    Shorter and colder days make me feel sad

    I used to get full on depressed during the fall and winter due to the very short daylight periods. Moving to a very peaceful area with wildlife and diet changes have really helped. I actually look forward to how peaceful it is here in the winter and start feeding the birds in December. During...

    What is the most adventurous thing you ever did?

    Told my hubby yes when he said we should get married one week after meeting him. It was love at first sight and I threw caution to the wind. After over 20 years of marriage I have no regrets.

    Beautiful and a perfect color for this time of year.

    Am I going to regret keeping this eternity band?

    Wear it and enjoy it. The day may come that it no longer fits. You can re-sell it pre-loved. Even if you get half of what you paid, there is no real loss because you wore it and enjoyed it for all that time.

    No Spend November

    I'm inspired by your post Miss Stephanie Lynn. I stopped myself from purchasing a jewelry item after reading your post. I really don't need it but want it so bad which means it's an emotional purchase.

    What is the most selfish thing you do just for yourself?

    Pearls. I love to collect them. Necklaces: 15 Tahitian, 9 blue Akoya, 4 SS, and over a dozen freshwater. It's crazy because you can't re-sell them like colored gemstones or diamonds.

    Name one thing you love about being older

    I like that I tend to actually learn from my mistakes now instead of making the same ones over and over again. I find I have more patience and I am more open to possibilities. I think years and years of experiencing loss has taught me to be grateful for things I took for granted before.

    Big blue beauty arrived today.

    Lovely! I can't wait to see the pendant completed.

    When you get it home and realize, it might look weird - style help?!

    Both are beautiful. I think the chain might be a bit delicate. I would add a more substantial chain or if I was wearing either with a T-shirt I would probably put them on a silk cord.

    Any vegans?

    I don't have any Vegan advice for you Begonia but wish you success in your new diet. I radically changed my diet for health reasons and can say that diet can be key in how you feel both physically and mentally. I thought the reason I was healing slower and suffering aches and pains was because...

    Floral diamond necklace. This use to be a ring.

    Beautiful! I think your gorgeous necklace will inspire some forum members to do exactly as you have done with some of their unworn rings. I like how icy white the necklace is and how it appears both floral and to my eye snowflake like.

    You can only have ONE ring, which one would you keep?

    @StephanieLynn- Thank You! The diamond is a 1.73 OEC.

    You can only have ONE ring, which one would you keep?

    I would probably keep this one- even with the wonky setting.

    My re-set! 4.9 cttw 3-stone antique cushion ring, by Mark T and CVB

    Would you rather have a second bathroom or in unit laundry?

    One person only needs one bathroom. I would choose the laundry unit.

    That is a very gorgeous diamond pendant. Love the buttery warmth.

    Anyone used chinese herbs ?

    I use Lysimachia for gall bladder stones. That was an unfortunate side effect of weight loss and it has worked wonderfully. I keep Yunnan Baiyao on hand for bleeding. I am accident prone.

    Impulse purchases (not just bling related)

    Yep. I go in phases and it usually always coincides with season changes or times of stress. This fall I focused on the house, redecorating and replacing appliances. I also tend to de-clutter during these times, cleaning closets, the garage and basement.

    Somebody's Gotta Buy This Stone!

    It's a pretty sapphire and pretty ring in general. I have noticed purple and pink sapphires seem to take longer to sell than blues and the ring is IMHO dainty which is also a factor. The right buyer will come along eventually. :)

    Homemade sprouts - Nom Nom Nom

    That's a great idea Kenny. I won't buy sprouts from the store after reading how they may have very high bacteria counts.

    I hope no one falls for this

    Nail polish and super glue? Seriously though- I usually view these "selling for a friend" listings with a good amount of healthy suspicion unless it is from a known forum member.

    Lavender Spinel Reset!

    I think the new setting really suits your lovely spinel. I like how you are wearing it paired with a vintage band.

    Show me your Pearls!

    I got bored last night and decided to shorten a white FW pearl rope into two necklaces. I added Hematite beads for some holiday bling and to make them a bit less formal. Shortened my ripple pearl necklace and added some Tahitians to the flameball pearl necklace. Also- added a pic of a darker...

    Another looking for a blue akoya - who do I contact at PP?

    PP's website lists a contact phone number. See if you can talk to Jeremy directly. I agree he is very gracious and I am sure he will be responsive to your request.

    If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one thing to eat

    I think some people like me are sensitive to carbs- especially flour. I noticed this phenomena when I was a teen. I once was eating my way through a whole loaf of rye bread while drinking milk and wondered why I couldn't stop eating it. My body never registered "full" stomach. I have the same...

    If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one thing to eat

    I think I would need to choose a dish that makes me feel good so it would be grilled vegetables with chicken. I stopped eating pasta, rice and bread because those foods make me hungrier. It's amazing to me that eating a plate of pasta leaves me still hungry while eating a plate of veggies and...

    Hi Jennifer. They look like imitation pearls.
