Enchanted mirror - yet again another post

No, this website will stay up. It chronicles exactly what happened and there are no lies in it. Just because Barbara paid me back and possibly sent merchandise out after years of waiting does not make the situations unhappen.

Here's the definition of 'slander':


1. defamation; calumny: rumors full of slander.
2. a malicious, false, and defamatory statement or report: a slander against his good name.
3. Law. defamation by oral utterance rather than by writing, pictures, etc.
–verb (used with object)
4. to utter slander against; defame.
–verb (used without object)
5. to utter or circulate slander.

So, before any of you throw any more words around you better check out the actual meaning.

And, Barbara, if you actually knew how to count, then you would have noticed that there is another customer who commented once on this website, who's been waiting for years, under the name of 'Reggie'. Guess what, it's an unhappy customer of yours. from Ebay. You just used a bogus tracking number after the ebay complaint, but he actually never received your product. I just don't think that the's tracking this website. And I bet there are many others out there, that just haven't found the website and that's why they haven't written here. Most people don't want to make waves and will just quietly swallow things. Obviously, those of us here on this site aren't that way.

This blog will stay up and potential customers can make up their own mind and decide whether they want to order from Enchanted mirror / Timeless Finery or not.


  1. Guess what? "Reggie" has not contacted me with any invoice # OR eBay transaction # so, to me, is another "anonymous" person jumping on the bandwagon.
    I REQUEST that "Reggie" email me his/her items missing, and invoice or ebay auction item numbers so I can get this "missing" order to "Reggie".
    Let's see if that happens :)

    And thank you, Michaela.
    I never expected, or asked you to remove the blog. Just do what you feel you need to do, to make yourself feel better, my dear.
    That is what I do, as well.

    xoxo Barbara

  2. So now it took you "years" to receive a refund? Previously, you had stated 10 months.

  3. Others waited years is what I get from it, and from reading the entire blog.

    Michaela was very clear in that she opted for a refund in lieu of merchandise.


  5. The Tiahrt AmendmentsJanuary 8, 2010 at 11:28 AM

    The Tiahrt Amendments, named for their original sponsor, U.S. Representative Todd Tiahrt (R-KS), are provisions attached to federal spending bills that make it harder for law enforcement officers to aggressively pursue criminals who buy and sell illegal guns. The amendments restrict cities, states and even the police from fully accessing and using Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) gun trace data, which can show where illegal guns are coming from, who buys them and how they get trafficked across state lines and into our communities. Furthermore, the Tiahrt provisions require the Federal Bureau of Investigation to destroy certain background check records within 24 hours, making it nearly impossible to use those records to help solve crimes or to identify gun buyers with criminal histories who were mistakenly approved. The Tiahrt Amendments also block ATF from requiring gun dealers to conduct inventory checks to detect loss and theft, which law enforcement says is a dangerous back channel source for criminals who are in the market for illegal guns.

    For years, the Tiahrt Amendments have been standing in the way of law enforcement efforts to stop the flow of illegal guns to criminals. But now, a coalition of 340 mayors and 200 police chiefs have called for repealing these damaging restrictions. And the coalition is pleased that President Obama, both during the campaign and since taking office, has taken a common sense stand against gun crime by joining the call for the Tiahrt restrictions to be removed.

    How Tiahrt Harms Law Enforcement
    While some components of the Tiahrt Amendments were improved in 2007, several damaging provisions continue to tie the hands of law enforcement.

    State and local authorities are still restricted from having full access to aggregated trace data:
    The Tiahrt Amendments force gun trace data requests to be made in connection with individual criminal investigations or prosecutions, blocking full access to the aggregate data that law enforcement need to examine gun trafficking patterns and make key connections between separate cases. Furthermore, state and local governments are prohibited from seeing trace data or using it in administrative license reviews.

    NICS background check records are still destroyed within 24 hours:
    The Tiahrt Amendments require the Justice Department to destroy the record of a buyer whose NICS background check was approved within 24 hours. This makes it harder to catch law-breaking gun dealers who falsify their records, and it makes it more difficult to identify and track straw purchasers who buy guns on behalf of criminals who wouldn't be able to pass a background check.

    ATF still does not have the power to require dealer inventory checks to detect lost and stolen guns:
    While dealers must notify ATF if they discover that guns from their inventories have been lost or stolen, the Tiahrt Amendments prevent ATF from requiring gun dealers to conduct annual physical inventory checks to detect losses and thefts. ATF reported that in 2007 it found 30,000 guns missing from dealer inventories based on its inspection of just 9.3% of gun dealers.

  6. Barbara Joy McLuin, as of November 20th, 2012, was arrested on 6 counts of ANIMAL CRUELTY and 1 Count of CRUELTY TO A PERSON.

    Her Karma, that she talks so much of, finally caught up to her, so it seems.

    This says it all.
    CASE CLOSED. I'll pray for you, Barbara.

  7. 2015

    Last week, Barbara Joy McLuin, 54, of Loganville, was convicted of cruelty to an elder person in the Walton County Superior Court.

    According to Alcovy Circuit Court Assistant District Attorney Jacqueline Payne, the conviction carries a maximum 20-year sentence. McLuin will be sentenced by Alcovy Circuit Court Superior Court Judge Eugene Benton on Aug. 26, 2015.

    Payne said the conviction stems from McLuin’s arrest in 2012 following a call from her Loganville home regarding a medical emergency with her elderly mother.

    “On Nov. 20, 2012, the defendant called 911 to request EMS assistance at her home in Loganville. She reported that her 80-year-old bedridden mother was suffering from an altered mental state,” Payne said. “Walton County Fire and EMS responded to the call and found the home to be unlivable. They reported it to law enforcement and removed the victim from the residence. The Walton County Sheriff’s Office, Animal Control, and Code Enforcement responded to the scene. Due to the conditions inside of the home, the house was declared uninhabitable. The victim was transported to Clearview Regional Medical Center and treated for various medical issues related to bed sores and infection.”

    According to the WCSO incident report, some 15 – 20 cats also were removed from the home by animal control. McLuin was also charged with animal cruelty, but was found not guilty on that charge, according to Payne. Officials confirm McLuin is the same Barbara Joy who is a member of a Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac Tribute band.

    The case was investigated by WCSO and prosecuted by Payne along with Victim Services Director Kim Roberts. A jury convicted McLuin on Aug. 6, 2015 and she is currently being held at the Walton County Detention Center awaiting sentencing.
