It's My Party and I'll Buy if I want to.

Today happens to be my birthday, so I decided that I'm old enough to buy myself a few presents. These days, I'd much rather pick something out myself than be given something that I won't use (no matter how much I appreciate the thought). And since one of my new goodies came from her shop, I think this is a good time to showcase Elizabeth Scott.

I now have two pair of earrings from esdesigns, which is Ms. Scott's Etsy shop. I wear my others, a lovely pair from her petal series, almost daily. I know these don't fit into our usual upcycled featured pieces, but she was actually the second shop I ever purchased from on Etsy and that wondeful experience has stayed with me. I've had quite a few packages from Etsy purchases show up in the mail since then, but none have had quite the same feeling as that one from her. Aside from the beautiful jewelry, the buyer can expect a pretty little green package carefully adorned with a little green bow. No gimicks. No pile of promotions. Just elegant simplicity. I couldn't be happier if it were a blue box from Tiffany's.
