Dear Mr. Gable {Review}

Time for some shameless self-promotion 🙂 Dandy readers, welcome to my tiny Etsy shop, Dear Mr. Gable.  The name of my shop comes from my favorite classic actress, Judy Garland, and her song “Dear Mr. Gable” that is just so sweet.

This latest hobby is really more of a trial-run right now, to see if there is still a market for beaded watches.  I’ve wanted one of these for the longest time, and couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in a beaded watch, so I decided to make my own, and loved how they turned out.
 quad
Beaded watches can be so pretty, but they can also be too clunky, scratchy, heavy, and kitschy, in my opinion.  I wanted to make a watch that could be dressed up or down and compliment practically any wardrobe, while still being simple and sophisticated, as well as extremely affordable.

These watches are being sold for $11.50, and if you’d like a watch done for Mother’s Day, purchase this week and I can guarantee it will be at your door (or your mother’s door) in time!  Choose from either a smooth watch face (on the right) or a dotted watch face (on the left).
faces
All watches are made with a strong, stretchy jewelry cord, and prepared so as not to stretch out with time, but still allowing you to easily take it on and off your wrist. These are made with a double row of beads, though I can make a watch with a single row if you prefer, and indicate in a message to me.  Here are the colors available:
colors smallAll watches are made to order.  You can choose a wrist circumference size, but also remember that the band is stretchy.
Small 6”- 6.5”
Medium 6.5”- 7”
Large 7”- 7.5”
XLarge 7.5″ – 8”

Mother’s Day gift?
Message me with any questions!  I’d love to send something lovely your way!

A letter to my husband on December 7th

My dearest, dearest, Audi,

You don’t mind that I refer to you on the blog as Audi, do you?  It is somewhat like the word audiologist, right?  Since I’m always leaving off the whole gist at the end I do often wonder if people reading the Dandy think that I’ve named you after one of my favorite cars or if they think you install car stereos for a living.  Not that installing car stereos is a bad job.  It’s not.  It’s a great profession.  I just figure that it doesn’t take 8 years of education to learn how to install a car stereo.  Or maybe it does???  I’ve never installed a car stereo before, so I honestly have no idea.  Someone please feel free to enlighten me.

Anyway, I realize that in years past I may have been the slightest bit difficult to shop for. What with my shameless attempts to be subtle or even down right cryptic and all as to what to get me for Christmas.  You and I both know that you were able to figure out often what I was hinting at, so why did I even try to be all sly about it?  I realize that it could have presented like I didn’t trust you to shop for me.  Or that I was implying that you didn’t grasp the meaning behind my incessant hints and for that I am sorry.  Well, lucky you, because I’ve decided to try something different this year. Since we have been married for 10 years and all.  So it’s not like we are remotely new into our relationship.  It’s high time for a change, don’t you think?  No reason to continue on like I have been for the past 10+ years.  So here it goes…

To start I wanted to remind you know that today is December 7th. Now don’t get all nervous thinking you forgot that it’s a special sort of day or something. It’s not.  Well, actually it is Pearl Harbor Day which is very special and important to remember in the United States.  Lest we never forget.  A day that will live in infamy and all that.  Don’t get me wrong I’m so very proud to be an American and so thankful for the men and women who risk their lives every day to keep us safe.  But today is not one of those special kind of “us” days.  So don’t think that you forgot one of those “us” kind of days.  You didn’t.  It’s not our anniversary.  It’s not my birthday.  It’s not the day when we went on our first date 11 years ago.  It’s just December 7th…  18 more days away from Christmas!!!  Which means you have technically 17 more shopping days left.  Ready for the big reveal of what I’m doing different this year?  Well, I haven’t been hinting, because I’m just going to tell you what you can get me this year.  Aha!  Isn’t that so great of me to do for you?  So here’s my list of gift ideas…

I could really use this “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” beaded watch:

And you know…

This watch is super special and unique, because you can also get me another beaded watch band to interchange with the face.  Like this one:

Okay you can get me more than just one band…

 

There’s a band that will match every outfit in my closet!

Next up:  A ring to match the pearl necklace you got me for our anniversary this year.

Lastly a couple of bracelets would be perfect.  These ones to be exact:

All of the above can be found at Chunky Bling, so you can even get it all in one stop!  You will have to play around with the interactive program on their website for that mother’s bracelet.  It’s pretty cool.  See?  I’ve really made it easy on you this year.  Your welcome.  😉

Love,

Me.
