The Art of Haggling

In my eBay, Bonanzle and IOffer stores, the art of haggling comes with the territory. "Is that the best you can do?" is often the first question that begins the gentle duel.

In many parts of the world, haggling is expected no matter what the purchase. In North America, it is often limited to big-ticket items such as jewelry and automobiles. However, it has quickly become the norm during our recession and is likely to remain a permanent part of the landscape even after sales recover.

America’s Research Group found in a survey taken earlier this year that 72% of consumers tried to better the price tag in the past year in a smaller or specialty store businesses. Remarkable 80% of the time, they succeeded in paying less than the ticketed amount.

So the next time you think you cannot afford that item you are drooling over in my internet stores , think again and polish you’re haggling skills.

Peignoir, Negligee, Awaken Men and Women To Spices Of Life*

A gorgeous vintage vanity fair negligee set, including a and robe. The robe is full with a wide sweep. The peignoir negligee set looks new, the tag looks new. I do not see any thing wrong with this lovely set. The color is one of kind. Pink underline with sheer blue material on top-magnificent! The pictures are good,but doesn't always capture the iridescent pearl coloring.

The set comes to you clean and fresh. Smoke free environment.

A gorgeous light blue and tan lace vintage movie star negligee set, including a negligee and robe. The robe is full with a wide sweep. The peignoir set is in good condition. The set has some small holes, but still wearable. Due to the flow of the gown and robe, the holes cannot be seen.

Nobly "peignoir" is a word describing feelings of a woman-man in the opening stanza of the poem "Sunday Morning" by Wallace Stevens. "Complacency's of the peignoir, and late Coffee and oranges in a sunny chair,--" 
"Peignoir" is a long outer garment usually sheer and made of chiffon. "Peignoirs" are are often worn with no underwear. What feelings of sexuality does the word "Peignoir" birth into your minds? I think flirty, exotic, sexy, eccentric, pleasing to the eye, arousal, and spice of life.

"Negligees" are beautiful works of art made of sheer and semi-translucent fabrics and trimmed with lace or other fine material and bows. Multiple layers of fabric are often used. My favorite "negligees" are from the 1940s to the 1970s.

"Negligees" made from the 1940's to the 1970's are now collectible vintage items.‎ The "negligees" are hard to find, especially with a matching "peignoir." A vintage "peignoir" and "negligee" were worn once or twice, during a honeymoon or wedding night. The sets still can be worn many times.

"Negligee" is a garment intended for wear at night and in the bedroom. This is probably a Victorian definition and does not resonate to the now. Let's not overlook the fact, that a "negligee" can be worn anytime, day or night, and any where in the home. A "negligee" does improve sexuality and sleep.
I found an interesting fact that it was only after World War II nightwear changed from being primarily utilitarian to being primarily sensual or even erotic; the negligee emerged strongly as a form of lingerie.  (The Blue Set is Sold)

(The Yellow Set is Sold)

The care of the "peignoir" sets are simple, because of the material they are made of. Wash the lingerie with mild soap and a softener. Either machine wash delicate, dry delicate, or hang dry or hand wash, wrap in a towel, and hang dry.

I have collected several peignoir sets and wear them occasionally. The sexy and elegant feelings are enjoyable to me. Collect one "peignoir" set in a different color each month. By 12 months, you will have a nice collection. A quality "peignoir" set will cost between $40.00 to $200.00. Buy what you like, cost doesn't matter. You can rotate your collection by selling them on eBay. By selling them on eBay, before long, you will have money to keep your collecting an active self-supported hobby.
Awake to a new spice in life. Think about your sexuality, and start wearing or collecting "peignoir" sets and or "negligees." It is stylish and sexy to wear them. The lingerie you choose is sure to be a wallah!

Bold Flower Designs- Victorian, Comtemporary, Classic and Casual Easy Living

Large vases hold the roses-very pretty.

The over sized vase can be used for different types of home styles or for wedding decor. A Contemporary Home: Sleek and chic, the modern home calls for clean lines, smooth surfaces and form. Elegant fabrics, colorful silks, gauze or leather accent steel, glass and other man-made materials. Bold, exotic flowers (anthuriums, heliconia, callas, orchids) with strong lines work well to complement this home's clean, open spaces. A Victorian Home: Velvets, satins, chintz, lace and organza create a feeling of softness and romance in the Victorian home. Pastel colors or soft tone-on-tone prints are used to delight the senses. Fragrant flowers (roses, spray roses, peonies, lavender, gardenias, freesia) in pale peach, lavender, pink, yellow and cream conjure images of romance and sensuality. A Casual Easy Living Home: Casual living lifestyles focus on the simple pleasures of life. The decor includes furniture of light pine, natural woods, bleached oak or a white-washed painted finish with fabrics of linen and cotton in neutral tones. Because these homes are designed for "stress busting," flowers provide nature's balancing formula, such as sunflowers, daisies, hydrangea, delphinium or tulips. A Classic Traditional Home: This home has formal architecture with impressive front doors, foyers and individually decorated rooms. Design elements include classic furnishings and antiques with elegant fabrics of brocade, silk and tapestry. Classic arrangements call for a mixture of flowers (roses, gladiola, iris, carnations, lilies or snapdragons, to name a few) and accents such as dried fruit and foliage. I have 3 vases for sale in my eBay store

A hallway entrance to remember!
A monobotanic arrangement of all one type of flower and monochromatic of using all one color palette, such as a range of pinks would be a great design for a wedding.Placing varied leafs in water to display in the home-marvelous!
Have fun with your children in designing what you place in the large vase.
Just as people have their own personalities, so do their homes. I think fresh cut flowers or artificial flowers placed in common areas of the home such as the kitchen, dining room and family room create great mood-boosting effects.

Today is my birthday!

I and my husband are going to Olympia WA to spend a day with my mother. My mother is a charming lady. She asked me several times this past week if I was coming to see her. There is excitement in her voice when she plans a surprise for me. I wonder what it will be? The two hour trip to my mom's home will be worthy.

My mother has breast cancer that spread to her bones. The medicine helps her a bit. She is unable to travel. I hope she gets better.

I need to get my husband up. How should I do this task? I can sprinkle his face with water. I can throw the covers off him. I can jump on him. I think I will give kisses, only because he bought me the I phone with all the bells and whistles for my birthday present. Gee- My husband got out of bed by himself and said "Happy Birthday Vicky." It is time to start the celebration. So glad, he woke up on his own free wheel.

My son broke his back on 6/27/09

My son, Zak, age 31 had a horrible accident. The ER called and said my son broke his back during a diving accident, I started screaming and crying. The worst thought came to my mind "quadriplegia." I entered into ER, my son knew who I was, he could move and feel all his extremities. Thank God! No spinal cord injury. He did fracture 5 vertebra in the T2 to T4 and 2 fractured ribs. He has a long 5 month recovery, conservative methods instead of surgery. He has three step children and a lovely wife.

My son worked in Canada and lived in the USA. Canada would not pick up his medical expenses. He is struggling to survive this horrible incident. We received a few donations to help with rent, food and gas bills. If anyone, could donate money to help my son it would be appreciated greatly.
