What in The World is this?



Yesterday I asked if you knew what this is? This necklace has been in my jewelry box for more than 30 years and the plant in this house for 27 years.


Last week on Someone's Blog, that someone bought an owl magnifying glass and made a necklace to read things with tiny print while shopping.

The secret to the longevity of this plant is I give it one cup of water every Saturday at 5 AM... and never let the sun touch it, it loves light but not direct sunlight.


The lightbulb went off over my head, I dug it out and I went into a snapping FIT magnifying Every Thing In The Kitchen. It works. Thank you to HOOTIN ANNIE for the idea for this post, I thought of it when I saw THIS POST on her OWL  and thanks to Jo at MemorialMeanders for reminding me of where I saw it.

In your first collage, it looks like three different necklaces! I thought you also had a green one! It looks different whatever you put it in front of. It is a gorgeous green collage for sure. I have to check and see if I have any of mine still. Gorgeous and beautifully done post.

Love the necklace and your magnified pictures. I need to see if I can find something like that. Ginny's right, in the first collage it does look like different necklaces. The one looks like it has a green stone in it

Excellent....your necklace/magnifier looks to be antique. I LOVE it!!! And your commentary is great.

Oh, and love the previous post too...that is a beautiful hanging plant.

The magnifying glass necklace is a great idea. I remember people wearing their reading glasses on a chair around their neck.

I love your necklace/magnifying glass. One of the prettiest I've seen and I did see Anni's post last week.

You've outdone yourself with this series of photos and the story of your necklace. I have a magnifying glass that folds into a small replica of a fishing reel. (guess who I stole that from ;)

Hi Sandra, pothos plants are great! I have had them in all our homes. They are indestructible.
Love your magnifying necklace!

Went into a snapping fit...I am picturing a dog snapping at everything that passes....LOL

Even though I wear glasses, sometimes I need a magnifying glass to read that fine print...

Jo said...

Oh wow, Sandra. That really is a neat magnifier necklace. I can just picture you on a magnifying madsnapping fit. Thanks for the plug. I thought afterwards: oops, should I have just said it out loud on the comment but as long as it helped. Thanks for an interesting and funny post. Jo

Good info on the plant...it obviously thrives on that one cup of liquid love and not an drop more.

LOL on the magnifying necklace glass. It looks brand new!! I might have to start taking one to the grocery store to read the ingredients.

I don't wear much jewelry, but methinks I need one of these!
Much more attractive than the little spring-loaded magnifier Tom carries (that) scares the c*** out-a me every time it springs open (just like those stupid Jack-in-the-Box toys used to).

Ruth Hiebert said...

That is very interesting and would come in handy at times.

Good idea with a magnifying glass that can be used as a necklace (or the other way round!) Also a reminder that I need to book an appointment with an optician because it's probably time for a new pair of progressive eyeglasses (and yes, it's the reading of small print that's the problem)

I love the necklace looking glass!! I can see that being handy to wear while shopping. Pretty cool.

Lois said...

I love your collage and now I really want a necklace like that!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I remember seeing necklaces like that. I could use one when I'm shopping so I could keep my glasses in my purse!
