Every Lady Should Have a Pearl Necklace

I have three. Mine are not real, but I love them.

Every lady needs a pearl necklace for those special occasions. It doesn’t matter if they are faux or real. Really nice white pearls look lovely on a dark outfit. I just finished listing two on my Etsy site that I had restored.  As I was looking at them to describe them I realized how beautiful they were. I imagined who might wear them. You? Or someone you would give them to?

The two I listed are not real oyster pearls, but they are vintage and they have a luster that doesn’t show their age. Which, as a lady, I can’t divulge. I really don’t know it, anyway. But I loved re-stringing them and recapturing their loveliness.

These two beautiful pieces are priced at $11.97 each with free shipping in the US. All my necklaces are shipped in an organza pouch so that they are protected in shipping, and might be placed in a jewelry box with all your other pieces. One of them would also be a charming gift for someone you appreciate and love.

You’ll find them at http://mizmlu@etsy.com.

60 Watt Dimmable Antique Reproduction Light Bulbs

60 Watt Dimmable Antique Reproduction Light BulbsI want to share with you, MizMlu’s readers, a product I discovered that perhaps some of you have already seen. I reviewed it in a manner it is not advertised for, yet made a perfect match for me.

The product is a 60 watt Edison style light bulb. After I ordered, received and tested this bulb, I found out there are many of these out there. This one it turns out is for me, a little bit more beautiful. The light from it is warm and romantic.

I used this bulb to light a photographic studio shot. It added warmth to the shot, like candle light, without the dangerous flame.

The filaments glow when the light is turned on. I photographed the bulb too.

You can find the bulb on Amazon.

 

My gift to you

Protect your Jewelry with a pouch

I just received a package of beautiful organza jewelry pouches from China.  From this day on every necklace and bracelet I sell on my Etsy site will be placed in one of these pouches at no extra charge.  They come in 6 different colors and will be suitable for gift giving or just as a little protection in your jewelry box.  These pouches are transparent so the jewelry can be identified without opening the pouch.

I am very pleased to be able to add this feature to my Etsy shop and hope that my customers enjoy the extra care and thought I give to them.  Come see my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.

I just listed the jewelry associated with the Astrological sign of Taurus.  You’ll find the jewelry for that sign in the Sections portion of my shop. Maybe you’ll see the perfect piece for Spring.

 

Why I like my etsy store

My Etsy store is my source for some extra income as well as the satisfaction I get from the responses  from the people who purchase my items.  My handcrafted jewelry is diverse as well as colorful and unique.  When I make a piece of jewelry I imagine who will wear it and where, at her job, a party, or just for fun.  My jewelry covers all sorts of possibilities.  Some are dramatic, some simple, most are brilliantly colorful, some for evening wear, some for casual wear, but all are original designs.  I tend to like the dramatic items best.

Most of my time is spent on the design, putting the beads together to best show off their beauty. I am fortunate to have a variety of sources for unusual beads and materials to make them into a piece of jewelry.  I get most of  my  ideas from the beads themselves.   I have also  helped friends to get started making their own jewelry. This occupation is my pleasure.

Although sales have been slow these past few months it doesn’t stop me from looking for new ideas, new beads, and new ways to promote my Etsy shop.  I list almost all my creations on Pinterest and some of my  creations are also available in Classifiedads.com http://bit.ly/Oh2WzL   and I have an Ebay site for a few.

In a few weeks I will be promoting a new category on Etsy, Baby Booties.  I have crocheted 5 sets and am just waiting for them to be photographed.   I have no camera so I have to wait for my daughter to take the pictures for me.   I hope they will be well received.  I will announce their promotion here.

Please take a look at my Etsy shop.   The items for sale are not just jewelry.  I have vintage items that belonged to older members of my family and decided to pass them on to someone who will appreciate them as much as I did.   In addition I have included some other types of creations, such as a beaded purse, a knitted baby afghan, a hand painted blouse, a vintage hat, a macrame belt and much more.

Have fun with my shop!

Do You Dream?

I accidentally found a very informative and interesting site a few days ago.  It is called Lifelong Health and the url is http://www.lifelonghealth.com/

Once you get onto the site you will be hooked.  You won’t want to leave.  There is so much to see there, articles on every aspect of life.  I am copying one here because it is the one that drew me to the site.  It is about dreams.  I dream every night, every time I am asleep and some are disturbing.  They remain in my thoughts long after I waken.  I found the article informative and interesting.   The following is from the owner of the site.

Hi, I’m Lois  Trader

I am a two-time survivor of a life-threatening disease and a woman who has lived through bankruptcy, not only financially but physically, psychologically and spiritually. Now I’m a successful, positive, driven woman.

Being a physically fit woman at 47 years of age, my life was changed in a heart beat. My personal journey of being diagnosed with heart disease and learning to live with it has inspired me to help others who are also concerned about their health. No matter where you are in your journey, let’s work together to live the best life possible.

I’m excited to get to know you here on Lifelong Health. I look forward to getting to know you and learning together.

 Do you remember your dreams? Do you understand their meaning? Do you wish your dream could last longer. Are you the only one who is having long vivid dreams? Below are four interesting facts about dreams.

Crazy dream equals emotion: While it can be hard to believe that an oddball dream about your mother, a circus and a snowstorm can have any bearing on real life, there may be symbolism and potential meaning to be mined in every dream—you just have to look for it, says Harvard-trained psychotherapist Jeffrey Sumber. “The meaning of our dreams oftentimes relates to things we need to understand about ourselves and the world around us,” he says. Instead of shrugging off strange dreams, think about how they make you feel. “We tend to dismiss these dreams due to the strange components, yet it is the feeling we have in these dreams that matters most,” he explains. “Sometimes the circus and the snowstorm are just fillers that allow us to process the range of emotions we feel about our mother and give us the necessary distraction so we can actually experience that spectrum of emotion.”

Tons of Dreams: It’s not just one dream per night, but rather dozens of them, say experts—you just may not remember them all. “We dream every 90 minutes throughout the night, with each cycle of dreaming being longer than the previous,” explains Lauri Quinn Loewenberg, a dream expert. “

The first dream of the night is about 5 minutes long and the last dream you have before awakening can be 45 minutes to an hour long.” It is estimated that most people have more than 100,000 dreams in a lifetime.

Dream after you are awake? After a vivid dream it can be hard to fully wake up. It can be hard to concentrate until you get that dream replaced with reality. Or have you ever woken up from such a beautiful, perfect dream that you wished you could go back to sleep to soak it all up? This is how you can. Just lie still—don’t move a muscle—and you can remain in a semi-dreamlike state for a few minutes. “The best way to remember your dreams is to simply stay put when you wake up,” says Loewenberg. “Remain in the position you woke up in, because that is the position you were dreaming in. When you move your body, you disconnect yourself from the dream you were just in seconds ago.”

Same dream over and over again. Loewenberg suggests looking for underlying messages in recurring dreams so that you can rid yourself of them.
For example, a common recurring nightmare people have involves losing or cracking their teeth. For this dream, she recommends that people think about what your teeth and your mouth represent. “To the dreaming mind, your teeth, as well as any part of your mouth, are symbolic of your words,” she says. “Paying attention to your teeth dreams helps you to monitor and improve the way you communicate.”
