a little extravagance
I am so bad! I just splurged on some Kate Johnson pearl earrings for my 18th century outfit. My only excuse is that I’m a weak woman and expulsive buyer. :P I my defense I’ve been drooling over her creations for years and my involvement in this 18th century group means I’ll have lots of opportunities to wear the earrings. They will be appropriate for many other eras too – pearls are so classic. To bad I won’t get them in time for the Belmont tea. Oh well.

My little Extravagance

*sigh* There goes the new jeans I need. If only everyday clothes were more exciting… they might win out in my personal budget wars more often. *grin*

I've been drooling over the jewelry as well. :) I've already got a pair of pearl earrings that'll work and I want to inquire whether she might be able to make me a pair of the coral ones with a clip back. But I've got to wait until later this month to see if I could afford a little splurge. ;) lol.

And you know, you can wear them for everyday as well--I do all the time!! :D

Oh yes, everyday wear was one of the big justifications to myself when I bought them. I don't know how much I will actually wear them though, I'm more in a large earring phase at the moment. :>

That is really odd... I'm in a small earring phase right now! I can't wait to see you model the ones you ordered! :)

I just wanted to say, randomly enough, that your icon there cracks me up.

Heheheh...

Those are so cute and just like the pearl earrings I bought a few months ago (minus those little beads atop the pearls). I thought them very elizabethan-esque - in Shakespeare in love they are always wearing pearl drops!

Yay, happy purchase!

Very cute! I love her jewellery. I have her rose quartz earrings, matching necklace and of course my cat miniature :)

Someday I have one of her miniatures... I'm determined! I almost bought some rose quartz earrings instead - they are so pretty too!
