To let myself down easy I told myself that it was probably going for way more than I could pay anyway...probably had about 5 snipers! So I got home and checked ended auctions...guess what? NO BIDS!! The seller did not have enough keywords I guess...so not enough views? were other collectors not home...just like me? Who cares...I was sooo excited...I emailed the seller to see if they'd re-list...they said yep!...So I waited all week again....and this time it seemed like they had even less of a description. Good news for me. I was the only bidder! got it for 29.00! LOOOVE it!! It came from P.A. It is pretty much the exact color of our bedroom walls!! (minty aqua)
Here's our princess bear taking it out for a test drive...The bear is made by the toooo tooo talented Missy Ballance. You may remember her ( Miss bear, not Missy Ballance) sitting at a piano in our old apt...years ago. She's a long treasured item in my home and I love her more than ever. Pink mohair...vintagey paper sash....and tiara. Big head...Missy is seriously one of the most creative gals around!! Alllways up to something new and I can say...she's quite possibly the Queen of cute! You have to check her blog and site out!! She is amaaazing!!
I seriously felt my hear skip a beat...and I don't think it had anything to do with mitral valve prolapse! This piece didn't whisper...it screamed "Buy me Jenny!!!" I LOOOVE it so so much!! I don't buy an excess of jewelry. Every piece I buy is so carefully selected...because I'm fickle and I'm frugal. This necklace is the perfect balance of gothic glamour ...vintage...antique...kitsch. I LOVE it so much. Found it on Etsy...You must check out Lara's shop! Be sure to tell her that Jenny sentcha!!
Ok, that's it for now. Just wanted to get the ball rolling over here. I owe you guys more frequent posts...and since I'm still in the honeymoon phase with Blogger I think I'll be posting plenty!
