What a wonderful surprise!

My dear friend, and fellow Etsian, Starry, sent me a lovely package recently. What a total and wonderful surprise!

She said she wanted to remind me of Aussie beaches (I've only ever been to Bondi Beach in Sydney). So sweet of her. :)

Take a look at all the beach-theme goodies that Starry sent me...

Shell earrings (top left), handmade cards and some beads, charms and buttons. Simply gorgeous. I love the earrings ... subtle, beautiful colours.

You can see more of Starry's creations at her Etsy shop and her blog.

I adore Starry's handmade accessories because she often uses unexpected materials in her creations. Take, for example, these beautiful Flower Button earrings. I love that she used vintage-looking buttons as the centre pieces. Also these Hearts & Flowers earrings. I love unexpected touches like these. :) And these Rainbow Saver earrings that she sent me a while ago.

Thank you so much, dear Starry. I hope to reciprocate your kindness one day.

What a lovely, heartfelt gift! :)

I love Etsy. I can browse and click and dream for HOURS. One of these days I'm actually going to buy something. :)

Thank you Jace, your happiness is my happiness.

Christine: I limit my browsing time at Etsy, otherwise I won't get anything else done. :D There are so many extremely talented creators there.

Starry: Thanks again for the lovely gesture and happy thoughts. :)
