Re: Q DID WHAT? PRV 12/10-12/11-HOMEDICS AND QVC BROUGHT BACK WHAT?

Hey SPURT, I think this is your best collection of photos yet!  The dog pics are a hoot. I especially like the two pups in the pajamas and the one in the little ducky slippers.  BUT....that Mr. Puff has been at it again, I see.  Sending you a picture of himself in a Santa hat and wreath.  He claims that is really his evil twin.  HA!  He can't fool me.  The picture of the dog staring at the plate of cookies reminds me of my late dog, Dolly, who I rescued from the side of the road as a 4lb, mangy pup - I LOVED that dog, she was a 35lb black and tan mix who was my best bud.  Anyway, I had a Christmas party and a friend came in from the dining room to tell me that Dolly had just helped herself to a plate of cookies off the table.

 

Anyway, a particularly awful few days with WEN, computers, and the back thingy.  And where did David get that huge Le Creuset  mug??!! 

 

It is really C O L D here!  I have really low tolerance for cold weather - there is a reason I live in the South.  Glad my lesson was cancelled because some of my fellow riders are in a show in Aiken.  They are going to freeze!  Riding is supposed to be fun!

The link SPURT provided also talks about how the presentations emphasize where and how to wear clothing or use things. Up to a point I can see this boosting sales, but the hosts often veer into the description of appropriate outfits for every mundane event like walking the dog or a once-a-year outing at a pumpkin patch where one is to have a special shirt and the correct pants, boots, and barn jacket. I have never felt compelled to buy a top so I can pick a pumpkin.

 

Jane T can get on a roll describing where to wear a top and will have you picture yourself as the star of the PTA cupcake party, on a carriage ride in Central Park, and at the ballet, and in the middle of this dialogue throw in a reference to the upcoming Dyson TSV and a family dance recital, all delivered at a speed talking pace without taking a breath or pause. And she is not alone. If this is a good selling tactic, I am definitely not the norm. I got winded just writing this...lol.


@SunValley

 

Yes, the "pumpkin patch pickin" and the MUST HAVE appropriate outfit (and don't forget the matching handbag) is a QVC classic---to me fall hasn't truly arrived until I hear the QVC hosts say those "magic words"---LOL!!! 

 

I think instead of what "events" you can wear outfits to---it would be more informative if they explained what goes with what as far as complimentary colors, textures of fabric that go together and why something was chosen to put the outfit together rather than hearing about the PTA, Christmas Party, date night, lunch with friends, and of course the infamous pumpkin patch etc etc......

 

And yes Jane T always puts her own special spin on things......makes me tired just thinking about it...

SPURT, the other "magic words" are how many of the DB bags, gallons of WEN or Philosphy, JM argan oil, etc. one needs to buy for teacher gifts, people at the bus stop, person who does your nails, the trash guys, etc.   I give to my dog vet, my horse vet, and my horseshoer because they are very important people in my life, and almost irreplaceable  (especially a reliable horseshoer!), but that is it!

Yep, I guess the temps are all relative. I  think the 30's and 40's are coldWoman Tongue, while my friend in Cape Cod and my former roommate in upstate NY think the 40's are downright balmy. 

 

I was looking online at what Lori G had on last night and a lot of the items do not have very good reviews. 

 

I will take your advice and get some Charleston Tea Plantation Earl Grey or Charleston Breakfast tea brewing.  I am going to make some butternut squash soup this weekend, so I should be set!  And I may allow myself one Trader Joe's chocolate covered peppermint JoJo cookie.....HeartAnd I have some good books I downloaded from the library to my NOOK yesterday.

 

Have a good weekend yourself!

Well, Spurt, I'm making a mental note of your post because it is my all time FAVORITE and replaces a rather heartwarming one from someone else a while back.

 

You, dear, are a hoot.

 

Thanks for the laugh this cold December morning.

In all seriousness folks, my HG at this point would be the return of the useful tape measure and ruler, in addition to care instructions & better descriptions of said item's "fabrication".

Its not rocket science (or is it Woman Wink)

You are so right. Gals, start shopping on HSN or go back there. This channel has become a breath of fresh air and fun! 

Daisy Fuentes I fashions are wonderful! Logo has had its day, also SG, Denim and co, should I go on???

@Kachina624 I'm with you on having broken the QVC habit as well.  I check online but seldom switch to the channel - especially not during the holiday selling season.  For whatever reason, their management seems oblivious or maybe they just don't care about lost viewers.


Same here.  I didn't buy even one Christmas gift from QVC.  I did order the Keurig and hope it isn't as cheaply made as some reviews are saying.   I'm buying cosmetics elsewhere now too.  Always get free shipping and even the high-end dept. stores have sales and/or free gifts with purchase.     Can't believe that the best they could do for a TSV today is the Homedics item.
