Oh Yes I Did!
I am usually careful with my budget, at least when it comes to things for me. I don't need much, I am generally content with what I have.
But this week must have been the exception that proves the rule! First, I bought myself a BEAUTIFUL ring from Simple Daisy. I have wanted this ring ever since she posted it, and by golly, I finally bought it! It came so beautifully packaged that I felt pampered, even though it was a present from me to myself, it felt really special! And I love the ring as much as I thought I would. It is entirely handcrafted, unlike anything you will find on the mass market. The photo doesn't do it justice, my old hands scream "wrinkled" in the picture, so the ring doesn't get the focus it deserves. You really need to see it in person to appreciate it - the band is hand carved, with wonderful designs all around it. I have a lot of unworn jewelry, but I expect this to become an every-day piece. And the name of the ring, Indigo Sea, is perfect for someone like me, who does so much ocean-dreaming. I'm already eyeing my next purchase from her shop, as soon as I can justify another dose of self indulgence. :)
