind of books.

Most folks who love to read do not have near as much time for reading as they would like.

Even if I spend every waking moment reading it wouldn’t be enough to read every interesting book out there. So the sentiment in this pendant is a perfect fit for those who love to read.

This necklace has an old fashioned vintage look to it. Really pretty. The resin on the face acts as a magnifier, so the print can be read without strain. The chain is nice too.

Books Pendant.

I love this necklace. It is handcrafted.

It also comes in a nice gift box, so you don’t even really have to wrap it, unless you like doing that. I am not good at wrapping myself, so I really like the box.

Necklace from Craft Street Design.

You can buy one of your own from Craft Street Design. They have other pendants with different sayings, and they also have framed prints that look pretty nice.

Check them out on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Do You Love Spring Flowers?


I love spring flowers. I wish they would last longer.

I found a beautiful statement necklace that is crafted to look like spring flowers. So you can have your flowers all year, and even wear them.

So even in the winter you can look like spring. Add some perfume and you will smell like spring too.

The necklace is from IDGirl Jewelry and comes in a very pretty box, so it is all ready for gift giving. It would make a wonderful gift for Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas, Birthdays, or just any old day at all.

Spring Flower Necklace from IDGirl Jewelry.It sparkles in the sunshine. It has a lot of different colors in it so it will match pretty much anything you wear.

Me wearing the Spring Flowers Necklace from IDGirl Jewelry.

It looked really nice on me. It is a bit heavy, so that will take some getting used to if you don’t normally wear heavy jewelry.

It has a bit of extra chain on the hook so you can make it a bit looser if you want.

IDGirl Jewelry is hypoallergenic. They say it is lead free and nickel free, so it won’t turn your neck green.

I gave it to my mom for Mother’s Day. She really liked it. She said that someone took a lot time to do all the detailing on it. I agree.

ActionFly Newtons Cradle Balance Balls Are Fun


ActionFly Newtons Cradle.The ActionFly Newtons Cradle Balance Balls are really fun to watch. The only problem with them is that if you are not careful, you will sit and play with them half the day without realizing it.

The balls show how a pendulum works, as well as demonstrating the Laws of Conservation of Momentum and Energy.

Homeschools could use one for teaching about motion or how pendulums work. Probably several other things that I don’t remember anymore. School was a long time ago for me.

This Newtons Cradle looks really nice too, it has a zig-zag design for a more contemporary look. It is really shiny too.

It is a great conversation piece. I have it on my table and everyone who has come in the house so far has asked about it, and played with it for a few minutes.

It would make a great gift for homeschools, or teachers, or just your average geek.

Have A Lot Of Broken Glasses In Your Past?


I do. I don’t even want to try to count how many I broke all by myself. I have had to replace several of the glass tumblers we use this past year.

That is one reason I really like this Plastic Tumbler Set from Scandinovia. They won’t break! Not without you stomping on them or running them over with the car.

Scandinovia tumbler.They are a small enough for kids to use at 8oz but also big enough for other people. They come in sets of four and are different colors.

Scandinovia Tumblers in the box.The colors are blue, yellow, pink, and green. There was one to match each bathroom, and my kitchen. So right now I’m using them in the bathrooms for rinsing after brushing.

The green matches my big bath and the yellow matches the guest bath. That leaves two for any grand-kids or guests who need an unbreakable glass.

Tumbler from Scandinovia.

I like that these do not really feel like plastic. They have some heft to them like regular glasses.

You can wash them in the dishwasher or by hand, and they stack easily.

These would be a great gift for anyone with kids, and they come in a really nice box.

Trashcans Make Useful Gifts

5L brushed stainless steel step trash can.I know trash cans are not usually what people think of when they are looking for a gift, but they are very useful. Especially for young adults or anyone just starting their own household. Or someone who lost all their things in a fire.

A really nice one like this 5L brushed stainless steel step trash can, would make a wonderful housewarming gift.

I would have loved to be given one of these when I got my first apartment. We didn’t have anything, and I was scrounging things from all my family and friends and flea markets.

For a long time we only had a couple of really ugly buckets. They worked, but they were not really nice.

The trash can and the bucket that goes in it.I love this step trash can. It has a bucket inside with a handle so you can just lift that out to dump the trash. You don’t even have to put a trash bag in, unless you want to.

I really like the step function. The trash stays hidden, until you step on it to open it. The lid also keeps any smells inside the can.

It is easy to use. Just step on the lever and the top pops up.

Step Trash Can with the bucket inside.

I have two of these. The smaller one is in my guest bath. The bigger one in the main bath.

They do make even larger ones, for those who need something bigger. In my case there are usually only two of us making trash so we don’t need anything really big.

These work just fine.

Beautiful Flatware Makes Dinner Special


Distinctly Home Prism Flatware Set.Beautiful flatware can make any table setting look great. The Distinctly Home Prism 45-Piece Flatware Set will definitely help make dinner special. Especially holiday dinners.

It has a lovely prism design and a mirror polish finish.

The setting includes service for 8, and a hostess set. The hostess set has one solid serving spoon, a slotted serving spoon,  a sugar shell, and butter spreader.

I love this set of flatware. It came in a pretty display box.

Distinctly Home Prism Flatware box.

I took some of the pieces out to compare with my old set.

My old flatware and the new Prism flatware.My old forks are bigger and my old spoons are smaller.

The weight is about the same. The new ones are not heavy. We tried them out and they are easy to eat with.

Unfortunately for me, my mom came over while I was looking at the new flatware, and she fell in love with it.  So I decided to give it to her for her birthday, since I had not yet figured out what gift to get for her.

She is planning to use it for our holiday dinners this year. Her old “best” set has pieces missing, and it was also a bit banged up, after almost 40 years of usage.

She is really happy with the new set. She loves the Prism design.

This flatware is made of stainless steel and is, of course, dishwasher safe.

Great Gift For A Person Who Loves To Cook


Chefs Limited Cooking Utensil Set.This 6 Piece Kitchen Utensil Set from Chefs Limited would make a great gift for anyone who loves to cook.

It is good for anyone who only cooks under protest too. Those folks might even appreciate it more since it is easier to cook with proper utensils.

This set comes with a rotating stand for hanging the utensils on, so you can easily grab whichever item you need.

Promo picture of the 6 utensils in the Chefs Limited Set.

The set includes a Spaghetti Server, Slotted Spoon, Flipper Spatula, Whisk, Potato Masher,  and a Soup Ladle.

They are bigger than they look in these pictures.

Chefs Limited Flipper Spatula being used by me on hamburger patties.I used the spatula on hamburgers and it has a nice big handle that is easy to hold, and it is plenty big enough and sturdy enough to flip burgers easy.

I have also used the slotted spoon to stir and drain french fries.

My Chefs Limited Slotted Spoon and french fries.I don’t really get why it is called a slotted spoon though. It doesn’t have slots, it has holes. But either way it works.

I have also used the soup ladle, but didn’t get a picture of it. I love the soup ladle. It is big and holds almost enough for a full serving. It probably would be a full serving for anyone except a hungry man who wants his dinner and plenty of it.

I have not had a chance to use the spaghetti server, masher, or the whisk yet, but I will.

This is a gorgeous set of utensils and it matches my kitchen too!

The Chefs Limited Utensil Set on my kitchen counter.

These utensils are made with FDA approved Nylon Heads, and are heat resistant up to 410 degrees.

They have those little stands on the bottom of the handle too that keep heads from touching the counter (or pan) if you lay them down. I really like that.

Along with all that good stuff you also get a 100% money back guarantee.

Please follow Chefs Limited on Facebook.
