My Birthday Presents

Last Tuesday was my birthday.  Because I have been making so many new friends through Link Love on Facebook, I wanted to support them by purchasing from some Etsy shops.  So I asked my husband for a "gift certificate" for Etsy and he agreed.  Off I went to go shopping!  There is nothing better than sitting in your pjs, curled in your favorite chair and shopping with someone else's money - and buying hand made!!  So here are my purchases.  Make sure you check out these shops - they have lots of wonderful things!

This lovely pendant is blue sea glass with a small pearl and a purple heart.  It was created by Mermaids Tears. She can be found at

Next I HAD to have a pursekey from Dean Designs.  I have been eyeing them for a while and now was the time.  Tracie asked me my colors and what made my heart sing.  In only a couple of days she created a beautiful custom pursekey in blues and purples.  My favorite stars and moons were mixed in throughout. And as a birthday treat, Tracie added a pair of matching earrings.

And the earrings:

Another new friend and talented lady is Meredith from Meredith Beads.  I loved many of her pieces and had a hard time choosing.  But in the end, this lovely bracelet called my name and came home to live with me!

Well, that used up all my birthday money, but I couldn't resist these beautiful earrings from Dean Designs!  So I treated myself!!

Lastly, my wonderful sister gave me a gift certificate for her shop!  That was great fun.  After much deliberation I choose this beautiful turquoise pendant.

Let's pretend it's your birthday! Check out these great shops on Etsy and find your special piece of jewelry!!  Then add your comment to share what you would pick for your gift.  What a great way to find some new great Etsy shops!!

Have fun!
