If ever the description "turning an ugly duckling into a swan" were apt, the diamond could well be described this way. We all know how beautiful they are when they are found in jewelry, but not everyone knows that they were once chunks of ugly dark carbon, which were nestled deep within the earth, or even in volcanoes lava. Eventually, these lovely gemstones find their way to the surface, where they are mined and then transformed into beautiful jewelry items.

Have you ever seen a piece of vintage jewelry which has what look like gunmetal gray rhinestones on it? If so, you are probably looking at a piece of jewelry which is made using what are known as marcasites.

Do you ever get the feeling that you have a “sixth sense” or maybe have really fine-honed intuition about certain things? I’m not talking about vintage items “speaking” to you; I think we’ve all had that happen, and my home is just full of chatty items. I mean, do you ever pick up on “vibes” given off by an item? This is a topic I’ll bet gets discussed a lot; I have never seen any of the “Haunted Antiques”-type television shows; He-Who-Controls-The-Remote doesn’t deign those shows watch-worthy.

There is a scripture in the Bible Proverbs 31:10-31. The verses talks about a wife of noble character who is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, never harm all the days of her life. A little further in the verses it tells how her children rise up and call her blessed and talk of how she gives to the poor because she is a woman who thinks of others and gives of herself.

It is that time of year again when gift giving is on every one's mind. I always like to give something wish special meaning, not just a gift that only means there you are you got your Christmas gift for this year, you know what I mean like a gift certificate or pair of socks with a tie to match. Our USA has gotten so commercialized, it's sad. After Thanksgiving I was on my way home from my daughter's house and decided to stop at a Walmart store.

Like many families, my family holds holiday customs near and dear to their hearts. Once a custom, there can never be any variation from the standard …“that’s the way we always do it!” Christmas traditions range around the world and the heritage of a family may determine the traditions utilized. My family roots are Polish, which celebrates with a Wigilia, and German where the glass pickle is popular.
