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.

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.

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.

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.

Take Those Negative Ions Everywhere

Energy Balance Bracelet.Negative Ions are believed to have a positive effect (on most people anyway).  According to WebMD there is some evidence to support that belief.

I have always believed it anyway. And even if the “evidence” ended up showing it didn’t I would still probably believe it, just because of how I have felt myself during storms, and from stories other people have told about thier experiences.

So, negative ions are A Good Thing.

The makers of the Energy Balance Bracelet say they have come up with a way for you to carry the power of the negative ions around with you.

Each of these bracelets has two negative ion enriched holograms on it. So wearing the bracelet lets you carry the negative ions with you and benefit from them…everywhere you go.

I have no idea if this actually works or not. Even after wearing the bracelet they sent me.

I really like the bracelet. It is the glow in the dark green bracelet, and it is really neat. Most kids (even grown up kids like me) would love it just for the glow in the dark part. I also like the color, because it is a happy color, and looking at it makes me feel good.

They come in lots of different colors, so you can get one to match any (or all) of your outfits, and they are flexible.

Buy your own from the Energy Balance Shop, and be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ too.

Want A Cute Leather Charm Bracelet?

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The sort of thing tweens and teens would love to wear? For that matter just about any women would like it for less formal wear.

It would be especially nice for wearing while boating as one of the charms is an anchor. Than again I have no idea how sea spray might affect it. It shouldn’t be any worse than getting caught in the rain and that can happen to anybody.

Anyway…Penny Auctions Canada sent me a leather charm bracelet to review.

My leather charm bracelet.The bracelet they sent me has four strands, two with charms, one braided, and one plain.

It is pretty sturdy and has a nice hook on one end and a chain on the other so it will fit pretty much anyone.

The materials used to make this bracelet include leather, alloy, wax linen cord, and suede. They have them in different colors too but I really like this blue one.

Jord™ Wood Watches Review

Disclosure : I received a free product to review.

These Jord™ Wood Watches are gorgeous!

I didn’t even know there were watches made out of wood till I saw these. I love the way they look.

They let me pick out one to review. I picked the Fieldcrest in Natural Green. Mainly because I wanted one that either me or my husband could wear.

Picture of the front of the Fieldcrest Natural Green Jord watch. Picture of the back of the Fieldcrest Natural Green Jord watch.








Isn’t that beautiful? I love the look of the wood and it feels nice too. Nice and smooth and I just want to keep touching it.

It looks like I will not get to wear it much if at all. My husband got the mail and grabbed the box before I even had a chance to look at it and put the watch on. All he said to me was “this is mine”.

He did have to adjust the band a bit. It was slightly too loose for him and  even more loose on me.  It is easy to adjust it.  It has little pins or screws that you remove to take out one or more links in the band.

If you don’t want to do it yourself (or don’t have a screwdriver that small) any store that sells watches should have someone able to do it for you.

The Jord™ watch is really well made and seems really sturdy. I would not let my husband wear it out to the farm though. Even if it is sturdy enough to handle the beating it might take out there…I don’t want it damaged.

These wood watches are only splash resistant which means it is ok to wear in the kitchen or on the beach but it shouldn’t be submerged and if gets wet you need to dry it off as soon as possible.

They DO ship internationally and will accept all the major credit/debit cards.

I Love You In 120 Languages Onyx Pendant Review

I Love You In 120 Languages Onyx Pendant Review

I Love You Onyx Pendant from NanoStyle.

This I Love You Onyx Pendant from NanoStyle has the words I Love You written on it in 120 different languages. The words are written in 24kt gold. It also has a heart on it which reinforces the the idea of Love.

It it really pretty. It comes in a nice black box and has a small magnifying glass with it. You need the magnifying glass if you want to actually read the words. They are very small words.

Picture of the I Love You Pendant in the box.

You have to hold the magnifying glass about an inch away from the pendant in order to read the words.  I put the magnifying glass on the chain so I wouldn’t lose it. Besides you need to keep it with the pendant so other people can look at it too.

You might have to take it off to let them see it though. They would have to lean awfully close to you to be able to read the words!

I took a picture of me wearing it. I had to use a mirror and it isn’t the greatest picture I ever took but you can see how the pendant looks.

Picture of I Love You Pendant on me.I really like this necklace. You can get it in a gold setting as well if you prefer. NanoStyle also has a lot of other beautiful cubic zirconia and onyx jewelry including pendants with the Zodiac on them and some with Bible verses inscribed on them.

I particularly like the Musical Note Pendant. The silver with an Opalite stone.  Just in case any of you guys might want to get me a present!

Buying New Wedding Bands

Buying New Wedding Bands

When we got married we didn’t have a lot of money to spend so we went with some cheap wedding bands from a department store which do not match.

I have always wanted to get some better ones that do match.  Besides that both his and mine have stones on them which in some workplaces (food packaging) means they have to be removed while working.  I’m using that as an excuse to look for new ones!

Kranich’s Jewelers have some truly lovely wedding bands. The ArtCarved Wedding Bands are really beautiful.  My favorite so far is the ArtCarved Fondest Wedding Band.ArtCarved Fondest Wedding Band

They also have engagement rings, necklaces, and bracelets.

I don’t wear bracelets or necklaces very much…only for very special occasions like weddings because I tend to break or lose them.  That doesn’t mean I don’t want them though. I saw a few on their site that I would love to have just to look at.

This one for instance :

Ritani Multi Color Gemstone Necklace from Kranich's.

Isn’t that gorgeous? I’m thinking it would make a great present for someone on a very special occasion.

If you are looking for some lovely jewelry for yourself or for a someone you love…this would be a great place to start!



Need Some New Jewelry?

Need Some New Jewelry?

If you need some new unique jewelry, perhaps for Mothers Day,(its not too late!) or for yourself, check out Classic Keepsakes. She has some truly lovely things there. I bought one of these Lilac Crystal Necklaces. I tried to take some pics but they were all blurry.  I can say it looks just as lovely as in the picture here.


There are also several butterfly items. Rings as well as necklaces. I like this one.



There are items in all different colors. It doesn’t show in the picture but the chain also has some little beads near the clasp. It is really nice.


It came in a box with a ribbon around it. It looked really nice. I am very happy with it and will be wearing it out to dinner soon. I’m thinking maybe a brooch to match?
