Down By The Sea

I spent this past weekend cruising through the Vancouver harbour for my friends stagette. The sun was shining, the water was glistening and it was a nautical theme....I was in my element!

I had ordered a pair of anchor earrings from Lisa at Jeweled Ambrosia for my friend a while back and loved them so much, I ended up ordering myself a pair too! I just knew they would work perfectly for the nautical themed stagette. I religiously checked my mailbox, eagerly anticipating their arrival. Unfortunately I didn't receive them in time. But....

The day I got home I had these beauties waiting for me, wrapped in a cute little sparrow stamped box. So worth the wait :)

I was so happy to see that nautical stripes are in this season. I don't know what it is about anchors but I love so much.
I was unwrapping my earrings from the tissue paper like a little girl on Christmas when these beauties rolled out. I thought that it must have been a mistake but to my amazement and delight, Lisa told me they were a gift for being a repeat customer. Thank you so much Lisa. I love love love them!
If you have the chance, check out Lisa's Etsy shop at Jeweled Ambrosia. Her creative designs and one of a kind pieces will make you smile!

How cute are those earrings and she was too sweet sending another pair for being such a good customer! I just love the sailor hats. Looks like it was so much fun!

And yes, all in the name of research, lol!

SO cute that it's called a "stagette!" I love that! ;-) What a fun theme, and a great picture of you all! Sorry the earrings didn't arrive in time, but they are really pretty and I bet you will get good use out of them for years to come, so classic! And isn't it fun to get a little extra treat? It seems like jewelry makers often do that. So special!
