:H "Rubies, Diamonds, and Pearls oh my!" I have to admit something. I am an addict! I am addicted to shopping! I find it to be the quickest way to "lift" my spirits when I'm feeling low or lonely. And sometimes I just do it for fun! My fav's to buy? Jewelry is #1! Any other jewelry fans out there? Or maybe I should say "fanatics"? The next in line would be shoes, makeup, kitchen stuff, and luxery bedding. Can't forget candles too! My momma named me right when I was born. Was it a premonition or could this have caused me to love jewels the way that I do? If I had been named "Levi", would I prefer to buy jeans instead? If "Harriet", would it be wigs?

I just bought an onyx ring a few days ago, and ordered some beautiful vintage looking earrings this morning on-line. Plus, I can't forget about the cabochon garnet ring that I purchased last week! I've been looking for a great cabochon stone ring for awhile now. =P~

I would love to know what the rest of you buy when you feel the need. Does it perk you up and help to get you out of a funky mood? Luckily for me it isn't a brief satisfaction like it would be for a true shopping addict. I enjoy my purchases for at least a couple of weeks before it begins to wear off.

Some tips that I've learned along the way;
(1) Gold Canyon candles smell the best, and give the best scent when lit.
(2) You CAN wear heels when you have back problems! I was wearing flats in the beginning and then one day I tried on a wedge heel. The pain in my lower back decreased. Try them, we can still look sexy when in pain! Must be wedge heels though!
(3) Have your clothing custom tailored to fit you perfectly. It doesn't cost very much at all, and your clothes will fit beautifully.
(4) I purchased a mattress topper for my bed and for the first time in 7 years, I'm able to sleep in it again. Without pain! If you send me a pm, I'll tell you where I bought it.
(5) I like to keep a vase with fresh flowers in the house all of the time. I have a lot of vases already, I just buy flowers at the grocry store. It is a very inexpensive splurge that boosts my mood every time I look at or smell them. White carnations with babies breath is especially pretty. They look like puffy clouds or snowballs.

Please feel free to add to my list, we can never have too many ideas that are uplifting! I also want to know what everyone enjoys buying, cooking, reading, etc.

What's a few of your favorite things? :X


  • :) my dog Sirius is definitely a favorite thing. she keeps my house lively and fun. :X another big one is open windows. i live by the beach and the ocean breeze just can't be beat! my third favorite thing would be stuff to read. :B a good book, a magazine,even stuff on the fourm. i have to read every day!! and finally is my "mood machine." =)) it has a fountain of water and can make all kind of sounds from a loon to a rainforest. these are a few of my favorite things!! i love your idea about flowers. i have them in my house when i can!! and i light candles every evening.

  • I don't have much interest in jewelry (my jewelry consist of 3 things, my wedding ring, my ladybug earrings and my opal cross (my hubby gave me before we were married)i have to add on my cross chain I also have my grandma heart, my mom heart, my sister heart, my daughter heart, and a little ladybug (mom gave me when my grandma passed away)my chain is long and is usually down under my shirt.I did just get new living room furniture,(does this count, cause it is still new and its my favorite furniture I have ever had)hubby bought it mostly for me so i can have a comfy recliner for my not so comfy back-neck. I love my stainless steel appliances in my kitchen-(i just have to work on getting my cupboards organized) (im gonna ask jewels for a online class, I hear shes GOOD at this)
    I love seeing my grandkids & having them spend the night(one at a time)

    I also love to read medical things,
    my favorite thing to do is crochet, and thats one of my favorite things I can still do, many of my favorite things I can no longer do at this time, but im very much hoping i will get back to my old favorite things to do.
    I crochet blankets in the winter and dollies in the summer. We just found out recently we are gonna be having a new grand baby! we wont know if its a boy or girl until right before Christmas. so two weeks ago we went to the yarn store and i bought yarn to make a boy blanket and a girl blanket, hehehe my hubby thinks im silly doing this.i have started the girl blanket then i will get busy on the boy one. who knows maybe I am doing this cause she is gonna have both a boy and girl. well there again patsy has gone way off subject(just me i cant help it, the harder i try the worse i get)I will just blame it on meds.
    I do find that just buying the littlest thing for the house, can get me in the mood to get some serious cleaning done.
    I do have a new favorite thing to do the computer(im new to this only been using a computer for a few months)and with the computer i have found many favorite things... Patsy

  • I got to thinking about what really are my favorite things
    I cant believe I forgot two very important ones
    #1 seeing Butterflies in my yard and taking pictures of them
    #2 having ladybugs around me everyday & everywhere I go

  • Thanks for starting this post cause I needed some better thoughts...
    Hmmm...I like candles and good smelling things. LOVE good food. Massages. Jaccuzzis. Any new piece of something to wear or put in my place, from shoes, jeans, hats, and my new hand-made thumb ring, to that new coffee table I got the other day. A good nap is always nice. A perfectly mixed cocktail...mmmmmm... Happy times with friends, family, or a lover. Singing and acting out the lyrics to old Smiths songs while driving fast on winding roads...
    Bring on the good things in life! 8>

  • My favorite things are good times with family,but aside from that I really love riding down to the beach,camping,rolling up my jeans in the surf,talking late at night around a campfire-right after a hot shower,the sun on my face in the early morning(on the beach-lol)...the great thing about that is that it can all be done in one day.

    I have this big round,but low crystal bowl that I put water in and throw magnolias on to float on top my table in the L/R.They're pretty and bring a bit of the outdoors in.I also like big plants,my latest is a huge peace lily.
  • :D The 2 things were a HUGE surprise! LOL!!!!! :X
  • Of course furniture counts! Whatever makes you happy or are a few of your favorite things. Big, small, fat, thin, wet, dry, silver, gold, tangible, or just a thought! Anything counts! <:P
  • Singing and driving fast on winding roads! Let the music play.................... :)
  • Oh, how did I forget the beach? My absoloute fav "IS" the beach! I was jealous when I read that Lulu lived at the beach! :D Waking up to the sound of the ocean crashing against the rocks, going to sleep with the same sound, eating "anything" at the ocean, (I am always hungry at the beach) swimming in the ocean, the SMELL of the ocean! And the very best of all? Riding horses along the beach! How much better can it get than that? 8>
