Happy Hump Day everyone!

Clean unique estate ring features a center Marquise Diamond with a row of diamonds on each side with some nice details. The ring is in very good condition showing some minor markings which is from the consistency of age. This vintage design makes the ring uniquely yours.

Perfect ring for an engagement, wedding, anniversary, birthday, Christmas…coming soon, and for any occasion….like treating yourself.

Lady’s 14kt yellow gold diamond ring has the center marquise cut diamond which is .57ct. This stone has a VS2 Clarity and F Color. There are also 10 total round brilliant diamonds you’ll find on each side of the marquise along the band. These are .34cttw with VS1 Clarity and G Color. This ring has .91cttw of diamonds, and with a weight of 4.24 dwt. The ring does have 2 appraisals accompanying it. One appraisal is from 1993, and the other one is from 2011. The last appraisal shows $4500, and I am assuming these past 8 years it has gone up to maybe $5000, or possibly a little more.

The ring is uniquely beautiful, clean, nice diamonds with some bling, and in great condition considering it’s age. Ring size is 8 1/2. With a little buff, and polish the ring would shine even more, and look very much like new.

***NOTE: there is no ring box with this ring

Please visit my Shoppe at Etsy to see more pictures, ask questions, purchase, etc.

Welcome to LilacsNDreams!

Above is a picture of a project I completed, and is now sitting for the night to let the glue bond. The only thing I need to add will be at the top I will attach a ribbon tie in order for this to hang with other decor for the Christmas season.

I used 2 packages of plastic candy canes from Dollar Tree Store. The ribbon bows came from a package with my ribbon/Christmas stash I am thinking is from Dollar Tree at one time too. The center is an ornament that I found at Walmart. The word JOY is red, and glittered. Above the word is the usual Christmas holly you see with berries, pine cones, etc. The ornament background is a metal like material that has a slight tarnished rustic look.

Monday night I intend to have this listed for sale with my Shoppe at Etsy. Stop by to see some of the vintage collectibles, and some of the handmade repurposed items that I am offering. Of course a lot more pictures of each item, and showing some ideas for their use too. Any questions please feel free to contact me.

Wow! Things have changed a lot really since I use to be active with all my accounts. I keep going through the accounts I have, looking things over, and trying to make decisions that I will benefit more from for me. Decisions to help my small Online Store and accounts. Decisions of how far do I want this to go, how successful do I want to become, and at the same time still being able to enjoy what I do, and having fun with it. Through the years I have kept my domain names, and I am thankful for that. I just need to step up more instead of second guessing myself, and pay attention to the accounts I would like to keep active….without over doing it. Make things simpler so that I can better focus, and give everything the proper attention that it truly needs.

Most of my listings for sales are with my Shoppe at Etsy , once in a while I might list a few items with EBay, but I am more comfortable with Etsy or personal sales. I love my vintage collectibles that I am still offering. Over time I have grown fond of (kind of like a childhood thing) DIY projects, repurposing, upcycling, reclaiming, restoring….giving new life and love to once loved items. In a way making them new again.

So, once again I am asking everyone to bear with me one more time….honestly it has taken time for me to bring it all together. I do apologize. I’ve hit a few obstacles, but I will over come them. Latest was the computer crashing, and of course funding for a new one. Till then I have my new IPad…got that few months before the computer did it’s thing. Anyway, I’m getting along with it till things become better for me.

I am happy to have everyone stop to visit with me. Thank You very much! I have to decide which way I want to go with my blog more permanently….here, there, which one shows more possibilities for me, easier for me to work with, etc etc.

So, this is where things are for me now. Have any questions, please drop me a line. I’ll respond as quickly as possible. Visit me here, with my Shoppe at Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/LilacsNDreams , etc. Happy to have you catch up with me anywhere!

Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams! See y’all again soon!



Above you see 2 pictures of a craft I worked on earlier this week. The picture on the left shows the things I started with. The picture on the right shows the finished product of what I created. I enjoy repurposing, restyling, upcycling vintage pieces along with more modern pieces sometimes too. I used all wooden spools with thread of different colors on them yet. I used some worn older buttons. I created a little mini pin cushion from a silver bead.

I enjoyed this enough that I searched today through different places for more vintage wood blocks. I found some. Unfortunately, I found out tonight the seller is on vacation, and it will be about a week before my item will be shipped. So, that project will be on hold till then. Not to worry, I do have other things that I could work on as well.

I did make a sale on Friday with my shop at Etsy. You can visit to see what vintage collectibles I have listed now, and watch for other things that will be getting added as well. https://www.etsy.com/shop/LilacsNDreams
