    This is fabulous, Sarah! Did you pick these because of their Asian names or because they look Asian or both? Whatever, this is a terrific combo! Into the faves…. :D

  2. FaeryGoth Chick
    FaeryGoth Chick says:

    Thanks Lynn! I chose these for both the reasons you mentioned. I love new jade and wanted to do something with it. Jade makes me think of China so this one was born :-)

  3. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    The New Jade is so light and pretty — looks like it would go with a lot of other gems! :D

    I’ve never been to any Asian countries. Have you?

    This is so wonderful – I love this combination – so many of my favorite stones!!!

    Thank you Leigh!
    No Lynn, I haven’t been to Asia yet. I would love to go to China and Thailand though. Maybe some day…

    FaeryGoth Chick says:

    This pick is acting strange… Mystery things happen at LB :-)

  7. Leigh D
    Leigh D says:

    That has happened to me too – I will name a pick and would swear I saved it with that name but when I go back it has that craxy number instead of the name I chose – I believe that there are computer fairies that come and add icons, take icons away, mix things up etc, etc, etc LOL ;-)

  8. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I saw the name change on the Main Page of the Garden, but now it’s back to the first one….. oooooooh

  9. FaeryGoth Chick
    FaeryGoth Chick says:

    So you have experienced this before. Strange indeed. You maybe right Leigh, but I think that pixies are responsible :-) They are the naughty ones LOL

    Naughty Pixies!! HAHAHAHA

    I had that happen the other day on my AquaKitty and Tad hunt for new beads series of 4 picks. I had named them and written those long descriptions, saved them, gone out of Fresh Picks, came back in and they were still there, came back in later to “share” them by turning them on and the titles were back to numbers and the descriptions were all gone!!! AAARRRGGGHHH Had to write everything all over again….. :( 8x

  12. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    OK, that last thing was supposed to be this: 8x

  13. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Let me try again! :x

    Leigh D says:

    Oh No Lynn – how frustrating!!!!!

    Sarah – I love the way these Asian elements all work together.

    My frustration is when there’s an apparent problem with internet explorer. If it shuts down, I lose my log in and anything in my shopping cart that is not from the BGBM. So if I want Tuesday Lunch specials, I have to order them by Tuesday night or I might lose them.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I e-mailed Steve and asked him if there were any other smiley faces on this site that we weren’t aware of. He sent me back a really nice e-mail with a list of all the ones available to us on LB!

    Here are the smiley faces that Steve said we should be able to do on this site. As always, just omit the plus signs I included.

    8+) 8)
    8+O 8O

    The second one is an O, not a zero. The o & x near the bottom are lower case. The long straight line is on the key above my enter key. Happy Smiling!

    Chicky Hugs,

    Sarah, I have the same problem that Jeanne just wrote about. So frustrating!!! :x

  20. FaeryGoth Chick
    FaeryGoth Chick says:

    Thank you Jeanne! So that is your secret source Lynn LOL I was wondering how the hell you know all these smilies :-) thanks for sharing it! Jeanne and Lynn, that is indeed a frustrating problem but I can give you one advice: through out that stupid internet explorer! I use safari or firefox and that works so much better. I never seem to have that problem but I have to admit, I don’t use windows either. Piece of crap! I have a mac and I am very content with it! At work I have to use windows and explorer and there, I have much more problems than at home. But my hubby is an IT nerd so that helps :-) I love him dearly…

  21. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Steve is a great source of important info for us! LOL

  22. Leigh D
    Leigh D says:

    Ahh yes the Smiley discussion. Lynn and I had the message/alert thing burning one day practicing the ones we knew and trying to discover new ones. They are so fun

  23. FaeryGoth Chick
    FaeryGoth Chick says:

    I need to adapt, I only know a few but now I can practice ;-)

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    You’re welcome, Cathy! Guess there’s no mystery left to Chicky LE anymore…. LOL

  35. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    This is gorgeous. Gives me some inspiration for a girlfriend of mine that loves Asian themes. I did make her a necklace for her birthday one year and she loved it b/c the pendant on it had friend spelled in Chinese or Japanese characters. Thanks to Chicky LE for the smiley help too. I was wondering how those were made….

    Regina v says:

    There are a number of cool things in here that I never found searching about the site. Thanks Sarah – it must of taken some digging to find and assemble all of these!

    Oh yeah;

    Marvelous, wonderful, awesome, Sarah! I love the softness of the colors, and the Asian influence. The Vintaj pieces are so perfect with that beautiful jade. Fave! :D
    Also, thanks, Lynn, for that educational interlude regarding smileys. Now we all get to see how many of them I can mess up! LOL ;)

  46. FaeryGoth Chick
    FaeryGoth Chick says:
