A Jewel of a Time…

My Aunt Susan loves to wear pretty pieces of jewelry, and every year I like to search out a special piece to add to her sparkly collection.  As soon as I walked into Print Metro & CreativeOne Gallery to make copies today, I was immediately drawn to a jewelry line that would be a perfect gift for her.  The Kameleon Jewelry collection is a line of interchangeable jewels that pop into rings, necklaces, bracelets and more allowing you to change your stones and jewels in and out.

I ended up picking out a Tiffany style bracelet.  Toni spent time to help me pick out the right jewel to go with the bracelet – a glittering blue jewel.  If my Aunt Susan wants to change out the jewel, she can change it with other jewels or stones to accent her outfits everyday.

Try It Before You Buy It: Filtrete Water Station

SPARTA, Mich. (WZZM)--  If you drink a lot of bottled water, this product might peak your interest.  The new Filtrete Water Station is a water purifier that fills four water bottles that are perfect for on-the-go, saving money and the environment.

I tested it with a family in Sparta who complained about their bad tasting, cloudy tap water.  The Filtrete system claims to reduce sediment and chlorine and improve taste and smell.

It certainly cleared up their cloudy water and all three family members agreed it greatly improved the taste.

The convenient 16.9 ounce bottles were also perfect for their family, since they typically go through a 24-pack of bottled water a week.  The bottles are BPA free and are dishwasher safe, though it's recommended to hand wash the bottles to keep their clarity.

Pet Costume Contest

A Pet Costume Contest takes place on Saturday, October 30 at Rogers Park! Registration begins at 11am & judging at noon. There will be "Free Entry" & awards for the best costume! Come to Rogers Park in Sparta to have your pet take part or see what pet costume thrills the judges!

A Walk Thru The Woods

It seems pretty early (Ok, ok, I admit, it IS early!) to be thinking about Christmas let alone actually shopping around for Christmas.  However, any free moment I can find to get some items knocked off my list is going to make my shopping much less stressful this year.  Plus I LOVE gearing up for Christmas… seeing family and friends… it’s a great time of year!
