What a lovely surprise was waiting for me at the Post Office today. I knew it was on it's way, but it was still a surprise to actually see it in person. I recently won a beautiful pearl and leather bracelet from a giveaway the very sweet and uber talented Mickey had over at Nicholas Landon Jewelry. It's from her Jackie Kennedy line, and here's what is written about it . . .
Le Classique Freshwater pearls
Our own cut and rolled by hand leather…the quintessential set of pearls knotted on fine leather gracefully encircles the wrist for an instant look of simple elegance…this classic set reminds me of the famous pearls worn by Jackie Kennedy...i think she would have loved that she could wear these sailing, swimming or for a stroll along the beach...
Let me say, these are the very first real pearls I have ever owned and I absolutely adore this bracelet! I put it on as soon as I opened it and let me tell you, it felt luxurious and I am spoiled. Just look at me wearing it to the shore for some beach combing!
Back home I headed out to the garden to harvest some of my peas that seemed to have appeared almost overnight.
This is my first year for growing peas and didn't get the early start on them like I know you're supposed to do, but I remembered I had a special little covered aluminum pea pot that I ran inside to get to harvest them with.
And here are my organic purple beans that I grew from seed too.
Fun with peas and pearls!
Then add some purple beans and marvel at the surprise on the inside. Yes, they are green too!!
Henri took this picture today while I continued to beach comb.
Henri, who of the two of us, was the first to own a real pearl (also from Mickey). You can read all about it here. I still can't believe I won this gorgeous bracelet, but it has fast become a cherished treasure from a very special blog friend. Thank you so much Mickey!
