Shells and Ships on my wrist

When I saw this fabulous nautical bracelet I was head over heels smitten.  It had several of my favorite nautical beachy icons.

From pearls and shells


to jeweled anchors

Should or shouldn't I? I pondered.
It's kind of large. It's kind of bold and not something I could
wear to work unless it was a meeting only day.

It's really unique,
It's beautifully made

It's too expensive; especially now.
I could wear it.....hmmm I don't really go anywhere.


Look at that dangling anchor.....
I thought about it for a week....and its sort of sister bracelet.

Finally, deciding while I liked them both I could only have one
and even one was way more then I should.


It was the Seahorse toggle that sealed the deal.

I am now ready for dockside cocktails or dining.
In the meantime, my wrist was in all its glory pushing the cart down the grocery store isles.

OOOOh How could you refuse, they are both beautiful!!! Good choices and I can see why it was so hard to choose. I have been looking at a few Spring clothes this week myself and I have had to refuse myself several times. Kathysue

Thank you for your beautiful visit and your comments mean the most to me!

Inspiring the ocean is what I think of when you come for a visit. Thank you for being my friend, you have inspired me more than you know.

You know I saw something similar in Noosa.. not nautical.. but quite eye catching. Apparently imported for France.. so why the price tag!! haha.. needless to say.. still in the shop..

Hope you have a lovely week.. ciao xxxx Julie
