a purchase, prizes & birthday

It's been a busy month here at bailybelle creations and I've neglected you my lovely blog readers. I apologize. Would a little eye candy cheer you up? I'm sure it will.

Recently, I saw Hollie from Blueberryshoes post a photo on FB of some beyond fabulous feather earrings. They were long and neutral in color with amazing antiqued brass embellishing. I stalked them. Lurking and waiting for her to list them, I drooled. One night she and I got to talking on twitter and I just couldn't contain myself anymore. I had to have those earrings. So, I snuck over to her shop and bought them! So exciting! Then the tough part came...waiting for them to arrive. 

Of course they came quickly and it was like Christmas all over again! I opened the package while dancing around like my son does when he's giddy with excitement. Words can not clearly explain the joy that was found on the inside of that mailing envelope so I'll just show you.... 

Goodies, goodies and more goodies!! What a sweet heart!

Can we just say, talent! Hollie is an amazing artist and the photos here just don't do the cards justice. They are beautiful!

Everybody loves a fun bag of crafty supplies! Can't wait to start playing with the fabulous beads and buttons!

Here they are! The magical, beautiful and amazingly comfortable feather earrings!

Here I am on my way to my birthday dinner so excited to be wearing my new earrings! 

Wow, no if that wasn't amazing enough, I also received a package from my lovely friend Jenny of BlackStone Pottery! Holy crap! Again, I danced around silly with anticipation. I remember sitting with her in MN crafting and admiring her lovely pottery jewelry. Gorgeous work! Anyway, when I finally calmed down enough to get the scissors through the envelope I was again, simply giddy! Here's what she sent me...

Ooooh, so mysterious and sophisticated! What's inside???!

Wow, I'm one lucky lady! Jenny sent me one of her beautiful handmade pottery pendants! Swoon!

The color is a wonderful mossy and neutral green that goes with EVERYTHING! 

While working on taking the photos for this blog post I got yet another package! This time from the wonderful, Meredith from Tilley Jewels. I won a blog giveaway a little while back and completely forgot! haha nothing like a bad memory to make it feel like winning twice! I tore into the package making sure to not drool too much on what was inside! Check out my fabulous prize...

Adorable packaging! I can't wait to see...

More adorable packaging! I love feeling like a pretty princess so this just made my day!

Tada!!! Gorgeousness! Seriously beautiful earrings.

Ok. I sure hope you guys enjoyed the eye candy as much as I did! Make sure you check out these sellers on Etsy. As you can see, you won't be disappointed! 

Hugs and kisses.
