Birthstone Memories

Art Doodles

A dear friend gave me a gold bracelet with a sapphire stone charm. It’s beautiful!

I like it for three reasons:

1. Gold

2. My birthstone

3. Sri Lanka

Last year, my husband and I with some friends took an adventurous trip to Sri Lanka and Dubai. Sri Lanka is known for its sparkling blue sapphire stones. We went to a gem shop while we were there. I can still remember the glittering different blues dancing before my eyes.

Thank you, Lo, for giving me a daily reminder of a wonderful trip! And of course a little bling to my outfit.

Every day can be improved by a little sparkle!

Earlier this fall, my sister-in-law Becky married Rob! Wahoo!!!

As per usual, a girl’s gotta think about what she is going to wear to this splendid event! I had found this top at Anthropologie, this skirt at Nordstrom and  these Vince Camuto shoes but not any accessories to go with it. What is a girl to do?

In comes East Coast Savvy Shopper, Lori! She is one of the great new additions to our family (Rob’s mom). She found the below pair of earrings at a sweet store in Queen Anne while we were having a mani/pedi time with the ladies. I immediately thought to myself, “Those would be perfect for my outfit!”

The next day, wedding day!, I tried to make what I had in my stash of jewelry for the outfit but the ladies ruled it out. In comes Lori, who graciously let me borrow them for the night. I was thrilled!

I have affinity for all things emerald. My ring is a emerald cut, I think the color emerald is gloriously rich, I live in the Emerald City and I was married during the year of the emerald color. Needless to say, I had to go back to the store to get my own. And I did!

Thank you, dear Lori, for making my outfit complete! Let’s go shopping soon!

Borrowed Emeralds

 These little gems have kept on sparkling as I feel the urge to wear them all the time.
