Asa's Amber Teething Necklace

I have wanted an Amber Teething necklace for a long while now, but not having a teething baby I couldn't really justify a teething necklace. Actually, *I* could have, Mr. G however...... Anyway, Asa has been teething for quite some time and having a miserable time of it. He is *such* a big baby. :-) So, I finally got to order the necklace! When I first heard about these I thought it was complete bunkum; I mean, give me a break, how can amber beads kill pain? But a gal whose Father is a pharmacist said that there is indeed science behind it, amber was commonly added to medications because it is an analgesic. Far be it from me to dispute science. I guess it's fairly commonplace to use them elsewhere in the world and they are catching on here amongst crunchy folks. I got mine from Tiny Birds Organics, a nifty, thoroughly crunchy, Texas based company who appears to be sold out of the necklaces right now. :-/
I blogged about my Robert Land boots here. They are size 7B in great shape and I'd like to sell them or barter for them. They are $140 new and I'd like $85 for mine. Hopefully I can find a new home for them since we won't reenact anymore.
Syrup season is almost upon us and we're gearing up for a (hopefully) great year!


  1. What does size 7B translate into store-bought sizes?

  2. Paris,

    I had never heard of those rings--sounds neat.

    Can I ask why you have decided not to re-enact any more?

  3. Chandra, 7B is a size 7 in a regular (not wide) width.

    Zebu, it just doesn't fit with the direction my life is heading. :-)

  4. Oh, I see. Thank you for being willing to share.

  5. Hmmm.....well, I've never heard of such a thing! I need to get one of those for Victoria, although at the rate she's going, she'll have a full mouth full of choppers before it gets here. ;) She BIT me twice last night. TWICE! With EIGHT teeth! Ow.

    I'm sorry to hear you're not reenacting anymore, but I understand. Since I got married, I've noticed a distinct decrease in my reenacting. It seems to have gotten unusually political...around Texas, at least.
