My Review:

Okay, so this is a wonderful etsy shop!! I don’t know about you, but I love books (didn’t know that, did you? ;)) and this shop owner takes pieces of books and makes them wear-able. And this includes maps. And I love maps. The piece I was given to review (that I requested) is this lovely piece:


“The Shire” from the beloved classics of J.R.R Tolkien, Lord of the Rings.
As soon as I received it, I fell in love with the necklace. The chain is just beautiful, and the necklace pendant itself is stunning. Plus the little bead-charm compliments it so well! This is how I received it, (well, it came in a package, but that’s not included here):


I am really a lover of necklaces – I don’t wear much jewelry, but I do wear necklaces (and my purity rings) and I am definitely in love with this necklace. One of the things I love about it, is it’s a unique piece. All the necklaces I own are all unique and individual in their own way, and I am very pleased that this one is likewise! The necklace is heavy-duty, and it feels very secure and comfortable around my neck. The clasp is a nice one too, though I can just slip the necklace over my head. The chain is aprox. 24 inches long, and hangs at a comfortable length I think. You can request any size chain length, too, by the way.
Here’s another picture for you to admire (I am admiring it still…):


This is an etsy shop I will definitely keep in mind as I’m sure I can come up with a million book quotes to request for custom order to buy someday :D
I greatly encourage you to check out the shop as well – I’m sure you’ll be able to find something you like!

Thank you so very much, Paige, for allowing me to do this, and for being so kind and patient as we discussed it! God bless you richly!

And thank you, readers, for, well, reading! =)

Throw Dirt and Keep Calm

I just wanted to share a couple of images with ye all. The first is just an image found on pinterest that I liked:

Original link:

“Throw Dirt on Me and I’ll Grow a Wild Flower”

Which to me, means that as God takes all situations and makes them new, so we are to learn from that. You may throw dirt at me, if you wish, but my God will turn around that situation and I’ll grow a wild flower :)

And then an image I just made:


How can you not keep calm when you’re throwing a tomahawk at a log target? ;)

About the Shop:
This shop sells hand-stamped, personalized jewelry, from necklaces to key chains and pet tags in between! The shop ships from Canada, and she makes the requested item in 3-5 days and ships them the next. Good service!

My Review:

I was provided with a complimentary necklace to review, and let me say I am very pleased! The shop-owner, Nicole, was pleasant to work with and she does an excellent job on her jewelry. The necklace I requested and received is this one:

The necklace reads “I keep a close watch on this heart of mine” with a stamped heart below it, and then it has a small heart and gun charm on the necklace too. This is the photo I personally took of the delightful necklace upon receiving it (sorry it is not the best quality):


As you can see, the necklace came in a cute little draw-string bag – I thought that was lovely, as I love those little bags! :)
The necklace is very light-weight; both the necklace pendant itself and the chain, which I like a lot. I’m so used to my heavier necklaces so at first I was worried it might break, but upon inspecting it more, I don’t believe it will! It seems very well crafted and well-built, so I don’t need to worry about it breaking.
I was (and am) quite impressed by how nicely stamped it is. I have tried hand-stamping before and it is a bit difficult to get all the letters to align correctly and look nice! This necklace is beautifully done.
Included was a sheet of some of the details which I will share part of:

“The metal is 18 gauge aluminum metal. The metal is thick, but light-weight, durable, looks similar to sterling, shines up like sterling, does not tarnish and aluminum is also skin-friendly and affordable. The pendant hangs from a 24 inch (unless otherwise specified) stainless steel ball chain. The chain is very strong, etc. ”

When the shop-owner agreed to allowing me a product review, I was thrilled for more reasons than one. You see, I have been dealing with some “issues of the heart” and the Lord recently brought me to the stage where I can fully trust my heart in His hands. Thus, “I keep a close watch on this heart of mine” has more meaning to me! God has shown me how valuable our hearts are to Him, and how we must guard them, as Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep [guard] thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life”.
This necklace is a blessing to me, and I greatly appreciate the shop owner allowing me to do this product review and providing me with the complimentary necklace! Thank you so very much, Nicole, and God bless you!

Nicole has many other wonderful hand-stamped items in her shop, so I greatly encourage you all to go check it out! You won’t be disappointed with her products! :)

And to my readers: I have another post prepared (that is somewhat on our church’s VBS that was recently) that I hope to share soon, but I shan’t promise anything, because well, I don’t want you waiting on it and then me forget ;)
