Diamond Rings
Posted on 06.24.14 by thegardengossip @

My cousin is getting married and she has the worst diamond ring! And there are just so many rings to choose from and especially if you go online. In my opinion there is a better selection and you usually can find a much better deal right online. And the rings are really beautiful once you get them too. You just have to know where to look but Reeds is a very reputable site that has many rings and have had many very satisfied customers. I do all my shopping online…much more convenient in my opinon.

Glass Door
Posted on 04.21.14 by thegardengossip @

I don’t know about you but I love to do things myself especially when it comes to building things. Sure there are thing where I need a professional because the tasks is too large but I like to fix and build my own things. However, when I do need someone I am always sure to do my research and read up on the BuildDirect reviews especially when it came to putting on a small sunroom and I wanted to have that pretty glass door. There are somethings that I need help with but I want them to be done correctly. If I am going to pay all that money to have someone else do it then it had better be done right and as meticulous as I would do the job. I am not one for sloppy workmanship and I have found over the years that many people do not take pride in their work. Contractors are not the profession that it use to be when my grandfather was one. It was a job that offered a sense of pride and accomplishment but now people just slop out work that looks like the house that Jack Built. Which is why you NEED to look at the reviews of sites to see what other people think. Always go to that site that has the best reviews in my opinion. And then you can even look up things on other sites like wikipedia. Why not take the time to read up on the BuildDirect’s Wikipedia to see what they are all about and how long they have been around helping people to created beautiful entryways. I think that the front too to the home can tell a lot about the home and the people living there. The first thing people see about your home is your front door!

Kronos
Posted on 01.21.14 by thegardengossip @

There are many kinds of keyboards that you can get these days and if you are learning how to play that keyboard but can not afford or accommodate a traditional piano then a good korg kronos 88 at Musicians friend can really work beautifully. And some parents who have children that are learning how to play really do not want to commit to getting something as business and expensive as a piano. So this make for a great way to see if your children is going to really keep with this instruments. And it can actually fit right in the corner of their rooms where they can practice.

Shop Jazzmaster
Posted on 01.11.14 by thegardengossip @

When it comes to looking for guitars of course you want to choose that one that is a reputable brand. Why spend a little less on a product that is going to be completely inferior when you can shop jazzmaster. The better the instrument the better you sound in many cases. Especially when it comes to guitars. And if you are one that is just starting out then you want a brand that is going to make you sound good so that you won’t be discouraged when you can not get it right away.

Water Sofeners
Posted on 12.24.13 by thegardengossip @

I think that water softeners really make a significant difference when it comes to hard water. I had terrible hard water and it got to eh point where I would turn on the water and there would be orange water that would come out first. So, in order to prevent my pipes from totally rotting out over time I investing in a water softener. It did take a while to get use to when you are washing but it tastes no different from the harder water that I had.

DJ Equipment
Posted on 12.12.13 by thegardengossip @

I never really knew how much dj equipment a DJ actually has. You would think that because of ipods that you wouldn’t have tons of cd’s or records or things like that but there is so much they have still. And most good DJ’s also have a lighting system that they set up so that you can can. And they cost quite a bit too…not as much as the live bands but they seem to becoming extinct which is too bad because I think they have a bad wrap. There are good live bands out there.

Industrial Bearing
Posted on 12.03.13 by thegardengossip @

I am not in construction or anything like that so, when it comes to industrial bearings…I have no idea what so ever what they are talking about. I really wish that I did though. I think that I went into the wrong profession and could have been so good in building, designing and stuff like that. So many people go to college for the wrong thing. I think that people should work for a year or two and then decide but by then…it is more difficult to decide to go back to school in many cases.

A Logo Drawstring Bag
Posted on 11.26.13 by thegardengossip @

Everyone needs one of those drawstring bags . If you are a kid then it is great to have for those over night stays at your friend house and the logo is great to have too. Or perhaps you do things after school like sports…why not use one of these bags for your sports clothes or maybe use it for your dirty clothes. You can never have too many bags because they are always getting lost or broke so it is always good to have some on standby for when you need them.

Making it
Posted on 06.08.13 by thegardengossip @

It is just too expensive to go out to the fancy coffee shops anymore or even the cheap chains that are a dime a dozen and that are on every corner. Just make that perfect cup of coffee at home and make a small investment in those stainless steel coffee mugs. Or you can get the disposable coffee cups if you prefer that. But personally the stainless steel is safer because who knows what those disposable cups are leaching in your very hot coffee.

