Gifts From Kaleidoscopes To You!



Hey neighbors!

A few years ago I worked with Kaleidoscopes To You, so I reached out to them about our Holiday Gift Guide.  They said yes and sent me the most beautiful Kaleidoscope necklace.  I know, I know, when I said Kaleidoscopes you immediately thought of children and toys.  Yes, many kaleidoscopes are designed for children, but you will be amazed by the variety and intricacy of many of the kaleidoscopes available on their website.  I was!


This Butterfly Kaleidoscope is so tiny, feminine and delicate.  It is approx. 1 1/2 inches long.  It is silver and has a butterfly perched on one side.  Even the chain on this necklace is pretty.  Here is the official description: This shiny silver butterfly kaleidoscope necklace is a favorite of all ages, with the butterfly made up of a silver swirl and 4 sparkling CZ crystals. The pretty pendant is strung on a 28" long silver tone chain, making it easy to peek inside your kaleidoscope necklace at your leisure, or share the stunning secret inside with a friend.


What a unique gift idea! I am sure many of you remember owning a kaleidoscope at one time as a child.  Looking through the tiny hole, watching as the colors swirled and changed shapes.  Here is not only a beautiful gift, but for some us it holds treasured memories.





Be sure to check out Kaleidoscopes To You and see all the different choices you have.  Some are for display, while others can be worn.  Some are made from wood, and others are made of metal, like brass.  You will find some as tiny as my necklace and others large enough to place on display stands.  They also carry supplies to build kaleidoscopes.


Do you know who invented the Kaleidoscope?  Here is a little information:
Kaleidoscopes were invented in 1816 by David Brewster a Scottish inventor. Sir David Brewster was studying many aspects of physical Sciences including polarization optics and the properties of light. While looking at some objects at the end of 2 mirrors He noticed patterns and colors were recreated and reformed into Beautiful new arrangements. He named this new invention after the greek words meaning beautiful form watcher. kalos, the greek word for beautiful, eodos, the greek word = shape scopeo, the greek word = to look at.
You can read more on the Kaleidoscopes To You website.



Below here are just a few examples of some of the other types of kaleidoscopes they carry.





Now neighbors, I personally think any one of these kaleidoscopes would make a great gift idea.  I really like my kaleidoscope necklace and I am sure there are others out there who would love to own one.  When you start gift shopping, consider adding Kaleidoscopes To You to your shopping list.

Kaleidoscopes To You is going to send the winner of this Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway a Kaleidoscope Necklace just like mine.  Be sure to enter and then share this giveaway!  Thank you for stopping by today!  See you soon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
