Consignment Shopping - Its Amazing What you Find

I love a good deal... whether it's a BOGO or clearance rack... or consignment, I love finding the "treasures" amongst all the stuff. 

Last week while Bella was having her surgery, I stopped over at one of our local consignment shops.  Mainly to say "Hi" to a friend that works there, but also to see "what's new" on the racks.  I brought her an iced coffee, set it down and BLAM!  Like a bolt of lightening hit my eye!  THIS is what I saw...

Which then was immediately followed by I.Have.To.Have.That.Right.NOW!!!  Yes, I can make my own jewelry, but more importantly each piece I wear has to represent me.  This bracelet was WOW, sparkly!  Love the swarovski Montees... (fuchsia) love the Czech FP Rounds, love the gunmetal square-ish chain ... oh.my.word.  Just like Cinderella's glass slipper, it was the perfect fit for my tiny wrists!  And it was calling me, "Dawnnnnnnnnn, take me homeeeeeee!"

So I did, and I had to get a great shirt to go with... And it just so happened that there was the most adorable fuchsia shirt hanging right there on the rack.  AMAZING!  Let's call it Serendipity and they all lived happily ever after!

The moral of the story:  There's something beautiful around every corner.  You just have to have your eyes open to find it! 

Have a beautiful day!
