Bringing Back Ponchos and Dusters!

Some winter coverups are just too hard to resist as they create romantic notions in your mind.  The duster jacket on a man is so cowboy and tough and the poncho on a woman is so cute and trendy. Yes, even though we think of these as old-fashioned garments, they are making a comeback!

Nephilim Stones: Exciting Gem and Mineral Business!

Post by Sharon

Nephilim Stones

Dennis Guern and I have launched our page on Facebook for our Nephilim Stones business. Here is an explanation of what our work is about - 

We are seekers of ancient mysteries, ancient cultures, things of an unexplained nature, and above all rockhounds!

Time in the field gives us the chance to share nature, interesting places, ancient mysteries, and rock finds with the public. You can find our research on - a top paranormal blog in the world and our videos will be released on channel.

Expect us to begin sharing expeditions and research relics and artifacts, Bigfoot footprint casts, and amazing rock finds on the YouTube channel, as well as offering rocks for sale, beautiful jewelry wraps, and Sharon's oil paintings of rock.

We both have a reverence for the energy that stones can put off and Sharon's expertise as a psychometrist (psychic who reads objects) can offer detailed insights into the energy of each specific cut of stone you might be interested in purchasing and how it can be utilized for optimal benefit.

It's all about the fun and discovery, so expect our humor and adventuring nature to come across. When you hang with us, you're hanging with a team of childlike enthusiasts for our amazing world!

After all, the ancients and their megalithic structures proved an understanding of the qualities of stone. Possessing a rock isn't just about a piece of Earth, but a piece of ancient energy that can be utilized for its beauty and its orienting qualities.

Road Trip Essentials

Post by Sharon and Julie

Hitting the road is so easy and so convenient. No driving and parking at airports, waiting in lines, getting security checked, sitting at a terminal, flying in a tight space with strangers and a pilot whose name you don't even know who will escort you 35,000 feet above the earth for several hours, no renting cars, baggage checkout, and all the other air travel headaches. So, as you consider hitting the open road, here are some things we suggest, as we are quite expert at road treks! And, if you are still holiday shopping - these are all super choices for anyone.

Winter Decor: Nordic Home Accents

Post by Sharon (Thorvaldsen)  

Touches of the Northern latitude in the wintertime is an ideal marriage of style and utility.  My favorite is everything from the icy climes and with about 80% Scandinavian DNA, I can't help but look at my father's homeland for inspiration that touches my spirit and makes me dream of frost in this godawful desert I live in.

Indoor Gardening

As an avid  gardener who is also a baby boomer, I think less and less about fighting bugs, critters, weeds, and Bermuda grass on my knees working the earth and more about alternatives that are easier to access, cleaner, and less likely to compete with creatures/bugs wanting to eat my goods. 

Baby Boomers Vintage Skateboarding, Vintage Rolerskating and Vintage Surfing

Post by Sharon 

The 1950s, 1960s and 1970s personified skateboarding, rollerskating and surfing culture. I admit to being a very avid skateboarder and freestyle rollerskating, spending a few hours a day on both! I wanted to be a surfer, but I was on the quiet Chesapeake, so I daydreamed of growing up, moving to LA and surfing like Gidget. There was a whole music, lifestyle, and fun culture built around these things - from Beach Boys and Dick Dale surfing attitude to roller disco skating and half-pipe-loving skateboarders. 
Let's relive some of the fun and find ways to recapture it, even if we aren't willing to get on a board in our middle years -
