A Special Thank You, and One Cool Gift Idea



This morning I got a wonderful email stating this blog was featured on a list of gift giving idea blogs, at As the Cracker Head Crumbles. I must say a special thank you, and ask you all if you get a minute, to check his blog, and see all the sites he has placed on the list. Especially if you have not started shopping yet, you are running out of time. He chose to show my Guardian Angel pin, available for purchase in my Etsy store. My mom makes these lovely pins, and I place them in my store for her. It is a bisque cameo set on a goldtone pin. If you have a Guardian Angel in your life, or you would just like to wear one on your shoulder, this is a lovely gift idea.

Then I have to share this simply cool gadget I bought yesterday, for our home computer. If you read any of my other blogs, you know my kids are bug fanatics, me not so much. But Jewelry Television was selling these cool bug computer mouses, and I simply had to get one for Christmas gifts. I wanted the scorpion, but they were all sold out, so I got this cool beetle. There is also a spider, crab, and I think starfish. They light up, and are real working computer mouses. I just thought I would share it, in case someone needs a cool gift idea, and doesn't know what to get.

Blue Topaz and Blue Sapphire Ring

This sterling silver, size 5 1/4 ring features a large round Blue Topaz gemstone, with four of the loveliest blueberry blue sapphires on either side. The center stone is a whopping 9mm round, that is pretty big. This could actually be a blue zircon, but I am thinking blue topaz because of the size. It is a real, natural gemstone. Blue Topaz, and Blue Zircon are the birthstones for the month of December. If you are interested in this piece, it is for sale in my Etsy store. I offer combined shipping, and a free layaway service, so check all my beautiful pieces. Christmas is coming you know.

December's Birthstone Blue Zircon

Blue Zircon is the birthstone for the month of December. Some people use Blue Topaz, as an alternate due to the difficulty in finding Blue Zircon. There are some who also use Tanzanite, as a universal birthstone. Below is a short, but cool video, all about Blue Zircon.

Attention All You Garnet Babies

Hello all you women born in January. Here is a lovely Garnet, sterling silver, size 6 ring. This ring is fancy enough with the scroll work, but not so fancy that you could not wear it every day. Garnet is a very durable gemstone, and is safe for every day wear. This particular garnet is a 6mm round, and even has a purplish hue to it, in certain lighting, making me think it may be Rhodolite Garnet, a rare form of Garnet. Since I can not verify that, is listed only as a Garnet. This lovely ring is available for sale in my Etsy store, for 19.99 Be sure to check out all my other great items, as I offer combined shipping, and a free layaway plan.

Picture Jasper Big and Bold Necklace

Oh how I love Picture Jasper. It is a completely natural gemstone, and is so earthy, and natural. This is a huge heart shaped Picture Jasper gemstone bead, that I made a wire wrap bail for, and then used gold tone fancy scroll jump rings, to make the chain. It has a magnetic closure, for easy putting on, and removing. Even though it is bid, and bold, it is not at all heavy on the neckline. It feels very comfortable, and looks stunning.

Well it is Fun Friday, again. This week I am featuring Zuda Gays Etsy Store. She make polymer clay beads, and they are simply lovely. I was born in August, and the Sunflower is the flower for that month. I love Sunflowers, they are so bright, and cheery. These beads are large, and would make a lovely focal bead, for any of your jewelry creations. She has lots of different types, and she will do personal requests. So if there is something you would like to have made out of polymer clay, into a bead, drop her a note, and maybe she can do it for you. Her prices are very reasonable, and I did not find them to be overly expensive at all. If you like unique, and different jewelry pieces, be sure to check out her rings. I love them! I love the blue, and brown color combo. It is such a lovely color combination, and it looks so lovely on her hand. Be sure to stop by Zuda Gays store, and show her some love.

Huge Pear Shape Golden Citrine Ring

Citrine, the color of sunshine. Citrine is the birthstone for November. This ring is a sterling silver, size 4 1/2, featuring a 10 carat plus Citrine gemstone. It is flawless, with excellent color. Citrine has a hardness of 7 on the Moh's Hardness Scale, and is usually made by heat treating very pale Amethyst. There are some natural Citrines. They are usually a very soft, lovely pastel yellow color, very similar to Imperial Topaz, or Yellow Labradorite. This ring is a knock out, and is available for purchase in my Etsy store. I combine shipping, and offer a free layaway plan.

Is It Citrine Or Imperial Topaz

Citrine is the birthstone for November. While it is a lovely yellow gemstone, Imperial Topaz, which is a yellow natural form of Topaz has the much higher value. Watch this cool video from the Antiques Road Show, and see how one woman became very lucky. You won't be disappointed. If you are like me, and have a bunch of yellow gemstones in your collection, don't just assume they are Citrine. You might want to have them tested.

Fun Friday Grandma Lindas House Etsy Shop

This week for Fun Friday, I get to feel like a kid again. Today I am featuring the Etsy shop Grandma Lindas House. She has the cutest, Barbie doll outfits ever. I loved Barbie when I was a little girl. I am aging myself, but I had the first jointed Barbie that they made. I loved her so much I cut her hair LOL. My mother was not happy. Between my sisters, and I we must have had every Barbie, and accessory ever made, up until like 1985, when my youngest sister outgrew them. I absolutely love this Barbie outfit pictured. Is it not cool? She looks so glamorous. I have a five year old daughter who is just getting into Barbie now. I hope she will love her as much as I did.

Grandma Lindas House, also offers hats, mittens, scarves, baby outfits, and so much more. Be sure to check out her shop. Winter, and Christmas are both coming, and she has items that would make great gifts.

If you would like your Etsy shop, or craft blog featured on Fun Friday, just leave me a comment, and be sure to leave your store, or blog address.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

More Pink Jewelry Rhodolite Garnet Ring

Did you know Garnet comes in every single variation of color except blue? How cool, and versatile of a gemstone is that? One of my favorites is Rhodolite garnet, with the more pinkish hue to it.

This lovely ring, is a sterling silver 6mmx4mm oval Rhodolite garnet gemstone, surrounded by cz's in a cocktail style ring. This ring is petite enough for every day wear, yet big enough to get noticed. It is a size 6, and available for purchase in my Etsy store. Be sure to check out all my great items, and layaway for Christmas. Garnet is a durable gemstone, with a 7-8 on the Moh's hardness scale.
