The Gypsy Boho Fashion Phenomenon

It's unlikely that you missed it, but in the past ten or so years eclectic ethnic has swept the nation with a phenomenal speed. Still, to me, the world was about 30 years behind. I love the so called hippie look of the sixties and, to this day, never miss an opportunity to wear something that is totally Bohemian. I was already hooked on the look when along came Stevie Nicks and took the Gypsy Boho look to a whole new dimension.

So, with this in mind, it should come as no surprise that at
Enchanted Jewelry & Collectibles we offer many pieces of Gypsy Boho style jewelry as well as several pieces of Gypsy Boho style clothing accessories . If you are in the mood for some earrings you might like to take a look at these Gypsy Boho Sterling Silver Garnet Heshi Fringe Earrings ...

Listen For My Bell

Unfortunately I cannot remember where the following came from but it is one of my favorites so I thought I would post it. I believe that it is very meaningful...

Listen For My Bell

Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it. From a distance, each looks like every other horse. But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing...

One of the horses is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him. This alone is amazing.

If nearby and listening, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field. Attached to her halter is a small bell. It lets her blind friend know where she is, so he can follow her.

As you stand and watch these two friends, you'll see how she is always checking on him, and that he will listen for her bell and then slowly walk to where she is, trusting that she will not lead him astray. When she returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, she stops occasionally and looks back, making sure her friend isn't too far behind to hear the bell.

Like the owners of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges. He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need.

Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who God places in our lives. Other times we are the guide horse, helping others see.

Good friends are like this. You don't always see them, but you know they are always there. Please listen for my bell and I'll listen for yours.

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle"

Where Does That Distinctive Cobalt Blue Glass Color Come From?

Cobalt Blue glassware and collectible pieces have been around for a long time but just where does that distinctive color come from?

Georg Brandt, a Swedish chemist who is often credited with isolating cobalt around 1735, was able to show that cobalt itself was the source of the blue color in glass. The color had previously been thought to be caused by bismuth which is often found with cobalt. Much of the world’s production of this blue compound was produced during the 19th century by a single producer in Norway.

While Brandt might be credited with isolating cobalt, the color was used long before that. Discoveries show that it was used to color glass much earlier. Exploration of wreck of a trading vessel off the Turkish coast near the town of Ulaburun turned up a glass ingot of this special color which was cast in the 14th century BC.

The oldest cobalt-colored glass which have been uncovered to date was from the period of 1550-1291 BC. It is not known were the coloring compounds were obtained.

Cobalt compounds have been used for centuries to give glass, glazes, and ceramics this rich color. It has been detected in Egyptian sculpture and Persian jewelry from the third millennium BC.

At Enchanted Jewelry & Collectibles we absolutely love Cobalt Blue glass . For instance, we offer this beautiful Set of 4 Cobalt Blue Glass Stemless Wine Glasses for entertaining your guests.

We also have a charming Cobalt Blue Glass Lamp Shade Covered Candle Holder to decorate your home in warmth and charm.

We have many other collectible pieces also along with many home decor ideas. Of course, there is always my first passion...the jewelry .

Please stop by and visit us sometime...we'd love to see you.

Many thanks to Cobalt Blue Glassware for sharing their information with us.

Celebrating The Natural Beauty Of The Horse

There is not much in this world that is more beautiful, graceful and majestic than the horse. Whether they are running at 40 miles an hour along a race track or running free in the wild with their long, gorgeous manes and tales floating in the wind there is little that can compare to the awe of observing one doing what it loves to They are much more than creatures who run however. If you allow them they will be your best friend...asking nothing more than something to eat, a dry place to sleep and perhaps a small amount of love. In return they will give you a lifetime of loyalty and love without question or doubt.

This beautiful country that we live in was built on the back of many horses. They have worked for us, gone into battle with us and died for us. They have given us countless hours of pleasure and happiness. They have loved us and trusted us. There is no question about this, we need to do the right thing for these horses...ALL horses.

This spring to enable everyone to remember all horses everywhere Enchanted Jewelry & Collectibles is offering several horse themed items . We have some beautiful jewelry including this gorgeous Sterling Silver Galloping Horse Pendant Necklace

along with this Sterling Silver Turquoise Heshi Running Horse Necklace .

For those of you who believe (as I do) that a horse shoe is lucky we offer this Sterling Silver CZ Horse Shoe Pendant Necklace .

For those of you that appreciate horse themed home decor we offer this Triple Horseshoes Hanging Wall Picture Photo Frames

and also this Bold Wild Mustang Stallion Horse Fleece Blanket

along with many other items for your home .

Please stop by and see us at Enchanted Jewelry & Collectibles to help us celebrate the majesty of the horse. Remember...Let A Horse Whisper In Your Ear And Breath On Your Heart...Your Soul Will Never Be The Same.

We would also like to thank the powers that be for bringing all of the horses home safe and sound in each and every race that was run today.

Now...on to Baltimore in two weeks...
