Too Cute....

OMG these are a must see...I love Etsy and Debbie creates adorable hand painted treats...I received one for my niece that she hand painted with her name and cupcakes. My niece loved it she has all her little jewelry pieces inside and the best part is the dancing ballerina when you open the lid. I remember having a jewelry box like that when I was a kid only mine wasn't personalized or handpainted... Please read below about Debbie and her work and make sure to visit her site. Gift Giving is around the corner these would make for a special gift.

A Child’s Delight by Debbie is owned by Debbie from Nashville, TN and offers personalized hand painted children/baby gifts including canvases, ballerina jewelry boxes, frames, bow holders, piggy banks, art boxes, matchbox car cases and much more!

About the artist:

I started working as an artist for an upscale children’s store about twelve years ago and just loved the work, personalizing and painting images on all sorts of things. I eventually decided to branch out on my own, and I’ve been creating gifts and murals for children ever since. I sell through Etsy and in craft fairs in and around the Nashville area. I paint many different things, including canvas art pieces, room decor accessories, children’s furniture and doll furniture. It’s hard work, but also inspiring, and I feel blessed to be able to do it. It’s so rewarding to see a child’s eyes light up when they get that special gift with their name painted on it. Please check out my Etsy store whenever you need that special personalized gift for a child!
You can find my shop here:

Also look me up on Twitter at ArtgirlDeb or on Facebook as A Child's Delight by Debbie...hope to see you there!

David Oreck, who founded Oreck Corporation more than 47 years ago and developed the powerful, lightweight Oreck vacuum cleaners, makes a special appearance at the grand opening, 10 am - 1 pm, Friday, Oct. 22, the Oreck Clean Home Center, 326 N.

Oreck Air Purifier

Oreck Air Purifier

The colder weather is now moving in and that means spending more time inside. This usually means also having to deal with colds and allergies. There also has been an increase in the number of children that have asthma. Adding an effective air purifier can improve the air quality inside your home dramatically. Inside air can have up to five times more pollutants than outdoors, according to the EPA.

The Oreck air purifier attacks potentially harmful particles. With a multi-stage purification system that captures allergens, viruses, bacteria, mold, and germs. This product destroys particles as minute as 0.1 microns, or one thousandth of a human hair. Permanent Helios Shield uses ultraviolet light (UV-A) to eliminate odors and VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

The Oreck air purifier cleans and re-circulates the air in a 12' x 18' room twice every hour. The Truman Cell permanent filter also never needs to be replaced!

Home and health experts recommend using an air purifier 24/7, especially in bedrooms.
Oreck ProShield Plus Air Purifier is available at $399 at more than 450 Oreck Clean Home Centers across the country.
The Fabulous Finds gives this product 2 thumbs up...

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to channel your fabulous style into a great cause? Well, this power can be in the palm of your hand – literally!
Conair invites you to curl (brush, straighten or blow-dry!) for the cure with the Conair® “The Power of Pink” product collection.

As you know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Conair will donate a minimum of $100,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation based on the sale of products from the Power of Pink collection.

We would truly appreciate if you could help spread the word about this important effort in the fight against breast cancer…the power is in your hands!

String Ring, The Kindness Reminder

Have you ever heard of the trick that you should tie a little piece of string around your finger to make you remember to do something? The string ring takes this same principle for reminding you to be kind. The string ring is a lovely silver band that is inlaid with a slot around the outside. This is so that a piece of string can stay on the exterior part of the circle. Every time you look down at your hand, you see the ring and it is a little constant reminder to exude the kind of positive energy the world needs.

On the company’s website they state their goal as…
“The String-Ring™ is a cue to remind yourself, and those who notice it, to be kind to one another. To do a kind act, or even think something kind. Designed to be threaded with the provided colored string, String-Ring reminds you of the particular act of kindness you wish to remember. Each String-Ring™ is crafted from the best quality silver and comes with 20 replaceable colored strings, a jute bag, polishing cloth, stickers, and a list of color meanings.”

I had the pleasure of trying this product first hand and it was a wonderful experience. The ring is extremely comfortable, and trying out all of the different colors are so much fun! You can coordinate colors with what you are wearing so that it matches perfectly. You can also choose what color matches up with the feelings that you would like to work on for that day, week, or even month. You may want to be more optimistic that month…Yellow would be the color that you would want to put on your ring. Maybe you want to be more understanding. You then can change the string to silver.

Changing the strings are a breeze. The kit that comes with the ring includes detailed instructions on how to change them. The kit also includes the ring, 20 replaceable colored strings, a jute bag, polishing cloth, stickers, and a list of color meanings. All this is well worth the 28.95$ that it costs. The ring also comes in 4 size options so that everyone can get the ring that fits their finger the best.

I now wear my ring everyday and receive compliments on it constantly. In this stressful world it’s beneficial to surround yourself with things that are positive and remind you to be a little more kind.

More information and place to buy the ring are available on the website:
