Wind Chimes, the Gift of Music

Ever since childhood, I’ve been a musical person. At the age of seven, I started taking piano lessons. When I was a teenager, I began singing solos at community events. Not surprisingly, I adore wind chimes. Every time the wind blows, these beautiful music makers spring into action. Their soothing, melodious, and high pitched sound calms and refreshes me. I am amazed at the amount of eclectic wind chimes available for sale at various retailers. One can enjoy the music of pig, cat, or even seashell themed wind chimes. If you know someone who enjoys natural harmonies, wind chimes make a perfect gift. On this blog, you will discover how to buy the right set of wind chimes for your loved one. Enjoy!

Need To Determine A Ring Size? This Guide Will Help

Tyler Morgan

If you're in the market for an engagement ring, and you want it to be a surprise, you may not know what size to get. Your love can always have the ring sized after you give it, but it's always better if the ring fits immediately. This guide helps you figure out which size will work best, although you might have to be a little sneaky to covertly obtain this information.

Method 1: Measure the Finger

Wait until the recipient is sleeping and quietly perform these steps:

Step 1: Cut a string to about 6-inches long. If you can't find a string, use a piece of paper, cut thin.

Step 2: Wrap the string around the finger as gently as you can so you don't wake up the recipient. When the end meets the long part of the string, grasp it with your fingers and pull it off gently and quickly.

Step 3: Use a marker or a pen to make the spot where your fingers are. Hint: Don't remove your fingers before marking the position.

Step 4: Find a ring-sizing chart and compare it to the string to obtain the size. If you prefer, tuck the string away and take it with you to the jewelry store. Give it to the sales associate so they can get the right size.

Method 2: Steal an Existing Ring

If you're not willing to take the risk of waking the recipient up while measuring their finger, you can always become a thief instead of a covert spy. Wait until the recipient is in the shower and take a ring that they wear all the time.

You'll have two choices once you have the ring in hand, and you'll need to act quick so you don't risk getting caught.

Your first option is to grab an unlined piece of paper. Place the ring on it and then use a pencil to trace the inside circumference of the ring. Then, set the ring back where you got it, before the recipient notices its disappearance.

If paper isn't available, hide the ring and deal with the recipient's freak out when they notice the missing ring. Put on your best poker face and go to the jewelry store, such as Heritage Jewelers, with the ring so the associate can get the right size. Once done, set the stolen ring in the general area that you got it from, just make sure you don't get caught.

If you really want to surprise someone with an engagement ring, find another sneaky method to find out the right size if neither of these two options are feasible. Share this with others who might want to buy a ring secretly but don't know what size to purchase.