Raccoon Problems?
Posted on 05.08.13 by thegardengossip @

If you are having raccoon problems in your yard or garden or especially near your trash cans then here is a great natural way to keep them away. Just sprinkle some Epsom salt around the area and they will be sure to stay clear of the area. Just be sure to put some more out after a rain storm.

Clean Your Garden Tools
Posted on 05.01.13 by thegardengossip @

It is always good to clean your gardening tools immediately after you have used them. This isbecause you do not know what kind of plant like diseases you will be spreading from one plant to another. Not to mention that they could rust or you could ruin your tools like your gardening scissors if you do not. So just clean them with white finegar. Get a rag and wipe it down and then just let it dry.

Mismatched Nails
Posted on 03.03.13 by thegardengossip @

Well, I am very out of the styles and I was never really in the style when it came to things like manicures and fingernail polish. Mainly because I always bit my nails. But apparently the in thing is to have mismatched nail polish on each finger. Sometimes it is just all different colors and other times it is different pictures that are on each nail. I would say that I am out of the times but I really was never in the times even when I technically was :)

My Rose Of Sharon
Posted on 03.03.13 by thegardengossip @

So, I replanted my rose of Sharon and it is not doing that great but it is still holding on. There was a heat wave so I am thinking that that really did not help it at all. I am hoping that will a little tender loving care that it will rejuvenate. Only time will tell I suppose. It is a difficult thing to successfully replant big plants especially this time of year.

Paving Stone
Posted on 03.03.13 by thegardengossip @

When it comes to paving stone for your patio – there are so many really nice ones to choose from. Personally I like the ones that have a little bit of color in them – it makes for an interesting look for a patio. And the paving stones are great because you can put a fire pit up on it or even just a nice table with umbrella or perhaps you have a nice gazebo you can place on it with nice solar lights. If you are one that has lots of get togethers during the summer months then it is worth it to make your back yard look great no matter how big or small it may be.

More time
Posted on 02.27.13 by thegardengossip @

I wish that I had more time to do things that I would really like to do. I wish I had an hour to exercise without being interupted or some time to sew or just some time to do all the things that I never seem to get done. I wish that I didn’t have to work and I could make my own cheese and yogurt so that I could be healthier. Working really sucks up all the time in the day!

Local Label Printing
Posted on 02.27.13 by thegardengossip @

If you own a business then chances are you are going to encounter needing some local label printing whether it is for business cards or for brochures or perhaps even if you need that menu because you just started up a local pizza business in your neighborhood. I would love to see more local businesses succeed but it seems as though that is getting rarer and rarer these days. They get started and then they close down leaving a vacant lot for all to see.

Piano
Posted on 02.27.13 by thegardengossip @

Everyone thinks that their kid can play the piano. Well, learning how to play and instrument is one thing but really playing it is completely different. If a child doesn’t practice then don’t waste your money parents. This is a solo activity and if they don’t like it then they will never like it and chances are they are not going to get much better even with the best of teachers.

Best Guitars
Posted on 02.27.13 by thegardengossip @

When it comes to shopping for musical instruments like guitars of course you are looking for the best guitars out there. But having bought instruments in the past I have found that just because you buy them in a store does not mean they are better. A good and reputable online site not only has the same products but usually at a better price and it is much more convenient to shop online rather than having to go out to the stores.

Apples
Posted on 02.27.13 by thegardengossip @

An apple a day does keep the doctor away butso does a lemon. Take a slice of lemon and squeeze it in your water ever day for a detox. And the take some of that lemon juice and put in on you problem skin area – great stuff to clear things up and make your skin look great!

Outdoor Bleachers
Posted on 02.23.13 by thegardengossip @

My school just replaced all of the outdoor bleachers which is needed because they were so rusted that people were actually going to fall threw them I swear. And they were so bad you would sit down and if you didn’t have long pants on then you would get a cut on your leg. Aluminum bleachers are the way to go in my opinion and they really look so nice. It makes it have a much new look – so the school can not wait until football season because that is when it is used the most.

Spring
Posted on 01.22.13 by thegardengossip @

I cannot believe that we are not even half way through the winter. We have around 60 days left of winter and if feels like we have been in winter mode for months now. Once the leaves are gone off the trees that is when people think it is winter even though there is usually another month and a half of that cold fall winter that just gives the illusion that it is wintertime already.

So Cold
Posted on 01.22.13 by thegardengossip @

There is cold and then there is really cold and today it is just so incredibly cold outside. it is not only cold in the air but the wind is just shipping around making it seem even colder than it really is. Yet you still people with short sleeved shirts and no coats on and they can afford it because they are talking on an iphone!
