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.

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.

Mother’s Day Blessings

The Bible says that children are a blessing.

So all you moms are already blessed, even if it is hard to remember, when the dirty clothes are piling up, everyone wants something different to eat, homework needs to be done, no one wants to go to bed on time, and hubby is upset cause you are too tired to pay attention to him.

Mother’s Day is when everyone is supposed to make a special effort to remember that Moms are also a blessing. After all without her you wouldn’t exist. And if you are still alive, she managed to raise you without killing you, so far.

I call that a major accomplishment myself. So we make mom breakfast, and/or give her gifts (or at least a hug) on this day, just to show we appreciate all she has done for us.

I have this cup for my mom:

Best Mom Ever Cup

Because she is the Best Mom Ever.

I also have this necklace:

IDGirl Statement Necklace

It sparkles in the sunshine. I think she will like it. Probably won’t wear it very often because she doesn’t get dressed up very often anymore, but that is besides the point.

It is something different, and unusual, and pretty. Special. Like her.

What are you doing for Mother’s Day?

A Mother Who Reads Is A Wonderful Thing


My mom was a reader long before I came along. At least I can’t remember a time when she didn’t have something she was reading.

She taught me to read before I started school.  And she read to me every night when I was little. Sometimes the same thing over and over….The City Mouse And The Country Mouse was a favorite.

She also made a lot of my clothes back when I was little. She didn’t stop doing that till I was about 14 or 15 I think.

She taught me how to cook and keep house too. She is still teaching me some things because up till recently I wasn’t really much interested in cooking.

My mom was a beautician for years but she retired when we moved and now she only does hair for family, friends, and neighbors.

She is really good at figuring out how make a place look great. She helped my cousin with her decorating and she helped me with figuring out how to arrange my place.

She is pretty good at listening and just hanging out too.

She does have an addiction though. Yep Farmville got her. I’m not sure she is going to recover from that.

I love her anyway. Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day Flower Bouquet Review

Mother’s Day Flower Bouquet Review

My Mother's Day bouquet from From You Flowers'.From You Flowers’ sent me these lovely Mother’s Day Flowers for review.  It came from a local Florist called Heather’s Way Flowers & Plants located in Jonesboro, Ar.

This is one of thier most popular Mother’s Day arrangements and is called Floral Celebration For Mom.

This arrangement contains lilies and roses and a few other flowers.  As you can see it is lovely even in my blurred picture!

The close up pictures are not so blurry! I have no idea what kind of flower that big red one is but it just sets the whole thing off perfectly!

I also loved the way they put the yellow ribbon on the vase. The yellow and red toghether are just so cheerful. And the other colors just add to it.

The flowers smell good too. Not really strong but they do have a nice smell.

I took the bouquet over to my mom of course! I was tempted to let her think I had bought them for her…but I didn’t.

She thought they were beautiful too! She has them on a table in her kitchen where everyone can see them. She especially liked the vase they came in. She said it was a really good one.

You can get same day delivery on many of their flower arrangements  and they can deliver just about anywhere in the United States.

My flowers arrived the afternoon I was told that they would be shipped. So even if you wait till the last minute (which I’m NOT recommending- Mom will know!) you can still get flowers delivered in time for Mother’s Day!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
