Wedding Rings – Through the Ages and for All Etern

Wedding Rings – Through the Ages and for All Eternity

by: M J Plaster

The exact origin of the wedding ring is uncertain and is rife with superstition and mythology. Papyruses dating back to the ancient Egyptian civilization depict wedding rings, and historians credit the land of the Pharaohs with originating this tradition. Engagement or betrothal rings were in use as far back as prehistoric times, but the wedding ring is a relatively new tradition, and unlike the engagement ring, is steeped in religious ritual.
In ancient times, accepting a wedding ring constituted a legally binding agreement between husband and wife. The wife became property of the husband, a holding of sorts...

Creative Storage Solutions

Creative Storage Solutions

by: Rachel Paxton

When the things in your home start crowding in around you and you’re short on cash, it’s time to come up with some creative storage solutions. Don’t be afraid to think “out of the box”. You’re the only one who has to know where everything is stored.
– A cedar chest can be used for blanket storage. I don’t have enough cupboard space for blankets, and they all fit nicely in the chest. The chest also doubles as a coffee table in the living room. The blankets are easily accessible and can easily be folded up and put away at a moment’s notice.
– My daughter and I found an old apple crate (fruit labels still attached) with a shelf built into it at a yard sale for about $5. The crate is a great storage area for books and doubles as a nightstand.

The Sound of His Laughter

The Sound of His Laughter

by: Skye Thomas

When you’re searching for your Mr. Right, I want you to pay close attention to his laugh. It may seem odd for me to say that, but you can tell a lot about a man by his laugh. Real laughter is uncontrollable. For just a moment something strikes us as funny and the sound of laughter pours forth spontaneously and without any real control on our part. It bubbles up and gives away the secret part of us that thinks the event or situation presented is funny. Laughter can be faked, but that’s part of what I want you to analyze when you’re listening to his laughter.
First of all is his laughter real or fake? You can always tell when someone has one of those completely goofy laughs that nobody in their right mind would choose to have — those silly soun...

Online Dating. Is It Taken To Seriously?

Online Dating. Is It Taken To Seriously?

by: Tyler Casselman

When I look at allot of the online dating services I notice one common trend. People take it very seriously into finding there true love. I find it absolutely amazing the amount of people who are looking for there absolute perfect match.
There seems to be so many profiles out there who tell people exactly what it is they want from a partner. Its as if there an owner of a company and there trying to fill a certain job position. They then take and list there requirements and what they expect from a person. If they don’t meet those requirements then they think there unsuitable. I think that’s crazy.
Dating is about getting to know people and then seeing if you enjoy spending time with them...

The Magic of Design

The Magic of Design

by: Melody Foster

There was a time people thought the world was flat. At another point in history it was believed that women didn’t have the know-how to run a business or change a tire. Then there was the one about man not being able to fly. Over time all of these fairytales have proven untrue.
So it is with interior design. Until recently, many people held the belief that having their home decorated by an interior designer was reserved for the rich and famous. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Fact is, many people of average income who live in a middleclass neighborhood are frequently surprised to learn they can easily afford the services of an interior designer...

This is one of many articles posted weekly on http://www.beach-supplies.com/

Tired of wearing the regular looking two piece or one piece swimsuits out there? Well now their is some that are called tankini swimwear. They are sort of like bikinis except without the “bi” and adding in a “Tank” that’s where the name TANKini’s came from. This swimwear is pretty much like a tank top styled as a swimsuit top and a regular pair of bottoms.

This is a great new look for swimming suits that was created. The tankini swimwear shows less of your skin because it pretty much covers up the belly area, but it’s not like a regular one piece...

Home Improvement For Ladies

Home Improvement For Ladies

by: Dan Auito

This report is written for those people who may want to improve or update their own home so along those lines, I would like to give you an overview of the factors that may lead you in creating a more effective and successful home improvement project or plan of your own.
Let me begin by saying what a home improvement plan will not do! I have seen this happen more than once, so I will say this now. A home improvement project, addition, upgrade, remodel, or makeover will not make up for a troubled marriage. So for those that think home improvement may save a marriage, I’m telling you now that it will add more stress and it is a poor substitute for proper counseling.
With that said, when you see a home being sold due to a divorce, take a good look at...

The Hows and Whys of Vintage Clothes Shopping

by: Myranda Morgan

Why Vintage?
Why would anyone want to wear vintage clothing? First of all, it’s fun! When you wear vintage, you stand out from the crowd. The chances of someone else wearing the same exact outfit to that special event are slim to none. More and more high school girls are shopping vintage for dances and proms because it guarantees originality. Yasmine, a vintage clothing collector from Los Angeles, says, “I wear vintage so I can add a little something authentically retro to my clothing and not look the same as everyone else, which is difficult in style-conscious L.A..”
Vintage clothing is also nostalgic...
