Love at first sight

Sometimes, (no matter how strict you are about money or how tight your budget) you lay your eyes on something and you just know. It's love at first sight and no matter what, you must have it. No mountain is too high, no river too wide...this doesn' t happen to me often, but when it does, I don't fight it. Life has taught me that there are simply some things too good to pass up and regret is certainly not something I plan on living with. I checked Etsy this afternoon to see if there was an update on my ostrich pillow and on the front page I saw this:
Bloom Bracelet $14

In about 1 minute (seriously, this is no exaggeration) it was mine b/c I just knew I had to have it. Then I checked out the shop, Femme Petal, and I have to say I'm pretty smitten. Here's a sample:
Sex and the City anyone?
The Carrie Necklace in Latte $25
This piece makes me want to do the salsa.
Vibrance $30
Simple, nostalgic, the perfect gift.
Fly away $21
source: Femme Petal
There's a vintage, whimsical feel to these pieces that I absolutely adore. I can't wait until I receive my new bracelet and I hope you check out Femme Petal asap!

I'll take the Vibrance! I'm so simple in my accessorizing and I've been slowly stepping out... I'd say this would help me break the mold. I love it!

Ooh--love! The necklace with the sweet poppy is especially fun.

Isn't Etsy dangerous? It's WAY too easy to make purchases!

What a wonderful blog post for an amazing lady. I just purchased one of Erin's necklaces too and I love it. I hadn't seen Vibrance yet, but it's gorgeous! I also love the necklace she has with a rose petal. She does gorgeous work. Proud to be a member of UWIB with her. -kristen
