Presents for No Reason

All the way from Milwaukee - exciting!!

Nearly there...

 A couple of weeks ago I made my first purchase on Etsy...I'd been signed up for AGES but just never had the time to look for things that I want.  But a couple of weeks ago I stumbled across this lovely blog and shop, BridebluI was looking through the shop in order to enter a competition on another blog site, and ended up falling in love with a collar-shape necklace.  So instead of winning a necklace I actually bought one...but I think that was the purpose, so let's say in this case I was a sucker for the advertising! Hehe.

So only 10 days later and after a reasonably crap Friday, I came home to find a lovely parcel in my mailbox, all the way from the U.S.  It was so exciting that I actually ripped the package with my teeth!  Inside was a beautiful little box, wrapped with ribbon, and it was such a surprise to see it so lovingly packaged that I just wanted to let it be known.  Not only did it make my day, but the necklace I'd bought was even cooler in real life.  

So overall I had paid only NZ$20 including postage for something beautiful from the other side of the world, I had supported another crafter and cheered myself up all at the same time. 

The lesson kids?  Buy yourself presents for no reason, and they magically appear just when you need them. x

  1. Hooray! I am so thrilled to see this post, I can't even tell you ... wow! You look absolutely lovely in your new collar necklace AND I adore how you took a "play by play" approach as the package was opened (the suspense was KILLING me :)

    On a related note ... you are so much more disciplined than I am ... I think the first week I signed up for Etsy I clicked "purchase" at least a half a dozen times :)

    Enjoy your new BrideBlu! xxCat
