Postal Pretties

When something comes in the mail there is a little excitement. Even if it is something I ordered, when I find a package in my mail box, I smile. It feels good.

Joanna held a giveaway on her blog, The Fifty Factor. I clicked on the link to Izzy's etsy shop and was drawn to the copper combined with other materials to make unique jewelry. Me, the person with bundles of will power, could not resist a bracelet too sweet for words, so I ordered the bracelet.

What followed was a continuation of the sweetness I found on Izzy's etsy. When Izzy read that I found her on Joanna's blog, Izzy refunded the shipping charge to my pay pal account and emailed me that she was doing that. A couple emails later, Izzy and I had found some common ground. Izzy is a lovely and dear woman.

When the USPS box arrived in the mail, inside what looked like a gift box with a bow was even more sweetness. The handmade unique jewelry arrives in the mail ready to give as a gift. In my case, the gift was to myself! Along with the bracelet that I had ordered was a pair of earrings to match. I wore the jewelry the very same day, my first time to venture out to dinner with my friend Vicki. My pictures don't do the jewelry justice.

 Many thanks to Joanna for introducing me to the talents and sweetness of Izzy. And thanks to Izzy for the surprises she sent my way. Pinch me now, how did I deserve so many blessings?

I think our little community (well, not really so little) here in Blogaritaville is a wonderful and sweet way to make new friends. Now I will need to go over there and introduce myself to Izzy. She does indeed sound like a keeper! :-)

Izzy said...

You are so sweet! Sending you a big hug!

Jeanie said...

I am like you about getting something in the mail and you got something very special indeed. You got some great new jewelry and made a new friend.

The bracelet is not miniature, but it is sweet and petite. The copper is a lovely look on my wrist. The earrings are perfect size for me too. And the copper color looks good at my face. I felt good wearing them.

CiCi said...

DJan, my only intention in visiting Izzy's etsy site was to see what the jewelry looked like and when I saw the bracelet I was so drawn to it I ordered it. And then the blessings began with the an email from Izzy. She is a very dear woman with special talent and a generous heart.

CiCi said...

Izzy, hugs from you are special. Thank you so much for everything.

CiCi said...

You said it! Perfect way of saying it too. I like bracelets and am enjoying wearing my new bracelet with different outfits. Did you see Izzy's jewelry? I forwarded her etsy link to my daughters.

Unknown Mami said...

Beautiful. What a wonderful way to spread some joy.

CiCi said...

Yes, Bill, the box with the bow made it like a gift to myself instead of an average order. You should send Izzy's link to your daughters.

CiCi said...

The combination of copper and silk in the bracelet is such a treat.

CiCi said...

Yes, Izzy is beyond nice. No wonder Joanna is fond of Izzy. If you ever want a special gift for your wife, check out Izzy's etsy site.

CiCi said...

You know what it feel like when you wear something pretty and it makes you feel Pretty? The jewelry does that.

Ina in Alaska said...

Mrs4444 said...

It's beautiful! It's no surprise to me that you would receive such kindness--What goes around comes around. :)

I've read a few posts today where good surprising things are happening to people I read in blogland and it has made my Sunday. Lovely bracelet.

Abby said...

Wow, how cool is that?!

terri said...

It sounds like the gift you gave yourself became so much more than just a little gift of jewelry. I'm happy for you!

LL Cool Joe said...

Aww how cool, and especially the gift wrapped box. I buy most of my things on-line and I love getting a parcel in the post, although my postman always rings on the bell to give me the parcel and I feel a bit embarrassed that he has yet another parcel for me. :D

CiCi said...

Yes, life is calm but full now. Busy with new things and new friends. Last night one friend called me to invite me to dinner with her and her husband. Fun!

CiCi said...

There is something earthy about the combination of silk material wrapped on the ends with copper wire and the copper decoration.

CiCi said...

It is still surprising to have kind and thoughtful things happen. What a blessing to be showered in loveliness and hospitality.

CiCi said...

Isn't the blogging world an amazing place? Who would have thought ten years ago we would be bloggers and enjoy friendships like this online?

CiCi said...

Hi Abby, yes indeed cool and special.

CiCi said...

So rarely do I desire things so when I saw the bracelet I knew I would wear it often and enjoy the feeling. Thank you for being happy for me.

CiCi said...

Where you live does the postman leave the box at the door for you if you do not answer the ring? Here the boxes are left at the door.

Rock Chef said...

Wonderful! There are some great people out there, aren't there?

CiCi said...

Now that I am taking time to meet people and get to know them in person and online, I am pleased with the dear kind people still on this earth.
