I have blogged before about the wonderful Phyllis C in Naples, Florida. She has turned out to be a dear friend to me, even though we have never met in person (but I know we will some day!). Phyllis has been teaching Mah Jongg for many, many years and her students always become her dear, dear friends. She saw I had posted my “Ann Israel Eyeglass Leash” (available from Gehazi Collections) and, before you could blink, she had made dear friends with Sandra from Gehazi Collections! No one can resist Phyllis!

Lola, Lisa, Diane and me

Here is an email – along with the above picture – that Phyllis sent to me and to Sandra at Gehazi Collections:

Here I am all decked out with my Mah Jongg eyeglass holder, along with my new gifts of my Mah Jongg bracelet (Mah Jongg Queen) and beautiful earrings given to me by my student and now dear friend, Diane M, in striped pink shirt.  Pictured are my previous students and now best friends, Lola and Lisa. Mah Jongg has given me so much. If the picture doesn’t show my precious Mah Jongg jewelry too well, I will have to try taking another one soon to truly show it off!!  Can hardly wait to show my class – plus my Mah Jongg friends – my treasures!!  So many wonderful friendships.  And I also have you two!!

Much love and hugs, Phyllis C. (Naples, FL.)  


You’ve heard me rave about Sandra at Gehazi Collections before and now I have to do it again! Look what she wrote on Twitter:

From Twitter:  She loved it so much that we named it after her. She said SHE was honored, but the truth is that it is WE are honored to know her! Thank you Ann for being such a wonderful fan and supporter.

Item is about 24″ and is dazzling in black and white.

I wear glasses to read and, of course, to play Mah Jongg. Take a look at this cute eyeglass leash:


I think these are so cute and so clever  – and a great little gift for your Mah Jongg-playing friends. This eyeglass leash came from a company called Gehazi Collections located in my very own home town, Detroit, Michigan! Who knew?! Their tag line is Gemstone and Mah Jongg Jewelry – The New Face of Mah Jongg Jewelry. On the invoice was written: Gehazi means valley of vision. May your life be touched by the inspiration that comes from the valley of vision.
