Some new Pretties!

I received a sweet gift from a friend a few days ago.

Tricia from Hillcrest Home Prims sent me some nail polish she thought I would like. Aren’t the colors perfect for Spring in Florida? I love them! And she included the little hand sanitizer with a holder to hook to your purse or a bag. Thanks so much Tricia!

You know just what I love! These colors look like the pillow in my lanai!

Everyone knows I love Etsy and here are a couple of new favorites.

I bought some Lavender Sea Salts from Laurie B Creations. She lives right here in Florida, close to one of my favorite beaches, Clearwater! And these sea salts are SO luxurious! They smell amazing and leave my skin so soft and smooth. She has some other scents, too and gave me samples of those! Thanks Laurie!

And then I ordered a new bracelet. I love wearing more than one bracelet and this one is made to look like 2. It is SO beautiful….the photos don’t show how pretty it really is. It’s braided aqua leather and then a string of small seashells and it’s perfect!

And she has some other jewelry on my wish list, too! Her Etsy shop is Bone Beach…HERE!

I love pretty handmade things, don’t you?

Do you have a favorite Etsy shop?

The bracelet is so cute and yes, so you! Love the bath salts but I have to be so careful with fragrance! I love Etsy but have been trying to stay away! LOL, I'm on a Paris in September budget!
hugs,

I don't do too much ordering from Etsy because I can't afford it, but I do have my favorite, which I shall keep a secret.

Hmmm...not sure what's going on here with the commenting, but I know this...I said all that and forgot to say what a sweet gift and I think you'll love the bracelet. It looks darling.

I had to put word verification on for awhile because I am getting TONS of Anonymous published! EEEEEE!!!!

I am amazed that you write each day and keep such meticulous records. I would be interested in reading about your journal... It is great to be able to look back and it puts things in perspective somehow. I do like your new bracelets and the people you support on Etsy must appreciate it when you blog about them.

I just love that bracelet. I must drop in and see her shop!
I have only recently begun to wear nail polish..not sure why I started to wear it..but I am totally smitten.
My favorite etsy shop is Skyblue Designs2. I buy my hair barrettes from her. I have a marvelous collection..and always check to see if there is one I cannot live without. I am a "Long Haired Girl" as they call them and always have been. Handmade barrettes are a passion with me. Always on the hunt.
I LOVE it when I come visit you! I can almost smell the salt air! :):)

Lovely gift and purchases! I could get lost on ETSY, Diane! I can't say I have one or two favorite shops --there are so many I can't choose!

What lovely summery things! It really makes me think that summer should be here. At the moment it's really cold here in Wales. We had a few days before that were really hot and made us all think summer was around the corner...but no...not yet. I loved the sea shell and twisted turquoise bangle. So many lovely things! Joan
