It's often said that it's not the gift but the thought that counts and these gifts help you show a lot of thought by being able to select something that matches their interests.

When you're shopping for a necklace online, one of the tricky parts is trying to determine how far down the necklace hangs and whether it will fit too tightly around the neck.

Jewelry for Autumn September 17 2018

Autumn is an exciting time for creative people - there is a lot of natural beauty and vivid color that helps spark the imagination of anyone involved in jewelry or other creative arts. Jewelry is an especially great medium because of the role that color plays.

While I hope that you might find one of these pieces a great fit for your jewelry collection, I think they are a great way to celebrate fall as well.

When is It Too Early to Buy Christmas Items? September 12 2018

Discussing buying Christmas items must seem somewhat unusual months from December. However, due to the influence of secular retailers, the demand for Christmas products continues to grow sooner each year. In many cases, it's necessary to order as early as possible to ensure that the items you want are actually still available.

Another thing to consider, too, is products that are ordered for Advent. These include Advent calendars and Advent wreaths. Because Advent begins four weeks before Christmas and usually falls right after Thanksgiving, there is a very real need to order these products well ahead of time.

We generally ship Advent calendars that are in stock up through the middle of November. This usually provides enough time for them to reach their destination. However, in the case of international customers or those placing very large orders, we recommend placing the orders by the end of October.

A Few Unique Irish Customs December 14 2017

Irish cultural customs have been a part of the unique fabric that has held Ireland together for generations. The spiritual significance of these centuries-old customs has a lot to teach us today. These customs have increased in popularity among Americans of Irish descent. Here are a few of these treasured customs:

  • Shrovetide Weddings - Anglican/Episcopal and Catholic parishes don't celebrate weddings during Lent because of the solemn nature of the season. Irish Catholics traditionally started a lot of matchmaking during Epiphany season, which starts January 6th and ends Ash Wednesday. Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday (known in some cultures as Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday) became a popular wedding date. Consider a date during this time if your clergy and other key wedding people are agreeable and you want an unusual date.
  • Halloween comes from the ancient celebration of Samhain and is a time a time to remember the departed, much like Dia De Los Muertos/Day of the Dead. Colcannon potatoes are often part of a meal, with an extra treat added for the kids - clean coins wrapped in wax paper and hidden within the mixture. You'll be happy because the kids will get their share of vegetables, and they'll still be able to get their share of candy.
  • Christmas has traditionally been a time for a nice family dinner. Traditional puddings are always something that tops many a holiday gift list, especially for family spread far and wide. A post-Christmas Eve mass dinner that includes a goose or turkey and all the trimmings will keep everyone pleased.
